Thanks we filled up Sunday because we thought it would go up, I think it is up to around $2.80 a gallon here in Illinois at the moment. Our tank holds 64 gallons and to fill up these days is very painful indeed.

I haven't checked what the prices are today (still a little too early) but yesterday regular unleaded was between $2.49-2.59.

Well, I haven't been out of my house today...yet...but last night, regular was $2.79, then $2.89, and $2.99 - $3.09 for premium. I get so angry when I talk about this gas issue...I had nother thread on it before, where I predicted $3.00 per gallon!!! It will probably end up being $4.00.
I know atleast one person getting rich from this gas scheme...oh yes, never talk about politics or religion!!! Never mind

Gee Joe you are very lucky it is that price there, ours is very high here, but spare a thought for the poor Aussies who are paying something like $1.30 per litre which when converted to the gallon is $5.90 per gallon. :eek: When we converted to Metric in Australia gas became available by the liter instead of gallons.
The United States is still relatively cheap in comparison so far.

They just announced that the white house is releasing some oil from the reserve so hopefully that will helpe to lower the gas prices.

I was planning on going to the AMA dog show the weekend of Sept 9th but now I'm rethinking if I should go. I just don't know.

We went from around $2.55 to $2.89 now. I am planning on taking the kids to water country Friday one last time before it closes for the season. Gas is outrageous, I hate to think how much I will use Friday.

Your thought reminded me of an e-mail I got a few years back...



You think a gallon of gas is expensive????????

Diet Snapple 16 oz. $1.29 $10.32 per gallon
Gatorade 20 oz. $1.59 $10.17 per gallon
Ocean Spray 16 oz. $1.25 $10.00 per gallon
Brake Fluid 12 oz. $3.15 $33.60 per gallon
Vick's Nyquil 6 oz. $8.35 $178.13 per gallon
Pepto Bismal 4 oz. $3.85 $123.20 per gallon
Whiteout 7 oz. $1.39 $25.42 per gallon
Scope 1.5 oz. $.99 $84.48 per gallon

And this is the real kicker ....

Evian Water 9 oz. for $1.49 $21.19 per gallon, for water and
the buyers don't even know the source!

So, the next time you are at the pump, be glad your car does'nt run on
Scope, Whiteout, or worse yet, Pepto Bismal or Nyquil ! !
Hope this will ease the pain of your next trip to the pump ! !
