    I have been checking this link: Chicago Gas Prices - Find Cheap Gas Prices in Illinois

    The caption was set at my zip code. Ugly, no?

    I was hoping to find some cheaper prices, but in general, no. Not around here. Bad to worse seems to be the word today.

    Same with food costs. Same with utilities.

    Unemployed or underemployed? Out of luck.

    Not plentiful, but around. Until today, there were good reasons to check where I had to go and zip codes. Over the weekend I saved $.39 a gallon. I filled up. Not so good today.

    I had to go to daughter's and within 3 miles of her had much cheaper gas. Now the prices have tightened.

    You're a good .60+ cents higher than I paid today at the lowest. I'd think of sexual favors north of $4.00.

    Nothing. I pull up, fill up. I do have a couple of favorite convenience stores where I do gas up.

    I saw a friend putting a couple of dollars into his tank at a locally owned station. He said he needed just enough to get to Indiana so he could fill it up 5 cents cheaper.

    I thought what an idiot- he won't spend his money locally. Probably saved $1.50 for the tank full.

    Other than to school and grocery, I don't drive. Weekend at daughter's was anomaly. Happened to be that it's 20 miles and I needed gas, so checked the prices and bought at low, out there. I'm good for more than 2 weeks.

    Two things (if I lived in ChiTown): Sell my car and take the 'L' until I could move to Wisconsin.
