Pat and I went to Kroger today to fill up our gas tanks (they give a nice discount if you buy groceries from them - $3.53 a gallon).
There was a lady who was just finishing pumping her gas when I pulled up. She pumped $2.02 worth of gas, paid at the counter and then left.
It was just over a half of a gallon of gas.
I've never seen anyone pump such a short amount of fuel... $5 or $10, but not $2.02. I thought that it must be sad to only have $2 to put gas in your car and how far that little bit would take her.
It also made me realize how lucky we are to have enough money to provide for ourselves, Savannah and this new baby on the way.
