It's not that high here, but it does have that tendency to just JUMP like 20-30 cents. At least diesel went down. Yeah, DOWN! Wooh! To $4.19....

When the economy crashes they'll get the point, oh wait they'll be out by then. I'm a die hard republican as far as values and views, but i'm about to vote Democrat just in spite of these oil tycoon repubs. They've done jack crap for the country lately, they dropped the ball on immigration, fuel, etc.

I think next month might be my last month for Cable TV. I'm going to probly cut that next. and this summer we'll be running the AC at 81 vs 79. big difference in FL. This economy will be feeling it.... just a matter of time. Tell you one thing, now is the time to buy a Tundra or F150 lol. Even GM's 2wd 20mpg 1500 had nobody looking at them this past saturday.

Where in Florida are you that regular that expensive? Most of the stations over here are averaging $3.23 for 87 octane.

try Charlotte County.... Port charlotte. I bet it's coming your way.... As for fast food... I've deffinately cut down. I've been taking my lunch with me. But hell, even food at the grocery store has gone up noticeably. Dang TV dinner is like $5 now. I'm only drinking Water, Beer and Sweet tea (w/out HFCS). Energy drinks are a rip. you can make coffee 100x's cheaper and as strong as you like. $4 for a 6oz can. GTFOH. the only energy drink I'll even touch is RedBull original. B/c it's actually one of the better ones, made in Europa, our american HFCS Sugar loaded wanabees suck. All they are is expensive soda. Every bit of $ saving helps, but cutting out montly bills of $60 really helps out.
