Default Washington State (gas prices are nuts)

I live 4hrs east of Seattle and was at the latter for some biz stuff yesterday. Should have flown over and rented a car for the day would have been cheaper (even with the 18% king county tax on rental cars). Diesel at $3.009
was the Lowest Price I could find in downtown Seattle and higher grade fuels all starting to hit that price mark as well.....

This I hope is not a sign of how high the summer prices are headed.....

we are hovering around 4.oo CND (3.40 USD) for reg and near 4.60 for premium on the street. Marina prices are generally .60 higher here. OUCH

Nothing I'm looking for my next boat, either a early Top Gun or Bullet is the plan. Plus I'll be busy during seafair anyway so could'nt go even with anything....

Got gas on the water last Friday, 93 $2.99. I got very lucky because my local marina is selling 89 for $3.29. Now the 2.99 marina is up to $3.09. Gas on land is $2.69 for 87 and 2.98 for 93.

I ordered my Fountain 38TE in July last year right before Katrina when gas on the water was $1.99 for 89 and $2.29 for 93 at the most and sometimes it was less than that.

I am now boating less than ever.

Wish I could but the Dems have not yet made it so non-citizens can vote!!!! A bill is pending that might make it possible for us alien residents to vote in county, municipal and state elections though... Why not felons can vote in Washington State..
