Wordful Wednesday-Gas Prices to Make one {Gasp}

Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, only WITH words. It’s for those of us that can’t contain the chatter, but in a good way. More info. in my tabber box titled WW on the right. Thank you for playing along!

There are very few things that leave me wordless, but this is one of them.

I can’t wrap my brain around gas prices this high.

How much are you paying a gallon in your neck of the woods?

Don’t forget to hop on over to my co-host  Amanda’s place to see what she has to be Wordful about today. And, she’s hosting a “Sweet Photo Contest“.  I’m excited to be a judge and hope you enter!

    Wow! That’s just crazy. We’re at like $3.50 here.

    PS Mr. Linky keeps telling me I’m doing my math wrong and I can’t leave a link, so I’ll leave it here, which I hate doing: http://www.reallyareyouserious.com/2011/04/my-sassy-little-divas-and-me.html

    Ugh — I know — our gas prices are ridiculous too. Nearly $100 to fill my Suburban this weekend. (sigh)

    p.s. The linky totally confused me this week . . . lol, I think I need more sleep. I have no idea if I did it correctly.

    That’s one of the very few things I DON’T miss about living in Cali, our prices are at least a little less. I think they were $3.95 last time.

    The price of gas here is also very expensive $2.15/Litre. It’s crazy.

    Whoa. I think we paid around $3.50 on our road trip to FL. But I didn’t do the filling up….I prefer to live in ignorant bliss. That is until I see the bank account balance….haha!

    I’ve heard that it’s coming – but to actually see it… I haven’t been able to fully fill my tank up in months and rarely leave the house because we can’t afford the gas as it is. I wish we lived somewhere with better public transportation! 🙁

    That’s unbelievably nauseating! It’s about $3.40 here in south central Missouri, but I heard the average price per gallon back home in Hawaii is around $4.40. Crazy!!!

    Terra Heck says:

    As of earlier today, it was at $3.99 a gallon. Highway robbery!

    We’re at $3.57 but might get up to $5 this summer. It’s crazy!

    That is insanely high! We’re in Germany. Our gas prices are almost double the price in the U.S. Try $8.35 a gallon here. Yikes!

  22. 25

    My husband just filled up in Romania and it was $8 a gallon. $8! That kind of put things in perspective for me, right after I complained to him about passing $50 on my own fill-up here in the States.

    Unfortunately I have seen prices higher than that here in Hawaii….. $4.29 is the highest so far… Luckily we can at least get it on base where it’s closer to your price…

    It was 3.89 here yesterday and I was not happy. This is why I do not leave my house unless needed. It’s a conspiracy to make us all stay home, never leave and go crazy. Oh wait I was doing that before, the going crazy part but I will blame the gas prices so I have a legitimate excuse LOL. But really this is insane!

    We are all gasping at the gas prices (but I think Robin from Israel has it rougher!!). At least hanging with each other via blogging doesn’t cost gas $$.

    Holy gas pump, Batman! That’s insane! It’s only ~$3.79 here.

    In less than two weeks it’s gone from $3.69 to $3.89 to yesterday I saw $3.97. *sigh* Looks like it is time to start drive sharing again. Which is such a pain for me, because I have to drop my daughter off at daycare. But, one has got to do what one has got to do in order to save money.

  45. 48

    Yes, gas prices have me pretty wordless too but not because I wanna be, mostly because I can’t say the words that I think about it…..lol
