That and impressing the crowds at the local "cheap" pump while you're still shelling out the washingtons by the fist full.

I'm hopeful on gas prices this season. It's an election year and the party in office can't afford $4 unleaded at the corner station.
I HAD 2 excursions til today. sold the gas pig, kept the 6.0.

I parked the Excursion in the corner of the shop for the winter. It sucks when it costs nearly $50 just to fill the TDI. Our plans for buying another offshore are definitely on hold as well- as much as we've loved the sport, we're getting pretty close to sticking a fork in it.

Ok, so when someone needs their boat moved I hope that no one will complain of the price due to the fuel

I posted about this last week. I spend quite a few bucks a month on truckload freight. In 2.5 years, fuel prices are up about a buck fifty a gallon but in that same time my rates are up by a buck a mile. If you're getting 8mpg, cost increases should only be 19 cents a mile, based on that $1,50 fuel increase.

The freight brokers keep telling me it's all fuel cost. My calculator says different.

UPS $13 to ship a 4 lb., $30 value 8x8x14" box to eastern Mi. from NY today...

more "oppurtunists" taking advantage of the current "climate" and the fact that as a whole we're too fokking lazy in this country to ask questions, or better yet...

demand aswers! Answers that make sense!

I fill up the Donzi at the same gas station all the time (cuz its the only one i can get into) an the same kid was there all last summer. He would have to re-set my card like three times for one fill up. One time, as it ticked past seven hundred, the thought occured to me. . . . . if this was a gas bill for my house or some other kinda utility I'd be pissesd . . . . .
