    Unfortunately, gas prices are rising a lot all over the world. This depresses me greatly, but this does not confuse me, especially when traveling. Lately, I do less shopping as at the moment for me travel matters more than shopping. But even if I travel, I travel economically. I usually travel with my backpack, so as not to pay for the suitcase and I choose cheap accommodation. I am flying tomorrow to Barcelona, and I paid 50 euros for the flight. There I found cheap accommodation, and I also found some free tours in Barcelona on https://www.freetour.com/barcelona. So I won't spend a lot of money.

    When shopping, I slow down a bit, I buy the necessities I need, but when traveling, I don't slow down at all. I would never stop traveling. I dreamed of traveling to a lot of countries, and nothing will be able to stop me. Plus I don't travel spending a lot of money. I found some travel hacking that I use to travel for free, and it works. Thus, the gas price increase does not scare me at all. I continue to practice my passion in an economical and very beautiful way. So it doesn't have to bother you as well.

    I finished my 7-day trip this week and calculated my gas costs, you will be shocked, but I drove over $3,000. I'm surprised at that amount myself. I don't make enough money to afford to spend money on gasoline. But as it happens, we had been planning this trip for a long time and I had to go. I noticed that my friends spent less money riding the train. So I decided the next weekend I would take the train. I had already picked out tickets and looked up the schedule on db fahrplan. I was pleasantly surprised by the low fare.

    Up until Biden I could find reg. for about $2.05. My Jeep Hemi likes 93 octane and that is always $.60 more per gallon. Luckily it has the system that drops 4 cylinders when not needed (most of the time) and that gives me about 23mpg highway. Now prices run around $2.15. You can check anywhere in Country with GasBuddy.com Also has a good trip planner.

    the pandemic is the only restriction now for me to travel, unfortunately;(
    I would really love to go traveling in Europe, I have even to some European countries, however the next one is definitely Albania, I've checked already whether Albania may be considered a safe destination for tourists and I'm willing to go there when the borders are open. Tirana ( the capital of Albania) is not such a popular destination, especially if you come from the US. However, I'd really love to see the difference in our cultures and mentality. It's so interesting to see the world with their eyes and explore the customs they have.
    Looking forward to my dream coming true!

    The U.S. Energy Information Administration shows prices are not going to rise very much. I'm expecting it to remain below 3.00 per gallon in my area.
    Also if you have an Indian reservation close by you can get gas tax free.

    If I buy the cheap, E-10, I barely have enough fuel to finish.
    When I purchase 100% unleaded gas, I can mow the yard AND fill up the tiller and have some fuel left over.
    Using 100% unleaded also improves my pickup mileage.
    Best I can figure, due to better performance, buying the 100% fuel saves me pennies in the lo g run.
    Anybody else experience this?

    I think we’re at 2.60-2.70 right now, so when we go back to WV this weekend we’re likely to see anything from 2.30-3.00. I figure it’ll come back down some after the holiday

    Looks like 4.00+ gas in AK again this year. I hope the run is strong in the Thorne this year so I won't have to run 40 miles to get into the fish this year. Last year the Thorne run of silvers was quite strong. I enjoy fishing different runs, but I dislike having to travel to far to get into the fish.

    I tried a smaller yard here. Ended up with WAY too many vermin!
    Rats, mice, skunks, possums and the occasional porcupine were getting problematic!

    Gas without methanol or MTBE can be found at marina's and small airports. Expensive but it is there. At the marina it is around $3.50 +

    We're over three dollars in central New York. I've only got a five minute drive to work, so that doesn't add up to much. Fishing, I did decide to fish a little closer to home this past weekend. My usual river's a good thirty or forty minutes out, and then I usually end up driving around another fifteen or twenty miles to hit different public-access spots. Overall it's not a big burden, as I'm single and don't have kids to drive around and gave up living on a budget years ago.
