Last August I was trying to map a trip to California from Maryland. Not being the greatest on a computer, I kept fooling around and this site popped up. I typed in my trip, added a few variables, and wound up with a great trip. Being a retired truck driver, I was able to shake up a few cob webs and plan a return trip on scenic routes I had run years ago.

Found this site 10 years ago just checking the gas prices. Back then it was consistently under a buck a litre - my how things change. Should get back to posting. Also met some cool ppl from this site. Peace.

I assume by "win" you mean winning the gas card drawing.

Hard to win the drawing if you don't get tickets which "cost" 1,000 points each.
And it's hard to get points if you don't post gas prices at least once in a while.
With 465 points in the 10 days since you started this topic, minus 100 points for joining, and minus 60 points for three message posts, that leaves 305 points for other activities you took part in. As you can't get only 5 points for an activity, meaning you could have posted two gas price posts in those 10 days of membership (i.e., 300 points), that means you've got one gas price post in 10 days.

As I said, it's hard to win if you don't get tickets, and if you doubled your points activities tonight, you'd still be more than one gas price post short of being able to get a ticket to win.
