on the price of gas

gas here is $3.52/gallon. given that, i normally put in 12.5 gallons when i fill up, which puts me at $45 to fill up my car. i probably don’t need to tell you how annoying that is.
especially since all i do is drive to work and the grocery store and target around town, and i fill up every two weeks and still spend $90/month on gas, not to mention the equal amount nate puts in his car. i can’t imagine having to commute farther than 30 miles a day with gas the price it is. here’s the thing: it’s hurting me, and i don’t do any unnecessary driving. i don’t go to the cities twice a month like i used to. i don’t drive to fargo every other month like i used to. i haven’t been to new london since easter, and before that was jane’s bday. what do people who need to travel do??
it’s a necessary evil. i have to get gas to go to work to make money so i can buy the gas to go to work and make money. if i worked a normal shift, i would buy a bus pass for $35/month and use that to get to work, but since i finish at 10 p.m.e there’s a need for alternative fuel – not just for keeping the planet healthy, but because we’re going to run out! sadly, many of those who don’t care about the price of gas are most likely republican, and many republicans can’t look beyond their wallet and their god.
