No, this isn't going to be one of those "Why, back in my day, you could fill up your car for a quarter and have enough money left over to buy a meal" kinda posts. ;-)
Earlier this summer, I mentioned that everything was more expensive in the Pacific Northwest. Food and fuel were more expensive on San Juan Island than on the mainland there. I fueled up the truck yesterday - at our local gas station, we paid less per gallon than anywhere along the route, from Washington State back to Texas.
Today, we went to the grocery store. I kept saying, "Look at that price!" Not in a bad way - everything we bought was about 25% (or more) less than we paid all summer.
"How much? Heck, let's buy two of 'em!"
