    One guy had a hatch in the bottom of his van and a pump and storage tank inside.
    Who knows how many people just drive off in their cars after filling up. People are getting desperate.
    I have been hearing about these incidents for a long time, now. I remember back in '01 when the gas prices plummeted and I was paying $0.89 per gallon in Bakersfield, CA (gas is always a little cheaper there because there are refineries right there and there is almost zero cost to get the product to the gas stations) and there were still stories like this going on.
    My wife treats me like an ATM machine. She pushes my buttons until I give her money.

    Not any more!

    The local guys are bending us over just like the Saudis. It doesn't matter that we have local refineries and the fact that we're the third largest oil-producing area in the nation. We're paying through the nose, too.

    Yesterday, in Baker, CA (midpoint between LA and Vegas), I saw $5 gas for the first time.

    I considered $4.19 in Vegas a bargain.
    Tommy, close your eyes.
