gas prices this summer
Got me thinking yesterday about the price of gas. filled up the pickup in the morning otw to work and paid $2.93/gal. when I went by going out to dinner last night, price was up to $3.04. amazing jump in 12 hours.
thought it would be interesting to post up what you are paying currently(along with octane grade for those that use premium) and where you think gas will be this summer.....
not to exclude mmandly, but let's stick to gas, not diesel :)
I use 85/87, whatever's at the pump- paid $2.93 last fillup.
I see 89 midgrade for the boat at $3.55 mid-summer and $4.05 at the marina...
Dang we were at 3.43 last week , now its 3.65
3.39 this morning for regular
Dammit man LOL

Diesel is just as important really because i gotta get the boat to the water LOL. 3.84 June 3.99
$3.35 about an hour ago. I think it will be around $3.50 here this summer. It's an election year.
My bet is the current administration will try and manipulate the market to drive the price of regular gasoline close to the $3.00 level prior to the election.

$3.38 for 87 yesterday when I stopped. Hope it stays under $4 this summer so we don't all go broke following our passions. $3/gal would be great!
I think i recall a thread simular to this last year or the year before talking about fuel prices when they were around 4 a gallon in most places. The best thing about last summer when i was paying 3.90 a gallon is that so few boats were always out. LOL. Raise the fuel price a little and more weekenders stay home. Raise it a little more and only the serious riders will be on the water LOL.
Eigher way the boat Fuel budget is already at 1200 and i still got 3 to 4 months to keep throwing change in there lol.
3.29 +/- 10 cents for 87 here in Houston, TX. Since we pretty much make all the gas here we should get it super cheap...
3.15 - 3.30 Fluxuates daily. I bet we are around 3.30 - 3.45 for the summer.
