I filled up last night in Geneva, Ohio for $3.49/gallon. On Wednesday it was $3.45.

My tank holds about 21 Gallons. I fill up 3 times per week.

If you do the math, the answer comes up the same however you figure it: I am broke!!!

Add to that my propane tank which holds 500 gallons. Of course they only fill it to 400 gallons. Evenso, getting that Amerigas bill is always work a few shudders.

How much driving do you do every day? I would die if I had to fill up three times a week. I can usually get by on once every two weeks.

I feel your pain. We are currently in the process of moving to the area our new jobs are located, but haven't fully accomplished all that needs to be done and are commuting 300 miles a day (yes, you read that right). Our tank holds 20 gallons, gas is at $3.49 per gallon (today, anyway), and we have to fill it every day. All our pay raises are going into the gas tank. Can't wait to move.

wow! i guess i can complain that much...i only work 10 miles from home. on average it usually take me half a tank of gas a week to get to work and back. still the gas prices are affecting us in different ways than just our vehicles. milk, corn, horse and cattle feed, EVERYTHING is going up.

Gas prices here are $3.59 a gal. When you have a Df that drives for a living and paying for the gas out of pocket, it's a real killer, regardless of how you look at it!

I think you need to read more history. There were many depressions besides the Great Depression. The panic of 1837 for example destroyed all business growth for 3 years. As recently as 1980 the prime rate was 20% and Art Buchwald quipped that it was cheaper to borrow money from the mafia than a bank.

We bought a used, low mileage Saturn stick shift that gets 37 mpg average (measured) when gas went up to a whopping $2/gallon. My husband was driving his....gasp....F250 80 miles each way to work.
Best $7K I ever spent. Who knew it would go THIS high?
It's $3.65 here on the Outer Banks, but $3.20 or so in Va Beach, where I go on Saturdays for Schutzhund.

We just paid $3.62 and it cost $52.00 to fill up my Ford Fusion IT'S A 4 CYLINDER for goodness sake. The bad part is that my Aunt has an oil well on her property and is receiving about $.32 more now than great grandpa received in the early 1920's.

CJ, don't know anything about this. Why do they pay her? I know might be a stupid question.

I'm not sure I understand, everything cost more now that it did in 1953 including oil.


You must be younger then I am by far! Like Tom I can remember double diget interest rates for homes, the goverment putting a price freeze on pretty much everthing because of inflation....

And I'm not THAT old, it was post the Great Depression by a few decades...
