I just got back last night from a trip down to South Padre Island for a 
friends wedding and down in that area the gas is $1.92 a gallon.  Once I got 
up into San Antonio area it started going back up to over the $2.00 a gallon 
mark.  :(

One of these days I will move out into the country and get a horse and just 
get rid of my car.  It would be cheaper that way I think!  hehe

How many Knights does it take to light a fire?

None!  That's what squires are for!
