The $30 barrier

I think last night was the first time filling my car with gas ever topped $30.

Getting a car in January that needs premium unleaded, instead of plain-ol' reg'lar unleaded, boosted my bill at the pump a bit, but that in combination with slowly climbing gas prices, and an unusually empty tank, took me up to $30.32 with yesterday's fill-up.

I guess it's also the first time in a while I've put over 17 gallons in the tank at once. I don't have one of those monster cars with 25 gallon tanks, and it's rare I let the car get so empty that I need more than 15 or so gallons at a pop.
