Look at the bright side if it gets close to 5 a gallon it won't stay there long since the world economy collapses in the 4 dollar a gallon range.

Gas here is $3.59 a gallon. Should be close to $4 by the time grass starts.

I hate to say it, but I really don't care what the prices get to. I cannot work in an office, I would wither and die without my summer working in the sun, and my winter off unless there is snow!

I enjoy being my own boss, and making my own living too much to worry about the gas prices. We truly have no control until we decide to leave behind oil dependance.

I just add in my fuel surcharges for the yearly contracts, and take it into account when I am doing my quotes...from there is what it is. It sucks, and its less money for me!

Still don't want to drive a Honda and ride an office chair!
