I just filled up! I paid $3.99. Although, I did pass one station that was 3.89, I should have stopped there for gas!

When I was young, I always said I wanted to be someone...I guess I should have been more specific!

$4.05/gallon here. I haven't taken to my bike yet, but I have definitely cut way back on driving.

When I filled up a few days ago it was $3.87 a gallon but tonight on the news it said NH has finally hit $4 a gallon and one place in my town is actually charging $4.25. I have a feeling that the prices will never really go back down again either.

On the Today show a week or so ago, they had the president of Exxon on because that company made 14 billion dollars in profits. When asked how he could justify that when people were having to make choices between food and gas, he tried to say they had costs, overhead and accountability to their share holders. Excuse me??? With all that they still had BILLION dollar profits. He talked in circles. Sorry to be so uppity about this but it is so frustrating!!!

Yeah like it would have killed them to only have 12 BILLION in profits!

Right now it take $100 to fill my van if I am running on fumes. Gas was $3.99 yesterday will I filled up. Thankfully the awards banquet that I went to today my car poolers gave me $30 for gas.
