My tank was on Empty

My tank was on Empty last night coming home from work and I was shocked to see gas prices were headed up. The cheapest price I could find was $2.99/gallon so I opted to drive home and use the "reserve" gas I purchased last week.

Lets see how I made out:
I originally purchased 4.276 gallons. Instead of paying $2.99 as I would have had to do, I purchased it at $2.59/gallon so I saved a net $0.40/gallon for a grand total of $1.71. An unimpressive number especially considering the $6.68 it cost me to buy the 2 gas tanks.

Oh well, maybe next hurricane.
