Even with a four-cylinder!

Have you been to the gas station lately? What do you drive?

I drive an ’04 Jetta, and it has the basic 2.0 litre, 4 cylinder engine. I have a stick-shift. I once drove 406 miles with the AC blasting on one 12.5 gallon tank of gas before the gas light came on (and that would’ve let me drive another 60 miles, according to the owner’s manual).

But do you know how much it would cost me to fill my gas tank now?

Try about 40 bucks, roughly – that depends on where I fill up.

Gas prices went up TWENTY CENTS this afternoon alone here in the R-I-C, and even us folks with efficient engines are feelin’ it. I genuinely feel bad for peeps I know sportin’ 8 cylinders…My parents, my lil’ bro, my older bro…sheesh. This is going to put a little financial hurting on everyone who drives.

I know this is all because of the Gulf situation, and I know people have it worse than I do. I know that it would cost me twice as much to fill up in the UK. I’m just venting. The US seriously needs to get off of this petroleum fix.

  1. Dear Danny,Mom told me about your website. I love it! It confirms what I’ve thought about you for the longest time——————– YOU ARE A GENIUS!Love you, Jammie

  2. Ah, and one more note, gas prices are going back down. The raise in price was the market’s answer to temporarily stymie the amount of gas being purchased, thereby causing a gas crisis like that of the 1970s. Another catalyst to this fact was the national panic causing people to rush all at once to fill up their vehicles. Prices have already gone down and will continue to do so. We won’t see them below $2, but they will at least go down to the pre-hurricane prices of around $2.15 or close to that.
