The Memorial Day Holiday And Gas Prices

A day to relax and spend time with family is costing us big time.

Here in the newsroom we are constantly talking about the high price of gas and oil and many of us are frustrated because it just seems like there is no end to the prices at the pump going up.  I won't be able to go home for the holiday weekend, as my family lives 10 hours away, but for others with family in North Carolina or elsewhere it makes me wonder how much a trip to celebrate the Memorial Day holiday is really worth.

Filling up the tank literally makes my stomach sick, as I'm sure it does for you as well.  I know my family will be getting together this weekend and even though they're more local, they still have to travel.  I think about my Uncle his wife and their two little girls hopping in their gas guzzler just trying to make the trip to Grandma's house.  It's just wild how these trips that people didn't really ever think twice about making are now a consideration because it's so expensive to basically travel anywhere.

You can't put a price on laughter and love though, and so I hope you all have a wonderful holiday whomever you choose to spend it with and hopefully you get the best gas mileage and maybe find a station on the way with the cheapest prices in town!
