Being on a fixed income has forced us to forgo a spring time tour through Texas & New Mexico and attend several rallys - one in New Mexico and the other in Texarkana,AR. Plus re-thinking attendance at some campouts/rallys in Minnesota. This is just to ensure to have enough money for gas to attend a convention in Kalispell, MT (my birthplace) during the month of July. It gets darn expensive forking over $100-200 every day for gas just getting there and back.

Both my wife's parents and mine lived into their 90's so we expect the same. Gotta make sure there will be enough retirement $$$ to make it.

To; All who have answer to question;;

I'm looking for GPS software and accessories for a laptop that includes campground info, marked on screen, like the old AAA trip-tiks used to have, fuel stops and all other info we need and/or use while rving.

Done some looking , but I can't find anything..

Thanks in advance for your help

Adjusted for inflation, gasoline is cheaper today than any year since 1977, execpt 1988. That doesn't help at the pump though. Bio-fuels - We think that is a way to become less Dependant on foreign imports. The Jan 30, 2006 issue of Indiana Farm Bureau Bulletin says the national convention is opposing the "federal bio-fuels tax incentives measure" for importing bio-fuels. How's that for a kick in the *ss? BTW, the longer we sit on it the less voice we have.Phone, write, visit, pester even, your elected representatives and tell them how you will vote next election.

I don't follow this. When I started driving in the early 1970's gas was around 25 cents a gallon and a bag boy (the person who packed your groceries into bags for you) at the local supermarket made around $3.50 an hour. Now gas costs ten times as much but I don't believe the bag boy is making over $35 and hour. The 1970's bag boy could buy 14 gallons of gas for 1 hours wage while today's bag boy will only get around 3 or 4 gallons for an hours wage so I don't really follow how today it would be considered cheaper. I know that I tend to look at things a bit differently but this is how it looks from where I sit.

I need help figuring out the high price of fuel. If the United States imports approximately 60% of its oil requirement from Canada why are the prices so affected when someone in the middle east sneezes?

Let's face it, fuel cost will not be coming down. Diesel is worse than gasoline and will remain the same.

Our congress (both parties) only care for themselves.

Many of our children will be coming back for help. Mark my work it is coming, for some it is already here.
