    Nooooooo! :shock:

    I might not be as angry if they weren't seriously talking about cutting ALL W service from Astoria too.

    and that has made all the difference......yet...

    $1.99. Cheaper than Metrocards for most people actually.

    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.

    ...and that the $2 base fare could be boosted by $1 to $3."
    now that's just WRONG! i don't take the subway on a daily basis (only when i need to go into the city), but if i have to pay $10 just to get to and from the city i might as well drive in and feed a meter.
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    Mario that Exxon station across from you was always much higher then anyone else. I think the scumbag was trying to screw ppl. What amazed me though was people were getting gas from him when they simply could have made a quick U turn and saved a few bucks. Eh people deserve it then.

    As for the Metrocards.....glad I live on Long Island ;)

    More like glad you work on LI. LIRR fares are getting a nice boost also. :)

    No joke, which is why we are driving in.


    Actually Tom, that Exxon shop is very reasonable compared to the guy next door, in terms of service. The day before my wedding, my Buick had an antifreeze issue. Tons of $$. Also, for a flat tire to be replaces, tons of $$ (so they make up for the cheaper gas I suppose)

    So I gas up next door and any repairs are across the street.
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
