Default Gas prices

With the talk of gas going to $4.oo a gallon, hate to see what they will be this summer on the water. I'm thinking it will be a good time to buy, some good deals on buying a boat.

It's been 4 bucks at my marina for the better part of 2007.
Ya, can't wait to see what it will be like this year.

BUT!!....some people are beginning to think that crude oil price is on the verge of collapse. We shall see.

I remember reading a thread last summer when gas price were $3-$4 on the road. People are willing to spend some serious coin for gas in the boat.

But what the heck you cant take it with ya.

My 44 gallon Excursion fill-ups are over $150. And I have two of them!

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.

About the only good thing about trailering everywhere. Get to fill up with the "cheap" gas.

$1 or $2 more a gallon would not represent a big add percentage wise on the expense of running one of those rigs for a year...
