How much are you payin'?

The kids and I are back from our travels and I must say that we did have a nice trip.
We got to see the newest family member, Ava, who was born in March. (She's a cutie.)
We saw her Papa, Uncle Bookie, who just came home from the hospital and we got to help my niece, Alex, celebrate her 13th birthday.
Overall, it was a very relaxing trip back to my hometown.
Now for the downer......I had to pay $3.88 for a gallon of gas to do it!
I just hate this. I guess I could consider that a bargain since I did see some prices up to $3.94, but come on. It's crazy!!!
So, tell much are you payin'?

seriously...I can't even look at the price anymore. It makes me sick to my stomach. Do you remember when it was 99 cents a gallon??!! I used to be able to fill my little car up for 13 bucks!

Glad you had a great trip!

Glad you had a nice time back home!
The gas prices are a downer for sure!
I paid $3.95p/gal. when I filled up on Friday...yikes!
I drove to Smithfield for a little shopping today and found it for $3.87 on the way home. Pathetic!
The gas prices are definitely going to put a damper on my summer plans!

Believe it or not...we were excited to find it at...drum roll please..."Oh look, its only $4.08 here!" "Here" being in the greater Detroit area where we were visiting. How pathetic is that?

OMG I am moving south!! That's a steal compared to my $4.07 for regular!! The state of NY is crazy high though. Like top 3 I think. How special really! I remember driving through Chicago in 2000 and it was $3 and I was falling over thinking that was so crazy high. Those were the days I guess!!

$3.94 here in So. Indiana, sigh! The good news is my grocery store runs bonus buys where you get gas savings at their pumps. I usually get about a 15 cents break per gallon coupon each time I shop. Last week I saved 23 cents a gallon. Wahooo!

Hi! Found you through Rachael. We're paying $4.20/gallon. Sigh......
