so what sacrafices do u make?

ok so i was on my marry way today to the gas station, listinin to some britney spears, i pull into my destination an look at the sign an diesel went from 3.45 to 3.65, man was i cheesed , now i dont know about yall but im tired of maken sacrifices to pay for the rising price of fuel, its to the point now that when i go shoping , ive got think well do i need this or do i need a gallon of fuel.
so heres a few changes i have made to acomadate the price of fuel

1. instead of eatin at mcdonalds for lunch i now goto the locale homeless shelter an tell em i have a f250
2. i use to buy 1 ply toilet paper now i just steal it from the gas station
3. ive now resorted to sellin blood 5 times a week
4. i use to dispise hookers, now i myself have become one(im sorry mom)
5. i had 3 kids but i was recently forced to sell them to levis of china, just so i could pay my rent an get a half gallon of fuel
6. i use to have 2 testicals

these are just a few of the sacrifices ive had to make, an i just dont see it getin any better, im pretty sure its time we send washington a message, ive got 15 bags of dog poop ready to go if anyone wants to fund the drive from tx to the white house door steps

I am thinking of down grading our satellite service, just go to basic. Will probably start cutting back on how much we eat out. Consolidate trips, if I was closer to work and didn't have to ride thru a couple of bad areas I would seriously ride my bike.
We don't shop or buy a whole lot of unnecessary junk so not too much trimming to do there.

I've cut back how much I drive. Also drive it much easier. Other cut backs include not eating out as much, taking my lunch with me to work in a bag, already only have basic cable & internet can't cut much back there... Um. lets see... what else... in the process of taking the 4" lift kit off; that's a kick in the nuts. Overall.. just don't have as much money. I spend 25% of my income after taxes on Fuel.

On a similar side note... did ya'll see the new VW Diesel Hybrid!!?? 70mpg's out in Europe this summer. It's a Jetta diesel hybrid. I'm sure somehow it won't make it to the US b/c of some legal mumbo jumbo.

It's crossed my mind lately to sell the truck after only having it for less than 1yr. But I like/need a truck... and by the time I sell this one, and buy another one.. just to save $10/week in fuel... not worth it. I'd like a Diesel F150 Crew Cab FX4. But i'm sure the gov will kill it.

Don't we all wish that could be the case!

I like that 100mpg diesel motorcycle, that'd be a treat. At least for 6 months of the year lol

i have resorted to running farm fuel! its 50 cents cheaper but if i tow i will throw good fuel it! the gov is going to make the usa broke. hell ur tax return just goes to the oil companys any more but we need to have a smoke off at the white house all of the diesel forums get together and park in front of the white house and smoke them of 48 hours then they will sure lower the price i have also being down little work for people to get free fuel so it suxs!
