News from the Nutmeg State

My wife and son and I spent most of Sunday in Hartford, Conn.

We had never been to Hartford before, but the directions we got from Mapquest.com were perfect, and we had no trouble getting there and back.

Just one thing Mapquest neglected to tell us: Don't be an idiot and fill up your gas tank in Kingston for $2.21 a gallon before leaving town; wait until you get to Hartford and pay about $1.95!

Next time we'll know better.

Jennifer:
I used to live in Buffalo, and I'm disgusted by what I hear about gas prices out there. There's just no excuse for it.
We're down to about $2.18 in the Hudson Valley now, but that's still 30 cents above the national average.
