Man, I was excited for the cheap gas, but when I filled up earlier in the week Premium was only about 35 US cents/gallon cheaper than usual ($3.49 instead of $3.85)

Thanks! I’m struggling with health issues that have been plaguing me for six months now, and they really suck the energy out of me. I’m focused more on getting through the work day and taking care of Ravna, and after those things I don’t have much left for Oppo.
