remember that shell station that i mentioned awhile ago whose prices were so high? well, about a month ago, their prices jumped again: $4.33/gallon for the low-grade. then the owner announced his high prices were in response to shell raising his lease. recently, the station closed, but not before offering $2.99 gas at a "discount." i feel bad for the people who paid $4.33!
in other petrol-related news, todd drove me to the airport and back recently for a business trip, and i submitted his time for a mileage reimbursement. we're getting back $15, which is about what he pays for... a month's worth of gas! guess that's what happens when you drive a hybrid AND carpool with 2 other people to and from marin. being green is sexy.
