Just sad

I noticed this sign at the gas pump today.  It's amazing that 5 years ago, $100 meant something different.  It meant a few gallons of paint and some trim to update a room in your house.  Or it meant several weeks worth of food.  It meant your electric bill or your car payment.  It meant a trip out of town for a day or two.  Today, it means a tank of gas.  

Wow, how lucky I felt as my tank topped off under the $100 max.  Yeah.  Lucky.
