    Gas prices jumped $ .10 per gallon On August 21st at about 10am. This is just in time for the extended Labor Day week (one week before)- Many schools start late August and people go North this weekend.

    Avg Unleaded about 1.75
    Premium about 1.93

    What changed overnite? NOTHING!!!!!!!!

    This is Petroleum company greed.

    Due to the gas prizes diesel engines will probably be more and more popular in boats in the us, just as they are in scandinavia.

    Diesel engines are more efficient and we will see bigger diesels on sterndrive in the future.

    Take a look at this article I found and look att the fuel consuption on each engine...

    Latest new I have heard regarding diesel engines is that volvo is comming with a new diesel wch will produse 415hp at 3600rpm and it will be available on sterndrives.

    Where I live the gas prizes are aprox 4,85us$ for a gallon of gas.

    1 gallon of diesel is 2,68us$.

    thats the main reason that you see alot of diesel powered boats in scandinavia..

    $1.99 for 93 at the marina this weekend, but they said they haven't raised their prices yet. The prices on the road seem to have levelled off for the moment.

    We paid $2.89 on Sat. in Long Beach and the ***** gave us all kinds of attitude because the boat was to loud. She didn't have any problem snatching the $400.00 dollars out of my hand though.

    Worse than that is the outrageous life insurance premiums we have to pay so we can afford to pay the DEATH TAXES!!(inheritance) That is such crap, we have already paid tax on that money umteen times.
