Its annoying how the gas prices change everyday. They really should be consistent in their prices!

I just love the fact that every time the news happens to say any word about gas prices, they go up another 20 cents... then they lower them back down to a penny or two above where they were the day after that. The news shouldnt say anything about the prices. Agreeably, they hear things, but why enforce the owners of the stations to JUMP the prices only to take them back down to a few cents above where they were? REDICULOUS!

Not me to much (in a direct way).  But I have a 4 mile commute.  However, it will clobber me when it works its way through the grocery and retail prices.   :BangHead:

Gas prices where i live are $4.50 a gallon. OUCH!! It takes me $100 to fill up. Hope we can get some relief soon, how about dipping into the oil reserves that we have to help ease the gas price...

Yes. 3.99 per gallon. I work 3 hour shifts. at 7.90 an hour before taxes. I work 9 days per pay check so 27 hours. I get 198 per check and put 50 to 60 in the gas tank at the current gas prices. it really does hurt to have to put 1/4 of my pay check into the gas tank. thats money i could be putting away to save for retirement or the wedding or for things the baby will need once he or she is here.

I see no end in gas prices going up.  I think it is a shame that with all the employment here in USA that they raise prices on gas.  It is hard enough now without making it even harder.  I wish there were some way to stop the big wigs from doing it to us.  Maybe they have money, but us little people have a hard time just getting by.  May God bless every one.

its not fair, the gas company does what ever it wants and we cant stop them, I remember about 2 years ago when gas jump to over 5, the they lowered it a little and everyone was happy no remembered the price before it started going up from the $1 range

It's definitely hurting, although I'm doing a little better now that I was a couple months ago. I got a hybrid and now I finally understand why people love them so much.
