Memos to Morons - part four

TO: Gas Station Owners

RE: Gas pricing

You probably think I'm going to rant about gas prices, right? No, it's gas PRICING that has me irked. The cheapest gas around is $4.30...AND 9/10. What the @#$%? Why not just make it $4.31 and be done with it? It's not like I can pump a gallon into my tank, hand over $4.31 and get 1/10 of a penny back. Once upon a time that 1/10 cent on ten gallons might have meant a piece or two of penny candy, but those days are long gone.

Yeah, I know the concept of .99--how items priced at $1.99, $2.99, $3.99 psychologically appear to be a much better deal than those priced at $2.00, $3.00 and $4.00. But given the prices of gas these days, do you really think you're fooling me into thinking I'm getting a bargain?

Enough with the bull$@#%! Just round it up to the nearest penny already....
