Sorry to hear the news...that stinks!

Like Bicycle Bob said "Can you help other job-seekers save gas?". Last year I started my own "eco-driving school" for $20 (the cost of the magnetic signs I put on my car) and I brought in an average of $120 a week over a few months just for doing something that others could not on their own. The word spread quickly (word of mouth advertising from current client to new client) and I had more customers than I could actually handle (I only had a few extra hours a week to dedicate to it). Not that I'm rooting for gas prices to go up but I'll have the signs back on my car and ready to take on new customers when "panic at the pump" sets in again...might be an easy way for you to make a few bucks right now.

With the summer coming up it's a great opportunity to watch gas prices go up and people frantically look for ways to save money on gas...nice niche business to supplement income (and all under the table too)!

The thread I posted about it is below...
