    Well, my wife & I went & got our winter time gasoline today for the generator & the snowblower.
    I think we're going to need every drop of the 10 gals we got today. We are overdue for a major snow storm.

    Our local grocery store has a promotion where you get points for getting a discount off the price of gas, only you have to use Shell gas here. It used to be Exxon, but they switched to Shell this year.
    We had 1700 points & got $1.70 off a gallon of gas. So, we got hi-test for the machines.
    It came to $.75 a gallon for gas. Not bad. Not bad at all.

    Too bad they have a limit of 10 gals & only once a month, or else I'd get gas there all the time.
    But hey, I'll take hi-test for $.75 /gal any day.

    I wish I could find it for $2.39 a gallon. Typically burn mid-grade, but prices jumped considerably here at our little country store since I filled last. Regular was $2.79, mid-grade was $3.49 when I filled up yesterday. Made wish I had stopped in town.

    3.09 at best here - we have the 3rd highest gas price in country-why- we have an absolute d!ckhead Governor- scores worst in spending and taxes in nation. just voted down carbon tax- which would have raised gas prices another 20-30 cents with no accountability as to how money would be spent- GRRRRR - ya do not want to talk to me about gas prices... we go 20 miles to Idaho every chance we get-50-60 cents cheaper... grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    We fixed that problem before it arose, voted the d!ckhead for a governor down. Losing a good one, however he's replacing a senator that isn't worth a damn so all is well.

    We are not so lucky- pretty good sized state- but population in 2 counties pretty much control election. Last 2 elections we have passed gun laws that put us up there with strictest in nation. a 10/22 ruger is now an assault weapon in our state...... This new law will probably end up in Supreme Court for a final decision. Still talking about taking dams out in Idaho to save the salmon thus save the Orcas in area but will absolutely do nothing about the sea lions- now river lions devouring salmon by the ton. Nor will we do anything about the gill nets that catch them by the 1000's. agenda driven ta hell with science- It is those damned Idahoans and their damned dams..... 300 miles upstream.......... no mention of the 5-6 washington/Oregon dams before The Idaho ones- Nosireebob........
