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.

The dealers(stealers?) around here are adding 3000.00 over retail on Prius', because they know they can.
yep they are..we had ours prior to the horrible gas spike..so we didn't pay extra..almost all the new hybrids have those stupid fees.

I feel your pain I drive a pos 1988 BMW(Big Money Waster) 2.7L gets me about 25mpg I still have to fill up twice a week at 40+ dollars each time. Now the car has a terrible misfire I've replaced a bunch of things I think I have a burnt valve... So pretty soon I will be looking for another gas saver... Probably a VW TDI they get 45+mpg... Whenever I can afford one that is. Might have to ride a bike 42 miles to work each way for a while here :lol:
