A Nice Surprise

Went out shopping today and had a nice surprise, gasoline has dropped to $2.98 a gallon.  That's less than a pound of hamburger meat.  In the 3+ years I've had my car I've only put a bit over 8,000 miles on it, which works out to about 2700 miles a year, so I don't use a lot of gas, but it's nice to see it getting so low---lol---I didn't think I'd ever have thought that $2.98 was cheap for gas.  When I was a teenager and first became aware of gas prices  it was about 19¢ a gallon and coincidentally hamburger was about the same price and now it's $3.82 a pound.

  5. Our petrol is way more per gallon than yours is, but I did notice that it had come down a couple of pence, but it is still a lot higher than it was, but so is everything else too! xx
