Damn gas prices

I just filled up my car this morning and it cost me $69 to fill up 16.6 gallons on my 1996 Ford Explorer. The gas was $4.139 a gallon. Sheesh.

On the way home, I saw a car with those ridiculously sized wheels. You know, the 24 inch rims, that makes the car look silly. But then I was thinking, what mileage does he get with those wheels? The wheels are larger than the standard wheel size. Even though they do it for style, maybe they are getting an added benefit without even thinking about it. I wonder how 30 inch rims would look like on my Explorer =)
