How much is gas in your hood?

Recommended Posts

Thankfully my employer is trying to help employees out- the company is kinda in the middle of nowhere. We sometimes get gas vouchers (we have a gas station on property) and they are trying to reschedule employees with 4 10's to help reduce their commute. I wish I could go to 4 10's! Gas is a huge killer and I can't cut it out. We don't have public transportation there. So it's either drive or find a new job.

FI drives home for lunch everyday. It used to be ok because he wouldn't be spending money to go out to lunch or eat in the cafeteria. We only live about 5 miles from where he works but I told him he had to start brown baggin' it! We can't afford 4 trips a day!

Hilary Clinton wants a tax break from Memorial Day to Labor Day so hopefully that will pass. Even if its just for those couple of months its got to be some relief. John McCain supports this too but Barack Obama doesn't. Apparently he doesn't feel that it will make a difference.
well it would help consumers, however the governments (especially local governments) would be really hurt by not getting that money and would just raise something else.
I appreciate that McCain and Clinton are trying to do something about the problem.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
