Luckily Steve, you don't have to tow far in Texas to have a great time! Hurry up and buy a trailer! Oh, and a tow vehicle.

Nope, different tow vehicle. 14-16 mpg with a Cummins is do-able (2003-06). Some of the turbodiesel SUV's are even better. Travel speed of 60 or less to minimize aerodynamic resistance. A bit of trip planning the day before (or earlier) to eliminate parasitic drag on the drivers mind. Smoothly-traveled known distances from point to point.

There is now 3 things you can count on. Death, taxes and higher gas prices.

I think you are on to the real issue, but we probably shouldn't go there on this forum. There are Moderators you know.......

After all, we could all enjoy the bounty that Louisiana and the rest of the Gulf states have recently enjoyed: oil for free, right there in the water and on the beach!

Seriously, given global consumption trends, what we're seeing is the free market (cough) in action - more people want to burn gas, so the price goes up. Gas prices will climb - the only way that won't happen is a global economic catastrophe, ignoring someone discovering working cold fusion next week.

For those of us not full-timing, the amount of fuel we burn on vacation is likely less than we use during the rest of the year. Slowing down when on vacation will help save fuel, too; my truck gets much better mileage pulling between 55 (the trailer limit here in CA) and 60 than trying to blast along at 65 or 70. It is also safer...

Yes, no doubt, but I'm having trouble interpreting that "cough".

But here's another thought....when demand outstrips supply, one of the things that can be done is.....wait for it.....wait for it......INCREASE SUPPLY!

Now, who would have thunk it?

The US has about 2% of the world's oil reserves - and consumes more than 20% of the world's oil production.

There is no way the US can produce enough to isolate ourselves from the world market for oil; we don't have the oil. Even if we could, why would the owners of that oil do so?

Fuel is going to get more expensive. We cannot find and drill enough (either the US or the entire world) to bring oil prices down significantly; the price will go up as the demand increases.

You are right, "There is no way the US can produce enough to isolate ourselves from the world market", if we don't try or look for oil deposits. Additionally, your statement of the US having only 2% of the worlds oil is out of date. Bakken Oil Shale Map - North Dakota- Bakken Shale Formation
