    There was a puzzler on Car Talk a few years back on how to tell by looking at the back of a car which side the filler cap is on. Anyone care to hazard a guess?

    I think on the newer cars there is a picture of the gas pump, and an arrow pointing to which side of the car the fuel door is located on. For instance, on my 2008 the picture is of a gas pump with the nozzle on the right, but the arrow is on the left (driver's side). After my vast studies I think the arrow is the key, not which side the nozzle is located on. Sleep well

    My dad and I had this talk last weekend ( he listens to that show ALL the time.. and I love it too). He said that you can tell by looking at the exhaust, if it is on the left you fill up on the right and vice versa. I had asked what side of my new car I fill up on since he had it before me, he told me that. I said, that was a Car Talk thing wasnt it?? lol

    Is that the one you were thinking about?

    Unfortunately you're probably right. I don't believe for a minute that the government doesn't have some of control over gas prices. Especially with the way prices have conveniently been dropping so quickly right before the election.

    $2.74 now. I only put $15 in this morning hoping that it will keep going down.

    That's the downside. It's already dropped since I filled up. That's the way it always goes for me. Now when I need gas again it will probably be back up.
