Gas prices again lol

Ok so last time I filled up it was at around $3.31 and I thought that was bad. I filled up yesterday and it was up to $3.45! Gas here has gone from $3.09 to $3.45 in two weeks. How is it where you are? And how is it affecting your life? Traveling less or not affected you yet?

  • Hasn't affected us too much yet. But I'm sure it will as prices for groceries start to go up too.

  • We are discussing a move closer to hub's work. We are only 30 minutes from his job. It would require a school district change. Still discussing it.

  • My dads truck is a diesel and my mom was saying how much it costs to fill up. Hes actually looking at leasing a small car lol simply because of the gas it would be cheaper to lease and fill up then his has to pay now for gas on the truck. I have a mustang, and have to run more then 87 in it so I feel your pain. It was more then $50 to fill up yesterday.
