Gas is becoming outrageously priced in our area. Of course, people won't do anything to conserve, which only serves to drive the price higher and higher. For instance, we are a town of less thatn 4000. We have 1 elementary school in the city limits. There are 6 buses that run in the mornings to pick children up for school. These run practically empty because everyone here sees dropping their child off at school as a 'sign of wealth' and 'upper crust ' behavior. Only lowly children ride busses. So these huge buses run, using gas like crazy two take 3-4 children per bus to school. Meanwhile there is a line of traffic over 3 miles long awaiting their turn at the drop off point right in the front door of the school. This line of traffic causes a hugh traffic issue downtown...forcing everyone to use more gas sitting in the traffic! So 300 parents drive to the school, using gas for 300 cars, in addition to those previously mentioned buses! I get furious! Assuming crap like this goes on all over the country, no wonder we are so indebited to foreign countries for oil/gas. Anyway, here in Eastern Ky, gas is hovering around 2.80/gallon.

I know what you mean, someone i know suggested a plan to stop gas prices from going up, he suggested to only go to the cheapest places like we all stop going to Exxon, Ammaco, and then it would force the high end stations to lower there prices and then the low end stations would follow in the foot steps i think that would work!!

I think that is quite expensive. Even now, I prefer to take public transportation as my way of saving fuel. Here in the Philippines it's less that $1 but our cost of living here is just way lower that yours too so I guess that is just natural .

Hubby went yesterday and it was $3.35 per gallon for regular. That is a .06 jump since Friday night. It's really bad. We are in Southern Oregon. Have you all heard of the "NO GAS on May 15"? I really think we need to get as many people as we can to join this effort and show the gas companies that we can do something...stop buying their products if necessary. Chevron posted a 4.7 billion dollar profit in the first quarter of 2007, that's up 18%. There are no gas shortages right now, so why are the prices so high. For many families right now it is a choice between food for the family or gas in the vehicles to get to work to pay the other bills. Something must be done.
