Fox 29 Suggests Gas Prices in Tiny Towns

Fox 29 didn't disappoint this morning. As part of their usual repertoire of using minifacts to fill the two-hour morning news segment, they provided loyal readers with some cheap gas prices. 


This would be nice and useful if you live north of Palm Beach County. That's unfortunate for those of us residing in the bustling areas south of Martin County. But just in case you don't feel like working this morning, here's how much you would spend per gallon of gas and how much you would waste heading up there.
