Free Gallon of Gas in California, Just Run Out

Unbelievable. [3] Gasoline is over $3 so motorists in California are taking advantage of a publicly funded patrol service that gives a free gallon of gas to those who run out. For three dollars worth of petrol, people are stranding themselves on the highway, wasting time, inhaling exhaust fumes, for a gallon of gasoline. Forget the part about how this is the most inefficient way to get gasoline because it’s publicly funded (they pay taxes, the taxes pay for a truck, a driver, administrative fees, maintenance on the truck, and then finally the gasoline… certainly that gallon is costing them more than $3), how little do these folks value their time?
