Oil hits $100 per barrel, I Pump First Tank Of E85 Into My Daily Commuter Car

I bought a 2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo last week.  I particularly wanted this car for several reasons:
American Car Company, Sporty Two-Door, Sunroof, V6 Flex-Fuel engine, XM-Radio, On-Star, MP3/Auxillary Interface AND Remote Keyless start/entry.

Additional niceties are:
Auto-on/off Headlights, smoothest 4-speed automatic available, wide/low-profile tires, 4-wheel disc brakes, awesome GM on-broard computer system, Satellite Hands-Free Telephone (integrated w/stereo), Steering-wheel controls for stereo and cruise, Auto-Locking, remote trunk release

As I pulled into a gas station yesterday to fill up with my first tank of E85 Ethanol fuel, the radio station broke a news story announcing "Oil has traded at $100/barrel for the first time!".  I smiled as I filled my tank with E85 at $0.25 less per gallon than the same station’s gasoline, and I live in one of the most expensive E85 areas!
Thanks GM!
