The cost of gas

It's no secret, that while gas prices are lower then what they were a few months ago (they are at $3.33 here) they are still high. With the economy in the shitter, I'm still in awe that gas companies can cry poverty yet still post trillions of dollars in gains on their quarterly reports.

However, I was kind of taken back when we pulled up to a gas pump in MA on our date night and saw this:

Yes, that's a TV. On top of the gas pump. Here's a closer shot:

It was tuned into to "GS (gas station)" channel and what was currently on was something from ESPN.

Seriously. WTF? Have you ever seen anything so ridiculous?

And dude, why is gas 20 cents cheaper 30 miles from my house? What's MA got that we don't have?
