Does anybody else wish they would make the gas companies list their 
prices WITHOUT the "(point)9"??  I once read that people tend to ignore 
the right side of a price; which is why a LOT of stuff on TV is quoted 
as "$19.99 - people see the "19" and don't acknowledge  the price as 
$20, they see it as $19...  Anyway, whenever I look at a gas price, I 
just automatically add .01 to what's shown...  anybody else bothered by 
the (semi)false advertising of gas stations??
