If you're like me, and I know I am--you've never really considered what day of the week it is while stopping to fill up with gas. I mean, call me old school, but I generally fill up when it appears that my tank is low and in need of a refuel. Now I find out that's been costing me money.
Last week in this space, I mentioned that Illinois often finds itself at the bottom of "good lists," and at the top of the "bad lists." There aren't a whole lot of things worse than being unemployed (especially when you desperately wish to be employed), and unfortunately, Illinois holds the nation's top spot on the list of highest unemployment rates.
