$4.59/Gallon Gas

The Puzzler

TOM: Well, there goes my answer.

RAY: What was your answer?

TOM: That you were in a foreign country.

RAY: But you know I hadn't gone any place -- how can I have been in a foreign country if I hadn't left the country? What I saw on the lift was a car that had numbers on it...

TOM: A racecar.

RAY: Its doors were welded shut, and it had no glass. It was in fact a racecar. And this guy must have been the local gas station where all the racecar drivers -- there must have been a track nearby -- came to get their gas. This gas was 110 octane.

TOM: Really, 110 octane.

RAY: 110 octane. Pretty good, huh?

TOM: That's good.

RAY: Do we have a winner?

TOM: Yeah. The winner is Sean Duffy from Flagstaff, Arizona.
