Holy Cow, these gas prices are no joke!

by J. Money - Published May 30, 2008

I know there’s been a 345,456,77.15 articles out there on this whole gas fiasco, but it wasn’t until last night’s fill up that it actually hit me…

These gas prices are ridiculous! I could have bought a used computer instead!
(okay, so that’s a little exaggeration…but great googly moogly just the same.)

Care to take a guess how much it cost me to fill up my SUV? And keep in mind, I have a Toyota Highlander which is quite respectable in it’s class for consumption: $60.56 – for less than 16 gallons!

I know it’s not the end of the world, some people are spending over $4.50/gallon. But it’s just that i kinda blocked the whole gas thing out, and was doing SO good at not letting it get to me :( Needless to say, selling the car will be back on the consideration list again.

Wanna know the saddest part about this? The other day when i was going through my old planner (from back in the college days) i found a “receipts” pouch and took a stroll back memory lane. I nearly fell over at what i saw: Gas per gallon back then – $1.02.

W-O-W.

Bonus tip: Find a good "balance transfer" offer to help pay off debt faster!

If you’ve been making payment after payment (on time) and still haven't been able to get your debt under control, snatching up a good balance transfer credit card offer may be the ticket to try. That’s where in order to gain your business - credit card companies will let you transfer your existing debt to a new card and let you pay ZERO PERCENT interest on it. Saving you tons every month!

What's the catch? Usually balance transfer cards charge a fee (around 3% of your debt balance) to let you transfer your balance to their 0% interest offer. But we've found a great credit card that will let you do a balance transfer absolutely free. Click here to learn more and see if you qualify!

PS: If you don't trust yourself with another credit card, ignore this! This strategy is to help you get out of debt quicker, not risk adding more to it.
