We are over the $4.00 mark too!!! Insane.. I am praying for a "gathering" of my family someday
..hehehe that way we would just walk to each others houses... I think that is a pipe dream for me..but you may be able to pull it off if you never let your boys travel away from home. HAHAHAAHAHA..or get married accept to the "girl next door" :)

Right now we're at $3.98 though a few weeks ago, we were over $4. It sounds like it is much more expensive where you are!

So you found my blog! It's so crazy how you can find old friends! Our cruise to San Diego was wonderful. I played at the beach all day and I loved it! So do you guys own a business that sells begals? Anyway, I'm still running but just for fun. I have a 10k coming up on June 21 that I don't feel quite ready for but I am excited. It starts at 10pm and it's the first race I'm doing with the kids. Oh, and by the way, yesterday gas here was $4.11

We are paying 3.95 at our Costco. Move back to Utah, Zion!

Jolene said...

$4.55 in Malibu. Yeah, let's just say we're staying home a lot these days.

Liz said...

Yikes, Jolene! That's crazy. I think they're doing this so that when they go back down to $3.00/gal, we'll all be saying hallelujah. When, in reality, that's still high. Oh well, what do you do? We're finding more things to do at home. :)

Here is the story... Morris has been trying to get us to a point were I can retire and not teach anymore.
This afternoon he came in the living room where Teagan and I were playing with the kids and started to tell us this story about what he would do when he felt it was time for me to retire. He said he was going to come into one of our Friday meetings at school with all the teachers and he would rent a officers uniform and wear it and come over to me an swoop me up into his arms like in an officer and a gentleman and carry me out of the school and turn just as we were leaving to tell my boss “Adios” ….soooooooooo sweet… You had to watch him tell it..so out of character for this logical thinker!!! My Hero…I told him he got lots of points for even thinking up that whole thing…Wouldn’t you agree?

We are paying $3.89 at our costco in American Fork. It is unfortunate that the same year that we got our SUV the gas prices have skyrocketed. We have begun to limit where we can go to save on gas. If only one of us is going somewhere we take the "more affordable" Honda. On our trip to Moab we saw a run down gas station advertising about a buck a gallon. I wish!!!those were the days!

We just bought gas yesterday and paid $3.79. The perks of Alabama... A little cheaper, but we'll take what we can get.

Look at all these Utah people who think they have it rough...at least the first digit at their per gallon is lower than 4!! I feel your pain Liz...

$3.88 at Sam's in Provo. I do realize we still have it good here in Utah.

However, when we went to Ireland they were already paying over $5/gallon (1.5 years ago). I can't even begin to think about what they must be paying now!! All of us in the US should count our blessings, it could be much worse!!

Liz said...

Yeah, when my parents and brother were in Israel a few weeks ago, they were paying $7/gal! Crazy!

UHG- I hate gas- Oklahoma is pretty good- I think it was 3.78 this weekend, but it sure is climbing- We really are going to have to rearrange our lives- especially with grocery prices too! I didn't buy anything out of the ordinary yesterday but I was still $40.00 over budget!! I miss the dollar gallon of milk days at the Provo Smiths!

ScottnLisa said...

Last time we checked it was around 3.91 argh! Don't get me started on gas prices and the oil industry and how much I hate them with their billions of dollars...seriously, who needs a billion dollars? What would you do with all that money? Argh!

Scott & Karin said...

I guess I should be glad we're not paying as much as you! 3.89 the last time I filled up.

Hey just gave your blog site to some young kids trying to move to San Diego from Provo this summer ...http://p-brown-family.blogspot.com/
Thought maybe you could point them in the right direction...(they are the daughter and husband of some dear friends in our ward.)
