A Dark Day in Omaha

After my 8 mile, 5:30 a.m. run with Henryiard, I stopped at QuikTrip with 52 cents which for the last few months was the correct change for a 32 ounce Lemon-Lime Gatorade from their fountain. To my surprise, the 49 cent special is done. A 32 ounce drink now costs 89 cents. The money that I have been saving on gas in the last few weeks will now disappear at the soda fountain.

On the way to work, I stopped at another QuikTrip, just hoping the store manager at the other QuikTrip was having a bad morning, to get a mixture of 85% Diet Coke and 15% Lemonade. The price changed at that QuikTrip as well.

The 49 cent special is now history. A dark day indeed.
