On average it costs me about $40 a week to go to work and get groceries once a week.,, my work place is 14 miles round trip and the grocery store is 42 miles round trip.  Of course we also take our garbage to the dump once every week or two... about 6 miles round trip.  Other than that... we don't go anywhere much.  Road trips are out of the question, especially out of state road trips... who has that kind of money these days?!

+1 Seems like we are in the same modus operandii.  Same distance from work and about same expense.
I take my trash to the dumpster @ work and save on that particular vector.

I'd like to see gas hit about $8so we can get cars with decent mileage over here.  When I'm in Europe I can rent a Ford Fiesta diesel that gets over 45 miles per gallon but Ford won't sell it here.
Full disclosure:  I work in oil/gas exploration and have a company car so I don't actually buy gas, but my wife and kids do,

Last week prices here in Central Iowa went down $.06 to $.08 due to oil commodity prices going down $11/barrel.  Yesterday they went up $.12/gal when oil commodities went backup $3/barrel.

About 4:00 yesterday afternoon the gas mafia realized people weren't going to buy that story and they decided to say it's because of worries about flooding in Louisiana.  Next week it will be locusts in Kansas of something.  We've seen the end of affordable fuels in the USA.  Oil, banks and Wall Street own the government and they won't give it up without a fight.

Sad state of affairs.
Where the heck are we going?  And what's with this hand basket?

So they raise the price of a stamp, AND, take the glue off of the back?!

How are they supposed to stay stuck on the envelopes?

Filled up the Jetta TDI last night.

It cost me $57 at $4.19/gal for diesel. I haven't seen a price drop in recent months.  :(
