@Tony Can you see if you can look at the main RCH page? I am having issues loading it. It's taking .15 seconds to load and I think it should be more like .09.

Today started off pretty nice... Swung by Autozone to replace my tire guage ( forgot the other one in my trade-in )...

Then went to fill up the gas tank for the first time since I got the new Escape and got a steal of a deal.... pay close attention to the price per gallon

Then headed on into work which is only 1/3 of a mile from the gas station... and at the first stop light I looked down and saw this...

That's the lowest price I've seen for petrol since I was in Kuwait after the Gulf War when it worked out at US$ 0.144 cent a US/Gal.

In Australia we are paying about US $1.00 per litre = 2.11 Pints

It was a mistake... it was supposed to be $2.39 per gallon but someone typed the decimal in the wrong place.

Dammit Randy, are you trying to start a riot on this forum?! You can't post those gas prices in this day and age!!! :chuckles:

Nice score though, and the store has no choice but to eat it since it was their mistake. I hauled fuel for over 10 years and yea, someone is getting fired over that one if it happened to more than one car. That is a huge loss for the station and they still have to pay all the taxes on that fuel.

And yea, it is cold and rainy here at the house. I'm staying inside lol. I think I will do some iRacing practice :D
