So here is a snippet from the news today - let me just say before I put their words in that this sticker shock INDEED curbed by lunchtime spending at Target today! I will indeed be trying to reduce my footprint on the earth by driving less!! (of course along with all of the other things like using less plastic bags, bottles, etc!)


Just makes me wish all the more that we lived in a more "foot friendly" area where you weren't so dependant on a car to get you from point A to point B all the time.

"Demand for gasoline is terrible," said Phil Flynn, an analyst at Alaron Trading Corp. in Chicago. Gas demand has fallen an average of 1 percent each of the last four weeks compared to the same period last year. "Demand should be rising this time of year."

Demand for gasoline has been falling for months as consumers reacted to a series of price records by driving less. The national average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gas rose 1.3 cents Wednesday to a record $3.399 a gallon, according to a survey of stations by AAA and the Oil Price Information Service. That's 53 cents higher than a year ago, and is expected to keep climbing along with futures prices and as the summer driving season draws near.
