Gas is $4.39 and should top $5 by July 4th weekend. I'm taking my bicycle in today to get a tune up.

There are places closer to Boston that I've seen Premium gas over $5 per gallon already.
ALL the diesel locally here is over $5 per gallon already.

I was with my buddy yesterday when he stopped to fill his log truck up. A 90 gallon tank on one side that took 85 gallons and a small 40 gallon tank on the other that was empty.

$628 freekin' bucks ! Unreal

My wife drives a Chevy Suburban because she carpools about 7 kids back and forth from school, she filled up her tank last week and it came to $113 bones. This whole gas thing is bordering on ridiculous. Someone's making a boat load of cash and it certainly isn't me. We had a big discussion with the kids this weekend about planning how we do things to better maximize gas and time spent running errands. Need to get me one of them JB scooters for those quick trips to the store. The problem out here is there are so many idiot drivers I worry about getting killed. Another option we are considering is a street legal electric golf cart type thing.

Better get some chains & locks for those things JB. You're liable to come out of a store and find that someone stole not only the gas but the tank as well.

If there is hidden blessing in all this, the oil derrecks that have sat idle for years around here are getting fired up again. Guess the costs of production are offset enough that a profit can be had. Meanwhile, I'll either have to drive less or make more $$$.

I'm worried that we may be reaching a critical mass, but in the meantime,
because I've already streamlined all my expenditures since my daughter
is driving now and insurance is as insane as gas prices, there won't be
much change in my lifestyle. Only in my wallet.
