quote: Personally, I don't have any disposable income because it goes into my gas tank. I know millions of other people are in the same situation. In Best Buy's hey day, it took less than $20 to fill up your car. Hell, when I started college, I could fill my tank for $7. That was $28 a month. Now I'm spending close to $300. That's $3600 a year. Back in the day, at a console launch I would dump over $1,000 on a console, accessories and games. Can't afford to do that now.
