Talking Gas prices?

Hey what are you paying for gas in your area. Here in Bethel,AK it is $4.38 to
$4.85 a gal. In the villages it's up $7.00 or more a gallon.
I see all these people whinning about $2.80 or less and think lucky buggers.
have big laugh with it also hahahaha. Then see them whine about food price.
A gallon of milk is $5.00,eggs are $4.00a doz.

It's all relative to where you live and what you are used to. There are people in the north east that pay to cross a bridge, here in Tennessee, it's still free!

Our gas prices only go up twice a year here due to the river being frozen for most of the year. Wish we had $3.80 a gal here in southwest. lucky bucks.

Gas Cost

Gas prices aren't near as bad in WA....Much better than CA.

The way I figure, you can take a 8cyl 4x4 and get about 10-14 MPG. If you have a 4cyl, you can double your average mileage. Don't know how it works with them electric cars...Not even sure if jumper cables would work.

I'm ready to try a Nuclear Powered Y Block. Just got ta figure how to cool it. Get 20 years on one Urainium Rod. HAAAA Convert it to steam. It could work. Sure ain't a shortage of water around here.

tugboat in Canada that ran aground and leaking fuel? That captain is in big trouble.

$3.10 here on the road system. I have a 133 gal avaition tank in the rear of my truck and fill it up when in Anchorage. Heck diesel is $0.60 cheaper there and it last for a few months. I also drive a SMALL ford focus to/from work. AT almost 40 mpg it makes a difference.

What is Diesel going for in Cal? Heading that way in Jul for vacation and curious.
