3.00, salute

its here everywhere now  in texas
texas is known for its oil production and cheap prices for gas
not any more
the price has hit $3.00+ and seems to be climbing
the $3.00 mark is a mental mark here in texas
most people didnt think it would ever hit here
but it did

lets see reasons given are
the middle east unrest
oil shale oil is backed up way up north as there is not enough
pipeline to get it down here to the refineries
the oil being used is an expensive oil from ?north sea and is $20
more a gallon

the end result is that we are all paying more each time we fill
up our tank-if we can afford it

i know those elsewhere say dont whine weve been there a long time
in los angeles there is already $4.00 a gallon gas and one major
oil company leader is predicting $5.00 a gallon gas by this summer

glad have my two vehicles that get 40 miles per gallon
guess ill just coast down the hills from here and town
and drive real slow or you can
use cruise control on long straight aways as it keeps a steady
speed which saves gas
keep your car tuned up well
car pool
ride the bus or train
ride bike
plan trips to do multiple tasks
dont gun the motor it may cost your $0.50 each time you do it (hahaha)
ease into start up
try going the speed limit (also will save on speeding tickets)
keep the tire pressures normal
or dont go if dont need to

as the price gets higher then the more little things you do can save money

my wife she commutes about 60 miles a day for 20 days a month
at 40 miles a gallon thats 30 gallons of gas a month
at $3.00 thats $90
at $4.00 thats $120
at $5.00 thats $150

at 30 miles a gallon thats 40 gallons of gas a month
at $3.00 thats $120
at $4.00 thats $160
at $5.00 thats $200

if buying a new car or used ones (the financially smart thing to do is
a used one ) would recommend that you look close at the miles per
gallon the new vehicle gets

dont think things will get better
the price of freedom

salute to the local girls basketball vrhs for making it to the
finals of the regional tournament
good luck
win today and its to the big dance for the state tournament
good job

    when my wife she and i were commuting together
    always said we were getting 80 miles per gallon instead of 40 miles per gallon
