    I saw a station in Orlando go from $3.19 at 7:30 AM. to $3.28 at noon, to $3.35 at 6:00 PM. First time I have seen to price increased in the same day.

    This is only the begining. Tree huggers everywhere are dancing and the dems couldn't be happier while the rest of us struggle to fill our tanks and pay for food as the price of everything goes thru the roof.

    I've just been whining about this a lot lately. I bought gas at 3.16/gallon just about 3 days ago. This morning it was 3.29/gal. Tonight as I drove in to work I noticed it was 3.39/gal. This REALLY ticks me off!! :mad:

    How come we never see the gas prices FALL this fast, if at all?

    I do ride a bike most of the summer around town, usually pulling my granddaughter in one of those trailers. I've also hauled groceries in that trailer, too. But my work is 12 miles from my home along some country roads. AND I work the midnight shift. I wish I could ride a horse everywhere I go. I'd love that.

    Warm up the HD

    The Harley goes in the shop on Saturday, got a few bugs to fix. Got a feeling I'll be riding it a lot soon as the weather agrees.
    Yesterday I filled up, $3.45 for reg gas. Wonder what it'll be next time I need to fill er up?
    I keep hearing hints of $5 a gal depending on what happens in Libya. Be hard to live with that. :(

    Remember that the Socialist in Chief said way back when, that energy prices must necessarily skyrocket. He and the Eco-nads are loving this.

    Then again, Chairman Maobama has the American taxpayer to pick up his travel costs.

    It was 3.24 on horizon drive here in GJ CO today. I saw it as cheap as 2.99 but that stuff is nothing but water!!! Scarey part is I would almost guarantee that its going to hit 5 a gallon by the end of the summer. Looks like the hunting truck will have to stay parked for the summer...dang it I love that truck!!!!:eek:

    What galls my arse is that diesel fuel is more per gallon that premium gas here now. The last time fuel went up in price, about 3 years ago, and I have the reciepts to prove it, that diesel was at $5.50 per gallon. I remember that one day I dorve by a station and saw that diesel was $4.99 per gallon and took a U-turn a coupe blocks away and went there to fill up.

    I'm a contractor and I really don't carry the cost of fuel for my larger trucks, the customer that I contract to pays for it. When fuel price goes up the customer pays for it in these trucks. I don't as I include it in overhead costs on my bids. As far as personal gas vehicles goes, well... I add a good contingency amount for that.

    I'm more worried about our work fleet than my personal vehicle. With Diesel fuel so expensive, it's costing us nearly $80k a week to keep all 55 diesel-thristy Power-chokes on the road and running.

    All you can do is jack your rates to compensate for the fuel prices.
