I have filled up both of our cars in the last couple of days and paid close to $80.00. (The civic's tank was half full too!) Canadian Saver disciplines herself to not drive a certain number of days during the month. And she does a fabulous job! I need to figure out how to do that too. Gas prices are just too expensive. But it's more than that. I don't want to add to the oil company's profit line. How can they have billions of dollars in profit and insist that they must charge us more??
My husband's car is the civic hybrid and he gets at least 45 miles to the gallon. Not bad. But then there is my car, which is a Honda Pilot. It cost me over $50.00 to fill up and it lasts me about 10 days. It used to cost $36.00 to fill up, and not too long ago. At this point we are able to absorb these prices. We will adjust our budget in other categories. But starting now, I will vow to drive less. My goal for March is to have 5 no drive days. Wish me luck!
