There goes my Family Vacation

Price of regular unleaded here in the undisclosed Midwest where I reside just passed 3.68 a gallon.  And this is before the hike that comes in mid-May and June and early July -- the supposed summer travel season.

Where is the anger?  Resigned, resigned, defeated... that is the sentiment of the folks I spoke with at the gas station today.  Everyone kept saying, "What ya gonna do?"  And I said: "Drive less overall, conserve more, carpool.  And buy less gas in any way we can!"  The owner of the gas station then told me to leave.

Is anyone going to be able to take a vacation this year?  Any travel?  Anyone?
