I retired to the country and now only make 1 or 2 trips to town for supplies weekly. Little to no "joy riding".

I myself commute 30 miles one way and have to drop a member of my wolf-pack into the local town for school 8 extra miles one way. Been contemplating when to car-pool - used to be when gas here was $3.40, has not happenned yet cause I enjoy my independence of leaving when I want to.

gas prices are expected to increase another $00.50 in the coming weeks.

I need to change.

what you dont yet understand because you are not awake, is that very soon you will not need to be where you think you need to be. the only place you will need to be is home. or perhaps you will need to be a type of nomad. none of which will require fast movement. native americans didnt "need" to go anywhere fast. when they did travel it would have been on a horse.

I'll take fewer trips to the range and start riding my bike more.

Once the war kicks off, gas could go to $7-10 a gallon or more. Hard to say how big the war gets.

Re: Gasoline Prices going sky-high - how or when will you be impacted?
The other day I had to go out to an appointment with my son and told him to keep his eyes peeled for the cheapest gas down a three mile stretch of road. Turns out the cheapest was about where we started watching (3.79).

After the appointment we headed up to the cheap gas station and they had raised the prices three cents a gallon during the hour. When I asked the clerk about it she said they only raise rates in the mornings, I said not likely as we were just there an hour ago and gas was 3 cents less...she tried to change the focus to rising gas prices in general but I caught them raising prices mid-day, just prior to rush hour traffic.

I realize they can do what they want to do but to claim one thing and do another? par for the course in our history I guess. I wish I could ride a horse, our civilization isn't quite built for that these days.

If its solely in gasoline prices it could be 100 a gallon before it impacts me , I use less than 60 gallons a year as it is.

I suspect long before then the upward pressure on the prices of everything else from school bussing to trips downtown will collapse the system. It is of course in a flat spin right now.

I pay more for gas so I buy less stuff , I buy less stuff so less diesel gets used to deliver it, less diesel gets used and that means less gasoline, less gasoline means a relentless march up in gas prices , which means I buy less stuff so less diesel gets used so less gas gets manufactured .

LOL wake up sheepy sheepies you are fucked and don't even see it coming.

It will not matter one iota how close you live too work if your company shits you out on the sidewalk. Or your boss boots you off the sled so his child can get private trombone lessons and have the lastest Itoys.

I know more and more who are carpooling with a person who drives a small car and letting their vans or SUVs sit unused.

The going rate is paying the person 10-15 dollars a week to ride which is a lot cheaper than filling up their van or SUV

Re: Gasoline Prices going sky-high - how or when will you be impacted?
We saw the writing on the wall five years ago and bit the bullet costwise to buy a Prius. Still love that car, and the higher than normal seats in the front are a plus for a senior. Our Camry's seats were getting to the I need to drop into them.

So, the gas prices for me aren't too bad. We also have a fuel efficient Corolla and a gas guzzler Ranger pickup. That's for when we need to buy hay, or other bulk items, and gets driven just enough to keep the engine in good shape. Last time we filled the pickup and filled a few gas cans the total came to $90.

Real sticker shock there!!!

We'll most likely keep on being careful with our trips outside of work (8.5 miles each way, 3 days a week for me) and church (17 miles each way twice a week). If it gets to $7 I think we'll rethink what church we attend, and my job at the library may wind up being a thing of the past, so I'll stay home a whole lot and garden and raise the chickies (who love to hide their eggs since they're free ranged). We found 8 eggs last night in an unusual spot behind the workshop, and got two delivered right by the front door in an unused planter.

Re: Gasoline Prices going sky-high - how or when will you be impacted?
My commute changes by the month. Right now it is 211 miles. Luckily the company pays my motel. But It still cost me about 70$ a week. I would get a better gas saver if I did not love my car to much. But 150-200 a week would really start to suck.

My wife and I both drive hybrids and have short (<5 miles) commutes. We don't care - spent less than $1000 on gasoline last year, and that was before I bought my hybrid.

We're already being impacted. Hubby has been unemployed for a little over 2 months. Our monthly income has been reduced by about $1,000 per month, unemployment just barely covers the bills.

Not really impacted yet, but I did invest in a scooter recently (doubles as my bug out vehicle for if SHTF). I figure if gas goes to $10.00 a gallon there will be only scooters and Obama / banker limousines on the road.

I have a suburban that costs over $100.00 a fill now. Thus, I try to fill when it gets down to half a tank each time now, one for prepping, two to fake myself out on what I pay for gas.

Re: Gasoline Prices going sky-high - how or when will you be impacted?
My husband works as a repair technician so he drives from one job to the next, all day long. He recieves a monthly, flat rate, gasoline allowance. This allowance has not been increased since 2003, so we are feeling the pinch. When we added up his monthy gas expenditure last month the total exceeded what our mortgage payment used to be. (Thank goodness the mortgage was paid off in 2010.)
