    Yes I use to drive around allot back in the late 90s and could fill my truck also a Nissan truck for $15. These high gas prices are a post 9/11 thing except a period in the 70s. Not to get into politics, but we are basiclly paying for growing nations like China to prevent a shortage. Remember those days because they are gone for good.

            I have a 12-ish gallon tank and on a good day I can get 34mpg. I haven't paid more than $40 to fill up... ever. Not even around here where gas is now $3.37 at the very cheapest. It went up this afternoon.

            However, upon doing taxes, we discovered that we were paying $2.43 a year ago. WTF!

                      My husband was in the phillipines a week or so ago and the gas prices out there were 85 cents LOL.

                      Out here in Guam and back in Cali it costs sometimes up to 65 bucks to fill up his Dodge Ram.

                        I'm hoping that gas prices will go back down soon. This is getting ridiculous.

                              Gas prices are ridiculous. I miss the days when I could just hop in the car and drive anywhere I wanted everyday all day long and fil up the car for less than $20 bucks. Now I pretty much stay in my little town,only go out if I have to,combine errands when possible,and try to stay home as much as possible. Which kinda sucks.
                              It's OK, next time I'll make you listen. I wish that it were in the power of all children to say that to their parents and to know that indeed they would be heard as we were in those wonderful days on Waltons Mountain.Narrator The Waltons (From the Runawa

                                  yeah when i was about 16 in 97 or 98 i could fill up my jeep with about 20 bucks. nowadays it costs me in excess of 70 bucks or so to fill up my truck. hell it costs me alomost 10 to fill up my push mower.

                                  yeah i fear that gas will never drop below 2.50 a gallon ever. and in my town is a huge oil refinery.

                                      It would be a dream if gas prices went down even a cent in my area it is 3.30 for a price of gas.

                                        I remember those days, My brother has put 45 dollars to fill up his Cadillac Deville. It costs my mom the same amount to fill up her Tundra and my dad who droves an escort causes around 30 dollars to fill him up. I wish the gas prices where down.
