Question Ecomodder Members! What is your age?

Me and DirtyDave were texting back and forth a few days ago. He asked me how old I was and I told him. I knew he was around my age, so I asked back if there were any others around our age. All we could come up with were 3 that were around our age.

It got me to thinking... what is Ecomodder's age demographic like? What age group is most involved in this site and using the information compiled? Even bigger question: Is Ecomodder reaching the younger generation that says they are "green"?

I'd like for everyone to respond in the poll so we can see how it stacks up. You can leave your age/age range in a comment if you fell like it, no pressure in doing so

I'll start this show: I'm 23

When I was 23, gas was 35 cents a gallon and I used 100 gallons a week, at my worst, for 16 weeks. Down to about 5 gallons a week now. I made $13.5k that year, equivalent to close to $100k today

I'll be 65 11/22/2015.

I'll be 53 next week.

I grew up in the late 70's, a time when pretty much everybody had a big block under the hood and gas was under a buck. Times do change!

Nobody under 9? What gives?

I'm 33. Old enough to remember when gas was under $1.00/gallon, for one week of my senior year in high school.
