One thing.... if fuel reaches high enough maybe you won't need campground reservations due to lack of crowds. So when you do get to go it'll be a better quality time for you

And don't blame me for the high cost of fuel because I don't get anymore$$$ when the price goes up.

So, between the 10 mpg F350 and the Honda, the gas costs are much better, averaging overall.
We really won't cut down on any of our trips.
We should be on the preferred customer list with the oil companies for the amount we spend on fuel.
It's just part of what we do for fun, ride quads, motorcycles, and camp.

I chose an F450 as my daily driver, so I am already used to dropping 150 bucks a week into the pig.
I won't be surprised to hit 200 a week by summer.
But what the hey, we were up skiing a couple of weeks ago and I saved a couple hundred bucks because we used the camper instead of a condo, so I'm even steven. Good thing I promote my company wherever I go.

Diesel here today is $4.25 US per US gallon or 1.10 Can per liter. Needless to say I will drive the 3 miles to Sumas to fill up.
BTW I re-wrote my conversion program (MS Excel) to handle the Canadian dollar being worth more than the US dollar as it is right now (1 Can Dollar = $1.02 US)

They want to double the size of the Upgrader so we see the fastest price increases known to mankind.

I just got the new CAR AND DRIVER magazine, I think its labled April 2008, staff writer Patrick Bedard has a one page piece regarding the price of diesel in the USA and why he thinks diesel is now more than gas and why it will become more so. It envolves the difference in US and rest of the world refineries (Catalytic vs. Hydro cracking) and how each process yields a distinct ratio of gas to diesel. An interesting read.
Probably wont affect too much. But I'm going to be in a bad mood for a long time.

I have to say when I bought my Diesel truck in 2000, fuel was 30 cents cheaper than regular. Diesel was always cheaper. Now........it is more then premium......Personally it is all a scam as the gas companies claim highest profits in history....
