Just paid 3.98 per gallon.  All our cars require premium, it is not just recommended in the manual it says REQUIRED.  Time to get cheaper cars....

I read today that here in the midwest we should expect gas to hit $4.00 this summer because of a pipeline issue.  They said it should average around $3.00 elsewhere.  We were at 3.05 today.

Rodney, its almost worth a trip to go out to your area and fill up!  ;)  Whatever the prices are, up here in the mountains, they just shove the nozzle up your bum..  I do not mind the constant dildo effect, but gosh,  I always prided myself as being versatile!   ;D

David use that new bike to get from home to work!  ;D  What is it 300 miles to work these days?  I am seriously thinking of getting one of those little two wheely things...  Fun in a blizzard I am sure..

Holy hell that would be a sight.  When I was a kid they had a lighter at spencers that had a little tube that you stuck in your butt and supposedly it worked by collecting your "gas".  Also, in China, I think, they collect methane from their pigs to use as fuel for their stoves out in the agricultural areas. 

As for me, I will pay up but the next car we get is not having a turbo or a supercharger which is why I think our cars require premium fuel.  I wish we could buy VW TDI's in CA because they get great gas mileage .... but alas CA has very tough air quality standards.

If your like me, you'd probably get about 30mile per Kaletra in a car with your butt out the window, or be able to fly from New York to London in about 30 minutes flat on your broomstick.

Well I've cut back on my driving... I'm happy I bought a Toyota ECO back in 2000 all my friends laughed but, who's laughing now? When I take my car to be serviced the dealer always has to ask me when I'm trading it in? right? its paid for.. This car will last me until at least another 5 years... then hopefully we can see aliitle more clearly as to what fuels are available in the future? I'm selling my maserati this summer it's just not needed anymore and it has served its purpose... I think last month I spent $78 on both cars for fuel total... and if I really get caught in a pinch I can ride my bike to the office... but, with rising fuel cost get prepared for everything else to go up... 90% of all shipping in this country is done by trucks... get ready for more rate hikes... in all consumer goods...

I paid $3.47 a gallon for regular unleaded yesterday. I am glad I have a car that gets 34 mpg in town & 41 mpg on the highway. If anyone is in the market for a small car with good gas milage, a roomy, flexible interior & is made well I highly recommend the Honda Fit.

I am going to see if a Kaletra will increase my miles per gallon.   One in the gas tank,  4 in me...  Hopefully the jeep will not experience any unpleasant side effects other than an occasional backfire... ;)

It just went up to 3.11 here in Pennsylvania and I have a beat up, gas guzzling V-8 engine. It would more than likely cost me almost 70 bucks to fill. I am going to get a car with a V-6 engine soon, not sure if that will make much of a difference....

I thought I'd post and make all you guys feel better. The average unleaded petrol price in the UK today is:

£3.65 a gallon. There are 1.977 dollars to the pound = $7.19 a gallon. We have periodic fuel protests over here, but most of the population accepts it as a given and drives tiny little European/Jap cars.

its about $0.90 here in Puerto Rico...but thats per LITER not Gallon so i guess that converts to about

$3.49 (0.90p/liter X 3.79 US Gallon) but when your unemployed 50 dollars to fill your tank is a lot lol

I kid you not 3.59 in Indianapolis. I am for real buying a 50cc scooter to ride back and forth to work and do little errands around town on.  I looked at one today that was 599.00 brand new and goes abot 40 top speed but gets 80 miles per gallon. Hell why not. I aint ashamed to ride one. More money for partying
