I stopped to fill up my car tonight about 9:30 pm. The clerk told me to be sure and fill it full as the price was going up at midnight. And will probably be $4 a gallon in a few weeks. :-(

Looks like I will be making less trips to buy fabric. :-)

With the unrest in Libya, following what happened Egypt, it is inevitable, and it will effect all aspects of our lives.

And, of course, those that can buy stock in oil will probably do well.

I filled up at 11 a.m for $3.12. and on my way to work at 2 p.m. it was $3.25. It doesn't take long to go up.

I'm glad the people of these countries know it's worth standing up for their rights to live free and have the courage to know they have the power to do so in sheer numbers. The Chinese are wising up fast about getting higher pay for the labor jobs that they use to do for pennies. Dictators and corrupt leaders can't keep knowledge away from the people like they could before. Everyone deserves the opportunity to have choices to better themselves.

When we are thinking when it's time to trade in my Dodge pickup, we may get a car or an SUV that is better on gas. I am not thrilled about paying 100 bucks again to fill up my truck.

Thanks for sharing your total. My daughter just bought a Tahoe. Now I know why she puts gas in every 3 days or so. She cant afford to fill the whole tank at a time!
