Stopped on my way to work today to fill up on diesel, it was $3.12 per gallon. It was $2.81 last Monday. 31 cents increase in 7 days? ughhhh.

I think we were around $2.80 last week, but that was at Costco. Things are not going to be pretty if we're all over $3.00 during the winter.

FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
This is the perfect weather time of year in the south. 70's during the day - 50's at night. no need for ac or heat. More rain, however, would be nice.

True, but it's a bit easier to pay the higher gas prices when you have a lower power bill.

I heard on the radio this morning that oil was over $93 dollars a barrel. Gasoline is going to just keep getting more expensive. A Hybrid car sounds more appealing all the time.
