We are going to be there real soon. The biggest problem I see is in the US our entire URBAN/Suburban master plan formulated after world war ii is predicated on cheap oil. Well oil isnt cheap anymore. We need a major overhaul in thinking now.

Tom the Prophet...

Took me awhile to find this, but finally did! I was moving files from my old computer which is now DW's to my new one, and there it was, lucky I spotted it as it was being copied so I knew where to find it:

Oh and for all you Diesel users, whats the price of veg oil state-side. Old diesel engines can often run on a mix with veg oil. I tried it on my old 4x4 with a 33% mix and it was fine. You DO need to do some research though, especially if running in a cold area. If you want to know more, PM me.

I am paying 4.15 here in Traverse City (Northern lower) Michigan. Fortunately I drive car that gets 22 mpg so I'm okay, but I've cut way down on the driving and find that I can lump several errands and trips into one. I filled my tank from empty the day I flew in, May 20 and I still have a little better than half a tank left.

I spend the summer in an RV park and it's filled with huge, expensive motorhomes. These people have driven a long way to get here and drive Deisel pushed rigs. Deisel is averaging 5.50 per gallon according to them and almost all motorhomes get about 6 to 8 miles per gallon. I guess if you can afford a million dollars plus for a motorhome, who cares what the gas price is???
I'm staying put as long as I can.

It's getting higher down here in south Texas. Are hybrids really offering a better gas milage? My hubby's car broke down and he's looking into a hybrid.

We are still paying around $3.89. I talked to my dad on Father's Day. He said they (Vista, CA) are paying something like $4.59 for the cheap stuff. I think he said diesel is close to (or maybe over?) $5.00.
