the gas game

It cost me $70.00 to fill up my Tahoe today. SEVENTY DOLLARS!!! I think it was $3.47 a gallon.

That's just wrong. That's robbery. Oh, I wish I owned oil stock!
(Can you hear the crescendo in my voice?)

So I was wondering, how much did your last tank of gas cost you?

I think it was around $50, I don't look anymore! :) Our van has a 17 gal tank and I think I paid $3.47 too, Costco right? I am so glad I live so close to Costco so that I can always get gas there.

BTW, loved your MEME posts.

Wayne's first job out of college was at Ft Richie, MD and actually the War College is in Carlisle Barracks, PA I think but they are close together. And his sister lives in Lahaina, HI now.

I love sports too, I don't read the sports page first though, it's "Ask Carolyn" and then the comics and then if there is still time then the Sports page but I LOVE PTI, Tony and Wilbon crack me up!

I'm hoping for some good Idol chatter tomorrow. I think Andrew lloyd Weber is going to be a DISASTER!

blessings, jennifer

ps, you should have a contest for people to come up with a funny phrase using the random security numbers/letters that we have to type in. I'll try it the next time I comment.

pps, please don't red ink my comment and send it back to me. LOL

HI Jennifer, I love PTI, too...but I didn't want to mention it for fear everyone would glaze over. Yes, the war college is at "The barracks" as we used to call it....but we lived in Ft. Ritchie. And, I always read "Ask Carolyn" because it is a trainwreck. I just want to scream at those people. And, yes this week on Idol will be a disaster, but I will be flipping back and forth between that and Game 7 of the Caps!!! And, I won't red ink you because I have made approximately 100 writing faux pas in this comment alone. Thanks for playing along with my gas game!

$60. 18 gallons at $3.57! I used the fleet card...

Kat said...

Last time I filled up was a little over $50. I got "lucky" and filled up when it was "only" $3.38 instead of the $3.56 it is today. I shudder to think of what the prices might be come August.

Kimberley said...

I'm so lucky! I usually spend $50 filling my tank...a 2000 Sienna...BUT...where I live, we can go anywhere in the city on a golf cart, a battery operated golf cart, that is! I take the kids to school, go to the grocery, to Chick-fil-A for lunch...anywhere in the city! 90 miles of cart paths and hundreds of carts everywhere!

Remember when having a minivan meant fuel efficiency? Yeah, not so much anymore. Gas is $3.49 here. It was around $55 fo my last fill-up. Yeesh!

p.s. Oh how I love Tears For Fears...

Lula! said...

Well, yeesh again...no red ink on my comment, please. I meant "for," not fo. I'm not getting all Snoop Dogg on ya here. Fo Shizzle!

Hi Debbie. Thanks for wishing me well. I'm all plugged up, but I'm pretty sure it's not allergies. I've lived in "The Pollen Valley" for years ~ The Willamette Valley in Oregon, and this is the first time.

Well I filled the BMW and it was $45 @ 3.49 a gallon. I filled my Ford Excursion with diesel @ $4.26 per gallon and it was $170 "Gulp."

We don't drive the truck nearly as much. We live on 80 acres, and far from town, so we are really feeling the crunch. God is good though and we are paying our bills. I'm thankful for that. Hugs, Kathi

Kelly said...

Oh I stop at $50!!! I am afraid the thing will keep going and going and going and going and going!!!!!!! lol

Heather said...

I think mine was around 45$ for my minivan. Not too terrible, but still terrible enough. Ugh...

My 2002 Camary took $30.00 @ Costco.
Everytime we're cramped as a family of 4, i remind myself of gas prices, and somehow it's okay to be cramped together.
Anyhow I can reach the baby in the carseat w/ this car.( I was also refered to as E.T arms in school)
But, it works for me, ***lol***
Now, you'll always be looking at my arms, ha-ha.

Sniz said...

Oh, it always costs more than 50.00 now. And it makes me so mad. It's the worst kind of anger because there is absolutely no one that you can express your absolute rage to adequately because we are all in the same sinking ship. the only answer is to stop driving. Yeah, right.

Well thanks to our current president I payed over $70.00 for my mini van at costco. Thank goodness that we live in a community that uses electric golf carts. So no cars on the weekends. I think at this point the gas companies have us between a rock and a hard place. We keep paying so it will keep going up.

Evi said...

This should make you feel better...here in Canada (where we ooze the natural resources for gasoline-second in the world in fact next to Saudi Arabia) we are paying $1.17/Litre
(their are four in a gallon)...so you are getting a better deal than we are. I can easily get $120+ into my Ford Windstar regularly.

Zach and Julie Anderson said...

Well, I live in Europe... and it regularly costs us over a $100 and I KNOW that our tanks & cars are smaller than the cars in the States. INSANE!!!!
It is getting worse in the states though....
