It's a Gas Gas Gas

[gas price board] When I got home from work last Friday night, my wife complained that we never go out, and that I should take her somewhere expensive.
I took her to a gas station.

Yeah, it's painful for all your big truck and SUV lovers out there (as if you ever worried about us being able to see around you, or your headlights directly into our rear view mirrors), but frankly, you still have it pretty cheap compared to the rest of the world. Why do you think Europeans ride those motorscooters?

Track your local prices.

My hybrid and I are having a good time. Two round trips from the house to CK's and it still hasn't registered a drop in gas.

Thank goodness that's the vehicle we're about to drive halfway across the country. Otherwise the trip would make us go bankrupt.

I still hope for a spike in gas prices to $10 per gallon that kills off SUVs forever. Unfortunately I have recently found out what this does to truck drivers and cab drivers, and I've had second thoughts. Funny quote, though!

I lucked out and found a fellow employee that lives literally 2000 feet from me so we now carpool. It's going to be nice to literally cut my driving in half.

By the way, I should also point out that this isn't a real pic. I've seen several other photoshopped versions of this. The best was:

Regular LOL
Plus OMG
Premium WTF

Reasonably obvious Photoshop job too. Theres a few variations out there.

As for carpooling, it seems you have a job with bog-standard hours. I had an employee from the new company living about 40 yards from my place, but couldn't consider the carpool because (a) the hours go as long as it takes, (b) What if I want to meet smeone for after-work drinkies? and (c) didn't know him well enough to want to spend an extra hour in the car with himeach day... a little too talkative for my post-workday likes.

Lucky really, cause he got let go about 2 weeks ago.
