Time to start taking public transportation and walking as much as possible. We haven't had a car in two years since living in the UK. We will have 1 car when we move home but luckily SF has great easy public transport.

$4.84 in Northern California. The price of gas has definitely changed my driving. My friends and I carpool alot more when we go out together. I live a hour from the nearest large shopping opportunities. So, if one of us goes shopping we usually ask each other if anyone needs anything. I wish some of my coworkers would carpool, but so far I have not managed to convince any of them. Public transporation is out because we do not have any available in my small rural community.

Miss JP...I used two metal drums that I've had for years...I also have some heavy "plastic" drums...they should work as well...if dark in color. I would not use the white ones...Also when storing gasoline for longer periods a fuel stabilizer is called for....

I paid $4.04 today, but that is at the station that gives $.05 off each Sunday. Everywhere else was $4.09.

Paul and I have started carpooling to work
when ever possible.

I don't think it'll change any summer plans we have because we have
to go and we have to drive.
