Gas Cans Now Twice the Price Thanks to EPA

I went to buy a gas can yesterday and discovered the price was more than double last year's price, due to new regulations by the EPA that made the gas can people have to manufacture a fancy, "no-emission" gas can.

However, there may be a few of the old style cans in stock in various stores.  I suggest if you want a reasonably priced gas can, you should look for the old ones ASAP before they disappear.

Not only more expensive...they don't work worth a crap because the vent that they used to have has been removed to prevent fumes...which means 'glug, glug, glug' and more spillage...seem to me a couple of minutes of gas fumes is preferrable to taking twice as long to fill a tank and spilling twice as much...

I guess I had to 'vent' also-
