No, that's not a typo. $3.099 a gallon ... for the cheap gas.

Even the locals have to pay tourist prices here, and nowhere more so than in Gorda, a cute roadside stop where the definition of "full service" is a guy who'll grudgingly wash your front window if asked, then ask you to move along before you've had a chance to wash the back window yourself.

His attitude was very uncharacteristic for the area, but the prices aren't, so be sure to fill up in Carmel, where it's at least as cute, and a buck cheaper.
