This one's tough to watch.

Rising gas prices have Americans pinching pennies - CBS News Video

Gas prices are hurting everyone these days... $4.00+ / gallon is brutal.

... but this guy can't even make a stop to pick up his daughter some ice cream.... ya gotta feel bad for him.


... well... at least they'll be comfortable on the drive home in that Lexus

yeah, my '03 got like 65 mpg, and had a 220 mile range on the tank before hitting reserve. I miss that bike for that reason. I do not miss the rest of the bike one bit

what a shithead to get on tv with a gs on rims and talk about pinching pennies. and what a shithead reporter for trying to pass that off as a story.

edit: no seriously fuck the reporter. at least the guy with the lexus can claim he was just doing it to get on tv. the reporter seriously tried to pass this off as a story. what a douche. i hope whoever's waiting in line to get this guy's spot gets moved up.

I feel for the many struggling people in this country that do legitimately live paycheck to paycheck.

But to all the other retards that don't know how to save a bit of money and put it aside:

two things, first a surburban is potentially more of a practically required vehicle. maybe he needs the cargo/personnel room. but even if he doesn't, he now bikes 50 miles a day. i think he fully understands his choice of vehicle. i have no problem with that part of the story.

surviving in hard times is all about sacrifice. if youre not willing to do it, youre not going to survive. zero sympathy.

ya i think cbs could have found thousands of better people to interview for this story. a little girl not getting ice cream is not really a huge concern for Americans. There are ppl in much worse situations that would have made me a lot more interested in the story.
