Well, it happened! Charged over $60 for full tank. $4.14 for Silver at the station I went to. Just grateful I have 6 cylinder. Tahoe was at the next pump and he was still there when I left. This is truly mind baffling that people are willing to pay this much for gas and without a rally of some kind. I did see group of 5 people praying and singing at one service station here. I am not complaining, if we all did that maybe it would make a big difference. I believe that for sure.

still holding at $3.95 here in NJ but I've seen some places that are $3.91 if you pay cash. This whole gas thing stinks. They know we need it, so they will charge whatever they want. What they don't realize is that it's bringing everything else up in price. The people that were just getting by with their pay checks aren't anymore. Something needs to be done. They really should drill here in NJ. That would improve the supply and thus, cost would go down because these other companies would have competition.

It's $3.89 down here in south Texas now. Woohoo! We have a flex fuel vehicle now but I have yet to use ethonol. Any suggestions so I won't screw up my new car? DH says ethonol may be cheaper but burns faster so it adds up to be the same.
