If you’ve been reading this blog lately, you might remember that I’m trying to stretch my miles-per-gallon.

I just recently stopped to gas up, even though I was only down half a tank. This was how many miles I drove on half a tank:

I’m pretty pumped about getting 209 miles. What I wasn’t pumped about was how much that half tank cost me….

And that was at $3.90-something a gallon! Whoa! I remember when I could refill half a tank for 10 bucks!


Gas Prices vs Tomato Prices

Just about everyone is complaining about the price of gas.

Are the price of tomatoes going to get as much attentions as the price of gas? Check this out:




A gallon of gas is still cheaper than a pound of tomatoes. Granted, they are “organic”, which is premium, but it still hurts the pocketbook.


Brother, can you spare a gallon?

My car was down to a quarter of a tank, and with the price of a gallon of gas going up almost daily, I decided to fill it up instead of waiting.

When we talk about “pain at the pump”, this is what it looks like:

Holy Moly ! That’s $4.19 for the cheap stuff! I’m not going to tell you the exact location of the station, but I’ll give some hints: The station didn’t display it’s gas prices on a sign, it’s in Dallas, and the place also has a restaurant built into it.

If you’re wondering, I didn’t fill up there. I went to another place.

Pump your gas with caution.
