Me: this is GAS we’re talking about!


H: i mean c’mon this is the biggest thing since like sliced bread and i’ve been like the only one who’s been going on about it for like a day

Me: i live for this kind of stuff

Me: YEAH!!

Me: look, i even used double exclamation points

Me: obviously, this is a big deal

H: but on mace blvd there are 2 gas stations and they’ve been having price wars for the last 3 days as far back as i’ve noticed

H: 2 days ago the valero was 1.90 and the one next to it was 1.89

H: then yesterday they were both 1.85

H: then last night one was 1.89 and the other was 1.69, but this morning one was 1.89 and the other was 1.79

Me: where’s the $1.59 one at?

Me: i’ll be needing it on friday

H: then i drove by again tonight and the valero had dropped it to 1.59

H: and the one next to it was 1.69

H: that’s a 20cent swing in 12 hrs

Me: that’s soo crazy

Me: wow

H: but it seems to generally drop a lot in the evening
