While the attached pointer is not directly or entirely directed at $5 a gallon fuel, it DOES well address the peripheral issues of the economy that governs it:

Here is one way we could solve the high rising gas prices. Oil in this country is sent over seas, and then we buy it back from OPEC. So when the Arabs raise the cost per barrel we simply divert oil leaving this country, back into the country and keep it here for our use. When the Arabs lower the price per barrel, we increase the flow again.

Well, diesel is only 90 cents away from that $5 mark...

'course, when it drops back 10 cents from whatever the high ends up being, some will be overjoyed that the "price dropped"...

Well, we've got an 8,600 mile family trip planned in a few weeks at approx. 8.6 mpg towing. We were supposed to do this last fall, but noooo, I had to stay at work for a few more months. Grumble grumble...

We are not happy either but are not about to give up rv'ing over it. We will take shorter trips and spend more time at each destination. DW is scheduled for surgery to remove a cancerous kidney so long hauls are completely out of the question.

Fuel and everything else

The problem is not going to be so much the price of fuel as it is everything else, unfortunately the price of everything is tied to the price of fuel; tires, parts, food, clothing, etc...but like most of you I think life will go on.

Imho traveling in an RV will still be cheaper then flying and staying in a hotel for a family no matter how high the price of gas goes

We have to change the value of question now. It already has reached 5.00/Gal in some South LA County areas. So anyone want to go now for 7.00/Gal?

Ya,Know...they always says it will rise dramatically so that when it stops short of the astronomical figure we will be relieved instead of outraged. The last time gas hit 3.50 to 4.00 dollars a gallon the country nearly collapsed. Maybe it's time we start using are own oil and let the rest of the world fend for themselves. Washington could cap the price of oil if they wanted to for the sake of the good ol' USA.

And, BTW, there were still plenty of Canadians in Florida last March when the wife and I were down there on vacation from Massachusetts.
