Well, we're now paying $3.29.9@ gallon for regular unleaded and folks are lined 
up at the pumps like it's their last chance. High test is running $3.69.9. 
(This is upstate NY.)
I remember gas wars back in the 50's where there were gas stations on each of 4 
corners and they had prices down to 0.20.9 @ gallon, and they filled the tank, 
checked the oil and cleaned the windshield and whats more smiled while they did 
it. I also remember when gas prices went to the 30 cent range and everyone was 
irate. So I wonder if moonshine will run a car? Anyone down there in Tennessee 
or West Virginia have any idea? 

Hell, at this rate, in a few weeks I'll be running everything on race fuel!
