    I feel your pain. We are supposed to go on our annual pilgramage to NM next weekend and with the gas prices here at just below $3 (and who knows what we'll run into on the highway) I almost don't wanna go. We have a mini van that has a really big tank. Prices were $3.84+ for the cheap stuff last time I looked, but they seem to be rising a couple cents each time I pass by a gas station.

    I paid $2.99 today in Peoria, Illinois. I have a little, tiny 2001 Hyundai Accent. When I bought it I could fill the tank for about 10 bucks. Today it cost over $27.

    I drive a F350 crew cab dually diesel and just about have to mortgage the house to fill it! When we bought it 12 years ago diesel was CHEAP, like .79 cents a gallon! I paid $2.79 a gallon the other day, thank GOODNESS I only drive it 1-2 times a week and only have to fill it every 3 months or so. Hubby has a little Ranger and drives 45 minutes to work, filling it is KILLING us!

    Our gas is about 2.89 for the cheap stuff right now. I do a lot of pet sitting (along with my regular job) and I've already filled up twice this past weekend from running around to jobs. We have an 03 Alero and it costs about $35 to fill up each time. I just have to keep budgeting more and more for it each month....

    I found the cheapest to be $3.06 per gallon, but most places are $3.15-$3.27.
    My gas tank is almost on E I simply refuse to pay $3.15 when I can drive a mile further to find it .09 cents cheaper!
    I never fill up my tank, and limit my driving, supply and demand- if there is no demand, the prices will go down...
    I guess I will go back to taking the train to work next week!

    Ouch! I saw a station today at 2.89. We just bought a truck today and I am scared to see what that is going to cost!? We bought it for wood hauling and it is a 1980 Dodge so I know it is a guzzler.
