Study Says D.C. Has America’s “Drunkest Singles”

 

The D.C. dating scene is one that is often debated by singles all over the city.  Some say love is easy to find in D.C., while others swear that their future spouse can’t be discovered in the District.

Today, a study released by dating website “How About We” is offering up an intriguing revelation about D.C. singles on their site: That they drink more than singles in any other U.S. city.

Exxon Station In D.C. Charging $5.39 For A Gallon Of Regular Gas

Now here we are in March of 2012 and the Exxon, located at 2708 Virginia Avenue in Northwest, is back in our headlines.

Why?

Because a gallon of regular gas is now $5.39...and that's just absurd.
