Not that this isn't all very interesting but, I'm interested in the original topic which was whether the recent rise in gas (or diesel) prices has forced you to change your plans.
Mostly, I don't want to see this thread turn into a nasty political debate that then has to be shut down.
I'm off the soapbox now.

In todays news....

Question. After computing for inflation and the cost of living, is gas more expensive today or 25 years ago?

Part of the response. Gasoline is still cheaper today in inflation-adjusted dollars than it was 25 years ago.

I am not selling the RV. I will have to take a few less trips but we are going to keep on. I don't want a place at the lake. I like to go places and see different things. I was going to get a new truck this winter but it may have to wait awhile.

I was on a lake for 7 years and got restless been moving ever since. That was back in 86, 60 kids ago. Only way to travel and see what they were all happy to see. Twins on the way to College this fall coming to Tenn in July my wife and I are celebrating our 50 yrs this year and will be going on four other trips to celebrate.
Life is short your gone for a long time when the time comes, had a Doc give me 30 more years three years ago, he said and I plan to live it to the best of my ability. "007"

We will not stop our plans for the summer. We will however do more boondocking than we had planned to offset the increase. We are fortunate to be able to stay at our marina parking lot when we use our boat and most of the events I work give us free camping and electric. Scotty.

We are not changing our travel plans this summer. We did not have any long trips planned, all of them less than 500 miles. If prices stay the way they are or go higher will definitely have to rethink the idea of pushing 22,000 lbs. plus down the highway. Maybe a Harley with a side car....

Well unfortunately, we still have to attend my wifes family reunion in New Mexico which means we'll have to buy 300 gal of diesel to get there and back. After that it'll be really close by for the rest of the year or not at all.

On a serious note, for those of you who are planning to make changes in your summer travel plans, I would wait a bit before cancelling any campground reservations. As volatile and political as this issue is, it might very well change over night. I have already seen some service stations pull back their pricing a few cents; not much, but it shows a little nervousness in light of all the outrage and attention.

Let's keep the pressure on...

Wolfman, we haven't cancelled our CG reservations yet, but I don't think Big Oil is going to pay much attention to anything we do.

We are staying closer to home, probably no long trip. If prices go up to much we will be forced to go seasonal in a campground. I just dont think I can give it up altogether.
