Unfortunately, and shoot me now cause I'd like to shoot myself, I drive the smaller of the Land Rovers (and John's new LR is due into the dealer in November-if this had been foreseen two months ago, it wouldn't have been ordered), and despite the fact that its getting 21+ miles to a gallon, I'm struggling like everyone else.

If I had to do it over again (last year) I would probably go Hybrid, but the Toyota Highlander and Ford 4WD models weren't out yet when I went car shopping.

Yes, there are days I wish I was back in North Jersey....despite the high cost of living, I enjoyed it. And there were much better ways there to commute than having to drive yourself.

Phoenix, when I worked in NY, I drove my car MAYBE once a week, on weekends for groceries. I took the train, bus, subway, taxi...ANYTHING to avoid the stress of driving. In a six month period, I kept track of my gas usage and mileage. I only filled my car up 5 times in those six months. And my commuting expense, monthly was around $325.00. I banked a ton of money in that period of time (2 years).

I've found that people can only relate to an idea which will force them into carpools or mass transit when it hits them in the pocketbook. Up here in VT, there is no public transportation to speak of, so I'm still stuck driving 45-60 miles a day!

I was talking to a couple from the UK and complaining about gas prices...wanna guess their response? "we've been paying $7 a gallon here for over three years...get over it!" Puts things in perspective a little....if someone from another country were to read this...and i wish they would....we probably sound like the biggest bunch of babies!

Since Monday the price has went from 2.89 a gal. to 3.36 a gal. That last price was at 5:00 PM tonight. They have been raising it by .20 to .30 cents a day. And changing it 2 or 3 times a day. With no end in sight. Luckily we both work about 2 mile from home. so we will start riding our bicycles to work soon. At least we will get in shape faster now. LOL

Actually Phoenix, that isn't a bad idea. Building the car pool lanes didn't work, maybe that would.

I can remember being in Seattle a few years ago. I had two people in the car with me, so I hit the HOV lanes - there was no one in the lane with me from Seatac all the way into the city, despite the fact that the other lanes were a parking lot at 9AM.

Seeing as I need gas to run the equipment for my business,thx but no thx! Already "hurting" from the high prices,don't need to be shut down for a week,also! Ever sit in a traffic jam and see only 1 person per car? Hundreds of cars? Ever hear of "carpool"? Maybe instead of a neighborhood watch,we could have neighborhood carpools with some kind of gas discount for incentive.
