Around the campfire: Jokes about high gas prices will make you laugh!

The escalating cost of fuel is certainly no joke. It’s hardly funny when it comes time to pay at the pump. But a few nights ago, folks around the campfire started sharing jokes they’ve heard about the high price of gasoline and diesel fuels. Laughing at problems won’t make them go away, but for a little while we surely felt better! I’m hoping my experience at laughing off high gas prices helps you feel a little better, too.

Jokes about high gas prices

  • I got gas today for $1.57. It was at Taco Bell.
  • My friend was robbed at the gas station today. When the police arrived and asked, “Did you recognize the thief?” she replied, “Yes, officer! It was pump number 7.”
  • The guy next to me just put $10 worth of fuel into his gas tank. Where does he think he’s going? To pump number 3?
  • Good news! The bank finally approved our loan and soon we plan to close on a tankful of fuel.
  • Joe’s wife complains that he never takes her to expensive places anymore. So, he took her to the gas station.
  • The average cost of a gallon of gas hit an all-time high again this week. If you plan to travel this summer, it might be cheaper to mail your car.
  • Did you hear about the new federal government fitness program to get people walking more? It’s called “Gasoline at $6 per gallon.”
  • So, let’s do a little math. The government takes about 40% of what you earn. The other 60% is taken by the gas station. No wonder my wallet is so light!

High gas prices. Sign says gas costs an Arm Leg Both

  • Mack puts his credit card in to prepay for fuel. The display screen asks for the make, model, and year of his car, as well as his annual salary. After a brief wait, this message appeared: “Your loan has been approved. You may fill up.”
  • The lady explained to the tow truck driver: “No, the car’s not broken down. I just figured you’d be cheaper than buying gas.”
  • A newly engaged gal showed her ring to her friends. She says, “We’re so excited! We registered at Shell, Mobil, and BP.”
  • Moe went online to check the value of his car. He was asked, “Is it full of fuel or empty?”
  • Are you feeling absolutely sick about the increasing fuel costs? Me too. I think it’s called the car owner virus.
  • Why do gas prices end with 9/10 of a cent? It just makes cents.
  • Remember when air was free at the gas station? Now you have to pay. It’s because of inflation.

Gee, don’t let our government know about that about Europe governments owning the oil companies they’ll want it too then and they can take more of our money.

Crude oil and gas is a world commodity. It is bought and sold on the commodity exchange.
The idea of just drill more is ignorant.
In 2022 the US exported 1.26 million barrels of petroleum products a day.
Companies sell products to make money, it doesn’t matter what the product is that they are selling.

I just wanted to squeeze the trigger a little to add 3 cents and round up to the nearest dollar. Accidentally put in another 10 bucks

This showed up on-line somewhere: “Where do I apply for fuel stamps?”

One legged man was asked how he lost his leg. He replied that he had gotten a half tank of gas.

The cure for high gas prices is surprisingly high gas prices. My fuel costs this summer are actually DOWN from last year. We now carpool when we can, I accelerate and drive slower, I walk or bike when possible, and I shop at closer stores rather than drive farther to my favourites. Also I am RV’ing less and closer to home.
These prices that we now pay are what I was paying in Germany many many years ago. For anyone who travels to Europe you will know there are no “commuter” pick up trucks and SUV’s.

Agree! Spot on. We have paid $6 to $10 a gallon in Europe years ago

I was paying $1.00 a gallon in Germany in 1966 with a Military tax free discount when US Prices were in the 45 to 55 cent range.

I believe you should look at who owns most if not all oil companies in Europe.

 Oil and gas companies are privately owned in the U.S. in Europe most if not all are owned by their government as is true in many other countries around the world. Most of the European nations put a large tax on vehicle fuel, heating fuel and natural gas. Yes they may state that they have free health care and other free perks but somehow they get into your wallet, the VALUE ADDED TAX and fuel tax are just some of the ways.
