Katrina, you bitch!

Okay, I know with all the suffering that's going on I have no right to complain, but I cannot hold my tongue about this. I just filled up my mid-size sedan and it cost $53.00. Damn...

I must say this concerns me just a tad. Since I fill up once a week that's (counting on fingers and toes) $212 a month or $2544 a year. Fortunately, I can bring my lunch to work instead of eating out or eat chicken instead of steak, but what about the people who're already doing that? What about the kids like my son and daughter who spend their whole paycheck on their car and insurance. What about the people made homeless by hurricane Katrina?

Maybe someday we'll talk about that time gas prices went all the way up to $3.50 a gallon. I can't wait.

I'm with you on that one. I have the same fill-up schedule. I'm trying to figure out ways to drive less. My commute is 42 miles per day (round trip). It sucks

Now maybe my argument that I should get a motorcycle to help save gas might work... Ah, who am I kidding? At least I only have a small pick-up to worry about.

My VW gets better mileage than my bike!

I suspect, sadly, that we'll be looking back fondly to the time when gas was 'only' $3.50/gal.

My daily commute is 98 miles round trip everyday. So I'm filling up usually on the 4th travel day.

This prcing thing is crazy.. and if you think it through, it's not really very logical... There's no way, any sort of storm damage to one small area of the country, should have this profound an effect on the entire nation...

Trust me, our enemies are watching, and learning from, this....
