Gas $2.37 for 87 oct. yesterday, $2.47 for 87 today, in White Bluff, Tn. It has been like a roller coaster for the past 2 weeks. Got down to $2.26, one day, up to $2.54, then back down again, now is headed back up. This is getting ridiculous, but not to worry, congress is checking into it.

Here is a good one for thought:

A fellow I work just got back from Vensuela. In working with our local Rep there he was astonished when they stopped to fill his fifty gallon diesel tank...... the Rep was complaining about it costing him almost seven US Dollars to fill it up.

What?.......... I do not get that a good percentage of the fuel we get here in the US is refined there, and we pay three dollars for the same thing they get for nineteen cents. Somebody is making a lot of dough on this side of the pond.

You need to look no further than the Exon corporation. There is no competition in the petroleum industry these days. We are in Mexico right now and diesel is $1.90 per gallon.

Everything comes with a price. When big business puts millions of dollars behind a political campaign they expect a return on their dollar.

If you voted in the last election because you wanted to deny gays equal rights under the law and women the right to choose for themselves what was best for their body, you'll probably get what you wanted, but it's coming with a price. Denying others freedom is never Free.

I'm in the Tampa area, diesel is $2.559 and gas is $2.479 at the Flying J at the Seffner exit. Gas will soon catch up with diesel prices at the rate it's going up.

Vegascpl if you come to North Carolina, you will find a Democrat Governor who is taxing us on anything he can think of. Our taxes on fuel are one of the highest in the country. Either side you go with you find a bunch of crooks, who care little for the working man.

Here in SC. only a couple of weeks ago it was $2.08, now $2.48.
I can't afford to spend $100 per day on fuel, so we spend a month in each location and use the car to explore. 34.4mpg in the car is better than 7.5 in the RV. If the prices get to the $3.40-3.50 point we will drive back here to SC and buy a little Prk model and call it quits.

The younger croud are comming in here in $300,000 Motorhomes ,so I guess they can afford the fuel.

As for the oil companies and the Government, they are all one company. There is no REAL 2-party system to play against each other. They are all one and the same. We have no REAL choice. The next leader has already been chosen and it will be setup so we think the OUR best man won. Our man. Yeh, sure. Just watch what happens next.

We started Fulltimiming at the end of 2004. I guess we missed the glory days of traveling.

It's ok though, because there are getting to be too many people jambing into too few rv parks.

Well, your prices look pretty nice to me..Up here it is $107.9 a litre or $4.89 an imperial gallon...Try filling up your 70 gallon tank with that every day.

<span class="ev_code_BLUE">Yep, Summer's coming!</span>Gas here in Michigan was $2.79 last week. They say it'll hit $3 by summer. It sure seems to be headed that way.

Regular was $2.71.9 in the Houston area.

Once some offical speaks up and says we'll see fuel by a certain price by a certain date...you can bet the oil companies will make sure that we see it happen. We need the officals to staste that we'll be down to $2.00 per gallon in a week and see if that will work!

Ken,

Do you think announcing 25 cents a gallon would work?
