    How much is gas where you live? How much money do you spend on driving for cheerleading?

    In East Texas gas is right at $3.75 -.-
    I spend $30 driving to Plano once a week right now. Last year once comp season started I spent around $50-$60 a week driving back and forth, but we were having 3 practices a week then. So I'm thankful right now for the calm before the storm lol!

    Just filled up the other day for 3.79 for the cheap stuff.....I'm looking forward to reduced travel costs this year. We'll be taking my new car over my DH's SUV..... hello Kia HYBRID!

    We live outside Charlotte, NC. Visited my brother in Cleveland this summer. Topped off the tank about 30 minutes South of Cleveland....drove home...still drove for two more days before I had to fill up. Averaging 39 mpg and about 530 miles a tank.

    <3 hybrid love <3

    Ours went up to $3.95 and is now around $3.89. Needless to say, I have less than an 1/8 tank of gas now in the hopes that it'll go down because I had to get some the other day cause I was on empty and I put in around $13 dollars and only got 3 gallons of gas. :mad: I am very much not trying to drive as much now, but I can only imagine how much it's gonna end up costing us in gas when we drive to Texas towing a Uhaul, yikes. :eek:

    This is a very sore subject for me. Currently my kids drive 160 miles round trip 3 times a week for practice. My son is currently driving a 2003 Chevy Avalanche that gets about 17 miles to the gallon. Gas here is about $3.59 so do the math. It's not pretty. I'm struggling with deciding whether to get a new, more economical vehicle, but he's a new driver and I feel safe with him in that truck. A small, inexpensive hybrid would pay for itself in the $$ saved. Ugh! Tough decisions.

    In my hometown just outside of Chicago the cheap stuff is 4.29, but I didn't fill up there and ended up paying 4.67 in the city. Ouch.
