Well, depending on many factors I am sure....
My internet company, Century Link....I am locked in at one price for life...only thing that can go up are taxes...and the buttons in this little city voted for a damn 1% increase in sales tax....
DirectV also locked into price for life....unless we go for a new package, blah blah blah.....again only taxes increase....see above.
Now the following is an example of people not using their puny brains, not knowing economics, and believing the stuff they are told about buying locally.
Gas is $2.549 per gallon here....now up the street about 13 miles, $2.17 per gallon.
So guess where I go to fill up?
But the people here tell me I am not being helpful to our little city by not buying my gas here!
I said, you would rather stay here and pay that high amount instead of driving to another city and saving 30+ cents per gallon?
So one tells me, look at how much you are spending and wasting driving there and back....geesh.....
Do the gas stations sell same quality of gasoline?
Same gas stations....or convenience stores....lousy competition here in Iowa....hard to find independently owned stations....
What happened is another convenience store chain is moving into this part of Iowa...and grand opening prices started at 2,17...forcing every other convenience store to drop prices....so then they dropped to $2.12 After a week, prices still down at that level.
I forgot how many different blends of gas there are, adding significantly to the price of gas, but I woulda thought by now Iowa would be running all there cars on 100 percent moonshine with so much corn and all.
Iowa has: 10%, 15% and 85% ethanol blends.
85% is the worse one for mileage, but the cheapest.
15% is really the best for mileage and is a bit cheaper than the 10%.
Another day at the gym.....
Was that at a Rudy's?
Son said at a Valero station not far from his house.
So far, that is the lowest price as everyone else is around 2.02 per gallon.
Now that is regular unleaded gas....
Which here in Iowa is around $2.86 a gallon!
Like I said, here in Iowa damn little competition.
If Casey's goes up a nickel?
Then QT, Git n Go, Kum & Go, all jump up the same nickel!
On hearing that her elderly grandfather had just passed away, Jenny went straight round to visit her grandmother.
When she asked how her grandpa had died, her granny explained, "He had a heart attack during sex on Sunday morning." Horrified, Jenny suggested that having sex at the age of 94 was surely asking for trouble.
"Oh no," her granny replied, "we had sex every Sunday morning, in time with the church bells."
She paused, and wiped away a tear.
"If it wasn't for that dang ringy-ding-ding ice cream truck going past just as the church bells were ringing, he'd still be alive."
Sorry, but the above does not work.
The post office can and does legally toss out prepaid envelopes that are stuffed or too heavy.
So you can't get carried away in filling one, plus nope, you can not put such an envelope on a brick.
The recipient of a prepaid envelope pays the same amount.....
But nice try there....
Also you might be charged with “abuse of the mails.”
