I saw on the news the other night that gas prices had topped 
$3/gallon somewhere in California. :0

We have our weekly grocery/gas/miscellaneous budget lumped together 
and I have been having less each week recently for miscellaneous (the 
first to get cut, since misc. for us means eating out, getting a 
pizza delivered if no one feels like cooking, etc.) - I guess I'm 
going to have to pull some money from somewhere else to allow for the 
gas increase.
