Today’s Houston Chronicle reported (sorry no link) that two gas stations in Dallas were giving away $40 in free gas to the first 200 cars at each location. The article claimed that some people waited in line for 12 hours! That works out to $3.33 per hour. Not only that, at $3.80 per gallon, it only represents 10.5 gallons of gas.
Like I said last week, gas prices have people not thinking clearly. Either that or they are really hurting.
