Default [rant] it was great...while it lasted

Gas Prices. Slowly but surely they are creeping right back up again. It was great a few months ago when I'd go to the gas station, give them a 20 and fill up my tank completely. Few weeks I noticed, it no longer filled up all the way. Paid 2.73 a gallon today. Ah well...it was great while it lasted.



Should we blame Obama for this?

What kind of car do you have?

But anyway... it does suck that the prices are going back up. But, I don't drive as much lately... so it doesn't really bother me right now.

HAHAHA! as for me, its good for my gf? her occupation is in the oil business so when prices go up, it keeps her job which pays a hell of a lot more than me.. but on the downside.. it squeezes my wallet. but not too bad.. i still have a few hundred left over each pay period.

Are you really suprise that they going up
Let me break it down

Everything will always go up
nothing is ever going to stay

even the price of homes will again sometime go up.

I think they lower the gas so the public stops bitching then slowly bring it back up
like it is now, then it will level and in a few months b4 the holidays BAM go up again.

But you know this so back on topic

yeah was nice

you say 2.73

around here 2.81 lowest in last 2 days

I felt it this weekend. I just hope it doesn't get as bad as it did the last time.

I should have gotten a v6 when my ex gave me the money for the car. But nooo, I had to get a stupid luxury car.
