We have a Honda too.  Good on gas and reliable.  Plus if something goes wrong with it, it is usually cheaper to fix.

^^^^^This is my second Honda.........2004 Accord.  Had a 1994 Accord before that.  Great gas mileage on both of them.

Japanese cars seem to be dependable vehicles.

I knew a guy in high school who had an absolute loathing for Fords: in fact, I don't recall him ever saying "Ford" without adding an obscene adjective or six; it was always "%^$#@$%!! Ford."

I was going to trade my car in for one these things on the theory that hay is cheaper than gas, but apparently they come with drawbacks, too.   ;D

Nah; I've decided: no mule. But buying a shovel and digging holes until I finally find my own oil stash somewhere has gone way up on the list of possibilities.  ;D

My hubby just read on his forum boards that Branson, MO, here in the states.........you know, the place up in the Ozark Mountains that have a huge resort/entertain selection????  He heard attendance at the shows and atractions are way down this summer because of the gas prices.  So we've decided we're going up there in July for a weekend to see the "Liverpool Legends" Beatles' tribute band.  They're great!!!!  And managed by George's sister, Louise.  So, I guess there is a "silver lining" to some people during this gas crunch.  And I know what it is...............the "Blue Hairs", as I call all the very older, retired people probably won't to going to Branson because they always take chartered buses and the price of diesel is outragous!!!  And please pardon the "pun" of "Blue Hairs".............
OH.............Branson is just a three hour drive for us.............

We're thinking about it.  Prices have gone down, the "Liverpool Legends" has moved to a new venue..................so we got to find out what hotels/motels are around the site.  We like to "walk" to the show and not drive half way across town.

I was always wondering about high gas prices in Russia. As you know Russia is one of the biggest exporters of oil but the prices on gas are high enough here. I just want to mention that only now after many months of price increasing in the US the price on gas in the US is equal to one in Russia.

your gas prices are high because they export your gas and probally import what you use from somewheres else....good relations are after all proper...why sell it to you when someone else will pay more else wheres?

Hey, Russian are Slovic like me............I'm 100% Polish and relate to all of that.  Us Slovic people are a "passionate" breed of people and have strong family ties.  At least that's what us down here in my little Polish community have.
And the prices of gas??????  We had a "gas war" here locally between the new Wal-Mart Super Center and the Valeo gas station.  Gas was like for regular 3.54 a gallon and dropping every time the other person dropped.  People were lined up for MILES trying to buy this cheap gas.  It only lasted from Friday A.M. 1200 to Saturday A.M. 1200.  I was not going to sit in line and wait for this crap.  I don't use that much gas anyway.......

We're talking about gas here, but anyway I can't be silent about situation in our country.
Can you imagine that inflation in this year is already 9%? It is as high as in 2000 when Putin became our president. He did nothing for our economic and left :( We don't have economics. We live on oil. We are at the level of Nigeria! Pity  :o Even in Nigeria inflation is lower. Poor country. Sad to admit it.
I'm afraid that some kind of economic crisis will happen soon
