    Angry slow gas pumps

    remember when gas went over 1.00 a gallon, and the old dials on the pump would be spinning so fast that you would not be able to read the numbers? well now we are at 2.00 a gallon and you can see every penny pass by. i don't think i am going to boat this summer, not because of the price of fuel, but because i don't have the time to fill the tank.

    anyone else notice this?

    amen brother. last year i paid dock gas prices because it is kind of a hassle to pull my boat for fuel. not this year. trailer is gonna be permanently hooked to the truck this summer. i guess on the up side is if i do that i will be paying about what i did last year. last years dock pricing will be on par with gas station prices this year, bout two bucks a gallon. hate to see what fuel on the water is gonna be i'm guessing 2.50-2,75 a gallon .

    hey i just noticed you are in petosky. i do a car show at Bay Harbor every year. also ski up there a bit at the boynes.

    You can never have too much horsepower or money...It's just hard to have both.

    It does take 20 minutes to fill up. Not including docking it.

    yeah, the car show in bay harbor is a good one. lots of people from all over come to see it, but gets very little local coverage. they almost secretive about it.
