Giving it up for GAS

    Newer Older

    It takes a whole stack of cash to fill up my tank these days. Looking on the bright side of things, at least I am not driving a HUMMER. It cost about $120 to fill up one of these. I am glad I am not one of the thousands of selfish morons who is stuck with one of these. Then again if you can afford a Hummer you most likely don't care about how much gas costs, pollution, gobal warming or the rest of us living on the planet..

      I thought you were mixing in $20s as well as ethanol with your gas!

      Nice shot and concept. But in the Netherlands we pay about $11,47 per gallon,... So maybe you feel a little beter knowing that,...

      Seen in DoF (?)

      @Fashion Sloerie,

      thanks for the comment, I keep telling my fellow Americans that we don't have it that bad.

      If you think it's bad over there, in the UK it now costs me £70 ($140) to fill up my Audi A4 Diesel - Which is just an ordinary car, certainly nothing like the vast Hummer!
      Diesel here costs £1.24 ($2.48) per litre!

      @Mike, after the comments from Europe I am thinking we have it pretty good.

      yes you do Mike - my mini (with it's mini-sized tank) is costing $100 to fill, so I'm heading over to your side of the pond in a few weeks, just for a vacation from the fuel prices over here!! Oh, and i might just take some pictures while i'm there ... but that's obviously not the REAL reason for packin bags and sitting on planes:-)

      anyway, i love the originality of this, and of course it demonstrates your usual mastery of a glorious blurry picture:-)

      ps - i'd feel very honored if you'd mail me any recommendations for tasty 'brown' beer in NC as we'll be passin thru on our trip. we've discovered many a good micro-brewery by accident on our stateside adventures, but I'm all in favour of cutting down the 'gas' costs and random approach:-)

      I think it would be cheaper if we could use cash for fuel sometimes... ;)
      Love this one, Mike - really creative! :)
