    No, how it works is a white guy (Stripe) owns the company and has someone of minority as the company president. That way you can get all the government contracts that are ear marked for minority companies, of coarse the white guy (Stripe) makes all the money...but you'll have a nice title

    Gas here in Michigan @2.95 gal

    Yep, and about 50% of that is duty.

    I'm assuming that the prices for gas are for regular grade and not premium?Here in Massachusetts gas is selling for $2.85.And don't forget Phish,many Americans own gas hog SUV's and work more than 1 mile away.I work 20 miles away.I was getting away with $30/wk,now probably $40/wk.Luckily I work 3 days one wk and 4 days on the next etc.Cali is a big state to navigate for you and Stripe.How much are you guys going to spend a wk.
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    I rode my BIKE today (saturday) to work. It felt good to burn some calories. It was cold as balls this morning and on the jaunt back in the afternoon, much hotter. Saved some on the petrol bill.

    Two days ago I filled up my tank, it was about $65 US dollars (7500 yen) in a Nissan Silvia LOL

    I'm at about $45 a week as it is...and we're only up to $2.79 so far. Of course working 7 days a week to try and make up for it.

    Stop complaining guy's.....my gas bill exceeds 150.00 bucks per week for both vehicles...the Titan being the hog....I use both for delivery...but the prices keep going up...currently paying $3.19 per gallon for premium....makes no sense to buy the cheap crap when for a couple bucks more I can get high test....had to start adding a delivery charge to each order to help cover costs.....this su*ks...

    Well Piper, since I am paying at least 2.79 for gas on 4 vehicles, Silverado 2500HD, Tahoe, Explorer, and a Toyota Pre-Runner I can feel the pain.

    And sorry but I simply will not pay the price for Premium.
