Today

Since I have been biking back and forth to school for the last month, the foci has hardily been driven (just over 200 miles in a month). So today it being my off day from school I have decided to take it out for a spin. Decided to drive into Missouri just to sharpen up my skills. And low and behold when I was there got gas for the wonderful price of 2.29/gal, while in my area Arkansas it is 2.48/gal.
Needless to say I may not have saved anything by driving it there and back just for the fuel, but it was nice knowing that I got it that cheap.

Haha, it must be nice to bike back and forth to school. I mean I could, but it's about 15 miles round trip. Plus, it's getting that time of year here when I don't want to ride my bike.

Eh, not really. He's up in Houghton, way up in the U.P. The reason gas is so high there is because it has to be transported way farther than other places.
