Found a Penny at the Gas Station
I rarely fill up my gas tank because I rarely drive. I mean I drive here and there but since I work from home, I don't drive to work every day. I might drive to the post office or the grocery store or whatever a few days a week and it's usually just a few miles round trip.
Even though I don't have to fill up very often (once every 3 weeks is my average), I still like to get a good deal. I'd passed an ARCO gas station on the way to the vet's advertising regular unleaded for $3.15 a gallon. I went back there on my way home. As I was filling up, I spotted a penny on the ground. Yay!
I have two questions for you: Where do you find money? How much is gasoline where you live?
