Ever since the gas prices have started getting really out of control, since hurricane Katrina, I have heard several times that gas would be up to $4 a gallon by summer, by Christmas, by spring, by Labor day. They have been fluctuating a lot, and it would not surprise me a bit to see the price skyrocket again. But I am not going to sit on the edge of my seat biting my nails waiting for it to happen. If it happens, I'll deal with it. Minimum wage in my state has gone up recently, and I have heard talk of raising the federal minimum wage. We all just have to make adjustments, wherever possible, to make it work.

The gas prices are just plain crazy and out of hand. Here is a link I hope can help you out, put in your zip code and it will give you a list of all the gas stations, prices and maps in your area, so you can find the cheapest gas station selling gas. http://autos.msn.com/everyday/gasstations.aspx?zip=&src=Netx

"Greaaaaaaaat..."/sarcasm... isn't it? -_- The best part is the following: - Government won't lower the taxes on gasoline - Auto dependent development, lifestyles are still encouraged (citizens mainly) - No one wants buses (leaders and citizens) - No one REALLY wants rail (leaders and citizens - No one wants the short-term solutions (leaders and citizens) - No one wants private and public joint long-term solutions (again, same fools) - Auto makers and society are barely even trying on alternative fuel cars (even mylot discussions highlighted some promising alternatives, but the parties mentioned either can't or don't care about this) I have no choice but to /facepalm and /temple rub over this one. Time for some asprin for this and for the semi-gouged gas prices.

trust me I can truly understand. I was driving and living in Miami Florida. You know you need a car there. The gas prices went up the roof. I am paying my bills,rent,car,and insurance, living on SSI. So I started parking my car and bought a bike for myself and my daughter. Still paying off my credit report. I called the dealer and told him my situation. I returned the car and went on my way. There was no way I was going to pay for a car I was not driving. The gas was killing any cash I had. Dear we all know how hard it is. I have been there. try to find something you like and make some money doing it. While getting this done. Pay off what you can and you will see the benefits. I here mim wage is going up everywhere.

Gas prices are outrageous!! I don't know how they expect anyone to do anything. It doesn't make any sense...something has got to give!! I drive 30 miles one way to work every day and I have to have a car....people with SUV's and vehicles with V8's in them are killing themselves paying for the prices as they are now...just imagine how it will be when they hit 4 + - - Terrible!!
