Or does it seem as if the price of gas rises about a nickel to a dime per day?
Seems like every time I drive past the Kroger gas in Smyrna (which is daily on my way to work) that the price of gas has risen yet again. It's a good thing there are a couple of bank branches in the parking lot and close by so those with SUVs and apply for that third or fourth mortgage and afford to fill up the car.
And yet, there are always cars lined up two-deep at the Kroger to purchase gas. As my old friend Russ would say, they must be giving away a free gold-bar with every purchase. (OK, Russ would sometimes use another free service in that particular quote along the lines of what Finn saw Vito doing last year in The Sopranos
, but this is a family blog so I will leave the sordid details to your imgaination...or the comments section).
I wish I could invest in the stock of the Kroger gas station--particularily the one in Smyrna. I mean, I know that if you spend a $100, you get a dime off per gallon, but can this many people be spending $100 on groceries that quickly? Or is it just that promise of three cents off per gallon with your Kroger plus card? (Which alas the purchase of gasoline does not count your $100 total to get a dime off per gallon! Dang nabbit!)
