Yesterday, the local gas station was 3.99 a gal for gas AND 4.09 for diesel fuel. This is in central CA where we drill for oil!
I filled up our suburban today...it cost 136.00. I also live in a state rich with oil...but our fuel is also one of the highest.
Shepard Smith ( Fox News ), just reported that Libya, will stop the flow of oil to the world. No surprise their.
Get ready for $5.oo +.........
This is just so worrisome. I know we are supposed to trust God to provide for us but it's very hard for me to do that at times. I just want for my family to be safe and provided for.
I don't drive.
Kelly, I am very limited in my range. If it's not on the bus, I don't go there. I'm glad that's been my whole life. If I want a real treat I might take a $10 cab every few months.
However, my bus ride only costs me $1.80 a day maximum.
Gas prices aren't as vital to me; but I have noticed in Houston: they don't do the board with the plastic numbers anymore.
Nope, the signs are all going DIGITAL! Very easy to push a button and raise prices now!
I expect the bus fares and cab fares to go up to. I also expect to see severe restrictions on the paratransit service. Currently someone can have up to 6 trips a day. Not for long, I bet.
Good thing I live on the bus route, with a handcart and the will to use it.

I get my Bibles here
I was doing some random searching on gas prices around Houston and ended up finding a map of gas prices by county that includes the mainland 48 states, Alaska & Hawaii aren't shown, but seems to stay up to date.
May be interesting to watch in the coming days & weeks. Also notice the legend on the bottom right corner of the map, ranging from cheapest possible prices in dark green (Under $3.06 - $2.70's in Colorado at the moment) to highest in dark red (over $3.64 - almost all of California minus 9 counties in the middle)
3.58 at Costco in Orange County. CA this morning. It was 3.19 when I gassed up last week.
Around $3.22 here in the Missouri Bootheel. (Or my neck of the woods, anyway.)
We're more fortunate than Europe. In London gas is at about nine dollars per gallon right now. The thing is, people in London use mass transit and either bike or walk much more than we are able to in the United States. We would not be able to sustain nine dollar-per-gallon gas.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1
In the event of darkness, depression, sadness, or loneliness, your Bible can be used as a flotation device.
Washington state: filled up today $3.44 - couple of days ago, $3.22
Here in Northern VA last week gas was $3.19 a gallon, today it's $3.35. My dh just said last night that we need to be drilling for oil here in the States. I told him good luck with that because 0bama and his cronies have, thus far, not only ignored a Federal judge's overruling 0's moratorium on drilling, but has even had to find this administration guilty of being in contempt of court - which 0 is also ignoring. I told him 0 is allowing everybody and his brother to drill off our shores except us. Sorry, back on topic and off my soapbox now.
I feel like our light bills will double or triple, as this increase comes, making it harder and harder to meet these two bills alone.
Our Leaders ( O'Bama ), have yet to lift a finger to get on with drilling program, Well maybe they have, BUT with more and more restrictions, which raise's cost on to use .
This Fox News Story says it all, More Government Red Tape.
This story is a year old.
It doesn't take a Genius to figure out what they ( O'Bama) And his Clones are doing.
Oil is at $97.88.. spot. Threats to go much higher.."I guess this is movement in the right direction, but it's painfully slow. It's clear that President Obama is going to preside over a continuing de facto moratorium for months or years, with new drilling held back to a fraction of previous levels
Will this be the Key That pushes us / world, over the edge to the OWG ? ...
Will this start the Riots ? It may if people can't feed themselfs...
As of today our cheapest unleaded is $3.22 gal.

In Houston, gas jumped up about 20-30 cents. I go to Kroger because it seems to be cheaper w/ a discount card. Highest Ive seen it so far is about 3.35...and thats inside the Beltway..outside and away from the highways is where its cheaper.
I'm reallllly considering getting a scooter/motorcycle...I'm also doing a tuneup on my truck to help w/ mileage. I've read online where you can turn any car into a hybrid or electric car. Its just the parts/materials that you'd have to worry about. Then getting it reregistered.
STRONGLY CONSIDERING IT!!
Maranatha, Lord come get me QUICK/Jesus, I'm sick of this flesh/I'm a mess, I need you/And look forward to glory reveled when I see you...
He's coming back, for a bride in a red veil/You'll see he's still alive/When he cracks the sky like an egg shell...
