West Ky is now at $3.80/gal.
May start crimping our lifestyle.
Cut McDonalds down to only once a month instead of twice a month.
$55 for a fill up in a 2013 Nissan Altima ,Im glad I get 35-40 mpg, but Im still cutting back on some driving.
Its hurting my working kids more than me, going to work everday cost them a lot more.
I think the worst may still be coming.

Will it hit $5 /gal this year?

$3.89 for ethanol-free 87 octane in my area. I average 24mpg in my Impala and spend about $150/month on gasoline. Less money for guns & ammo!

don't even look. I know the station I go to is always within a couple cents of the next station and usually lower. Gotta have the gas and not gonna drive extra just to save a whole dollar. Only drive 12 miles a day anyways.

The way I see it, if you can't afford the gas, maybe it's not the best idea to have the car it's going in. One of those, "if you can afford the car, you should be able to afford the repairs and gas" things I guess.

This is very true. I know a couple people without cars for this reason. They could afford a decent car but the cost of fuel, insurance, licensing, maintenance, repairs, etc makes it smarter for them to use public transportation.

These days I figure $3,000/year to own and operate an reliable automobile.

Since you added your post right after mine, here's my situation.

We also have a 2013 Jeep Wrangler 4x4, 6 cylinder and a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee 6 cylinder and believe me I can afford the gas, repairs and ability to trade every year if I want too for all three.

Just don't drive the Shelby on a daily basis as there's no need to, it's a pleasure car. :D

And as Paul Harvey used to say "That's the rest of the story".

Heck, I was thinking, I shouldnt have got rid of all my horses, but they were costly to maintain also.

Thinking more on a good bycycle.:D:rolleyes:
