pissed How bad are you getting screwed?

Gas prices are going up, so how bad are prices were you are?

For San Francisco, the price this morning was $4.04 for 87 octane. I get double screwed because I have 2 trucks I have to fill up the start of every week.

Went from $3.09 to $3.49 here. As soon as it gets to $3.0 anything I think they panic at Opec and raise it $0.50 just so they can sleep at night.

Paid $3.49 for 87 here in Vegas yesterday. Was $3.39 at the same station a week ago. They are predicting gas to top out between $4 and $4.25 a gallon by April here in Vegas. Looks like no big driving trips for me this summer...

95 octane is about 1.38 per litre / 5.52 a gallon (US, gal) or $8.56. There's countries that pay more and some that pay less. There's nothing ,I can do about it , so why worry. Just my theory. Can't change it , live with it. This is from a guy that is gunna use 200 worth of diesel , just to get me to the track ,then spend 40 of petrol to race 2 hours over 2 days. Is it worth it , Hell yeah ! Maybe this just me enjoying myself !

Thank you president Barack Hussein. Before you were ever elected you threatened to strangle us with high gas prices to force us to buy hybirds, and you said you would bankrupt the coal industry even though we have coal coming out our ears. Thank you for shutting down the keystone pipeline so the Canadians sell oil to the Chinese and we buy from your brethren in the Mideast. Thank you sir for helping to ruin our beloved country, the country you and your lovely bride have never been proud of before you were elected, just as you said you would do. At least on that you were a man of your word.

This doesnt pertain to gas, but it does affect our wallets.
