It's killing me. Most of my job is traveling to a site to shoot, and I have an SUV because I have a crapload of equipment to cart around as well. I spent 25 bucks on a quarter of a tank of gas last week! It's ridiculous. And I am not exactly in a position to buy a new vehicle and get a hybrid or something.

Obviously, California has some real transportation issues and covers a lot more terrain than many other smaller states, but this has got to be affecting everyone to some degree.
New York is in the same boat. It cost me $73 to fill my vehicle this morning. If I'm lucky, I can last that a week.

We have a pool going on here.

I took $4.50 by 7/4. Winner gets $250...

I don't see how it will EVER go down, honestly. A lot of people (in the US) have no choice but to drive. They can be more economical about it, but it isn't going to change the price.


Oh, and that's a really kick-ass sig you got there. :)

Might have to change our lifestyles as well :gasp:


It's hard when there are few lifestyle changing options. For example, I can't afford to easily live near work, because the rent in that area is expensive. So I must commute. Further, I have to commute to class at night about three days a week. So, it can get tricky to cut back on fuel consumption.

If you substitute high fuel prices for higher rent, how does it compare?

Wait until a hurricane slams into the Gulf of Mexico the next few months..

You'll see prices hit $8 a gallon.

The world economy will fall.
