neocssck: $4.14 in CA today


Yep in Norcal too. Been driving a lot less. Filled up in Reno, last week, $3.81. Why the difference 250 miles away from the local refineries?

EZ: God gas make car go fast.

Godspeed!

Yes, I know faith is a charisma not granted to all.

But why the god didn't gift more people with the power of thought, has got me wondering what she might've been thinking about.

It can't be any different than Jesus endorsed bottled water.

RocketRod: Can I buy 2.018 gallons so my total bill is $6.66?

Just get 7 separate installments of the 2.018 gallons, so you can maximise the satanic power while topping off.

The Grim Creeper: Freak Flag Fly: IAmTheLaw: No Hero tag?

It's amazing that people are doing something nice and they get ridiculed for it.

I dunno. I can think of a lot of special interest organizations and companies and that give discounts to the public, and I don't really consider it Heroic.

This church group is giving out probably $5 to $15 to every person and is asking for nothing other than to maybe consider what good people they are and go to church. That's beautiful, is what that is, but we have no beautiful tag. Hero can suffice.


Wait... Are you suggesting that Fark create a "Beautiful" tag?

A church did this at a gas station near my work last Friday. Regardless of your beliefs, a stranger giving you $10 worth of gas is a blessing. I know I'm grateful.

Because that would make sense... Love how OPEC knows they can set whatever price they want, and still sell gas. So their home countries get dirt cheap gas, and all us infidels have to pay out the ass.

It's just like in the Bible where Jesus fuels the masses.
 
2008-05-28 11:30:16 PM
will they be passing the gas in the pews?

barwidow: Wonders if so many gas stations can afford to do this, why are prices so high

The stations aren't doing this. Either the radio station is paying the difference, or the station is getting advertising in exchange. Possibly both. You thought the station was eating the difference?

walnuts55: There is a POS Church called the "GUTS CHURCH" in Tulsa right on a 8 lane highway they just put a giant billboard that has a little boy on it and he says , "Dad I'll get the gas" BRING a kid to church and get $5 bucks for gas.

No god just con men wanting your money.


I've seen that sign many times. Back when I delivered for Domino's, we once got an order for 100 or 120 pies (can't remember exactly). Guess how much of a tip the 3 of us drivers got to split on that run?

/Go ahead, guess.

Bed, Bath, and Beyond does the same thing. God bless you for seeing beauty and heroism in places that I'm unable to discern.

I say we give Florida free gasoline. About a thousand gallons per acre should do it. We could use low-flying C-5 airplanes fitted out as tankers, and distribute "gasoline from God" over population centers.

From one end of town to the other, then across again in a big 'X'.

FREE GAS!!!!

$5.09 for Diesel in Seatac today

/That gas station just past exit 152 may well be the most expensive in WA.

50 cents cheaper than normal? meh. Give it away for free!

I'd think that God could get the price down to at least $2.00/gallon.

I would agree, but the largest oil producers are not too accepting of that Jesus Christ guy.


If you are talking about the Middle East, they are very accepting of Jesus. They see him as a prophet the same as Mohammed, just not the son of God.

/The more you know
 
2008-05-29 12:35:28 AM
Should be $3.16.
 
2008-05-29 12:42:15 AM
Is this like a holy water deal with a priest splashing your face with gasoline?
 
2008-05-29 12:51:35 AM
Kick ass, this is 5 miles from my house. Filling up Saturday, I suppose!
 
2008-05-29 12:58:23 AM
The time is from 10AM-12PM.

cubsfan07: Silly rabbits, don't they know there is no god?

Whether there is one or not, the fact that it fills people like yourself with such angst is more than enough reason to go to church.
 
2008-05-29 02:07:42 AM
I hate the way the church tries to bribe members to join. I guess saving your ass from sin isn't enough anymore.

I wonder if the new members will still remain members once the bribe is used up?
 
2008-05-29 02:33:32 AM
$3.30? Jesus, even Dodge is offering gas for $2.99.

/Although, like this deal, it's also a bit of a scam

1.) I expect you're the only person who sensed any "angst" in the post you replied to.

2.) I'm pretty sure that schadenfreude isn't really the motivation God wants you to have to go to church.

Yeah, they're helping people that are comparatively well-off by allowing them to purchase what is arguably a luxury at a somewhat reduced price. Praise be!

It would warm my cockles a lot more to see them send the money to Burma, or to give kids in Africa clean water. Whatever they say, they're doing it to enlist new drones.

i'd think he'd give it away free ... like jesus with the fishes and loaves of bread ... but nooooooooooooooooo ...

Are you saying it's a trap?

It's religion's equivalent of a "loss leader," I suppose.
