Naturalnews.com is not a good news source FYI - that's essentially click-bait.

Just gotta know when to go and come back. Bring two jerry cans, shop at Winco, Home Depot, Terra Organics, Harbor Freight, Trader Joes, go to Northwoods Casino for 100 bucks at par........ WIN!
Today's itenerary:

6:30 AM Wake up = Have a nice breakfast (Lucky Charms, their magically delicious).

7:00 AM Go to work = No traffic, 20 minute drive

7:30 AM - 12:00 PM work your ass off = make lots of money.

12:05 PM Pump gas for 97.9 (Lose out on ~20 bucks compared to those who waited for cheap american gas)

12:30 PM Enjoy watching one of the most nail biting games of the NFL season.

Sorry, but hunting for deals and saving money is great, but I'd rather work harder and just make more money, and put myself further in my career at the same time.

I know it doesn't work the same for everyone, but I know plenty of people who could do better, if they put more time towards making more rather than spending less, or worrying about how much they are spending.

And in the instances when I am not working, I value my time off greatly, so driving and waiting in line ups, and doing the whole song and dance isn't appealing to me.

The rare instance is when I might have a big purchase to make (like my tires next week) which I can save upwards of $600 going to the states to get.

Fair enough, just clearing it up for the vast majority of this sites users who havn't put in their years of effort yet, this is after all RS, and the demographic is pretty young.

You gotta earn those relaxing retirement years...

At first, I was trying to console myself by saying that even though the loonie is in the dumps, at least gas was cheap, and that overall, I am still better off with the cheap gas despite the weak loonie.

Guess I'll just go back to my corner and cry now...

This makes me feel better I decided to budget build a CRX on 13 inch wheels for track duty over buying that P car and pretending to be Marco911.
To think, I could have been RS's asianMarco911 and my best friend is brownHypa.

Whenever my wife celebrates the new lows in gas. I remind her that she saved maybe a few dollars in gas but is getting a pounding with her portfolio.

Then she shutsup.

I actually enjoy my drives across the border to get gas. It's kinda fun, like a little cruise. Picking up parcels for dollars off compared to shipping to Canada is well worth it

I hope gas in Blaine stays at $1.89 a bit longer

agreed! A great quote is "Wealthy people spend money to save time, Poor people spend time to save money"

Poor people will spend a whole day clipping coupons and driving all over town to save $20 on groceries. Wealthy people will spend that extra $20 to get it over with so they have lots of extra time to make more money, or spend time doing things they love, or time with their family.

My favorite is when the fuel lines are 10-15 deep and people are lining up to save .6c

I dont think people fully understand the concept of time/money.

John in his Corolla just saved himself $2.40 to wait 15 minutes...brilliant.

^On a similar note, people that drive over the Patullo in order to avoid the tolls incense me.

I know a guy who goes from Lougheed to Guildford back and forth 3 times a week, and he refuses to spend the $6 per trip, instead taking 45 minutes rather than 15. wtf?

He's essentially pegged his time at being worth 6 dollars an hour by that math.

sure, if you're in a rush to get somewhere and you're constantly getting paid.. lol.. just cuz u take an extra 30 min doesn't mean ur time is worth x amount.. some people don't pay simply because they don't have to. I've done both, depends how I feel and if I'm in a hurry somewhere

why is that? your work hours are set.. the way you use your hours outside of that time period are up to you.. Unless you're a business owner and are trying to rack up as many hours as possible, then every minute would be worth an x amount of dollar value

Nobody likes driving a car when you're stuck in traffic. Doesn't matter if it's a civic or a rolls royce.

In regards to the gas prices... I'm not sure if this is a rally or a temporary bump.. I'm sure jasonturbo has better insight.

there is a growing percentage of the work force that doesn't work the traditional 9-5 anymore. many employees are now on a contracted or salary based employment where they get paid for their production, not for being in the office for 7.5 hours a day. and that doesn't include business owners either.

so ya, if i can spend an hour a day less in traffic, and get one more job done with that hour, and make an extra $65 for that job, im going to pay to not waste that hour driving all over town.
