    No - not really. But if you recall, Flying J got in a lot of hot water regarding fuel and accounting - fraud I think they call it.

    Wait - did they raise their employees wages and salaries? Would that explain it?

    I got chewed out by our boss because we paid 30 cents a gallon when we should have only paid 27. That was in 1964 at the Mass 10 Truck Stop in Auburn Massachusetts

    Makes sense. Seems like everything sold there is at least twice the price of what it should be.

    Ok OP, if you can't get a shower, keep towels, soap, water, and a bucket in your truck. A hard hat will work too...
