Maybe if we all sell our trucks now, we can get nicer trucks for the same price in 3 months! lol
In the meantime we can buy econoboxes and sell them for a profit.

Or, maybe not...

Just got back from Indiana Wednesday , last fill up there was $3.09.
Still anywhere from $3.25 to $3.49 depending on what part of Chicago you drive through.

Today was not fun for me. $42 on the ranger for 3/4 of a tank, $100 on the silverado, and $45 on the accord. If it hits the $4 mark again I might have to get a reg cab 4banger to drive to work lol

it really sucks trying to explain to people why tire prices are getting insane too!

I remember putting gas in my sport trac and the pump always shutting off at $75 i think. Had to swipe the card and start again.
that was at the same time I moved here, 115 miles 1 way and I had ot make numerous trtips because none of the moving companies had any trucks larger than a panel van or smaller than their largest box
nothing like having to fill up 2 times a day for close to a week straight at close to $4.00 for regular.... and of course, less than 2 wks later itt dropped down to under $3.00 if I remember correctly.

It's $2.91 for regular here. Unfortunately I've been driving around the F250 while the Ranger's down.
Ranger = 18.5 mpg
F250 = 13.5 mpg
My 70 mile round trip to work every day is killing me.

It is being predicted that with in the next 2 years:

A) china will consume 95% of all oil exports by itself.

B) Oil will be selling in excess of $180 a barrel.

C) Gas prices will be in excess of $7 per gallon.

But leave it to Obama to ban off shore drilling by American Oil Companies. To ban, Oil Exploration with in the borders of the US.

It is being predicted that you are an idiot. In 2 years I am going to copy your post and point out that you are a foxnews loving toolbag.

I can't remember if gas is 3.35 a gallon or 4.35 a gallon. I guess I should be glad that some people pay the same but I have a feeling they're diesel people..

while i dont see an excess for $7 per gallon in 2 years, obama indeed sucks for banning oil exploration and offshore drilling .... hopefully hes gone come 2012

back on topic, $3.26 last week ... but i make sure to always fill up in vallejo ... my town is at 3.41! (and no i dont drive down there to fill up, but im out of town often enough that i just make sure to fill up there)
