This is the second 'thread' in less than a week where I have seen a 'moderator' issue a warning to the participants over content. Have these 'threads' always been mointored this way? I've been a member for four years and this is the first time I have ever noticed it. I looked in the FAQ today for guidelines concerning this matter but was unable to find what I was looking for. I have to admit in four years I have gained very good knowledge here on many subjects and in doing so there were a number of different opinions given in many different ways. And I thought the process was very healthy. Now I get the feeling like 'big brother' is looking over everyone's shoulder and if you slightly lean towards what they refer to as a 'political' view then you are issued a warning. Maybe it has always been this way and I just never came across a situation until this week. I'm sure I will 'quickly' be straightened out here :-)

A show about Canadians driving south to Florida for March Break (school holiday) said that Georgia has the highest gas prices in all of the US.

Is that true?

(sorry for the off-topic stroll here, curiosity got to me!)

Hi, I just checked the gas map and all I can see [in California] is RED.

Judging by the map from Newroswell, CA looks like all their gasoline is on FIRE!

Today at the local Unocal 76.

Hi, this morning it was time to refill the gas tank on my Lincoln with Premium fuel. The pump clicked off at around $98.00 and I continued filling until it was full and at the limit set by the station.

I am always amazed at the disparity in prices from one location to another. However today I was really baffled because I paid 3.73 for diesel at an Excon but yet every other station I saw that had diesel was between 3.89 and 4.15. One was just a block away. simply amazing
