    Default $4 a gallon gas

    I do believe that it will happen this summer. However, I also heard

    on on of the financial cable shows that it will likely be short

    lived, sort of a wake up call, they said.



    I too have a 32 mile 45-50 minute commute every day with no bus

    option. The hardest thing for me is waiting at all of the stoplights.

    I think there are about 35 of them. There is about a 10 mile stretch

    without any. When the traffic flows I find that I can keep up with

    the green lights by keeping VERY close to the posted speed.



    We now have implimented a couple of things that make our single

    errand day work. In addition to making sure that prescriptons are

    ready, we order books at the library where they are waiting on a

    shellf for us. We reserve the videos at the rental store...once again

    a fast pick up. I have been seriously considering the grocery

    delivery service that is offered by most of the store near by as well.

    I am now down to grocery shopping only once a week and I am working

    to every other week. Maybe I can get all errands on every other week.

    Shopping with the need and desperatly need lists helps a lot.



    Another time and gas saver has also been a lifesaver. I have been at

    a store wanting to buy three of something because it was buy two get

    one free but there were not three in my size. I found that Reebok

    will find it in another store and ship it to you...FREE. I has that

    done in another store for some Bras. It never hurts to ask for that


    option. I usually pay at the store and get the free shipping option.

    It is great if you can wait a little for something.



    Have a great one.

    what no one is thinking or talking about is the price of diesel. EVERY single

    thing we buy in this country is hauled on semis at some point in time....and

    diesel is averaging 30-60 cents per gallon higher. My hubby is a truck driver,

    and this time last year he was averaging $1000 a week in fuel, now it's almost

    $2000 a week....glad I don't pay that. BUT it's driving out costs of purchasing

    stuff up.
