    This is the beginning of the summer travel season. Fuel prices increase like this every summer. This is because of increased demand and the additional cost of the summer fuel blends that the EPA requires.

    There are only a few options:
    1. Drive less - lowers demand
    2. Buy a more fuel efficient vehicle - again lowers demand
    3. Suck it up and deal with it - raises blood pressure
    4. Set up a 500 gallon tank and fill it when prices are low - works for me!

    We are at $2.95 a gallon here. This is crazy. We will be back at $4 in no time at this rate.

    You forgot an option...disband the EPA and hang every last one of them.

    We're aeound $2.60 here, but Albertsons has a promoton that wih every $50 you spend, you get a $0.05/gallon discount ($1.50 max) at their convenience store. I filled up yesterday for $1.309/gallon. Of course, that wiped out my discount until I build it up again.
