Rebate checks??
Have ya'll got yours yet? I got mine sometime last week. Its still sitting in the savings account. I wonder if Americans will spend it like Washington hopes they do? Give me some of your thoughts. You think it will stimulate the economy or what. I have the mind that it will help a little but not enough. I think most folks will just hang onto the extra cash, pay off credit cards or use it for gas and food money. Me.. I will just be hanging on to it for awhile.

Gas did go down a bit the other day. I got it on Sat at $3.37. What are ya'll paying for it?

Still waiting here. I had to pay Uncle Sam this year because they said I made too much profit on my stocks so the rebate softens the blow. My rebate goes toward my sons tuition one pocket and out the other.
Gas is $3.57/gal. Heating oil just topped $4.00/gal for the first time. Seriously considering selling my truck and downsizing to a 4 cyl hybred.

Still waiting on mine, I think it will be in mid month.

I think it's the most rediculas thing I've ever heard. Some politicians want to bad mouth President Bush for his tax cuts and then increase taxes but when the economy weakens a little what do they do. Give us a rebate on money we paid in to begin with. I don't get it. Why is it bad on the one hand and the thing to do on the other?

I don't want to rub it in but I made my last payment for my daughters college in March. What a great feeling. She will graduate with a four year nursing degree that only took five years! That's better than a pay raise and makes the Fed rebate look like chump change. :biggrin:

Still waiting here...

We're gonna buy a new couch. The old one's pretty shot...

I think the stimulus will help some. Nothing is gonna do much until soaring fuel prices are controlled.

Gas is $3.45 here in AR. Diesel $4.05

Glad my wife drives a 4-Banger!
