SUPER BIG MOON, BIG SAVINGS
I drove about 8 miles to find a suitable spot to photograph from, knowing that in Dallas the moon would rise at 8:08pm. Stopped at a RaceTrack gas station off Josie Lane and took this with neon signs of a storage business as a frame. Steadied against post. This is March 19. 2011 and the moon is supposed to be at perigee and 14 percent larger than normal...I should have used MANUAL FOCUS. It was an event, at any rate.

Marge,
Unfortunately, the price of gasoline is still US$3.34/gallon at the cheapest place, which is RaceTrack....

Certainly a good moon shot
$2.20 a litre for petrol/gasoline here in New Zealand. This works out about $8.25 a gallon.
