I am SO thankful gas prices have not yet reached highs like the ones seen above. Every time I fill my little car up with gas, I have to pick my jaw up off the ground when I see the receipt after filling my 11 gallon tank. We're at the $4 something mark in California, but after seeing that station's prices, I have to be grateful we aren't seeing those same insane numbers yet.
I used to fill my car for $17 - I'd pay $20 and have to go inside for change. Now, my receipts average $44 and there is no change. Just a straight debit from my bank account. Thankfully I don't drive a gas guzzling SUV in times like these!
And to think gas used to cost around $0.75 way back when...
