That's also for diesel fuel will. Gasoline is highly flammable and explosive whereas Diesel is not.

After the Hurricane hit us last year it slowed us down.But nobody here was doing anything anyway.I figure the price will go back up to close to what it was here last year [3.29 93 oct] It will not effect my trips out of town but on the local lake I prob want be just riding just for the hell of it .We also boat every weekend from April to Oct.

Saudis don't think they need to help! OK, next time Iran or some other country invades SA or Kuwait, they can take care of it themselves. They sure seem to have short memories when it comes to saved their asses in the past several years!

...And Bush is meeting with King Fahd as I type this bearing gifts of 20 billion worth of JDAM's. As a Gulf War Vet it pisses me off.

Then on the other side you have the Democrats blocking drilling in our country, the building of refineries and the use of shale (sp) oil. The Dem's want the economy to suffer because they know it will give them a better chance this November. Higher gas and food prices play into their strategy. Politicians are all worthless IMO.

So $128 dollars for a barrel today (05-16-08).
I just don't get it !! back in the early 70's they were sitting in line at the pumps giving a limit on purchasing gasloine at 85 cents a gallon because of shortages.The scare was on.
Now its reason after reasons, excuse after excuses.
I don't buy it.These prices per gallon needs to level off and help put confidence back in the way we enjoy our sport.This is danger zone now.

I spoke to someone I know who works at a local refinery today... I asked him about supply... He told me that the refinery he's working at has cut supply output..

I asked him why the heck would they do that???? He said because the company isn't selling enough...... Hmmmmm...

What the Democrats want long term is perpetual rationing of resources. In their world, everyone gets the same amount of everything. Hard work for more doesn't count for anything.

No less time on the water. Just a lot more floating than running. I am moving closer to some of my preferred destinations.
