Hi All Fuelish Airstreamers...
Gas is what it is.
We were all committed when we bought our trailers and decided to travel!
We left MI on 11/12... are now in Savannah.
2007 19' Bambi Safari and 2005 Toyota 4-Runner V-8
Averaging 14.4 mph on regular.
Gas (regular) has been around $1.70 most of the trip.
Low was $1.65... high was $1.85.
I'm just thrilled that its not still $4.50 like last summer!
I never would have imagined it would be this low
for our first 6-month-long winter trip. Bonus!
I am very happy and thankful.
I did predict to a friend that I thought oil would return
to below $50 a barrel after it spiked to $1.47.
So glad that it has.... probably won't stay there for long...
We budgeted for gas at $3.30 x about 300 miles per week for the trip.
We've traveled a lot more than that thus far...
needing to be in Orlando by 12/5.
2400 miles so far.... the miles will taper off after Christmas
as we slow the pact of our travels.
If the prices stay where they are,
we'll be well under budget as the weeks go by.
Happy trails to everyone...
Hope to meet some of you on the road some day.
