Deseil in Montana, and North Dakota. 75cents more than 4 weeks before!

My plans remain the same. When one considers the total cost of RVing, fuel cost gets put into a more correct perspective. Nobody likes how fuel prices are determined, but for me, it damn the fuel prices, full speed ahead. Well, full speed up to 60 MPH.

No kids at home, motorcycle, Georgie Boy ready to go and fuel is $4.00 per gal. We're going anyhow. New tile in the bathroom can wait. If it's a pleasure that you worked for over a period of time,Go! We converted to coal at home and tried to save every way that we could,but gas is still a big expense. We both still work so we are at an advantage but I have retired friends that have adjusted their spending and we have learned from them. We are going to take the MH out of storage this weekend and I admit I feel like a kid at Christmas...I can't wait. Maybe shorter trips, but we're going,TomKaren

I sure hope you aren't hoping for the good old days when he first took office. The world economy and banking system was in a meltdown. People were actually wondering if they should go out and take all their money out of the bank. Gas was so low because no one was going anywhere or buying anything. I sure don't want to revisit that year again, does anyone???

Leaving for Key West tomorrow will try and plan fuel stops to save a few cents when we can. Won't make that much difference. The sad fact is there is an abundance of oil with the mild winter and plent of gas. If it continues to go up we will cancel the trip to Myrtle Beach this summer and just stay near home. Cape May here we come.

Actually, because of that drop in price I was able to afford a nice trip down the length of the entire Oregon Coast for a little over $300. Another commodities dive on fuel would allow me to actually extend my trip further because the original distance would no longer be consuming 62% of my budget.

I'd go back. Since then, I've seen a 25% increase in health care premiums along with larger copays, no raise in my retirement check for three years and an 80% drop in my investment income Being from NV, I've watched my home value decrease by 60%. It's been great

You ain't seen NOTHIN' yet - the worse is yet to come...

The "smile and be happy" crowd keep laughing at me when I keep saying that - but sure enough, it just keeps on getting worse...

Price of fuel for our "Land Yachts" is likely to be a minor concern in the face of FAR higher priority serious issues headed our way - but perhaps for some at least, maybe better to pay the price for RV fuel and TRAVEL - while those dollars at least still bring SOME measure of happy memories...

The America we knew and loved just a few short decades ago is dead and gone - and NOT likely to return - no matter HOW much we wish otherwise...

Yeah - laugh now - but REMEMBER later!

When gas hit $4 last year and people cut back the price went down to a little over $3 a gal.... Make no mistake if the big 2 don't sell gas here they will drop the price. What do you have to lose?
