    My car uses 91 octane and gas prices are pretty close to $5 per gallon in my area. Time for me to look for a telecommuting job.

    The era of cheap gasoline has long since past. I hate to say it, but you'll just have to learn to live with it. Just think, my grandfather used to tell me about how he'd fill up his older brother's car at a country store for just ~$3 for a full tank back in the 1930's (sigh) icon_cry.gif

    In Melbourne, Australia - $6/gal has been about par for the course for the last few months.

    Probably hasn't been $4.19/gal for the better part of 5 years!

    When I started driving, which was only ten years ago, gas was about 1.50 per gallon.....and I remember then I thought that was "SO EXPENSIVE". Had I known what gas was going to cost now back then, I would have taken advantage of the price and driven cross country several times. We need an alternative fuel source, or we just finally need to tap our own oil reserves and lift our middle fingers to the middle east.

    More drilling on our soil = more jobs
    have another refinery or two = more jobs
    Using oil from our own reserves = lower cost of gas

    We'd create jobs while lowering the cost of gas, which might help stimulate the economy because people would have more money to spend.

    Maybe I am wrong?

    More people walking or riding bicycles = USA no longer being one of the world's "heaviest" countries, which = priceless. icon_cool.gif

    Agreed....what future? The US needs to become more self-reliant and gain strength and independence. Isn't that how this great country of ours got its start?

    It totally sucks...yet it amazes me how many friends piss and moan about the price of gas (I am NOT saying this is you Sporty...this is a general statement) yet will DRIVE 4 or 5 blocks to the store/bank/gym on a sunny day icon_confused.gificon_eek.gif My driving habits changed when i lived in the big city....where driving is often more of a hassle than walking or using public transport. By using my feet to get from A to B or public transportation (when it is viable) I have cut the $$$ pain of filling my Honda to a 1x a month event. I know this is not an option for everyone...but making small adjustments in my habits and full taking advantage of my central dwelling location eases the pain of the raw doggin' we are all getting at your local gas station.
