I wish I could find a forum for campground owners! Now is the time for them to decide! Do you want to have a 1/3 full campground or lower your rates some and fill it up? If the parks adjusted their rates in times of high gas prices they would stay more full as people could afford to travel the same amount.

The original 50% Discount Camping Club - Passport America Discount Camping Club pretty much fills that need for me.

We are in Michigan and had gone to Charlotte NC and then Charleston SC in late March / early April. I had found gas as low as $3.29 and averaging about $3.50. Got back from the trip and found gas prices around $3.80 or so. I procrastinate on filling up the coaches gas tank. Gas prices rising about 2-3 times a week. I finally realized how foolish I had been and filled up the tank 2 days ago @ $4.14. The next day the prices went up to $4.25. I took 60 gallons of gas. . Coulda, shoulda, woulda..........

Im just sayin....................

A couple of charts to view...There is not a shortage of fuel.
It is traded a commodity just like pork bellies. Traders do not have to have real money to play, just big credit accounts. This is capitalism...Sorry

Good old days

Back in the 90's, my good old days, I was able to run the clock on my motorhomes over 100k total miles. Back then I was making 1/3 of what I make now and had monthly bills in many areas not unlike my current ones. Gas then for most of the 90's was $1.30 or so per gallon. Now i'm fully retired, don't have to worry about where my meals come from and now gas is about 3 times as expensive, but now I make 3 times as much money.

Point is, I agree with those who say, do it now, because your right, somebody is seeing this as their good old days. Back in the 60's when I was first driving, my cars got 12 miles to the gallon and each gallon cost $.25. Pack of cigs $.35 and a loaf of bread for $.50.

My answer now is to buy a BIGGER motorhome to be more comfortable and don't put on as many miles. Now we Winter in TX or AZ so far and sit still for months, She doesn't burn gas sitting still.

Nothing has changed, only your frame of reference.

Federal tax on gasoline is eighteen cents a gallon. Federal tax on diesel is twenty-four cents a gallon. The states add their gas taxes, and in a few states, a sales tax as well.

And besides that, cities and counties can add their own gas tax....

Hillsborough County and the City of Tampa does.

That is what I figured. Too bad they sting the trucking industry. Must drive up prices on most of our goods.

CodgerBill, I was looking at gas prices over the US and Michigan seems to be one of the highest right now. I use the GasBuddy app on my phone to find the best prices. Currently in East Texas the best price on Diesel is $3.86.

Don't fill up in Tampa! I'm sure the truckers have figured that out
I'm also getting my CB radio installed this week (been procrastinating for a year), then I can talk to the truckers to find the best places to fuel up this summer.
