Stop it, Gas Man

Can we finally dispense with the charade regarding gas prices? Notice how every sign shows an additional number after the price, denoting tenths of cents. Anyone remember a time when that wasn’t a 9? Damn, I’m old enough not only to remember when that column contained other numbers, but also when the signs didn’t have the capacity to accommodate a third digit in the price.

Look, your price is 2.59 per gallon, not 2.58 9/10. You’re not fooling anyone. Cut it out. Now.
