    Californians Run Out of Gas On Purpose to Get Refueled

    A strange effect of rising gas prices: some drivers in California plan to run out of gas on the freeway, so roadway assistance give them gas to get out of the way. This reminds me of people that avoid medical treatment until they go to the ICU - bill on the taxpayers. :(

    Hi Chuck:

    ___Just plain nuts … Waiting by the side of the road for an assistance truck or slowing down as well as driving smartly while never running out of gas in the first place? Most of our citizenry’s priorities are truly misplaced by the sounds of it :( Thank you for the link!

    ___Good Luck
