    Well, it is painful!!  For everyone.  The only people winning here are the gas companies.  Does anyone know how to get a job at Exxon?  :P

    It "Broke" Us - Literally...

    My husband and I are small business owners, and the ever-rising price of fuel is one of the biggest things that has contributed to our recent decision to shut down.  Sad part about it  - we are not alone.  I have other friends/contacts that are in the same boat...

    Gas Prices On a Rise!

    I just apply to a job that inquires a 45 minute drive one way. I am not sure on distances but I do know that is going to cost me some money on gas. Thank god, I'll be making some $$$ or it would not be worth my time to fill out that job application.

    One Can Only Hope

    I was spending over $600 a month in gas and I went to my boss and expressed that it would be better for me not to work at all with the gas prices.  She has allowed me to work at home several days a week for this reason. I read somewhere on the internet that someday it is...

    Gas Prices Stress Me Out a Bit

    I paid 3.35 yesterday, and it just kills me because I remember when I paid .99 a gallon, and could fill up my tank on $20.  Now I am lucky to hit the half tank on $20.  Getting rid of our huge Dodge Ram helped but I sure do miss it!

    I have decided that if gas hits $4 a gallon, I will no longer be coming into work. Or at least I will be buying a horse and the state highway patrol will have to deal with me riding horseback on the freeway to get to work everyday. The price of gas is ridiculas!!!

    It's a Good Thing
