Thanks to that nice storm down there, it looks like there's a good chance gas taps $3.00 by the middle of next month... <_< They have people driven by fear that people are lining up to get gas tonight, and on the new they are talking about running out of gas...I don't think so.. :angry: And the price around here jumped 10 cents locally, though I'm hearing a few stations on the east side were creeping to 3 bucks... I'm not filling up...I'm thinking of using my bike a bit more...

I put $5 in the GA today to hopefully last a few more days... Damn, this isn't looking good. I'm out of money, so my parents will have to go back to paying for all of my gas unlike the 60/40 deal...

Rumors of $3.00/gallon started at about 5:00 tonight, I topped off at $2.49 just in case and went on to make GREAT money on tips. My thinking is that every delivery should pay for a gallon of gas, because my tips and comissions need to cover gas/oil changes/etc, so thats my standard. My comission (right now) is $1.10/delivery, it goes up when gas goes up, my average in tips tonight was like $2.75, I was pulling in close to $4/house. How sweet is that? And gas is still $2.49, plus I was really light on the throttle tonight, so I still have a lot left. I never took the car over 3000 rpm.

Is there away to transfer gas from one car to the other, because my car has half a tank and my wifes car has a full tank so i figured a half tank would be fine on a 4 cyl. car?

Impala Pete, has someone been a bad influence on you? You sound like another regular poster here. http://www.cheersandgears.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/AH-HA_wink.gif

I filled the truck up Sunday at $2.43/gal.

Tell your bike I'm happy for him, dave. Life is too short.

When I first read the title of your post, it sounded like your bike is having any identity crisis.  LOL!  Posted Image

Now, I'm not that old, but does anyone remember that not long ago, regular fuel was like $0.89/gallon? I used to fill up my 1993 Mercury Tracer for like 11-12 bucks!

When I turned 16, I had a gas guzzling Dakota, but gas was freaking $0.99/gallon or less, that was all of five years ago.

How did u go from a 93 Tracer to a 92 Century?

Gas here $2.69-2.79 about.

When I had to get rid of the Tracer, my mechanic knew of an old couple retiring and moving down to 1 vehicle. They decided they were going to get rid of their 92 Century and keep their Honda Odyssey. My mechanic informed me the car was in mint condition, low mileage, and he had been giving it oil changes since they got it. The wife only used it to drive to and from work, which was less than 3 miles from her house. So, for 2,500.00, I got a 1992 Century in 2002, with 38,500 miles on it.

Was a great deal, couldn't pass it up. Now, the car has approximately 92,000 miles on it and still runs great.

Yesterday it was 2.90 here; I filled up the Alero at 2.70 the other day. Someone said that in a city about an hour away that they were up to $3.50 a gallon. That's not a good sign at all.

Up north, gas is $1.10/L, which comes out to be about $4.16/Gal. All you really have to do is adjust your spending and everything will be fine.

Yeah, I just passed a BP not too far from the house, and the gas was $3.20 for regular self-serve!

Arg. Commuting a long distance (which I have to do with my job), isn't going to be nice--at least it's closer than my last job!

I feel lucky in the the fact that I don't live too far away from work

If you have a 15 gallon tank and use it all in a week, you're talking $15 extra a week. *Use less a/c. *Combine trips. *Don't get high-octane unless you need it. It sucks, but its not catastrophic. I'm looking at $2.60/gal for 93 octane, $2.50 for 87.

I have no idea how many gallons my tank holds... But I'm using it up in less than a week. But that's with taking alot of rides for the hell of it and driving it hard. Luckily, the A/C doesn't work, or I'd burn even more... No more of all that, though. Not with gas prices being this high. Today, gas was $2.62... If I had money, I'd fill it up now, before it gets any higher.

Well, there you go - bitching about how much gas costs while still, as you put it, driving around "for the hell of it." Stop doing that and you'll use less gas. D'uh. I'm not trying to pick on you, but its like someone I used to work with who got rid of an old 4cyl Frontier and leased a brand-new Nissan Armada then bitched about how much gas was. D'uh, idiot. Here's your sign.
