fed up parkin it

thats it man. i saw $4.89/gal today. i know some of you other states are more but enough is enough. this is bullsh!t. im lookin and buyin a nissan maxima and parkin the stroke. will only take it out on ocassions. makes me soooo mad when we cant drive our nice strokes cause of these dam fuel prices. now were being forced into drivin hoopties. what really pisses me off is people are still travelin for the holiday. guess some people still dont care and like payin out there azz for fuel just to have fun for the weekend. thats probably why prices arent comin down cause they know some people dont care to pay it.
