I can afford gas for this.

Today, gas is $4.15/gallon where I live. Yesterday, I paid $70 to fill up my 2000 Jeep Sport. I'm very fortunate; $70 means we don't eat/order out as much this week. For too many families, $70 is not just inconvenient -- it's impossible. That's food money. Rent. Medicine. The next time you're at the pumps, check out how much gas the person before you bought. I've noticed a lot more $5 fill-ups.

And Cindy McCain's RNC outfit cost over $3,000?
