In my gas tank last night. I've been ignoring the hype, but even for plus, that shocked me...

I might as well fly to Jekyll at that rate. Seriously.

After taking out a loan to fill my tank last night, I was very pleased I didn't buy the SUV.

My friend's gas card has a $50 limit. He had to swipe it twice to fill up his Suburban. $65. I finally broke the $30 mark myself yesterday.

Good news, though. They're predicting $100 a barrel soon.

Yeah... I broke the $40 mark for the first time today. But, it still ain't as high as it was when your former gov was pres (in constant $, of course).

Hell. Catfish and I will give you a ride if you help us kidnap Kelley and Queenie. Cat and I discussed this nefarious plot today.

I want Kelley to be there and I'd sacrifice one of Cat's testicles to meet Queenie. (Cat doesn't know about that sacrifice part, but we'll get him so drunk he won't care--- AFTER we disarm him.)

Whatcha think?

I put $100 a week in mine just to go to work and back. Good thing I can buy beer with my gas card while I'm at it. It helps ease the pain.

Shit Rob, my balls don't mean shit anymore. Many years ago Rob and I were hung, but due to Rob's cancer and my bad heart and back, those johnson's have gone west. Cat.

I'm just glad I only have to drive about two miles to get to work now, instead of the twenty I used to drive.

I could walk. Heh, right.

I'm sensing a vaccuum in the "I got balls" sweepstakes here. Not that it has anything to do with the price of gasoline, but I'm your huckleberry.

I soooo feel your pain. I average from 900-1400 miles a week....and do NOT get reimbursed on mileage..it's considered "the cost of doing business". Yeah - well...even with sales being up it's killing me. I fill the tank every.single.day. 6 days a week.

So glad I've only got 5 more days. It's just wrong.

Got ya all beat. Filled up the F350 with diesel a few days ago. $95

I almost hit $30 last night,,,$29 and some change. Good thing I get 32/mpg or I'd soon go broke! Even if the price of oil does go down, we still need more refineries to make the gas! Somebody better be gettin' on the ball here soon!

Can you imagine having a 3 hour round trip to the office everyday? I know people who do this. Damn.

Posted by: Sam at April 7, 2005 02:23 PM

That would be me Sam. Now you know two.

But I'm moving to Charlotte NC soon and hopefully will only have to drive 1.5 hours a day instead of 3.0.

Think I may have "won". I have a Tahoe and get about 18 miles to the gallon and drive around 500 miles a week...


Posted by: Christina at April 7, 2005 08:35 PM

I topped 40 all week long last week and twice last Sunday comin' home. This.Shit.Aint.Right. If, as "they" say we went to war for oil, I'd say we're gettin' our asses kicked, but I damned sure know better then that.

My company sells us gasoline for about 15-20 cents less a gallon then the goin' rate and I swear I couldn't wait to get back to work on Monday. When I did, the price tag at the work pump was a buck 99 a gallon...

Key, you're right. You're might as well fly.
