No. I pay 3.18 for a gallon of gas. I think. Maybe 3.28.

But even so, your change is a bit more than pennies.

You can buy two gallons of milk for 5 bucks.

I have no idea what a pack of cigs cost and I don’t really care.

I paid 3.49 a gallon for gas and quite coincidentally the very same for milk just today.

Orange juice however remains more expensive than gasoline.

I find it a bit ironic that a product from Florida USA that doesn't require refining is more expensive than a product the raw material for which must be shipped half way around the world before they can even begin turning it into a useful product.

$4.50 in Albuquerque, $7.00 in Chicago, $9.00 in New York, and I do care.

What can you buy with your $0.80 change after buying a gallon of gas?

“You can buy two gallons of milk for 5 bucks.”

Where? Milk is over $5 a gallon in these parts.
