Life is Grand!!!

Good Grief!

My mom just called and told me that the gas near where she lives (about 10 min away from me) is at $3.09 a gallon!!! That's crazy! I thought that the $2.54 that I paid last week was waaaaay to much. I hope the prices will level off soon!

Ahhh, life is so grand!

It might level off as the summer season ends, but the rise in price right now is because of the damage in Louisiana and Mississippi. I think the US's only oil refinery is down there, so supply and demand is kicking our butt right now.

Life is grand for sure. Here in Nova Scotia, Canada our price per litre is at the equivalent of $5.00 per gallon...prices are reported to go up again today ($1.30 - $1.50 per litre = almost $6 per gallon...)Yowzers!! At least we're not experiencing the floods that the southern US is experiencing...watched it on CNN last night...just dreadful. Cheers!

It was going to go up past $3 anyways, but now since the catastrophe it went up sooner. We should see a decrease in the next week or so! I got gas today for $2.56. Still way to high!!!

Though the cost is far more here in England, you are having a surge right now.

I paid 2.77 today, and i was shocked. I feel like I should take a pic of the signs for posterity or something.

the days of cheap gas and 99 cents a gallon (remember that?? it wasn't that long ago!) are over.

i guess we all need to get psyched up to shell out for gas, or buy electric cars!

Oh yes, I can remember $0.99 a gallon! Those were the good ol' days where you could fill up your car for about $10.

That is the exact price where we are at. It just makes me sick.
