i heard on the radio this morning that people are paying in between 35.00 dollars and 60.00 dollars to fill there tank the question is how much are you paying????????
I find myself driving less and less... I pay all my bills but one online... I don't go to the store unless I have to... I will most likely keep driving the Mitsu to work as it gets 28-29 Mpg around town... 2.0 4cly with a 5 speed..

I filles up one day for $36 and 2 days later for $30.. I had to do a lot of running...

Gas right now for 87octane is 2.89.. So 93 here is 3.09 ...

If we all didn't buy gas for a week what would they do then?

Probably not a whole lot... Finguring they are all posting record PROFITS, I think they are doing alright. Exxon just toppled Wally World as the number 1 fortune 500 company...they made what....36 BILLION in PROFITS last year.

I remember when I tried to convert my '68 Ford XL (Full Size) with the high compression 390cid to run on wood. I gummed up the heads and bent some valves doing it, too!

Once we find something else to run on besides petrol... then the oil companies can get more competitive. Truth is, oil'* getting more expensive to get to all the time. When'* the last time you saw a 'gusher' (oil well, I mean)...

I filled up my Ford Aerostar yesterday for $49.90. 2.65/gal. I forget how many gallons.

PS: I'm in New Jersey and I don't think I can find that price today except on the NJ Turnpike service ares. Their prices are held steady until Friday by state law. The cheap stations today are pushing $2.80/gal.

About $50 USD fill up in the lesabre, the 18 gallon tank.

You know, most of the folks I hear bitching about the gas price are driving SUV'*.
The just HAVE to have that pénis extention.

As faras not buying gas for a week and those other types of boycotts -
Well, a person is gonna need to fill up sooner or later, and when they do, they will have to buy more gas than planned.

Remember people bitching about $1.69 a gallon?

Thats true... Sooner or later we will have to fill up...

Lets see here.. Maybe an example...

A friend has an old 71 Chevy Truck with a 350V8... Its a gas guzzler... He won't drive it unless he has to Tow something his car won't.. So he tows with his car and gets better milage doing it...LOL... He tells me His Park Ave does good on fuel.. For a large car he'* been nothing but impressed with it.. The 2.84 gears help too...

I can't understand how people can afford to drive a Hummer.. lol

I'll save money by driving the economizer, and drive the Bonnies on my days off...lol

Well, if we're lucky, it'll be like last summer. They were threatening us with 4 dollar gas, and it spike pretty freaking hard, but then it all leveled off. Remember??

Keep your fingers crossed.....

My remark wasn't intended to be aimed at you, or anyone else. Just my way of saying we gotta roll with the punches. AT least until one of us buys or inherets our own refinery....
my mistake then i am sorry about jumping you (cant remeber if i did or not )
anyway now that you sumed it up for me i understand completely
you have a very good point we DO need to drive our cars to get places
we DO need to play
but we SHOULDNT have to pay more than 4.00 a gallon if it gets that high i am going to be
