As I pulled into the gas station this morning on the way to the Market America corporate office, I experienced a bit of sticker shock. “$3.85!” I proclaimed, “This is ridiculous.” I’m only 32, and even I remember a day when you could fill up your car for thirty bucks – but it seems like today you need a small business loan every time you fill up at the pump. In some parts of the country, gas prices are well above $4 a gallon, and with summer fast approaching it seems there’s no break in sight.
I’ve been looking for ways to try to save money, and have tried to stay at home whenever possible. Shopping online is a great way to do this, because you don’t have to waste gas looking for a great deal! You can even shop for everyday products on great websites like Alice.com, all from the convenience of your couch. Take that MPG!
In today’s world, as international tensions and a host of other factors combine to form the seemingly perfect storm of high gas prices, one has to be truly thankful for online shopping! (Now if I could only shop for gas on Shop.com!)
