Gas is expensive it is down to about $2.11. Also, maybe if you eat cheaper meals (maybe a sandwich at home?) you could move into your apartment sooner. (This is what your wife would tell you if you were married, or at least it's what I tell Justin!)

Looka there! I really didn't need to marry you! You get to make out with Justin Hayes, and I still get the lessons I need so badly. Everybody wins!

LOL, just kidding, girl.
