Soon as you press the pump to fuel, take note, that gas doesn't come out of the nozzel, until it registers 3, 4 or 5 cents...
You sure about that, Lee? Or is that just an opinion?
Aw, come on, it's only a few pennies here and there after all. You should lighten up and let those poor oil companies make a decent profit. Ain't no big deal!
(Sorry, Lee, I just couldn't resist the urge to make a point. Trust me, I take your feeling about being cheated very seriously. You should know, however, that there's a very logical explanation for those 3, 4, or 5 cents ringing up before the gas starts to dispense. With today's prices, those pennies just about cover the cost of the fumes being pushed through the hose by the gasoline. You didn't think those gas fumes were going to be free, did you? )
