Angry slow gas pumps

remember when gas went over 1.00 a gallon, and the old dials on the pump would be spinning so fast that you would not be able to read the numbers? well now we are at 2.00 a gallon and you can see every penny pass by. i don't think i am going to boat this summer, not because of the price of fuel, but because i don't have the time to fill the tank.

anyone else notice this?

amen brother. last year i paid dock gas prices because it is kind of a hassle to pull my boat for fuel. not this year. trailer is gonna be permanently hooked to the truck this summer. i guess on the up side is if i do that i will be paying about what i did last year. last years dock pricing will be on par with gas station prices this year, bout two bucks a gallon. hate to see what fuel on the water is gonna be i'm guessing 2.50-2,75 a gallon .


hey i just noticed you are in petosky. i do a car show at Bay Harbor every year. also ski up there a bit at the boynes.

It does take 20 minutes to fill up. Not including docking it.

yeah, the car show in bay harbor is a good one. lots of people from all over come to see it, but gets very little local coverage. they almost secretive about it.
