Price of Gas Fast Approaching the Two Dollar Mark!
So, I just finished reading Wayne's blog on the price of gas in the Marianas, and thought I'd add my own update of gas here in the PNW. As of today, Costco gas is down to $2.11/gallon for regular unleaded. The local gas stations are around the same price per gallon. It now costs me about $30.00 to fill my Chevy Trailblazer! Although, it is good news for daily commuters or those with their not so friendly gas efficient car, the price for everyday commodities is rising. For instance, rice is nearly $30.00 for a 50lb. bag, five dozen eggs is nearing $8.00, a package of pork spare ribs is about $10.00/for about 2.5 lbs., bread is at $2.00 a loaf. We love that the price of gas has gone down tremendously, but everything else is on the rise, so although we can travel quite far now with minimal expenditure on gas, we're not really saving much for everything else!
