Why is seeing how far you can drive with the gas light on so exhilarating?

I’ve yet to drive to Russellville without the stress of wondering if I’m going to have to call someone to bring me gas. Usually when you start a road trip, you fill up on gas before you leave, but everyone in Arkansas knows that between Fayetteville and Little Rock, Fayetteville has the most expensive gas and Russellville has the cheapest. So, every trip home is a game. How far can I go with the gas in my tank?

One day I’m going to pull into Russellville just as the gas light goes on, and that will be a perfect day.
