Longest known stuck price. It used be be standard here to ask for $20 of petrol. That is all fine, but if you forget and do that now that petrol is expensive, you have to refill about a day later. Turns out equating an amount of petrol by a variable that continually changes (ie goes up) isn't such a good idea.
