Weekly gasoline bill?

How much do you spend a week on gas? Is it going to get better? How much will you have to spend?

No. After Labor Day it usually drops in price. But even with a drop in price from $3+ to $2+, it's still too high. I don't think demand is going to decrease. Only way it will change is if more refineries are built or we drill for oil off CA, FL or in AK.

I expect gas prices here (currently 2.99.9) to rise to 3.59.9 before the end of summer.

Some days will stay a thousand years, some pass like the flash of a spark.

$100-150 maybe a high estimate

Just filled up this morning........42 bucks but since i only live 2 miles from work it will last about 6 weeks
I spend more riding my bike than i do going to work
My old job i drove 30 miles 1 way, that would suck now

gas here works out to just a bit under $4US/Gallon... i dont drive much for work, probably $30/wk in my truck. the good stuff is about $4.35US/Gallon and my bike probably takes $40-$50/wk.

i doubt it will go down anytime soon.

the shit that irritates me the most about gas in canada is the price fluctuations.. its not rare for the price to up/down 40cents/Gallon every day.

This may sound f-ed up, but I don't care if the gas prices are high. The higher it goes, the less people will want to drive. One less death machine on the road is fine by me. Besides, broke ass mo-fo's can't afford to maintain their car properly, which translates to me to be more fluids on the road, less air in their tires which reduces drivability, brakes that are worn out, and turn signals that don't work.
