How much do you spend a week on gas?
$270 (work)

Is it going to get better?
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.

How much will you have to spend?
I expect gas prices here (currently 2.99.9) to rise to 3.59.9 before the end of summer.

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.

I drive a diesel f250 truck, used to be the cheapest fuel around...now it's right at 3 bucks a gallon. Wife has a Tahoe, not the most econamical vehicle. The bikes are 17 dollars a fill up...:dontknow: The oil co.s are breaking all time profit records, time to reign them in a bit!

Probably on average $50 on the bike $70 on the car. Summer months this changes a fair bit.

about $35 every 2 weeks in the wife's van and about $35 every 3-4 weeks in my van and about $40 a month for the bike. I have to fill up off base for the bike and it runs about $20 to fill it up. I did not add in any extra riding into these numbers. Gas right now is $3.01.
