Expensive gas means cheap pancakes through July

Sometimes it's hard to know where to start. I suppose I'll just dive right in.

Through the end of July, if you happen to be eating at a Village Inn or Bakers Square restaurant (they're both owned by VICORP Restaurants, Inc.) and like pancakes, try to find a gas receipt in your pocket/purse. For the next month or so, these two restaurants will serve you all the pancakes you can eat for the cost of a gallon of gas. When you order, you'll also get a list of ways to use less gas, courtesy of GasBuddy. Those tips are nothing you haven't heard a million times, but if you need them again, they're after the jump.

I wonder how far I can go on a gallon of syrup...
