Are You Feeling This?

Yes, indeedy. We're paying £1.08p a litre for ours.

Over half of which goes to support our beloved government.

Hi freddie!

Saw your new avatar over on EE, clicked, and mosied over here to say "heya." I read some of your other posts. Nice to get a better feeling of who you are. The whole Internet networking thing is so interesting, isn't it? It's kind of like a puzzle -- putting together bits of who someone is a little at a time until finally it's recognizable what the picture might be, but then there's so much more to do before you have a truly complete picture of them. :o)

Now, stop reading your comments and get back to writing!

Hey, cute picture! Except you DEFINITELY don't look thirty-five.

Are you sure you aren't eighteen?

Great picture, freddie!

And yeah, gas in the metro DC is bitchingly high. Yesterday I spent $58.70 filling up.

freddie said...

Fairyhedgehog - So England is feeling this, too, then. I don't know what the rate exchange is, but that sounds comparable to the U.S.

Phoenix - Yes ma'am!

Kiersten - Awww . . . shucks. *blushes* Thank you!

Robin - Thank you! Holy crap - DC is probably as high as Chicago. Chicago is well over $4 a gallon now. Luckily we have a decent public transportation system. I don't know how I would survive without it.

Okay. Back to writing. Trying to finish at least one damn thing this week.

$4.29 a gallon in Northern Maine this morning. We're rural. Can't imagine what the city prices are.


freddie said...

You live in rural Maine? It must be so pretty up there this time of year.

That's really high for rural areas. Chicago's nearing 5 a gallon.

I keep hoping things will get better with this, but they keep getting worse.

freddie said...

I mean Northern Maine. Don't know where I got rural. My bad.

Yes, it's gorgeous just now. Fall is even prettier.

We have about the highest gas prices in the state in my town because we border Canada, which is traditionally much more expensive.

However, it's approaching equity now.
