Is there a way to pre purchase cheap gas ?
Gas stations tend to be locally owned, so maybe you could work a deal with the proprietor?

PA asked everyone to stay at home.

Our .gov passed rules that non-essential travel is a $1k fine. 100% staying home now. Who knows for how long, I'm really not hating it. :iono: I'm certainly not either...

Who Do You Use For Insurance?

We're using State Farm now for the daily drivers and home. We had Liberty Mutual briefly, but they raised their rates for no reason and became expensive as hell. I use Grundy for the collector vehicle policy. I've been with them since 2013 and they've been great. Only had one claim for a windshield ...

So, with all of these people working from home for at least two months, what are the tax implications for next year? I imagine all of those people are going to be writing that square footage off as a work space.

Are all of these deals in lieu of rebates? No thanks. They ain't desperate enough, then. My wife's lease is going back in three months and I don't know how long this stay at home game will last but chances are that we will all be at work in that time frame. In the mean time I wouldn't commit to ano...

Delaware is basically pulling over anyone with an out of state license plate. Yea...we wouldn't be leaving the state, but anyone with a fancy vehicle and a camper in the middle of nowhere would be branded a target I suspect. Clearly not from around the area...where's there's still no reported cases...

I'm thankful that we haven't been impacted yet, but I'm sure it is coming. I'm expecting either a furlough or a pay cut. They've already furloughed 35% of the contractors until July 5th, but my fate will rest on whether or not they shut the buildings down. Finance has been coming at us looking for ...

I know pay cuts suck, but guys... Be glad that you have jobs still. Many will be completely out of work and will need help from family and friends for at least some time while this plays out.

I got word that my company is furloughing 35% of the contractors in our division until July 5th. Luckily for me and my team, the buildings are remaining open so we are able to continue maintaining the sites.
