Clue/Question:  With the high price of gas, a full tank can lead to . . .

(Everything was excellently scrambled, today.  But, this might have been a good one to set that 30-second time limit to!  For me, at least, all the clue words kind of jumped off the page.  With the combination of the almost “Password“-like clue/question and the cartoon showing Jeff handing over a stack of bills, it shouldn’t have taken most too long to figure out.  My only question is the road sign.  Does it say:  Bela Hoyt  Beachfront Hotel Just Ahead?  My newspaper has the cartoon at about 3 1/4 inch by 2 inch, and it’s still kind of hard to read.  I know some newspapers print it A LOT smaller, so my bigger concern is for those with the smaller Jumbles, and advancing far-sightedness.  Might be relevant later?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
