Re: F... gas prices

My boat has a 160 gallon fule tank which to fill up would cost me around $430. I only fill up the boat when I'm going to keep it in the water and the cost of gas at a marina is about 50 cents more per gallon. Filling it up to just run around the river some does not make sense because each extra gallon weighs about 8 pounds of extra weight.

Re: F... gas prices

Gas went up 40 cents in the last week around here.

Have you ever tried carrying around a gallon of milk? It is not light.

Re: F... gas prices

I thought Bush & Chenney drove up the gas prices because they were big oil guys. So why is gas now at $3.00?

Re: F... gas prices

A couple weeks ago I was paying 3 bucks for a gallon of gas. Stopped at my local gas station yesterday as me and co. were leaving for the Skins game and noticed it was 3.30. WTF?

Yeah it's creeping up again. But it's not like it went down that far any way.

I don't know about that. I think a few Warpath posters (or former posters in the case of joetheismanfan) could qualify as the densest thing on earth. Certainly, we have a few in the top 10.

Re: F... gas prices

Well no need to start a new thread so. F*ck Gas prices. Funny now that Bush and Chenney are gone the left is pretty quiet about the sharp rise in gas prices. I filled up yesterday and it cost $78.00. I'm sure this will cut down on how much I use my boat this year and not many free rides for friends. We will all have to chip in on gas.

Re: F... gas prices

bring back the good old days. my first gallon of gas was $0.30, my how times have changed.

Fortunately I don't have to do much driving anymore, sometimes thirty miles a week. When I burn the first quarter tank I fill up again.
