Gas prices D:

I live in Elpaso Tx, they say that by the end of april or so gas will go up to $4.25 and keep going up! This is hurting us bad i can see already a ricer increase and mustang owners selling or putting away ther stangs to buy 4 bangers. This is sad really, i would so much rather get a bike than turn ricer ):

Just think of us over here in the UK! It's the equivalent of $7.86 for a US gallon most places for regular unleaded and $8.30 for super unleaded.

What's wrong with that? I know lots of ppl.who do. Mix in a little cedar for that rich smell... very nice. Thing is, you will get with it one way or another. Environmental and economic pressures are going to drive the price of gas higher and higher.

I'm not THAT old or that guy but when I started driving, it was .98 a gallon. Newports were 2.00 a pack and 20oz Mountain Dew was .80. $20 would fill my tank, smokes, a Dew and still had enough for Taco Bell where we met up on Friday nights for our CC. Phone call was still .25 when payphones were on every corner and EVERYONE had Beepers LoL

We also use a wood burner to heat the house. 120 acres of hunting property so in the spring we drop assloads of non essential trees and stock up for winters. Propane is expensive ($1900 to fill a 500gal tank 80% full) and we only use it for hot water heater and stove.

Re: Gas prices D:

It really doesnt matter if prices get to $10 a gallon, people will still fill their tanks The average prices we are use to (depending on your geographical location) have increased dramatically. Will they go up, or go back down? Every other day prices around where I live do go up but then back down. Since 1992, 20 years ago when I started driving, prices have increased over 3 fold. In the next 20 it will have increased, probably, more than that do to extreme economical reasons. Even then our children NOW will be doing the same thing we are, venting about gas price increases. I recall my father complaining at .78 a gallon, not understanding yet why, until I grew up...

Re: Gas prices D:

I won't sit here and b*tch about gas prices since I choose to drive a 5.4 v8 F150 that gets 13mpg but it will be nice to park that biatch, save it for rainy days and drive the bike during the week and the mustang on fridays and weekends.
