cheap gas.....

i was on the corner of Aldine Mail Rt and JFK visitng some friends, and i passed by a Shell gas station.......i had to do a double take cause i saw 2.85 for Shell VPower (super unleaded)......so since i was close to empty, i filled up. I thought that gas prices had dropped, but when i got back into clear lake, they were 3.13 for VPower.........are the people there that poor that they get .28 off per gallon??? wtf

sad how we think this is "cheap" gas prices. Thank school started and all the buses are back in action to lower these outrageous prices.
