Shocking!

I drove by the gas station on my way to work and noticed the price of gas. Now, not long ago I was noticing it too, but not in a good way. It is $1.47 a gallon here!! I really didn't know if we would see the day it would go under $3 again. It is so nice to fill up the little car for $15. What are gas prices where you are?

Wow, I'm jealous! We are (gladly) paying $1.87.

The last time I went to get gas, I gave them my debit card and told them to put $50 in. I was shocked when they brought it back and said it only cost $35- what a nice surprise! It was running us around $60 fill up our van just a month ago.

1.73 here and the lowest I saw was 1.59 up in North Dakota. :) It's awesome, isn't it?

Well now i was going to say gas was 1.99 here but since mykidsmom lives down the road 2 miles from me I suppose my gas costs the same as hers. Lol I think she probably has the right price because I dont pay much attention.

Hi, Missy! Isn't it nice to see the prices going down? And you know what? I don't want to hear all the talking heads say it's a bad thing. I DON'T CARE =) I can fill up my van for ~$35...that's GREAT! It's $1.76 in Baraga and L'Anse and a bit cheaper at Walmart in Houghton. Funny though that Marquette hadn't dropped under $2 still as of last Thursday. I guess it's the supplier there...??? And although there are townsfolk trying to do something about it, as long as it's city-wide the city gov'ment says they can't do anything about it. Oh well. Gas is cheap here. I'm happy. =)

Hi Missy. I keep checking here for a new post;) I don't want to pester you because I know you're super busy, but on the other hand I'm wondering how things are going. So even a post like "Yes, I'm still alive and kicking" will work:)

And don't be shy if you drop by my blog. I love it when people just say "Hi!"

Anyway, just wanted you to know I was thinking about you.

Sorry Mykidsmom, I have been so busy :( I have been reading my favorite blogs but not doing much with mine. All is well here though. Thanks for thinking about me :)
