I am so tired of this....(A rant by me)

I'm so annoyed with gas prices lately!!! A gallon of gas has gone up 15 cents this week alone!! It's so ridiculous! I went by a gas station the other day on my way to lunch and it was $3.09 a gallon. When I went by again a few hours later it was $3.19! It had gone up 10 cents in that short amount of time! It infuriates me to no end! Then today I went to the post office to mail a package and and to get a book of stamps. Well the postal worker told me that the price of stamps is going up on Monday! GRRRR! Anyway so she asked if I would like the current stamps or the new ones..uhhh hello?? I felt like saying,"Sure I'll take the old ones and come get the new ones on Monday!" *rolleyes* She gave me the forever stamp which has no price on it and it was $8 for the book. I remember when a book of stamps was around $4 to $5. Anyway I'm just sick of high prices! Ok,I'm done now. ;-)

I'd feel bad for you, but gas is $3.50 or more here...LOL No really though, I feel your pain! Prices are getting insane. I bought boneless skinless chicken tonight - $3.99 a pound!! What?!?! Whatever happened to the $1.79 a lb sales?! Kev's work (he works in the oilfield industry) just gave him a raise and we're like "THANKS! Now we can afford for Kevin to drive to work everyday!" LOL

Oh man, I have hated watching the prices jump 10 cents a day on gas. We have three gas stations down the street, all on the corners of the same intersection, and they usually have about the same prices ... but one day I guess they couldn't change the signs fast enough or something and people would be lined up at the still-cheap gas station.

Hopefully it settles down soon; this is just crazy!

I hear you. For the cheap stuff here, it's $3.03 and I have to buy midgrade for my van so I paid $3.08 and that was with my discount. I paid $40 today to fill up my just less than half full tank of gas. Ugh. I'm going to have to learn to walk everywhere because supposedly come this summer, gas will be up over $4. It's insane.

It costs about $65 to fill up my van and a few months ago it was only $45 with a smith's coupon. Lately I've been going to Costco to get gas though. I shouldn't complain much because Adam drives a company truck so we only have to pay for gas for 1 vehicle. *sigh*

I hear ya! I hate it too! Everyday the gas prices go up here too and I'm more than a little annoyed that stamps went up again. Grr!
