my opinion would be that I was used to paying what I was paying (around $3.75/gal). I was even complaining about the $0.20 increase that happened in
between the times I bought gas. It used to be ridiculous for gas to fluctuate even $0.05 now and then. (Not to mention the fact that when I bought my
first car gas prices in my area were $1.65/gal - and I have a picture of that back home) Now instead of $0.20 more I will be paying at least
$1.25 more per gallon! My tank can hold 12 gallons. So last week I was paying around $45 at the pump and this week I can expect to throw away upwards
of $60. I also have to make it known that when going to work it is almost a 30 minute drive to and from, and I work 4-5 days each week. Then there is
the fact that I am a college student and have to drive to and from classes - at least a 15 minute trip to and from. And, since I am a student I am
only working part time for a little more than my state's minimum wage.
not funny but for some reason I'm laughing...
My opinion is that based on the amount of gas I use and the amount of money that I make I will be nervous about paying my bills this month.
My opinion is that I feel violated - its not fair that I need
to buy this gas because there is no other option, and that I have to pay whatever
they tell me to pay - yet they aren't increasing my paycheck or lowering my tuition costs to make up for it.
Question to all the non- "yanks" out there:
How long does it take you to get to and from your obligatory destinations? How much gas do you think you use? And lastly, what is your minimum
Not trying to offend anyone, I'm just a little upset. You may say that your price is more, but you would be upset if they jacked it up 30-40% higher
than what you are paying.
