Okay, here’s a picture. Take a look at it and then I will interpret it.

Chalie fills up his KIA minivan.

So Charlie takes me with him to fill up the minivan at the local Italian gasseria. This is the result at the pump. It’s impressive in Euros and Liters (E109.00 for 62.79 liters), but what it really means is: 16.59 gallons of gas for $136.25. That’s $8.21 per gallon. Reality check for us all!
