The Most Overpriced Expense in 2008

Gas may be relatively cheap at the moment, but this Summer we were shelling out more than $4 a gallon at the pump. When prices inched toward $5, many of us wondered how we would afford to keep driving. Forty-eight percent of you voted gasoline as the most overpriced expense in 2008, and I agree with the majority on this one.

You said the second most overpriced expense is higher education, and with college tuition becoming increasingly unaffordable I can see why you'd rank this one toward the top of the list. For those who have them, student loans are a constant reminder that education is expensive, and for those of us who are thinking about having children, the thought of the future price tag on college is downright scary.
