The highest I've seen in my part of California is $4.49! When I saw that I was like, "WTF BBQ?"

Gas prices here are running around 3.43 to 3.54 a gallon.

I have had people tell me to trade my car in for a new one. I just say 'Hogwash' I would need a car payment of no more than $68.00 a month to break even by trading my car, it will never happen. There is no savings for me to trade mine in for a newer car.

Just the other day someone joked that I had Mussel Car, I said no it is not a mussel car just a gas-aholic.
