Maybe we should go back to the steam engine .... then we could start "burning Bushes".

Or maybe a covered wagon and a team of oxen or horses? The true first RV.

Around Central PA diesel has been bouncing up and down like a yo-yo. It has now hit $2.35/Gal at most station. Time to park the truck and get a Yugo

There is is only one way that Americans and Canadians could break this strangle hold that the oil companies have on us as consumers, and it ain't gonna happen. That would be for all of us to boycott one major oil company until they had to lower prices in order to stay in business. Perhaps then we would see real competition return the market place and break the back of the "silent cartel" now in place.

Our prices were at 2.09 last week and now down around 1.99, but the roads are worse than when fuel WAS at 1.00!!

I don't think it will productive to blame some other country for our fuel prices. We have been the hog at the trough for too long. We should have developed alternative renewable energy and fuel sources with our technology. We still can, and just might, with these higher prices. Our farmers could keep us all on the road, if we spent some our financial resources on the problem. Only you and I can make our politicians move in the right direction.

Our gas prices here never really went down. The lowest they'd gotten was $1.96. I paid Sunday night $1.97 and by 8am Monday the same station was $2.09. I've seen them raise prices around here sometimes twice in a day. The hubby uses kerosene and that's been $2.30 here for a while too-but across the river it's been $1.99.

I plan to travel as long as I can reasonably afford it. We all choose to some extent where we will spend our discretionary money. We have bought RV's because we like the convenience and the way of life. Many of us will just have to choose to forego something else to fill the tank occasionally. As an earlier poster alluded to: Oil is a finite product which will either run out some day or be priced so high none of us commoners can afford it (if we also want to eat and be clothed). There is still a lot out there. How much, no one knows for sure, but some that is as yet untapped. These sources must be made available, with minimal impact on the environment. Someday an alternative to petroeum products will be made price-competitive and the vehicle builders will figure out how to use it in RV's. Until then, use your discretion. Anyway, if we don't use the RV's, they decay. I plan to enjoy mine and give up something else.
