Now, I don't want to hear any comments from Twinga, my German friend who reminds me how much they are paying for gas there whenever I get to belly aching about US gas prices.
Just let us wallow in our pain. Everything is relative, my dear, and these prices are relatively GINORMOUS.
When I bought my Jetta 7 years ago, I could pretty much fill it up with $20. The last time I filled up it was $53! Premium gas is going for about $4.50 at my local gas station.
I think I'll start taking the train when my son's school year is over and I don't have to drive him to school in the morning.
