What the hell kind of celebration do you hold in the cemetery, rob graves of the deceases to pay for your fossil fuels?
Excuse me, but am I the only one that actually celebrates Memorial Day in the cemetery? I thought that was the meaning of this holiday.
One thing I figure I can do to alleviate the weekend fuel demand: Not mow my yard.
I am cutting back on my travels this weekend. There is one must do trip, other than that, I'm sitting at home.
Not my memorial day plans, but it will affect our travel plans for the summer. For tournaments, we will definitely carpool, and leave family members at home to care for the pets.
We're going to St. Louis and the tank has already been filled, but we'll have to top it off before we leave, but that shouldn't take much. We hardly drive during the week, just to pick up the kids from school. My husband fills our station wagon once a month and that gets him to work (while dropping the kids at school) and back. I run to the grocery store and run errands every Friday. That's just about all the driving we really do these days.
If an extra couple dollars a gallon is affecting you that much, then you probably did not have adequate funds for road trips and dinners in Kansas City anyway. It is so much fun to see everyone go into hysterics over the price of fuel and food. If you were eating natural foods already, you would be used to higher prices and would not feel any impact. If you could really afford that car you drive, the marginal increase would not impact you, and you wouldn't care about paying a fair price that factors in environmental impact of your vehicle.
going to vegas for the week.......so no. But it may stop me from my all girls weekend in June.
Typically Memorial day isn't a day we travel much, just enjoy the day off and short work week that follows around the house
Now I can't afford to leave home :( bummer!
They should have asked if the price of food was going to affect anyone's BBQ/picnic plans.
Nothing really curtails my spending habits. The wife and I are going to AZ/MX for a long wknd. But still, I am a Wal-Mart shopping, energy conserving, worn-out-T-shirt-sleeve-cutting-off, sales resistant, non-full price paying, buy what I only need, cook at home 90% of the time miser.I'll leave the excess to the elitist liberals who preach "Green" until I want to puke.
Even if I was in the States, I would probably do the same thing. Working around the house, playing with the boys, drinking some cold ones, and just relaxing in general. Oh yea, and doing whatever my wife tells me to do. Where I am now, won't change my plans at all - work, work and more work.
you bet. I plan on logging about 20 miles for the whole weekend. I would imagine that summer travel will be pressed enough to effect demand..but will see. I struggle to understand how the boaters/jet ski folks can run up and down the lake all weekend at $4/gallon.
Nope. I do the same thing every Memorial Day weekend: a 200-mile bike ride over 3 days.
no but this has affected my wallet more !founder of Ben & Jerrys on the federal budget:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_sOIe5...
I'm traveling over 1500 miles in my monster SUV. Take that mother earth.
I'd probably make a shopping/dinner trip to KC or Topeka over the long weekend, but not this year.
