Linda of Are We There Yet has kicked-off the summer with her Pain at the Pump Meme to compare the rising gas prices on the road sides of America. On May 24th, we paid $3.86 a gallon compared to Linda’s $4.12 a gallon.

Today’s Gas Price at the Pain in the Rump Pump is,

No need to pay to play this Meme…..
According to Linda, Memes need rules… who knew? 😉 Anyone on my blogroll is free to play along, tag along or be it using Linda’s rules from the secret Royal Magic Book of Meme Rules…

  • Rule #1 – Take a picture of the gas prices in your local area.
  • Rule #2 – Post that picture on your blog to share with other readers.
  • Rule #3 – Tag other bloggers as you like – or not! It’s entirely up to you!
  • Rule #4 – If you’d be so kind, refer folks back to me at my Pain at the Pump Meme so that I can either feel envious of or sorry for people in other parts of the country/world and their cost of gas!

  1. Hi Miss Petrol Down Under 2008,

    Are you the Calendar Girl for Petrol Down Under 2008? 😉

    $1.55 is is very close to what we paid eight years ago!

    Very interesting to compare the different gas prices. Are your other taxes low?

    P.S. is that $1.55 per gallon or $1.55 per Litre which is $5.867 per gallon?

  2. Hi RennyBA,

    Photos of the Rump Pump prices can be posted by bloggers from every nation!

    Although $10 per gallon is outrageous, the pain is the 253% increase in gas prices over the past 8 years in America.

    According to one news source, the pump price in Norway is the result of taxes.

    “Norway’s gasoline prices became the highest in Europe this week, somewhat ironic since Norway is an oil-producing nation.”


  3. ours is hovering between $1.55 and $1.65..
    so I suppose I can’t complain Miss MP..
    love that cartoon and the photo 🙂
    wow $10 in Norway Rennie!!!… unbelievable !!!
    lol @Speedy…those names you come up with !!

  4. Can’t do it since I’m from Norway, so to show you the picture of our gas prices would make you faint (its 10$ per gallon). So for me its hard to understand what pain you are talking about 😉

  5. Hi Fuel em Cattenbargo,

    Will you cheat on the rump pump gas prices?

  6. OK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! …. but I might cheat.

  7. Hi Linda,

    Dubya knows how to whip the economy our butts into shape 😦

    Remember the good ole days when George Dubya blamed Slick Willie for the high gas prices in 2000 when gas was $1.56(a1) per gallon?

    Wonder what Dubya would say about the current President’s amBush?

    (a1) the national average of gas during the summer of 2000

  8. The sad thing about this meme is that it could be just like “The Song That Never Ends” because there appears to be no end in sight to the rising gas prices which in turn causes everything else to rise. A drive past my local gas station today showed the price at a whopping $4.29 a gallon! UGH!

    Thanks for playing along and it’s definitely a pain in the rump at the pump now no matter where you may be!
