Anybody feeling the pain?
Oh, THAT kind of gas pain. Not.....never mind...
Yeah buddy. I just plopped down $150 to fill the tanks in my pick up. No matter how you cut it, that is a major OUCH!
It seems like only a few years ago, I could fill my mini van for $24....wait a minute, that was just a few years ago!!
$8.5 dollars a gallon in the uk. Now that makes your eyes water when you pay for a full tank
I spend a hundred buks a week in gas, plus rent and utilities. I'm a hurtin unit big time. I gave it to God to sort out for me cuz I can't. I have seen this gas gauge before, but now it aint so funny. srry....ugh!
I just bought a 2004 Kia Rio. I think I can make the payments with what I save in gas.
You're probably not far from being right. I'm getting ready to travel to PA from CA and guessing my gas will be about $1000-$1200 if I take it really easy.
Just think of the people in Kenya and Uganda. Petrol (gas) there costs around the same as here in Oz - about $1.50 per litre (roughly $6 per gallon.) Difference is, most people there live on between $2 and $5 per day.
Why not fly????
We just flew from Orlando to Knozville Tn. for $58.00. That was for 2 people. Driving our Armada I couldn't get out of Florida for that amount!
The way things are going for us here in the states, we will be making about that pretty soon.
Just a tad difficult pulling the U-Haul trailer with the plane. Of course you didn't know that.
Just a thought.
Hehe ... that presents an interesting picuture, Nik!
I imagine the extra baggage fees for a u-haul trailer would be quite prohibitive.
I'm sure probably more than the price of gas.
Have you heard the latest: Airlines are going to soon charge extra for a seat to sit in while flying, and there will be a surcharge on air to breath.
I have just paid for the flights for my Malaysia trip (see prayer requests). As well as the actual fare, the detailed receipt lists:
* Passenger Security Service Charge
* Passenger Service Charge
* Seat Fee (to choose a particular seat, but with no guarantee that I will get the seat chosen)
* Travel Charge
* Bag Fees
* Booking and Service Fee
* Departure Tax
Together, these extra fees make up a quarter of the total cost of the ticket!!
