So How are Sikhs Passing Gas?

So yesterday I had to fill my car with gas. I never really pay attention to the price of gas until I get to the pump. Yikes!! Is it really $3.75?? And that is just for the 87 octane. I feel bad for the ‘ballers’ in our community that choose to drive expensive redundant SUVsgas.jpg and other vehicles that might come in handy should the apocalypse strike.

All over the media, we are hearing about the scary $4/gallon that is coming up. Most of these articles read the same. However, a recent article on the same subject in the Fresno Bee reminded me of another factor…we own these businesses.

Harry Dhaliwal, owner of the Olive Avenue Chevron, said he sympathizes with his customers, who are increasingly making smaller purchases of gas.

“It used to be people would spend $20, or $30, and now it’s more like $10 and $20,” Dhaliwal said. “The only people who fill up anymore are the people with the credit cards. What does that tell you?”

So let’s here our take. Are you driving less? Are you considering to join the hybrid craze? If you own a gas station, what has been the effect on your family? At least from the Fresno Bee poll, people are not putting the blame on gas stations. So, will there still be too many Hummers in the Gurdwara parking lot on Sunday?

    Hitting $4 will be a wake up call for many in the coming months. With the economy they way it is and the credit crisis I can just see this becoming an even bigger issue for consumers. Especially for those buying gas on credit and only paying the minimum, it's probably already costing them twice as much as they pay at the pump. I won't be surprised if prices go even higher though, in England they pay around $10.

    A few other points I would like to make are that the when Bush came into office gas prices were around $1.40, last year gas companies reported record profits $40 billion and we are spending trillions of dollars in Iraq in hopes of getting future gas subsidies. All this together doesn't add up …..

    Some of us who don't have a choice because we drive for a living are paying throw the nose for the mistakes of the current administration.

    I don't feel bad for folks who choose to drive SUVs. I feel bad for folks who rely on their vehicles for their livelihoods or who cannot afford to live in cities and have to commute. I feel bad for folks who live where it's cold and where the cost of heating/gas has tripled in the last year.

    But for those in areas where they can do it — biking, walking, public transportation, carpooling — are all preferable.
