  • No... I figure we have to have it, so there's no need to get worked up about it when there's nothing I can do about it.

  • I feel the same way. Its costing me over $40+ to fill up my Focus now and I have to drive to work 5 days a week, riding the bus is not a convenient option for me, than we still have to get out and about on the wknds for activities, visiting families, having a life.
    And it seems like the more I look at what to cut out, the less there is to cut out. Everything we have to pay for is a need.

  • Limit where you go and when you do go out look for the lowest prices in gas. Over the summer I heard that gas prices are suppose to spike up past 5.00 per gallon. Its also more expensive around here because I live by the beach. So my SO and I check for the cheapest prices to try and save and travel less.

  • I'm more upset that it will likely not go back down to under $3.00. Sadly those days are over.

  • not freaked out, just limiting my need for its use.

  • Not really, the majority of my gas is paid for by my job. I don't really use much besides that, I'm able to get groceries & whatnot at the end of my workday without using any extra gas.

  • I am not freaked out, but I am thinking of adding a delivery charge at my dry cleaners though.

  • Im not freaked out by them, Im PISSED THE FUCK off by them. All these high prices when America dosnt EVER get one single drop of Oil from Libya. Italy buys 99% of Libyan Oil. NO other country is buying Libyan oil!!! Why are WE paying so damn much? Because OPEC is a bunch of greedy bastards thats why!!
