Tooo painful,

Not to many comment from north of the Canadian border,
much to painful I guess and at $1.35'9 and an 89 cent dollar I feel the pain too when I fill up the 150 GLN. tank on our Eagle that means over $5.11 US. If I figured it out right!

Hence I don't waste any money on additives that I don't have a reason for using.
when I run into a problem I will find a solution, in the mean time I keep my tank full, my filters clean and and the system maintained!

When it comes to saving a buck, you bet I use Gas Buddy and spend enough time to make sure the extra miles are worth it!

But when all is said and done when it is time to go, WHER'E GOING MAN!!!!!!! come hell or high water, or high fuel prices!

Regards,
Ed

Here in NE. Ohio diesel is running $1 to $1.10 above regular gas. Regular ($2.79-$2.89) Diesel ($3.79-$3.89). The further south you go in Ohio the cheaper the prices.

If anyone saw 60 minutes last night, it's inevitable that they will increase the Fed tax on fuel 10 cents. Thousands of Bridges in state of disrepair. Fed tax is now 18 cents per gallon, been that way since 1993.

Many states are now close to raise their state gas taxes. Some states are proposing a series multi year increases. Some in the neighbor of 40 cents a gallon increase.

First: Wal*mart savings depend on how Wal*mart if feeling, For Gasoline it is always at least 3 per gallon but from time to time they boost it to 10 Fill up the gift card in the store fill up the tank from the card.

They also have a "Money" card that saves you 15 (or I should say Up to) but the cost to use that card eats most of the savings.

Some grocery stories (Kroger, Bi-Lo, Ingles, More) have Loyality cards that get you cents off based on how much food you buy.... I'll be using one to donate with later this week, that's going really rack up the points.

And there is GasBuddy.com - Find Low Gas Prices in the USA and Canada Click on the Diesel tab and the "Low price" drop down and you will find the lowest price near you.

CAUTION: though, some stations the price posted with be "With card" (membership/discount/Grocery) so check the fine print on the sign when you get close. Gas Buddy is member provided info.. As I travel I can log in and say "Gasoline here is 2.99/gallon" at the __Brand name__ station,, And they record it

The listings show things like 2.99 Reported by Joe, 3 hours ago.

California is also talking about another gasoline tax for residents. Because newer vehicles are getting better MPG and the State is collecting less taxes they now want to charge owners a per mile gas tax. So all vehicle owners including Hybrid & Electric vehicles owners can pay higher gas taxes.

I saw it as well and welcome a increase IF all of the tax money went to new road surfaces and new bridges.

Money from the Federal Highway Trust Fund is held in a separate account and is only used for highway construction in the States.

However, with increased fuel efficiency and fewer miles being driven by average Americans, the shortfall in funding may continue even if the tax is raised. The following graph is from this article: http://www.businessweek.com/articles...way-trust-fund

It's in a 'lock box', right?

Take care,

Yep, it's catch 22. Our electric company is seeking a rate increase because consumers are cutting back on consumption. Weird, they give us incentives to cut back and then raise rates to make up for the incentives. So we're paying more for less.The result is they make a larger profit percentage and we pay the same (or more). Who loses? We do.

Not only that they are paying themselves handsomely.

I read last week that TVA had planned to give out huge bonuses, averaging $11K per employee, while they still have a $4.6B pension deficit. The CEO of TVA made +$5M last year, he was the highest paid government official.

They do this while they increase rates. Something is not right with this picture.
