Gas Pumps Are Stealing Christmas: NoCo’s Most Expensive Fill Ups
Gas prices are and have been skyrocketing for the last several months and I feel like there is no relief in sight. I mean, typically after the holidays they dip a bit, but since the prices have gone so high, it makes you wonder if the yearly dip is even going to be that much of a relief unless it's a massive one.
I'm well aware that there are folks that spend a lot more on gas, especially those of you that drive the big trucks and diesels. Whew, I can't even imagine.
But for me to be driving what I drive and pay what I pay, it just floors me and makes me cringe every time I fill up, and yesterday, I hit a new record for my 2008 Ford Escape.
Okay, I know there are many that spend way more than that on a fill-up, but for my 14-gallon tank mid-size SUV that is typically 30+ bucks to fill up, this makes me cringe.
I can't imagine driving anything with a bigger tank and having to pay much more because quite honestly, I couldn't afford it.
So, I thought it would be fun to ask listeners what their most expensive fill-up was or has been over the past few months and some of their answers blew me away. In more ways than one.
Thanks to all who chimed in with their thoughts and most expensive fill-ups. We're definitely all in this together. Hopefully, the prices can calm down, even just a little bit over the next few weeks. It would be quite the Christmas miracle for sure!
