No, not the moment where I
as I put my debit card back into my wallet.

I mean the one where I fill up the tank, get in the car and start it, and watch the fuel gauge needle climb up and softly come to a rest just above the"F." For just a moment, I feel like I could go anywhere right then.

I've been driving for almost 6 years, and I get that feeling every single time I fill my tank. A full tank of gas in any mechanically sound vehicle is justa beautiful thing.

Reminds me of 2 Thanksgivings back. Swear on everything. We (me, sis, her man, my boy) were at the crib the day b4 Thanksgiving. Up late juss kickin it. Thatnight, my sister's car got broken into, they stole her in-dash.
We stayedup all night lookin for anybody suspicious around the neighborhood. That night, the ppl had gotten in like 10 other cars. Including my homie's that waswith me. He lived up the street. Anyway, fast forward. We went to the gas station at like 5 in the morning. Premium gas wuz 24 cents a gallon. I thought"No way. It says that but it can't be true."The other two grades were reg price. But premium wuz low for some reason. I have a caddy, so i had nochoice BUT to get premium. So I did, and I filled up my tank wit like 2 dollars n some change. I gave the ppl inside 5 bucks for gas (i wuz broke at the time
) and just left my change. I didn't wanna make it hot for ppl. Weheaded back up there about 2 hours ;ater, and it was fixed. Needless to say, somebody got fired that day.

i always wondered if i was the only one who felt this way

that appreciation feeling goes toward unappreciated when constantly looking when to fill up
