I think they have us right where they want us...did you ever think we'd be saying "Thank goodness gas is $3.50 a gallon".

As our gas has been $3.35 for a little over a week, I thought, ok, that's all it's gonna do, I went ahead and filled up yesterday morning. Yeah, well, yesterday on the way home, $3.29!! lol
Oh well, hopefully it goes down more by the time I need to fill up again.

I almost did that Miss Stacy...I saw $3.39 and was tempted to fill up my truck...35 gallons at least...but I limped on home rolling the dice it would drop a few more pennies...I haven't been back to civilization to see if my gamble paid off! We'll see.

Well we pay about 8 dollars a gallon here in France. Nothing extraordinary, it's always been high here. That's why most people drive little cars, walk and take public transportation.

$2.14 down the street from my office. Some places you have to pay attention to though, they'll add $0.10 if you use a credit card. Most places are $2.29 - 2.39.
