The price of gas never really bothered me. You see, my everyday car is a Honda Civic and I typically get about 37 miles per gallon. Sometimes more, sometimes less. I used to drive about 130 miles a day back and forth to work and it cost about $50 a week for gas. I recently moved and now a tank of gas lasts me about 10 days. My wife drives half the miles I do and when I fill her 4 Runner's tank it's always been $35 or more.
I filled my tank tonight and the pump clicked off at $30.03. $30.03 to fill a Honda! I've always put more than $20 in, but I'd never broken $30. I know at $2.599/gallon we've got nothing to complain about in the U.S. compared to other parts of the world, but sheesh. This is starting to cut into my mad money.
