Default Media Hype isn't going to help fuel prices

Front page on AOL this morning, front page in the local newspapers, constant chatter on the morning radio shows........... this just 'fuels' the fire for upcoming crazy and ridiculous gas pricing for the upcoming summer.
And expect record profits to be reported by the majors, again..............
Will it change the way and how much you boat?

Maybe it's time to buy stock in an oil company or 2.
The price may change how often we take long runs with the boat. We will still got out as often as we can though.

No kidding. Maybe a good summer to be with a single or between boats.

Change the way I boat?

I doubt it
Like true smokers would pay $10.00 a pack if need be.
Boaters will still pay. Something else will have to suffer

Sould not affect Too Old too much then... Not much difference driving back and forth to the shop with the truck.

Can you make a boat run on fry grease?

Yes you can if it is a diesel

I can see all the OSO gatherings with everyone trailering their boats and trying to park them in a Hooters lot.

Pretty much all we have seen on the news this past week. Talk about how high the prices will get this year. Already higher than last year this time.
Will not stop me from boating, may limit the long trips a bit. Looks like a lot of rafting up and sipping sodas. Still hoping to make it to the Sunsatin rally in July.
