can someone explain this to me....why is it that gas is always priced with 9/10 of a cent at the end of it? what the hell is that all about? Is it some extra gouging going on? I've always wanted to know.

The extra nine-tenths of a penny pays for the extra little bit of gas that dribbles out of the nozzle and onto your car when you're done pumping. Maybe Judy Baar will try to get that money back for us ...
