RE: Fwd: Price of Gas-OT


Cathy,
I've often thought people moaned to much about the price of some things
while throwing away money elsewhere.  Last week was the first time I went
over $20 for a gas fillup. $20.52 to be exact.  A tank lasts me a week and
with it I can get to work to earn a paycheck, and go wherever and whenever
I please.  I don't complain at all.

My only complaint about water (utility) prices is that here they charge you
sewage for all water you use and the sewage rate is higher than the water
itself.  In the summer if I water my beds, I pay for something I'm not
using.  Otherwise, I pay just a little less than $1.00 a day for
water...and just imagine all that you get for that $1!

Kitty
