But at least you have a well-developed public transit system, which is something that the U.S. has allowed to vanish outside of major cities. I love train travel and wish we had the great passenger train service that was once prevalent in the U.S. It would certainly help cut our use of gasoline.

It's going to cost me over $6 the next time I fill up.

Filling up your lawnmower Rich, or is that a typo? My Silverado excedes $65. for a fill up from and empty tank. Fortunatley I don't drive 60+ miles round trip to work everyday anymore.

Gas is averaging about $2.96 here. It is a little higher here than back from the beach. When I got on the ship Sunday before last it was about 20 - 25 cents less than when I got off last Sunday. I didn't watch the news onboard other than the weather. My first thought was what happened? I am glad we filled up first, we had enough to make it out of Florida. It was about 10 cents less in Georgia. I am glad I don't have to drive far to work, and can work from home some days.

I wonder how well those Hummers and giant SUVs are holding their value now.

Not really Trvlpro, My wife & I use a 400 cc scooter for 98 % of our travel needs here in Florida & since we're retired a 2 gal tank usually lasts me the week. It's certainly not an option for everyone but it works for us. The only problem is that the gas in my car is sitting there getting stale. The last time I filled it was back in mid Sept after our trip back to Jersey.

Do you put Stabil in the tank when leave the car? It will keep the gasoline fresh for a long time.

I suppose I should- but I don't. So far I haven't noticed anything detrimental & I've been doing it for 3 years.

The cheapest I could find last week was $2.95/gal, on my way in this morning, the cheapest I saw was $2.98/gal. I drive 80+ miles a day just to/from work, if I go out to lunch (which I usually don't) add at least 10 more. I have a little Nissan Versa and it still costs me about $60/week in gas. Sure wish I could find a job closer to home or one that paid better.
