True story - I filled up my tank on Sunday and my total was $66.01! And I don't even drive an SUV! I live in Los Angeles where the public transportation system is not nearly as sophisticated as other urban meccas (I blame it on MTV Cribs - everyone's always trying to show off their cars!), so trading in my debit card for a bus pass is a last resort. But shelling out all that dough for gas got me thinking about the far more glamorous things I could have purchased instead.
