I've been snickering at the prices as I drive by to the station.

It's great that you can take the train. Wondering what the cost is compared to gas? The train didn't used to be much of a savings - except saving on the nerves and stress. Now that gas is $5, it may be a deal.

Sucks, but we gotta deal with it.
How in the world do you afford it? Aren't you glad you moved?

Same, but it's still crazy to see prices climb this fast. As E36 Phantom pointed out, they've gone up about 70 cents in about 5 days.

Yup, they do that now because it costs more to process through a credit or debit card transaction, so they give a discount for cash.
