At Home

Happy Sunday! Not so happy actually. D is working and the girls are out. I'm home alone which totally depresses me. I would get in my car and go for a drive and maybe stop at my beloved Target and wander the aisle, but it would probably cost me almost 4 bucks just to get there and back!

Yes, I am totally ranting about gas.Again. We are getting to the point where we think twice before going anywhere. It's bad enough that just grocery shopping gives me the heevy jeevies. I paid almost $2 for a freakin' green bell pepper the other day. And don't get me started on the price of milk. I go in for a few things and it's always at least 50 bucks for one or two bags of groceries. I don't know how much longer we can go on like this.

We were watching our wedding video since D loves to remember the best day of his life and all :) Since we were poor we had his mom's husband videotape for us. The guy decided to video tape our limo as we were going to the reception. The interesting part is when we pass gas stations along the way. Gas was at .89 cents per gallon. Yes, it was 20 years ago. I must sound like my grandfather with the whole walking 20 mile and over hills stuff. But, my point is that last year around this time I paid $1.89 per gallon. That's a $1 increase over 19 years. Ok, acceptable and expected. Right now I am paying about $3.50 which equals over $1.60 increase in just.one.year! So wrong!

I heard that Maui is now over $4 a gallon. Ridiculous!

What irks me is this: gas companies are making record billions, while still getting their tax breaks. We are getting screwed.

Yeah, gas prices are really going nuts. My little Toyota Yaris is pretty good on gas, so my husband borrows my car a lot when he has to drive a long ways to a customer. It's cheaper than taking his van, so we try to cut back that way. I sure wish the price would come back down again!

Gas prices are insane and I heard that it's not going to get better any time soon. We have a car and a truck which means our truck doesn't get used much.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and entering my giveaway.

hi there! thanks for entering my giveaway! i have teenagers too! when we were in the states in 2003, petrol was $1.69. $3.50 is horrendous - it's just as bad here too - i have no idea what their excuse is. it really stops and makes you think about just jumping in the car, right?
