    Merged: So...how 'bout them gas prices? / $3.09??!!

    Are you as irritated as I am?


    It's currently $2.89 where I live. The word on the news channels is that we can expect gas prices to be around $3.50 by Memorial Day and then stay over $3 for the summer.

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

    Feel free to get your frustrations out in this thread...

    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    Glad I only have to fill my car up about once a month.

    Just buy the stock of oil companies or energy mutual funds.

    Yeah, I'm irritated. Especially since there seems to be no good reason for it. For fear of getting political, I'll shut up now.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I don't miss that. I used to put 300-400 miles a week on my car when I lived in Atlanta.

    Not to mention spending 2 hours a day in the car.

    I have a 35 mile commute each way. Luckily, it's almost all highway miles so my fuel mileage is pretty decent. Well, decent for an F250. Takes me about 40 minutes.

    I've put 6,000 miles on my car in the last three years. It's a nice change.

    That would be nice. I'm averaging around 13,000/yr on my car now.

    Really wish I could cut that down a little.

    I used to have a short commute when I lived in town. I certainly don't miss the traffic but it did keep the miles off the car. Either way, I'm much happier where I am now.

    If that's true I'm glad my wife and I are both teachers and have the summer off. We still drive then of course, but not as much as during the academic year.

    On a related note, it is good schools don't have to run bus services during the summer. We better pray to God prices drop before late August. If you think there are too many operating levies now...
