its expensive but we arent like china, we cant ride bikes everywhere. oil companies have most of us by the balls. we'll pay the price no matter how high it goes because we all need to be places.

Still drive eight 60 mile trips each weekend to see my gf and 30 a day during the work days. But I have a good high school job and it helps plus I have a 4-banger!

They haven't for me, but I make good money. I drive 90 miles round trip a day though also, so I just suck it up and take it.

I find with the prices up I'll drive a bit less than I normally would. Going to be very interesting in the next year or two... if the US dollar doesn't start recovering soon north American gas prices will start jumping to Europe levels average price $8.70/Gal

Price this morning here in Ottawa, Ontario was $1.22/L and it cost me about $70 to fill it up. I don't drive anywhere unless its absolutely necessary anymore. Sucks.. but what can we do right?

haha im gonna cry this weekend, gonna put close to a thousand miles on my truck, its lifted on 33s with stock gearing, so my mpg is nothing to brag about, its gonna cost me over 100 bucks in gas, and thats assuming the weather is good and i dont have to use 4x4 which will drain the gas even more...

Nope. Not one bit. If it keeps going up, maybe there'll be less dumb***es on the road? And it costs me like $13 to fill up my bike so another reason I don't care...

As a roofer, stand up straight and keep your feet under you, you'll be fine. 8/12 are walkable, tho I like to set a jack and board at the eve, just in case.

Default Re: Have gas prices affected driving your baby around?

the cost of gas here in ID is about 3.60gal and that hasnt affected my driving around at all, even though i have a 4wd 4.0. my commute is about 2 miles each way every day. and with winter activities i was making a run to the ski hill 20 miles away 1way 2x a week. i generally go through a quarter tank a week. its not to bad. and ive lucked out as president of my universities snow club, me and my VP generally drive to all our activities, we managed to budget gas into all of our trips, so the school pays for it. premium none the less. so these are the trips to local ski resorts weve made this year... all free. leaving pocatello headed to: grand traghee, WY 2x; jackson hole, wy; lost trail, Mt, moonlight basin, mt, beaver mountain, ut; pebble creek, ID.
