250 gal X 3.60 (cost) = $900

Filled the dually up($75) and ran on the 1/2 tank in the boat.We hung out at Fairview Beach on Sat. and spent the night by Pirate's Den.Spent as much Sat. night at Pirate's Den as it would have taken to fill the boat UP!!! But we had a good time and that's all that matters

Ran Goose Bay Marina out of regular @ $3.09/gal after putting 20 gallons in one tank and 25 gallons in another tank. They had no mid-grade, so we finished putting a total of 100 gallons with high grade @ $3.29/gal. By the end of Saturday they had no fuel left. Managed to run all weekend on what we had and still have 1/4 tanks. Total = $325.

We were at your end of the river most of the weekend. We were looking for your 47' floating apartment.
Stayed at Colton's Point Marina Sat night, and at the Lighthouse Restaurant in Monroe Bay Sunday night.
Colonial Beach Yacht Club is where I got the gas Monday @ $2.99 for 89 octane.

Got this in a e-mail......

Every time you fill up the car, you can avoid putting more money into
the coffers of Saudi Arabia. Just buy from gas companies that don't
import their oil from the Saudis.
Nothing is more frustrating than the feeling that every time I
fill-up the tank, I am sending my money to people who are trying to kill me,
my family, and my friends.

I thought it might be interesting for you to know which oil companies
are the best to buy gas from and which major companies import Middl

DO NOT BUY GAS FROM:

Eastern oil:
Shell............................ 205,742,000 barrels
Chevron/Texaco......... 144,332,000 barrels
Exxon/Mobil............... 130,082,000 barrels
Marathon/Speedway... 117,740,000 barrels
Amoco............................62,231,000 barrels

If you do the math at $30/barrel, these imports amount to over $18
BILLION!

HERE ARE SOME LARGE COMPANIES THAT DO NOT IMPORT MIDDLE EASTERN OIL;

Citgo......................0 barrels
Sunoco..................0 barrels
Conoco...................0 barrels
Sinclair..................0 barrels
BP/Phillips..............0 barrels
Hess.......................0 barrels
ARC0.......................0 barrels

All of this information is available from the Department of Energy
and each is required to state where they get their oil and how much they
are importing.
