I drive one of those cars that needs premium gas I'm waiting for my Prius to come in so that it can be my winter car for really bad snow days when I want my AWD.dgstan said:I heard an interesting comment from a guy at work who just bought an expensive "luxury" sedan that uses premium gas and gets 18 MPG on a good day. He said:
"I can afford the gas."

If there's 3 loaves left on the store shelf, and you need 2 to feed your family, but this guy buys 2 because he can but only needs one, thus the other loaf he bought will probably rot, would you not criticize?
