I am so sick of these gas prices, up to $3.56 a gallon. I used to be able to put $5 in my tank and it was half full now that's just a drop in the bucket. This is crazy, I soon can't afford to drive to the grocery store, when will it stop. Not only the gas but I noticed prices of other things are increasing too because of the price of gas these companies must up the price of their products, when will I get an increase in my paycheck? How long are we gonna take this, what can we do about it? What are you paying for a gallon of gas where you live?

The last time I got gas was a few days ago. It was $3.29 a gallon. I remember when I first got a car gas was less than $1 a gallon. It now takes me over $40 to fill my tank. It is getting a little crazy.

Try living in the UK. The same amount of fuel costs about $8 here.

A good chunk of our fuel costs are, and always have been, duty; ie tax. I'm not sure of the exact proportion these days but it's probably between two thirds and three quarters of the total price.

yeah, it is horrible the price of gas, in fact here is Mass a lot of the "mom and pop" stations are closing the doors, because they just don't like it or think it is fair. The part i think is funny, is that not only is the gas going up, but the food too and the president thinks that by giving us this rebate (don't get me wrong who doesn't love free money) is going to make everyone feel better. the way things are going, the $600 - $1200 people are getting, is only going to fill the gas tank a few times and maybe buy a dinner or two to put on the table!
