...I had to stop for gas. I don't drive a lot (my 2002 Passat has only 52,300 miles on it) and I get fairly good mileage, so it had been a while since I filled up. So it was the first time I paid over $4 a gallon. I know people in California have been paying this much for some time, but hey, this is Houston!
I use premium, because that's what I'm supposed to do.
Like I said, I get fairly good mileage, 20 in the city and up to 28 on the highway, and I have a fairly small tank, but even so, it was kind of a shock to spend over $50 to fill up.
And yes, I am so O.C. that I have to "top it off" up to the next dollar...not hard to do at $4.12 a gallon!
