Gas is killing me =[

I hate being stuck at home,I want to go out and do things like go to the lake take the kids to the mountains and go sledding. I put $11 in the other day and got only 3 gallons of gas. If it goes up anymore I won't be able to drive anywhere. Anyone feeling my pain too. I might invest in a moped or scooter! My kids said I need to learn to skateboard hahaha fat chance.

  • geo metro older cars but get incredible gas mileage, hard to find 4 sale, but are small, 4 seater cars, perhaps not up to safety standard, but maybe drivin around town wouldnt be so bad for a inexpensive car. or an older model toyota corolla. i pretty much do everything in 1 or 2 days per week shopping on my end. good luck!

  • Gas is $4.17 here... It costs $90.00 to fill-up. I'm stuck at home to say the very least.

  • Same here!! I needed a return post mammogram last month! But its too far away to get gas money for and I'm afraid of how bad it will hurt. I'm not healed. But yes. We're jobless here and down on our luck! Gas prices are Hard here! I hate being stranded at home! I was so much already due to my Cancer! Then this Winter here has been the snowiest in 122 years!! We've been snowed in! I can't look anywhere without seeing Snow! These high prices hurt many of us!! Best of luck getting out & away!

  • Ugh- I hate just thinking about it! I rarely get to go anywhere now since I don't want to spend a TON of money just for gas! So all week long, all I do is drop off and pick up the girls from school. That's it. My neighbors probably think I'm a hermit or something! lol
