On my recent trip back an interesting comparison to $$ of a cup of coffee at now trending, McDonalds at gas stations. I paid $1.85 a gallon of gas and $1 for coffee in Tenn (Kingsport). As I drove most of the way across Tenn, thru Ky, a little of Ill, and across Mo I noticed the price of their coffee seemed to go along with Gas Prices. As the gas went up and down so did the coffee prices. I paid from $1 to $1.38 and I noticed the price of gas ran from $1.85 to $2.37.
