Becky says: Really. 82 bucks?

Posted: Updated:

It cost 82 bucks to fill up my tank today. And we have weeks left until Memorial Day weekend, or that whole "start of the summer travel season." Great.

I know. It seems every year, we hear the horror stories about how high gas prices will go up each summer. This year, we are hearing $5 a gallon by summer - exactly when, I don't know. I have my doubts the price will truly skyrocket that high.

However, now that it just cost $82 to fill up my tank and we've only just begun (insert music) the month of April, I have to admit, it worries me a bit.

I like to drive back to see family in Cincinnati every now and then, but if gas truly reaches 5 bucks a gallon, I may have to hold off, on road trips until the fall.

82 bucks is bad enough ... Please don't get any worse.
