Eating out and the Price of Gas

I saw two things today that I've never seen before.... ever.
 
At the gas station across the street for Union Station in Los Angeles the price of a gallon of regular gas was $5.49.  Guess I was lucky when I filled the tank at $4.65. 
 
This price was about 75¢ a gallon above all other stations in the city.  Guess that's why the NBC news van was there.
 
The other thing I saw was this:
 

 
No lines and hardly any people at Phillipe's.
 
I've been going to Phillipe's for probably 40+ years and never, ever has there been no one in line. 
 
There were a few people eating, but the lines!  There weren't any.
 
I know that the gas price across the nation isn't as bad as in Los Angeles, but are you seeing its affect on restaurants in your area?
