Hey Everyone!

This has nothing to do with cakes. I would like to know what the gas prices are in your part of the USA/ World. Gas prices here in Bossier City, Louisiana have made the all time high & gotten up to $2.50 a gallon!!!! I am in shock!! This is ridiculous!!!! thumbsdown.gificon_cry.gificon_eek.gif Gas is probably low here compared to other places. Thanks~ icon_lol.gif

$2.69 & up around here......and it's really hurting us because we own a landscaping company!!! icon_mad.gif Almost every piece of equipment we use is gas powered. So because of sky high gas prices, my DH is having to go out and sell, sell, sell!! lol We've gotten a few new accounts and also some big landscaping installations down at some condos on the beach....big money down there! But one good thing is we're able to recoup a little during October-early March....less growing grass, etc.=less work=less gas usage....so needless to say, fall/winter can't come soon enough for us this year!! The only thing that keeps us in business with these gas prices so high, truly, is that almost 100% of our fuel (even in our cars) is tax deductible. Thank the Lord!!

It's $2.45 here and I hear it's going up ... again! Totally ridiculous .. we need an alternative fuel for vehicles .. one that isn't so costly and cheap to make.

I filled up today in Belvidere, IL (80 miles west of Chicago) for $2.59. DH said he saw gas in by where he works closer to the city for $2.85. EEKS! I drive a Ford Expedition, what a gas hog! As soon as I start selling enough cakes to make a car payment, that truck is outta here!!
Time that you enjoyed wasting wasn't wasted.

JennT: I completely understand where you are coming from. My hubby too is a self employed landscaper, backhoes, mowers, dump truck, bobcat, weedeaters, everything he has is a big, big, gas-guzler!!!

Hopefully, I will get more cake orders to pick up the slack.

I heard that the gas prices will go down after Labor day.

In the greater Olympia, Washington area they are around 2.69. But I camped at Mt. Rainier this weekend and saw prices close to the mountain around 2.89!!!! I'm always amazed when I go back home to eastern Ohio to visit my dad and the prices are so low.
