Re: US Gas Prices: Detroit

The gas prices here in the Tacoma, Washington area have gone up almost 30
cents in the last month.  I can also afford this, even if I don't like it.
I did have a fit when my wife, who rarely fills the tank on her Suburban,
asked if premium would hurt the motor!!!!!  She put $60 in, where it
normally has been about $45.  I can here the chuckes of all the Anti SUV
listers now.
