Have you written a blog post about the crazy gas prices? What did you say?

Since this is the Fourth of July weekend and the price of a gallon of gas is almost $5 in some areas we decided we should all commiserate together.

What have you said about the gas prices on your blog? Share the link to your post.

I haven't blogged about the gas prices. But I will say that www.gasbuddy.com is my friend! I try to check before heading out.
also my grocery store is selling gas with a 10cent per gallon discount if you spend over $100 on groceries.

The poor guy ahead of me at the gas pump got sticker shock the other day...he didn't have a grocery loyalty card for this store, but did for a different store. It makes quite a difference!
Hi. I posted about our 1600 mile trip last week to Northern California in our gross polluter (SUV). I cant even stomach typing how much our gas bill was. But, as I mention in my post, (http://www.apronstringsaflutter.com/?p=117) we weren't going to let it stop us. It had been too long since I had been "home". It was a great trip. A little painful at the pump, but a great trip.
In response to my frustration with our dependence on gas and being cornered by these prices, I posted my suggestion for an alternative fuel source. Its allll about getting fast food joints in on the game. "My French Fry Fuel Fix" can be found here: http://morningsidemom.wordpress.com/2008/06/12/my-french-fry-fuel-fix/
I've not blogged about it on any of my specific blogs, but I have posted something about it on a marketing blog I contribute to. It's not much, but is gives a blurb on how consumers are going to more generic / store brands due to the expense at the pumps.

I have here...and here.

I also mention gas prices here.

You can't 'live in California and not blog about gas prices...it's just too prevalent to ignore.

Oh, yeah...here too.

Here.

Geez Louise...here too.

Here.

Here.

So I guess I write a lot about gas prices. Sheesh. Maybe I should stop driving and just walk!
I dont blog about them specifically but they were mentioned in one of my posts here http://www.notjustamama.com/2008/05/woe-is-me-and-matthew/
I refuse to give the gas prices any more attention, WHY? because it makes no difference. I did post about hypermiling, because it's a great idea. All in all though, i'm so disguted with the economy as it is that blogging about it would likely make me depressed lol.

I paid $4.60 for milk last night. it's short of highway robbery i tell ya.
Gas prices in California are outrageous:

I did this just today!! I found sort of a funny picture and just had to share it. It's funny but it's not. It's sad the direction that we're headed right now. Anyway, I tried to make light of it with my picture I posted today. It can be viewed at http://armyfamilyok.wordpress.com/2008/07/21/signs-of-the-times/ and let me know what you think about the sign!!
