Go-Juice, Petrol, Fuel, Gas

No matter what you call it, gasoline is expensive and getting more so. There are a number of reasons for this. The link above references an NPR story on it. Pay attention to the bottom of the article where it says gas prices could increase by another dollar.

What slays me in all of this is seeing these hick yahoos who drive this oversized trucks and floor it. They pass me on the roads all the time. Where do these high school kids get their money?!? They've got to be filling these giant trucks up at least twice a week. Thinking they've got at least an 18 gallon tank on them, at 2.85 per gallon, that's $51 per fillup.

Me, I'm loving my Nissan Altima right now. And probably for a long time to come.

Not only do these idiot punks have huge gas guzzlers, but they are all 4 wheel drive gas guzzlers. Then on the weekends they go out and try to find mudholes to drive thru to enhance the possibility that they will tear something up on the truck and have to spend more than gas money on these behemoths.

I do remember in my younger days wanting a huge jacked up 4 wheel drive. That is until I had friends who were always working on theirs because something tore up while they were in 4 wheel drive. No spank you.

I will just stick with my crappy little Jeep that I never put into four wheel drive and just not drive anywhere.
