Labor Day Trip in Doubt

My wife and are were talking about driving down to Atlanta to visit with some of our friends down there for the long weekend. We also have a friend from college who’s in a rehab hospital down there after a car accident. Now this is all in doubt because of the insane way gas prices have skyrocketed.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t really want to spend all of my money on gas for a 4-hour trip. I’d like to be able to have some fun while I’m down there. I also don’t want to get in a situation where I’m stuck somewhere without gas. I don’t think there’ll be a shortage, but you never know with the way the local news media across the country is sensationalizing these stories.

With that said, I’d like to think that I’m not going to let something like this affect my plans. This is America, and we do what we God damn please no matter what. I guess I can always rely on the old standby, the credit card.
