        It's interesting that they're setting this during the Clone Wars but doing it in a completely different style than the show. I kind of wonder if this might be a test for further specials, as we already know that the Lego Star Wars combo is a popular one.

      It was only $.06 cheaper down than street than at mile-away Costco, so I settled for $2.51 a gallon.
