Are you over the shock of gasoline prices?

I know, dumb question. I seriously have made an attempt of NOT eye-balling the signs at gas stations around Bismarck/Mandan. Simply for the painful reason that I have surrendered to the notion that "a miracle any time soon" will not lower the prices below two bucks a gallon. I remember those days like it was yesterday. I recently posted a question through social media about much it costs for people to fill up their tanks, and the answers were staggering. The obvious nowadays is to really plan on cutting back on any extra time spent driving, instead of taking a road trip out of town, you now have to see if your budget will allow it. We are all going through it, heck even gas station owners.

I never gave much thought if gas station owners cared

Well, there is one in Minnesota that does. According to foxnews.com "Chuck Graff, the owner told the outlet he wanted customers to know they were not the only ones feeling the "pain at the pump" as the national average gas price recently topped $5 per gallon for the first time" There is even a sign posted outside his business telling everyone "We hate our gas prices too" foxnews.com reported. Chuck is definitely trying to make everyone aware that he can relate.

Once again it's one of those "Only time will tell" deals

My mom used to tell me "Try not and worry about things you can't control"  - pretty good advice wouldn't you say?


LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
