Around '98 or so, gas was .75 in King George, VA. Sheetz and Wawa were always competing.

I just sold a Honda Civic that I had for 14 yrs. During that time I filled it for less than $10, and then later for more than $40.

Remember back in 99 when i had the Parasail biz i was buying diesel for the big boat for .83 a gallon and it pissed me off that i had to pay 1.26 for gas for the inflatable shuttleboat and that was on the water.

So please expleane to me adain Loosie why de diesel is more than gas now.
