A tank of gas is practically free for you, why bother?

In Italy last month I saw prices in the $8-9 range. Here it's a more normal 7-ish.

I paid $5.35 for premium in Chicago last week. About a month ago it was around 4.25 there. That's starting to creep up. But it does depend where you are. It's ~$4 in Indiana.

Now we have the nationalties of the prime suspects for stealing gas. Gas would be cheaper if you spent more on defense, you know.
