Changing Your Negativity on the Cost of Gasoline

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart

First! Face it There is nothing you or I can do about it right now about the cost of paying over $5. per gallon. Second... It WILL CHANGE. You see as a person who has helped almost 1,000 families buy or sell a home it has become necessary for me to use some creativity from time to time. So here is what I have done with regard to purchasing of gasoline.  

The other day I purchased at Costco it was $5.05 using up 1/4 of the tank and having spent $85. I expected to spend $23. today, but the cost had gone up to $5.39 and 1/4 of a tank cost me $39. That is more than I used to pay for a full tank of gasoline a couple of years ago. 

Beginning today I will fill up when I have 3/4 of a full tank. This way it won't be so painful. After all it is all in your head.

Less hamburger and more gas at Costco these days. Either way I guess it is good for the climate?

Good evening Dan,

One way to look at it because it can be all in your head so if you make it less painful and it works that's a good thing!

I snicker a bit to myself, because prices do fluctuate.  However, the lines are still long at Starbucks and the nail salon.  Priorities...
