That's over $4000/year on gas! If gas is $3.50/gallon, and if it takes, say, 5 minutes to pump 10 gallons, then if I did the arithmetic properly you spent over 9.5 hours pumping gas last year. No wonder you need a rest!

You give me way too much credit.

Diesel has been hanging around $4.00 a gallon most of the year and accounts for almost 70% of my bill. Also, many locations have high volume diesel pumps capable of running up the total twice as fast as gas.

Oh, well in THAT case.... then you only spent a little over 4 hours pumping gas last year, you slacker. You simply have no excuse for needing a rest!
