    What's everyone think about the cost of gas going up 4 cents over night?
    I put premium in my x and it usually takes $60 to fill up my truck but now its going to take around 65 or 70 and I am having to drive from GA to TX freaking awesome

    You're lucky, just add 30.00 to what you pay and it's what we pay up here. Gas when up 0.04/l in 2 days(x/3.78 for a gallon), We pay 1.17/litre for reg. That what happen when you let a bunch of camel jockey run the world

    no matter where you are gas prices going up sucks, but I love the threads that are all about 'how do you drive these trucks everyday' I always get a kick when garage queens come out for a drive and people get upset... like I said though no matter where you are when your used to paying a fee and for no 'real' reason it jumps like it did its a piss off!!

    The end is near my friends...soon we'll all be running from gangs of leatherbound maniacs, in armored vehicles covered in cow hides, with machine gun turrets. Fighting to the death over barrells of fuel and cans of dog food with Mel Gibson.

    When that happens its time to get a motorcycle for me and the wife is going to have to give up her hummer because filling both up with 94 is going to be outragous.

    You ain't seen nothing, yet. Gas is going up big in a few months. If I wasn't so lazy (didn't feel like doing the research), I would have sold my stock and bought oil company stock. If I didn't have some large bills coming up, I would still buy oil company stocks, right now. I believe that 5/gallon is inevitable by the end of the year, maybe more.

    This middle east thing is bad, and it is going to get worse. Still I need to sell one of my vehicles to help pay my bills, either the Toyota Camry Hybrid or the X-runner. The smart move would be to sell the X-runner but I never thought I was smart. It is so bad over there that they are pulling my civilian friends out of there; that tells me it is going to get real bad.
