A gas station on Winter St in Waltham, just off the Route 128 exit ramp, is selling full service premium gas for $2.45 a gallon! If you do it yourself you only pay $2.30 a gallon.
Since OPEC hasn't announced any changes in the pricing model until probably June, I would expect that prices will continue to go up.
As Jay Leno keeps saying on the Tonight show: Didn't we win the war in Iraq? Shouldn't the price be $.10 a gallon?

Last night, I successfully put together the desk, despite having any of the original directions. There was one small metal attachment that was missing, but was not an important part of the desk. All the wood made it safely.
Tonight I'll be putting together a file cabinet that I bought at Form n' Teak in Burlington Massachusetts earlier this year. This has the same cherry color as the desk and will fit into the new office perfectly.

Parking wasn't an issue at the Burlington Mall today. I arrived at 1pm and was able to find plenty of parking near the automotive place aross from Macys. However, many shoppers were looking for places closer to the stores and were driving around in circles waiting for that perfect spot. Many seemed determined to get a spot as close to the entrance as possible.

The parking lot was not as crowded this year, as I was able to park much closer to the store. This is probably because I arrived later in the afternoon. The store itself was pretty crowded, and there were long lines at the registers. The only exception was at the Fishing and Hunting store which is separate from the main store.
If you plan to visit the store, here are some of my notes:
