My Apologies for any bad grammar you may run into...and not make sense

I'm surprised there haven't been riots It's gone up $0.40 in the past like 3 weeks, and every week it goes up about $0.07 or so.

Right now in my area the cheapest you can find is $4.53 and thats at costco. Everywhere else it's like $4.59 - 4.70

I now spend about $350 on gas every month where as about 3 months ago I would only spend $220 on average! I don't know how that works, it's not like gas prices have doubled, but I still pay like twice as much.

Um ya, so whats it in your area?

Sad thing is my area has HORRIBLE public transportation, it will take 2 hours to get to places that take 20-30minutes driving, seriously wtf and they charge about $150 for a monthly pass? My old place had great public transportation I never drove, but the job market there was horrible that we had to move, figures the most expensive places have the jobs, but cheapest schools?

Here I pay 1/7 for school tuition of what I used to, which is another reason why we moved here, but then again all that gas makes it like the same tuition, because again I always used to take public transportation, oh and did I mention the transportation was FREE! Ya, didnt have to pay anything to go anywhere, so whats with different places having sucky transportation and high gas prices, and ya

I'm broke o_o I'm trying to get a job right down the street, thats right I'm being forced to get a new job because of gas prices, unless I want to keep spending 1/3 of my paycheck on GAS, 1/3 isn't that much but when you realize you could use that money for yourself rather then giving it to greedy damn oil companies, it makes you wonder, what kind of thieves are they...lol

I think it depends on the area that you live in. If you live in a country far away from any oil resoruces, of course it will be expenisive because it will have imports charges and so on. But if you live in a country that provides oil for different other nations, then the oil will be pretty cheap. Also, some oil companies charge their costumers with tax in their oil price. But, having really expenisive oil prices is crap. I've been to places where it is sold in that rate. =(
