This morning I stopped at a gas station to fill up my tank and found that the gas pump would not allow me to buy the grade of gas that I wanted. I was forced to pump gas that was 10 cents more expensive.
I have a mild fixation on gas prices, so my first reaction was to reset the pump and try my transaction again. No go — only the more expensive gas was available.
Fine, I said to myself, I’ll just buy a few gallons here, and fill up the rest of my tank later, at a station that will allow me to buy cheaper gas.
