Cruising to the quilt shop

Howdy!

On the way to Sandy's Quilt Shop in Burleson:

http://users.htcomp.net/sandysquiltshop/index.htm

we found gas for $2.62 per gallon.  Fill 'er up!

 At Sandy's Quilt Shop I bought some lovelies,
which were then "sacked" in a gorgeous fabric bag;
they make small pillowcase style bags out of fabric
leftovers, using those instead of "plastic or paper"
(they sew a quilt shop label on the outside; clever).
Environmentally- & quilter-friendly  ;-D
(Next time I'll ask for a Green-er bag; I love green! <G>)
  The women who work there are extremely friendly and
helpful; Sandy's has been a supporter of our guild for years.
Finding the gas at $2.62 just down the road made for
a wonderful Cruise to the LQS.   Yee-Haw!
(and I saw my new d-i-l in that area, too)

What's the gasoline situation in your area?

R/Sandy

We're hitting a low for the past several months....  $3.19  (after over
$4.00 at one point!)

Wally World has it for 2.94 here. Leaving for much needed vacation to
central Florida the middle of this week so hope we find gas under $3.00!!
Sounds like you had a very nice trip to the LQS, too!! Love the idea of the
fabric bags.

Here in Pierce County (Tacoma and environs), WA, gas is down to 3.05 per
gallon.  I'm*** in there for less than 3.00 per gallon!

Good news is that gas is not in short supply and
traffic is way down.  Gas is at $3.47 for regular
this morning according to dh.  I stay pretty close
to home and unless I go to dad's house (96 miles
away or more rarely to ds's house 140 miles away)
We just don't use a lot of gas.  Sensible cars,
planned outings and liking my home all help a lot.
Your outing sounds wonderful Sandy.  Nice of them
to name a shop after you.  LOL

$7.45 per US gallon, if Ive converted it properly (just under 1.10p per
litre).  Ouch! Filled my very little car (Nissan Micra) the other day
and it cost 40! which the conversion tables tell me is $67.
  Its no wonder I don't go anywhere anymore!!

Wowsers!!!!  Our gas hasn't gotten any lower than $3.59 in the
Clatskanie/Longview Washington area.  My DH and I make an attempt to
go to town ONLY once every few weeks or longer if possible.  It's just
too expensive!  :o(
I gasp everytime I have to buy groceries.  At one point gas was as
high as $4.59 and it took awhile for it to slowly go down.  OUCH!!!

Glad you had a great day R/Sandy!

It's under $3 here in southern Minnesota these days. State gasoline tax
rates vary considerably, so that is going to affect any state-to-state
comparisons. For example, we're only about 50 miles from the Wisconsin
border, but gas prices on the Wisconsin side of the Mississippi River
are usually a bit higher than on the Minnesota end of the bridge because
their gas tax is higher.

sales tax in my county 7.75% and I think a half cent higher yet in LA
county so variances even go county to county.

Folks in San Diego used to go across to Tijuana years ago and buy gas
cheap there.  I think there is still some of that but it has to be a
lot more trouble than it used to be.
