got gas?

so greece is having a gas strike.

we have no gas.

i topped off at the station out in town a few days ago and paid 40 euro or $63 for 1/4 gallon. that's right, it costs 160 euro or about $248 to FILL UP MY CAR. a 22 gallon isuzu trooper. YIKES!

i know we all feel the gas pinch, but be glad you're not buying it on the economy here in greece!

i should note, i RARELY buy gas out in town at those ridiculous prices; we usually (not now) can get it on base for about $3.90/gallon.

now i gotta figure out what we're going to do with our friends, laura and ted who arrive tomorrow. we have 3/4 tank left in my car! so much for seeing all the sites! :(

Wow, that is terrible. That figures out to be $11.27 a gallon. Yikes, and I complain about $3.84 for cheap gas here. The premium stuff is $3.99. How do you get gas if everyone is on strike? You mean you can't get gas at all? Have a good weekend. I am thinking about you both all the time. Kathleen
