My inner monologue: "Aw, dad's worried about the gas prices. Maybe he's 'going green,' or just trying to help me save a few dollars because the prices are still up."

Me: "Dad, I'm sure we'll have to get gas again sometime during the weekend. Mom can charge it then."

Dad: "Ok. You didn't fill up your tank all the way did you?"
