Every time I fill the tank here in LA, I get so shocked!
$40! How can that be??
I look at the numbers displayed on the pump and I'm sure it's not right. I try to get the pump going again. I'm sure it cut off by mistake. This leads to me topping it off, which I'm not supposed to do. But it's the shock that makes me do it.
Whenever I filled the tank in Portugal, it always came to $100. And that was using diesel, which is the cheapest way to go there.
So, yea, I'm shocked at the pump. It's nice to have pleasant shocks from time to time. But I'm not going to let this "cheaper" fuel lull me into thinking I don't have to be careful about how much I drive. It's not just about my money spent, is it? The state of the environment is a whole different shock.
