Regular is up to $2.44 now. Joy of joys, our illustrious new Governor proposed an 8 cent/gal gas tax increase. Trying to not be political here but, he has a (D) after his name. Just saying.......................

On a maybe brighter side of the news, the Rib Mountian Petro Mart (says VP Racing on the sign) might not be closing. They're still open but,,,,,,,,,,all the pumps still say "out of order" on them, so who knows. I was going to ask about it when I was there a couple days ago, when the manager was behind the counter, but then (as I mentioned in an earlier post) figured it's not really any of my business so, I didn't. Only place with race fuel and after going there for over 20 years, it feels comfortable there, if you know what I mean. Really hope it comes back fully.
