Probably not that much.

But dropping the boat in for a quick cruise around the bay after work will probably not happen.

$300 to fill the tank ads up quickly.

WOT even if I have to refinance my home. I refuse to slow down or compromise the quality or quantity of my alcoholic beverages.....

Worrying about higher gas prices stresses me out. So I need to boat MORE often.
