WHAT THE.....


 OK, WE'VE BEEN HERE BEFORE...

HEADING TO OVER $4, POSSIBLY $5 A GALLON

SOME PEOPLE TRADED IN THEIR BIG SUV'S

SOME PEOPLE BOUGHT THE PLUG IN'S :)

SOME EVEN STARTED USING MASS TRANSIT 

OR RIDING A BIKE

SOME DROVE A LITTLE SLOWER

OR JUST DIDN'T GO SO MANY PLACES

NOT EVEN ON VACATION

AND EVERYONE CUSSED WHOEVER WAS RESPONSIBLE...


THEN PRICES WENT DOWN...


DID WE KEEP DRIVING SLOWER ? 

TAKING THE BUS, TRAIN OR CARPOOLING ?

DID WE KEEP BUYING SMALLER CARS ?

STAYING HOME ?

STOP CUSSING ABOUT IT ??

NAW......

WE SCOOPED UP THEM GAS GUZZLERS 

CAUSE THE PRICES CAME DOWN SO LOW

WE GRABBED THE CHEAP FLIGHTS

AND SPLURGED ON THAT DREAM VACATION

WE HUNG THE BIKES BACK UP ON THE RAFTERS

AND IF THE SPEED LIMIT SIGN SAID 75

WE SMILED AS THE NEEDLE HIT 85

AND STILL CUSSED


I LIKE MAXINE'S IDEA 





SPEAKING OF.... I NEED TO CONTACT MY CAR INS. AGENT

CAUSE I DECIDED THIS TIME,

I'M GONNA DRIVE A LITTLE SMARTER


GOT A  NEW . TO .  ME  CAR THE OTHER DAY:)

2010 HYUNDAI ELANTRA

35 TO 40 mpg HIGHWAY

SMALLER GAS TANK

AND THAT 100 THOUSAND MILE WARRANTY

STILL HAVE OVER 70 THOUSAND TO GO :)

AND SINCE MY SON IS SERVICE MANAGER...

I DIDN'T GET THE EXTENDED WARRANTY :)

IT'S ALSO THE FIRST WHITE CAR

I'VE EVER OWNED

REALLY....

SO, WHAT YOU DRIVIN ?













Don't try to be someone else

Congrats on the new better for the world car!!!
Do you know that the Coach and I both drive white vehicles...and we have for the last 15 years. ALWAYS white.
I went from a big SUV to a small-er-ish crossover Buick this last year. Still can't get any smaller than that....not yet anyway.

Congratulations on the new-to-you car! That's great!
I am driving a Toyota Corolla. In mint green. It was new to me too, 4 years ago.
And I just don't look at gas prices anymore. And, btw, here in NJ prices are still below $4....
(and they put it in our tank)
I've been driving 4-cylinder cars since 1989, doing my part saving energy.

We keep driving Hondas, which we feel are good on gas. But this particular one, he doesn't feel it's as good as he figured it would be. Soooooooo...

But being "olden," and not going very far or traveling any more, we never use much gas.

Congratulations on the car.

However, a smaller gas tank just means you have to go the gas station more often. I'm just sayin!!!!!

As you know we have CATIZ which is 16 years old and sounds like a tank. Gets good mileage from my house around three blocks to the office and back.

Also, we have PAWPAW, an 11 year old Toyota which is still in grand condition and gets good gas mileage.

The best car we had was an Audi 4000 that had a diesel engine. The only problem was the fuel tank got a hole in it and the diesel soaked into the back seat. Smelled like a truck driver after driving it.

Love you tooooooooooo.

Man gas prices.... & I hate when people say we pay more for water cause I hate paying for that too! LOL....

I drive a Geo Prism, gets pretty great mileage & I rarely drive so I guess I can't complain too much.

Thanks for commenting on my stuff & I'm very rarely serious... love to laugh & I did catch the little pics on your blogs that speak to me & my inner voices:-)
