gas here jumped 30 cents yesterday, to $3.39. Combine that with the storm of the century almost every week and I'm staying home a lot.

3.20 a gallon Wonder where this is all going to end. If the companies we work for dont start paying better mileage, how are we going to afford paying out of our pockets much longer.

Average $3.13 here & I hate it I try not to buy any more than I absolutely have to. Not doing much Msing these days. Sticking with my regular job of merchandising, doing as much as possible in one day & staying home when not at work.

hmmmm At what point will it be cheaper just to stay home from work?

My drive is 35 miles each way (no train or bus options). Fortunatly I have a Prius so I average 45 MPG.

One summer before I bought my hybrid, I decided NOT to teach summer school based on the fact that the gas prices would cost me $10 a day to drive the car to and from work, an hour and a half round trip of my time, to work 3 hours and make $66 BEFORE taxes.

I was better off staying home. Since then, I have enjoyed my summers off!

Currently we are seeing $3.29 at the pump. It was $3.06 last week.



I do use gas cards that help reduce my cost. I have a BP card that gives me 5% back in either cash or gift cards. (I earned $100 in 6 months with my little car)
I also have a Discover gas card that gives me 5% back on gas for the first $1200 spent per year, which you can increase your cash back for gift cards ($20 turns into $25) Since it has a cap on it, I only use that when I don't go to BP.

You can also use your Discover card for gas at Sam's Club, even if you don't have a membership per se, as they treat it the same way. Sam's is often a few pennies less around here.

As of right now I average $100 week merchandising & spend about $20-$30 on gas so still a profit but it could be better. One of the merchandising companies is a "regular" employee/employer type job so I can't choose to not do it unless I quit completely. Can't afford to do that !! I checked into bus service but because this is a rural route it would end up costing me more than the gas does.

On March 8 I entered 3.20 a gallon. As of today it is up AGAIN, now at 3.30 a gallon. Ive been checking the job sites regularly, and have found two local MS positions so I can possibly give up some of my long distance work. At 26 cents a mile it used to pay for at least the gas to service out of town work. When fueling up digs deep into my pocket, it isnt worth it any longer.

Sounds like you guys are just arriving at the prices we've been paying for months. Last time I looked it was 3.45 here (at the cheaper stations) but it's probably gone up again since then. Seems to me I heard on the local TV news recently that WA state currently has the highest rates in the continental US. Lucky us!

As if the price of gas isnt bad enough, I heard that some of the big companies that have many Semi's on the roads delivering our groceries, and other goods are pulling some of their trucks off the road. With deisel going at 399.9 a gallon just to fill one truck costs over 1200 dollars. This is all going to hit us deep in the pocketbook. I wonder how many of us will be able to still do merchandising work.

$3.29 in Indiana right now. And I work at a truck stop and yes, the truckers are pulling off the roads. I can't say that I blame them. Even I am pulling off soon.

Have a lovely day!

$5 Gas By Labor Day

Pain at the Pump
Gas prices have risen to record levels in March thanks to soaring oil prices, which rose above $110/barrel for the first time. And if prices keep rising you can expect to see a big surge very soon when you are filling up your tank.
See why 24/7 Wall St. thinks $5 gas is a strong possibility by Labor Day

But while people across the nation are feeling pain at the pump, some states are being harder hit than others.

Worst States per gallon #1 Being Worst.
1.California - 2.Hawaii - 3.Washington - 4.Oregon - 5.Alaska
6.West Virginia - 7.Illinois - 8.Indiana - 9.Ohio - 10.New York

Best State per gallon
New Hampshire

As of right now gas prices are:
regular: $3.22

Not sure about premium. We use mid grade for all of our vehicles.
