How true! I fill up once a month now because the cost of gas is so high. I'm lucky I don't have to work, and retired at the time gas began to go up in price.Otherwise, I'd be paying more for gas (traveling 45 miles to and from work daily) to go to work than I made.

I'm amazed at how much the price of gas has cut into my budget. I'm lucky that I can work from home and I've been revamping one of my websites to help people save on gas.

I can't imagine what it is going to cost us to drive down from NH to KY for my Mom's 93rd Birthday!!!
