    You still gettin it in de a$$ like de rest of us...yuh still have to buy gas, which the price has made a huge jump for no apparent reason...doh forget, gas last year this time was $1.39 - $1.45/gal!

    As for the MTA, one set ah crooks, I've been sayin that for the last two years...I'm sure the surplus was under reported as well, there's no reason for them to be cash strapped, it's like a toilet paper company going out of business...makes no sense!
