    Nice idea. But unless it tells you how long the line is, you may be in for a surprise when everyone else in town with one of these cool gadgets also shows up there for gas. Bring some reading material. :-)

    Woodland Hills? Who would have thought that gas would be cheaper in Woodland Hill than in Orange County. Since I will be up that way next weekend to visit my mother perhaps I’ll wait to fill up until I get there.
