You’re taking a hit to your bank account. This could have been stopped or prevented by opening up the pipeline. We should be self-sufficient and not relying on outside or foreign gas. We had a trip planned to L.A., and now we’re going to fly, because it’s cheaper than gas for our vehicle with a V8 engine.
We’ve been looking for a house on the outskirts of town, but now, because of the length of time to get there and the cost of gas, we’re not going to buy it. It costs $60 to fill up our Mitsubishi Outlander. By the time (we pay for) our house payment and gas, we would have nothing left over.
My family and I share one vehicle. We’ve been filling up about every other day. My job is out in Spanish Springs, and we live in downtown Sparks. I was going to go to Vegas for a vacation this summer; now it’s cheaper to fly than drive. Gas would’ve been double.
Same as everyone else—I’ve got to pay more. I use premium gas; obviously, that is priced higher than regular gas. I filled up yesterday, and it cost me $75. The most I paid before was $55. I was planning a trip to Death Valley, taking an RV; the place I was going to was very isolated and not very populated. Gas would’ve been $7 or $8 a gallon. I am going to keep an eye on gas prices.
I have a small SUV that now costs $68 to fill up. It used to be $35 or $40 to fill up. I don’t drive much around here, but the farthest I’ll go is to Fernley to take my brother to chemotherapy every two weeks. I wanted to go to Florida this summer; now, that’s not happening. Maybe I’ll go up to Tahoe, and that’s about it.
