Good morning peevers.

It's been a busy week, but very enjoyable none the less.

Weather wise it has been lovely, but boy did we have big thunderstorms a day or so ago!

Yesterday we had a very pleasant time in a friend's garden, and you can see the short drive we took together with a shot or two of their place later.

Talking of driving I know that not all of our regular peevers do this, but we are all affected by the cost of fuel.

How much does it affect you, directly or indirectly?

Over here regular gas is around $7.50 for the equivalent of a US gallon.

Luckily I don't do high mileages these days but how do you cope with the cost these days? For some it may be beyond a peeve.

The POTW is;

Cost of fuel these days.

I suppose the biggest way it affects me is that sometimes I give my ex some money to cover the petrol money for transporting our child between us. If petrol was cheaper I wouldn't need to give so much money.

Nice pics

Beautiful pics!!

I would croak if gas was that high here. Most of your cars are very fuel efficient, I suppose?

Beautiful photos Jezer..Gas is up everywhere and especially noticeable on long weekends when we want to go somewhere. Oh well we learned to live with it,but it is still awful how it drains our wallet It is almost becoming a luxury to own one or two cars.

Good morning Jezer.......and Peevers

Been a while.............took a break for CD due to busy life and lack of interest in posting.

But poppped in a few days ago and was looking for you. Someone informed me you only have this once a week. I think that is a good idea.

Anyway glad I found you.......Love the pictures. I love an old english farm house.

Funny I was just noticing gas came down a few cents around these parts. We pay a lot less that Europeans. But then again I can't afford to go to Europe.....my dollar is not worth much. You income ust be higher so you pay more. I guess??????? But then again.....what do I know.

Wow, had no idea it was so much higher there for you, Jezer! Last I paid for it last Thursday here was $3.17/gallon... cheaper than it has been recently (think the highest it was a few years ago was $3.98 or so), but certainly not the really cheap cents per gallon we used to get back in the day in Houston when the stations would have gas wars... we could easily put a dollar's worth of gas in and be good to go for a while! If you're ever curious, here's a gas price link where you can search the current gas prices here by US cities.

Absolutely beautiful and serene countryside photos, Jezer, thanks for sharing... what a great way to spend the day, weekend, forever!

Well I'm certainly glad that I no longer have to commute 300 miles a week back and forth to work.

Very nice pix Jezer.

We're traveling across country right now and the prices have varied so far from $3.39 to $3.89 per gallon for the 87 octane.
And prices always vacillate when holidays pop up. Up about 20-30 cents gal before and then drop down afterwards. Summer the peak traveling/vacation season it's always high.
