What's a Gallon of Gas?

What is a Gallon of Gas?  We don't even get a gallon of gas at the pumps we get 9/10 of a gallon here in Van Buren, Arkansas. 

I heard that they are going to reduce the amount of milk.  We won't get a full gallon it will be 3/4 of a gallon.  I am sure the price will stay the same.  They have already done this with coffee!

There is 13 in a baker's dozen.  Do you think that there once was 13 eggs in a dozenWhen the price went up they just reduced the amount to 12?

It makes you think doesn't it.

I have noticed the same thing with OJ, take a close look, What was once 1/2 gallons are now about 85% of the 1/2... and they call it a convient size...  Same thing with the 2 liter soda bottles... make them smaller so they are some how more convient???  Marketing is a wonderful thing

Debbie,I think,although I am not totally sure...but that 9/10 at the end is part of the price(not 9/10 of a gallon)..if it says $3.73 9/10...it means you are getting 1/10 of a cent discount on the price..which would really be $3.74 gallon

I believe I read that someplace
