  • I hate the gas folks with severe passion. They have no real reason to raise prices except that they THINK something bad is going to happen in the future. it's a load of crap & a way for them to pocket billions! I wish i had an electric car sometimes, even if that sucker goes no higher than 60...lol...

  • I know that we won't be able to go ANYWHERE that is not an absolute necessity. We needed to buy a mini van but now I guess we will have to buy a smaller more economical car to drive, that is if we can afford to replace our old car now. Sucks, Big-time.

  • Blame the Oil futures traders, is what ABC world news said the other day. Its not even OPEC's fault this time. The wall street morons who speculate on the future of oil are the ones driving up the cost, and the gasoline Makers are reaping hundreds of billions in profit every quarter. The only way to counter this is to DRIVE LESS!!

  • No Bikes for us. I live in a rural area. I have to take a busy hwy to take the kids to school or go to the store. We did have a dollar general built less then a mile from my house so I go there alot for small things I can buy there. Everything else I have to drive 5-10 miles for.

    Here gas is fluctuating by 10 cents up and down but has not gone over $3.79 a gallon, which is still terrible. I wish the speculators would stop speculating lol. Thats what is driving up prices.

  • It's a pain in the butt. I have some not very nice thoughts every time I'm at the gas pump. And I drive a Ford Fiesta! I can't imagine what those of you who drive SUV's and minivans are thinking!
