Gas Prices
    #4057090 - 04/15/05 01:24 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Everyone is going crazy expecting gas prices to shoot to $3.00/gallon for regular by the time summer rolls around. Personally, I don't think the national average with hit that high, but, I am prepared either way.
What will you do if gas prices shoot completely through the roof?

Eh, the Camry gets 420-430 miles to the tank. Plus, Atlanta gas prices are always signifigantly lower than the rest of the nation. Last time I filled up it was something like $2.05/gal for mid grade.

Don't really have a choice for the walking thing. I live in uber suburbia(friend of mine from the city called my place bumblefuck). Besides, even if I did live in the city, Atlanta has shit for public transportation in comparison to other cities.

Here's the real answer: even though gas hit $3 in San Francisco public transportation ridership is only up 3%.

I'm just glad SUV sales keep going down. I hate those things for many different reasons.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

if you guys had heard, gas prices dropped on average 4 cents a gallon due to less demand... so the less you drive, the cheaper it is

Demand kept rising this week in my state and in one, if not more, of our neighboring states. What is this I hear about getting a tax break (or something similar) if you can prove your SUV is used more than 50% of the time for work purposes? Is it true?

i've already started carpooling and generally just staying at home more often. i commute 30 miles one way so biking is a bit extreme. ATM it cost me ~$5 per round trip to get to work and back. Luckily groceries, pet supplies, etc are directly within that route so i can combine outings with my commute.

I'm also asking for a raise to offset my commute prices.

I deliver pizza for a living, and my monthly gas cost has only gone up about $20.
