Gas and hot air
« on: August 16, 2006, 07:31:34 AM »
I just filled up my tank and it set me back an eyepopping $52. The government's policies continue to fail me. I wonder how rich you have to be to benefit from George Bush's priorites?

Gas in Cherry Hill, NJ went for $3.29 a gallon this morning. I do take some solace that here in the Garden State we pay self-service prices for full-service treatment. So at least I don't actually have to pump it myself.

I can't wait 'til my foot heels and I can just take my bike wherever I need to go. Until then, I continue to drive like an old lady to stretch my gas doller. I get about 23 miles to the gallon which is not great, but better than average. What's your miles-per-gallon ratio??

Who knows, maybe there will be a silver lining to all this. If gas (and energy) prices continue on their meteoric rise, folks will have to adopt more sustainable consumption patterns. And that would be a good thing.

How are you managing with skyrocketing energy gas and home energy prices?  will it affect your voting habits on election day in November?

I just grin and pump it!   ;D

It costs me around $55 for a fill up these days.  I'm a lead-foot so I get shitty milage (22MPG)

We have a sizeable Amish Population here,  Now I know why thou art smiling all the time....especially when they peddle past the Gas stations...
The more I learn about the Amish, the more I like ( although I doubt that they accept Homo's) I'd like to get one of those hats, I wonder where you get something like that, I seriously doubt theres a website.

WOW judging from the title I totally thought this was going to be about LWOOD!!!

If possible buy a car that runs on LPG. I bought one two months ago and I'm astonished everytime I go to fill up on gas 0,48 a litre, and the mileage I get is 15km/ltr. Mind you you still need to tank gasoline every couple of months or so because the car starts on gasoline and wil automatically switch over to LPG when the engine temp. reaches 65C. For example if I drive on gasoline (1,55 a litr) only the mileage is 17km/ltr.

Whenever possible, I ride my motorcycle, even in the winter. I average between 70 - 74 mpg, add to this the fact that insurance is $135 a year, and they are the ultimate cheap transport. $13.00 fills the tank. My '88 Ford F-250 pickup is a bit worse, 11-13mpg around town, 17 on the highway, and the worst is the '63 Caddy Sedan de'Ville, about 10mpg regardless of how and where it is being driven. If I fill both tanks on the truck I'm looking at the death of $150.00, $80.00 for the Caddy....
The only thing I can do straight is shoot..
