Well gas is finally under $2/gal but don't expect it to stay that way for long. Diesel is still about $2.29. Anybody use biodiesel? Any special mods to truck motor? Seems like if it works, it would be a great way to help reduce our dependence on foreign oil.

If you are past you warrenty period on the truck and you heat you home with oil. Some friends of mine are using #2 from there house tanks and it is a lost cheaper than the pump.No good if you still have warrenty though because of the color. Any one else have experience here. I have a gasser so I can't varify.

Had picked this Willie Nelsons "BioDiesal" off the news. Looking on the map of stations they are few and far between right now.[IMG:right]C:\Documents and Settings\sclark\My Documents\My Pictures\Willie%20Nelson.jpeg[/IMG]

Seems to be getting worse. Some one is happy with the prices but not the customers. We will still camp but close and will not go far.

Fred Barnes over on FOX news was one of the happy ones as he said they need to get the word out that American people have no rights to low gas prices. Rich folks like that have no idea what continued high fuel prices is doing to the average and low income folks and long term damage to American business. Hope someone can nip the rising price of crude. Thats the biggest pusher on high fuel costs.

There is more than enough oil. There are ships in ports full of it. We just don't have enough refineries to process it.
Thank you, environmentalists.
Until there is a "softening" of the demand the price will continue to rise. And when there is less demand the oil companies will stockpile the refined oil (gas/diesel) in tank farms. Outside of me town there is a tank farm being built. It consists of 7 tanks that hold 600,000 gallons of fuel.
There only way the costs will stabilize is for the demand to go down.
So, summer is here. Fill'er up and take shorter trips.
I am 60 years old and ride my motorcyle to work and most everywhere else. I plan my trips/vacations closer to home. If I was on a fixed income I would probably be taking more vacations on a motorcycle rather than my RV.

Yep, thank the enviromentalist for part of the problems with building new refineries in the US. They have regulated to the point that it is not economically possile to build here, so we have not had a new refinery built here in close to 15 or 20 years. So the oil companies only do wah t they can and build over seas.

I would imagine that the environmentalists are all kicked back by now, with their chests all puffed out, patting themselves on the backs and telling em selves what a FINE job we've done!!!

Jim you are right the wealthy have no idea what the prices will do to the ordinary voting citizen. The OILMEN IN OFFICEare lining their pockets for their upcoming retirement!!!

The wealthy can pay whatever the price might end up being.

This is more reality than ficton...



Here's a little tool that might help you find the lowest price (which is all relative at this point and juncture).
