Damn gas!
    #4727225 - 09/28/05 09:57 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

So I was walking to my local Fred Myer and wasn't too surprised to see that gas is still damn expensive, 2.80ish I believe (I know in Cali? it is well over 3.00)

I was wondering how everyone is dealing with that? As for me, I find my bike, feet, and public transit are the way to go!

Has anyone had to cut down on driving? Or how about the delivery guys who have to pay for gas?

I can't disc golf as much as I used to without paying out the ass for fuel. Soon as I find a buyer for my car I will be on the veggie oil, bitches!

I spend about $100/week on gas. I am a courier so I am driving all day. I have to pay for all my gas so it really sucks.

100 a week on gas!! Damn, does your boss know this, I think it is worth a raise to cover expenses!!

I have a early 90's truck and it sucks the gas, I just find there are places I don't really need to go to, or I'll just ride my bicycle instead.

Yeah they know gas really hurts us but we are independent contractors, so we take care of all our taxes. They are supposed to add a surcharge on all our deliveries now though so that should be helping out. The funny thing is, I drive a Honda Accord, which gets good gas mileage, but it's still $100/week!!! I feel sorry for the guys driving these V8 trucks around town.

I want to move somewhere that I can just ride my bike to most places that I need to go, then use the car for long-distance trips only.

My car's acceleration really blows, but it more than makes up for it with its 30mpg. I still love to speed on the highway, and am willing to shell out a few more bucks for it at the pump  :grin:

One time, I was stoned and forgot to put the pump handle back on the gas thingy after pumping gas and started driving off. It pulled the damn thing out!!! I forgot what I did. My friend was with me so we just took off. It was pretty funny. It was at this getto gas station too.....
