Economics 101.

As prices rise, supply increases and prices decrease.

I'm happy there is not a shortage as there was in the early 70's!

Hey, Tom, Giant Eagle is giving double (20 cents) Fuelperks on every $50.00 gift card you buy. That equates to $6.00 off on the limit (30 gallons) for each gift card you buy.

Maybe you want to come back to PA to do your holiday shopping and refuel.

I put 30 gallons in my truck yesterday. At $3.599 it came to $108.00. With my 60 cent Fuelperks, it brought it down $18.00 to $90.00.

I don't have to come back to PA. Those cards can be purchased on Giant Eagles website or by using a toll free phone number and they will mail them.

My problem is than I won't be back to PA until mid-April and the fuel perks expire in 3 months. I may buy some of the cards after January.

I still remember the fuel shortage and waiting in line for hours to get 5 gallons. I would pay most any price for gas to never have to go there again!!!

We are on our trip to South Texas from New Mexico via Florida. I know, something wrong there. We decided to see the grandkid, and friends before spending the winter in Port Aransas. I may NEVER go back to Florida again. From the time we hit the state line, the RV parks were overpriced, undersized and the fuel is HIGH. We paid $3.49.9 a gallon for Diesel in Wildwood, Florida then later today having made it to Gulfport, I topped it off at $3.19.
Come on, 30 cents difference! Goodbye Florda, no more small RV parks, and fuel gouging.<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Originally posted by 454COR:

Its 1.05 per liter 4.07 per U.S. gallon here in Ontario.

But with the strong Canuck buck we still save tons when we travel in the good ol USA.

Diesel is $3.79 in my neck of the woods and regular is $3.29. In the 70's I rode a motorcycle full-time, so I never had to wait and could fill up when ever I wanted.

Well, I'm looking at a fill up in a few days that will most likely be in the neighborhood of 100 to 120 gallons.

If I use Safeway which I most likely will I'll end up paying about $3.19 per gal for diesel for the first 50 gallons and around $3.26 for the remainder for a total of about $385.00.

That should last me about 1700 miles or 4 to 6 weeks if we don't do any towing. If I tow I'll get about 1200 to 1300 miles out of that 120 gallons.

Franks put it pretty well into perspective, we are not going to win this one, so just trade off something, freebee parking for a night, eat one meal in every few days.

Those kind of adjustments will sorta balance it in our wallets if not in our minds.

Enjoy

Roger

I could only wish for 1700 mi on 120 gallons, I'll be doing about 1/2 of that. I guess I need to eat in most nights now.

I was in Bullhead City, AZ yesterday and found diesel priced at $3.69/.

Ended up back in Kingman and filled up at "Smith's" Food & Drug (maybe known as "Kroeger's" for you folks east of the Rookies).

I had $.15/gallon credit off their current pricing of $3.299/gallon on my "FreshValues" savings card for one fillup or 100 gallons at their fueling station, So filled both tanks with 108.857 gallons of diesel for a grand total of $342.79.

As it turned out my odometer said I'd gone 2256 miles on the previous tank. So I'd say I'm doing ok at 20.72mpg. Towing will cut that down to 11 or 12mpg.

I don't like the current pricing or what appears to be a continuing upward spiral, but we're not going to stay home, I/we will just change our spending habits to accommodate our wanderlust.

Happy travels guys

Roger
