    Remember when they said $5 a gallon gas. They are not saying that now. Bottom Line - Government slashes forecast for summer gas prices

    Have you thought about it? It's probably inevitable. Now what? What are you going to be doing differently? I guess I will pretty much give up all driving but to pick up necessities. Heck, I don't know, if the way prices keep going up if we will be able to afford even the necessities...

    My gutt is telling me that we need to put back as many seeds as possible because there are a lot of people out there that are "late bloomers" for this survival stuff and they are going to need our help with getting heirloom seeds and herbs. (my gutt is usually correct, unfortunately). The...

    we are in NC and our current price is $3.59 and rising. oil is not even $100 a barrel, it's ridiculous!! how much is gas in your area? I can't wait for hurricane season this year, that will surely give them an excuse to raise the price above $5 a gallon :sigh:

    I have a cold part to my home that is on the other side of the house. I was thinking about getting a gas heater, vent free, in that area. Anyone have one of those? If so, how do you like it? Pros? Cons? I currently don't have any gas heat so it would have to completely installed. Maybe I can get...

    As of June 18 Visa raised allowed hold by gas pumps from $75 to $125. The time of hold is still up to 72 hours. Visa has allowed $75 hold since 2008. With gas prices above $3.00 a gallon, $75 did not always fill the tank anymore and pumps were shutting off before larger vehicles were fully...

    I don't think we have an upper limit when it comes to $$$/gallon. We've waited too long to be able to travel. Although if it goes over $10/gallon, I suppose we'd have to give some thought to canceling. We travel with our dogs so we don't have to pay kennel fees, and so our special needs dog...

    With the cost of gas up around $3.60 imagine paying $1.25 per gallon. Google CNG (compressed Natural Gas). You will find this fuel a lot more common than you think. I had never heard of it before. I did some research and bought a factory CNG car three years ago and have loved it. My dad's...

(It seems that Libya has one of the highest oil reserves in the world. We also heard something yesterday on our news that we have gas stations that belong to the Libyan...
