Oil vey!

The hardest part of dealing with today's ridiculous gas prices is the unprecedented difficulty in topping off gas tanks to the nearest dollar. The quickest pump of gas can mean three cents when petrol's $3.31 a gallon, so the hands of consumers like me appear to be tapping out Morse Code in an attempt to get that price tag to exactly $33.00.

To continue with the "Price Is Right" theme, the winner is the closest to the rounded off price without going over. Except you're coughing up your winnings and the gas station attendants don't quite measure up to Barker's Beauties.
