Sticker shock

Today being a beautiful Sunday, and the car dealers in the Chicago area being closed, provided the perfect opportunity to visit a couple of car dealerships to walk around unimpeded. I was at the local Toyota dealership and was looking at a beautiful bright red Tundra pickup. The M.S.R.P. was $44,000. (Full disclosure: this was just for fun. That price is way out of my league!) I started to read about all of the options it contained. One of the options, by the way, was leather seats which seems odd for a pickup. Anyway, the last item caught my attention: the vehicle is delivered with a full tank of gas!

That explains it.
