47 million people on the roads this week in the USA...

...and I am glad I won't be one of them! Lot of people who have not taken a Thanksgiving road trip to Grand-mom's house in years will be dong so this year. Why? One reason is the price of gas. It has not been as low as it is now in many years. One reason is the price of gas. In our area gas has dropped 11 cent in the past week. Prices are 65 cents a gallon cheaper than this time a year ago. People are feeling good about traveling by car while long lines at security checks at the airports and the threat of terrorism makes driving a better option than flying. I am not a flyer and have no reason or desire to fly. Whatever your mode of transportation, be safe! Drive carefully and keep an eye on those other 47 million people you will be sharing the roads with.

I couldn't believe seeing gas for $1.729 a gallon yesterday...but then, I saw diesel for $2.499 at the same station, and it used to be much cheaper than gas until diesel cars and pickups started becoming popular. I'm lucky, I only have a 5 mile drive to make on Thanksgiving. Won't have to battle traffic.

Yup, all those diesel lovers are cursing now aren't they. I only have to walk from this room to the kitchen, which could be dangerous come to think of it. They say most accidents happen within 25 miles from home, so I guess everyone should drive 26 miles just to be safe LOL!
