We're charged way more for bottled water that everybody buys and chugs down with no abandon. Or $2+ for a 12oz coffee. With how much I drive, it'* like my car is slurping a coffee in the morning, another at lunch, and a few bottled waters every day.

McTeague just reported that our 99c US dollar and $100 US gallon will mean $1.09/L starting tomorrow or Thursday....1 week AFTER McTeague hinted a huge drop in fuel prices in the long term due to the US economic slow down.

Doesn't matter though, we still pay and pay and pay.

I'd be bitching if I rode a moped. I don't complain about how much gas my car uses, I complain about how much gas costs...
By the end of summer, I'll have the Shadow done, and I'll be getting 30mpg, in a quicker car than the PA. The Buick will be my weekend and long trip car...

Yeah, it'* all relative. Everytime I fill up, I look at the extra money I'm using and say, damn, I could have used that to buy a pop if the prices were what they were two weeks ago...

The cost of gas now is one of the reasons that I don't get a "better" job - my drive time would nearly double to an hour to find decent work around here. It'* just not worth it. I'd consider taking a cut in pay just to find a job in my little town...
