Re: Just putting gas in perspective


Additional thought.  Generally we can do without most of the items listed
but if we plan to travel, to work especially, or just for fun, to hosta
college?, we need gasoline and I challenge anyone to get there in their car
without it.  Our customers are screaming but we need gasoline to get to
their house to do repair and this extra cost is not factored in  so, it
costs them more.  Indeed, I see the inflation coming!
