Last night, as I was driving home (or should I say this morning) at 2:00 am, my gas gauge was on Empty the whole trip for about 24 miles. There was a Racetrack gas station open that I drove by just three miles from home, but I was too tired to stop and I just prayed that my car would have enough fuel to get me all the way. Prayer answered. This afternoon, I went to fill up and it cost me over $40 for a full tank of regular. The prices in my area have increased over 12 cents per gallon in the last week to an average of around $2.62 /gal. As I look back in Quicken at my monthly expenses, it's been two years since gas prices were this high.
Well rested and full, I'm now getting ready to go back to work.
