Stop rubbing it in.. it hurts!!  Saw that premium is up to $2.01 here in CT.  
I know we pay very little compare to the rest of the world for gas but 
frankly Scarlet I don't give a damn.  I want cheap gas and fast gas guzzling 
machines with lots of horsepower (my 1978 4X4 1 ton Suburban sits idle on 36 
inch tires with a freshly rebuilt motor).  I am thinking of buying an 
Abrahams battle tank so I can drive my Sub and say I am saving gas by doing 
so.  I want a BIG old gas tank capable of storing the liquefied remains of 3 
whole dinosaurs and burning it all just in time to refill it when I see the 
next station 4 miles down the road.  I know SUV's are not too popular with 
some of us but it was much easier to register than the tank.
