Dang! I just had a discussion on the cost of travel due to the high cost of gas. At that time gas here in Minnesota was $3.11 a gallon. Last night I filled up and it was $2.95 a gallon. We have the roller coaster stations it seems. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

we also got word today that our energy bills are being raised YET AGAIN this winter. so now we're paying so much in gas to just GET to work AND yet we HAVE to get to work, in order to pay our heating bills! it's so frustrating, and so hard to plan my budget anymore, cuz each month something flucuates this way or that way.

Gas here in small town Iowa is $2.97 a gallon. I know that's cheap compared to a lot of places around the country, but when you consider that most of the people who live here drive around 40 miles each way to work in Des Moines, it gets mighty expensive. Plus, my husband and I are flying to Oregon over Thanksgiving. We figure that if we had to pay for gas plus lodgings and food we could easily spend more driving than we will flying.

I got gas today at the grocery store for $2.95 a gallon. The grocery store gives you a $.03 per gallon discount if you pay inside instead of at the pump. You also get a free fountain soda with at least an $8 fill up, which of course is pretty easy with the way prices are. I usually get gas there. I go in and shop, load up my car and drive to the other side of the store and pump my gas. The gas station across the street only gives you a $.03 discount if you go inside and pay with cash. The grocery store does not care if it is cash, check, or credit.

America consumes more gas than any other country. They have the resources which are not tapped, probably preserved for future. They get their supplies from gulf. The gulf people keep on increasing the prices of petrol everynow and then. It is the common man who suffers. Every time gas prices put up, there will not be corresponding increase in salary or earning. It is the common man who loses his income on rising prices. It is high time our scientists and government should find new and renewable energy to run our cars!.

I swear I don't know where this is all going to end for the American people! I know quite a few people who have very long commutes to work each day and there's no public transportation available for them and not even anyone with whom they can carpool! In other words, they're scr*wed! Then to top it all off, when they did the calculations for the COLAs for those on Social Security they said inflation is LOW! For whom??? Annie
