Increase in gas prices today

January 3rd, 2011 at 07:22 pm

This morning I noticed gas was $2.82/gallon. We went about our errands and on our way back the price had went up to 2.87/gallon. We stopped by Costco to fill up and it was still 2.75/gallon.Smile

A news reporter mentioned that gas would be up to 4.00/gallon by this summer. I am not sure where we are going to find money in our budget for these increases. We have to drive to work, school, etc. and we can only combine so many errands to save on gas. I know that in other parts of the country gas is even higher than this and in other countries it is very expensive and sold by the litre.

I can't seem to clip enough coupons to keep up with inflation. How about you? Do you try to adjust your budget so compensate for higher prices?

Today's food (we ate out because we has several appointments to go to today): A local restaurant is having $1.00 BBQ pulled pork sandwiches every Monday this month. We bought 6 of them for our lunch. The meat was so tender. I cannot buy the ingredients and make sandwiches for that price.

    Gas prices in our area are now running anywhere from $3.07 to $3.13. I am not happy about it either, especially since my dd2 has soccer practice 4 nights a week...

    I paid $3.28 the other day. Love those California taxes! :P

    I would buy some pulled pork sandwiches for $1 each too. Yum!

    We're at 3.04/gallon. At the end of the month I need to commute to university again, 3 days a week, so I'm not looking forward to the increased gas prices.

    I'm in Delaware and gas prices are around $3.12. I found 1 station at $3.04 yesterday & filled up. Its only going to get worse

    Yum! Texas BBQ!
    I bought gas last week for $3.09 at Costco, I'm in CA.

    Well, gas is still more expensive where I live right now (SE Europe) because they sell it by the liter, but it's pretty disheartening to see the prices climbing again in the US. I keep hoping that this will lead to broader-based use of alternative fuels, but there hasn't been political will on that -- which is the only insurance of making it happen. Ugh.
