Me, a $1.00 tool, and falling gas prices...

I spent a few hours changing the brakes on Kari's car this morning. Always my favorite thing to do! As I was reflecting with grime up to my elbows, I thought about patriotism and my role in America. I became almost emotional as I did my part to help with the energy crisis and I pulled out a tire gauge. I checked the pressure in my tires and found that one of them was only at 32 psi (it should have been 35). I was motivated into action (as any patriot would be) and I filled that tire up. My car is now balanced and ready for the world of fuel efficiency. OK, Pretty Boy Flavor-of-the-month, now I'm ready to watch the fuel prices drop. That's all it takes, right?

I believe he said you needed a tuneup as well, and changing your breaks does not count!
