Up, up, and away

Gas Price Record New record for filling up my X3: $70.87! Prices have been climbing all month, and at this station was at $4.24/gallon (for 91 octane) on this night. Economists are predicting prices will continue to climb into the Summer; I wonder if we’ll see $5/gallon?

I actually hope gas prices double. The roads are too crowded as it is, we should put some pressure on people to drive less. Need to make people think twice about living 30+ miles away from their work.

fyi, my commute is 3.2 miles each way, which means I go through a tank of gas about once every ten weeks (assuming work commute only) — or about $7/wk in commuting gas.
