    I checked the Kelly Blue Book trade-in value on a Jeep I bought in February 2020. It seems really strange, but the trade-in value now is about 10% greater than the amount I paid for the car 19 months ago.
    Yes, I've heard used vehicles, especially trucks, actually, are expensive. My son is looking for a Jeep Wrangler, and even the really old ones going back 15 years are expensive. He missed out on a deal for a 2007 Wrangler that was selling for $6,500.

    According to Kelly Blue Book my 2018 Ram EcoDiesel pickup with 32,000 miles is worth between $2000 and $4000 more than I paid for it.

    Late last week I paid $2.95 a gallon for gas and today it was $3.13. This will push me over $200 a month on gas.

    $3.55 here in the Chicago area. Got gas for $3.14 when I was up in WI over the weekend.

    I drive as much as always. WI cave diving season starts in about a month.

    We are well over 4. I only need gas every 4-6 weeks so don’t pay that close of attention.

    When we drove to Texas a week ago, gas there was around $2.89. As soon as we crossed the Colorado line out of New Mexico, it was back up $3.25 or higher.
