It's after Memorial Day and usually prices drop a bit. Crude is down, more than $10/bbl if I recall correctly and wholesale gas is going down a little too. Gas hasn't kept up with crude's price rise, so it'll stay up for a while, then drop slowly if past year's experience is duplicated.

the last time we had the roller coaster here, the prices dipped but never dropped as did the rest of the country. i have also noted that in most cases, mid grade is .10 a gallon over regular and premium is .20 over regular. so much for the old story about how premium costs more because it takes more oil to produce it!

Yesterday Diesel was over $5 a gallon.... today they simply took the sign down. I am sure they are afraid the customers might throw things! The rest of the prices, way to high!

Our fuel here has come down a few pennies but it would be my luck that after writing this it will go back up today. Reg gas $ 3.81 and diesel $ 4.59 .

RaceTrac dropped their price a penny yesterday. When that happens, usually, the next day the price will jump six pennies/gallon!

Passed a station yesterday here in San Luis Obispo (central Calif. coast) with regular for $4.45. Yikes! I NEVER thought I'd see gas at $4.50... now it's just around the corner.

But, back in the "made up" fuel shortage in the early 70's, the club did a survey.

The question was, "How much would you pay for fuel, before you would quit Airstreaming?"

The answer was surprising.

That survey came up with $5.00 per gallon, and that was 35 years ago.

So, the question now becomes the same.

How much will Airstream owners today, be willing to pay for fuel, before they would quit towing?

Andy
