Thank you for all your comments on yesterday's post.
This real-life tragedy still continues to bother me and I hope
that by helping to spread the word this injustice will
soon be overturned.
Now, on to this week's Tuesday's Question...
"How much is a gallon of gasoline in your community?"
"Has it begun to affect your life?"
A gallon of gasoline where we live in PA is $3.69 as of yesterday.
YES, it is affecting our life!
We have 3 cars in this family.
BUT all 3 cars are OLD and over 100,000 miles.
The car Olivia drives is a 2001 Ford Focus and has close to 180,000 miles.
It's a station wagon and GOLD.
She and her friends call it The Twinkie.
We're thankful that our cars run great and still look pretty good.
However, filling up all 3 cars is becoming very costly.
I'm thankful Olivia is down in Florida attending college
and her car sits in our driveway although
the Colonel does drive The Twinkie a few times a week to keep it running.
Filling up all 3 cars ONCE a week can run us close to $150 - $200...
It's a good thing I don't need to go out every day.
I try to stay home as much as I can and do all my errands/shopping
only once a week or have the Colonel stop and pick up something
for me from the grocery store since he is out every day.
Give me an idea of how much a gallon of gasoline is in your hometown.
Let me know if it's affecting your life and what are some things you're doing
to help offset the costs.
On the menu at our house tonight:
Tossed salad with Italian dressing
Enjoy your day!
And, yes, I'm feeling much better.
