Rell watching gas use

Governor Jodi Rell is trying to save money by placing new restrictions on gas use (Courant, by Tracy Gordon Fox):

People buying gas in Connecticut may see something new at the pumps: state troopers filling up their police cruisers.Because of the swelling price of fuel, Gov. M. Jodi Rell has ordered agencies to find ways to save money and cut back on gasoline. For the state police, which has the largest fleet of vehicles, that means troopers will no longer be allowed to fill up their cruisers with department gas while off-duty.

Too bad for Cheshire's taxpayers that the members of the Council majority are not interested in any additional questions on the Town's gas use policy. IMO, there are more questions to be asked... but with the Council's obvious lack of intellectual curiosity (as demonstrated when being told that it is bad form to ask questions "out of the blue")
the writing is on the wall...
