In Albuquerque I paid $4.54 for diesel yesterday (Smith's food store 5 cent discount)......other places were as high as $4.80. Gasoline is $3.80 to $4.00.
We haven't been anywhere with the Airstream for a while, so I don't know what propane is selling for.

Still the same today.

Hi, my last/previous post on subject #1191, on page 86, Dated 6-14-2008 is the same price as shown today. Long time without any changes; Hope this means that it will go down.

That's a nice website thanks for posting it. I think a lot of people have had the thought of downsizing, or at least trading for fuel economy. It's really not worth it unless the vehicle you're trading in is worth almost as much as what you're buying. With a lot of commuting you might save $150 per month in fuel cost. We only drive the Durango when we're towing or on vacation due to fuel cost, so it should last for many years to come. When I'm ready for another car in about 3 years fuel economy will be a huge decision making factor though.

I think Charlie's right. I'm hardly using the Tundra, though I drive it every week or so somewhere because any vehicle has to be driven from time to time or things start to go bad.

We've had SUV's for more than 20 years. They fit Colorado's road and climate demands and are extremely versatile, but in the future I hope Toyota makes a fuel efficient one that has the strength of a truck. I am unsure the Highlander is that since it's a car underneath, not a truck, and hybrid version is built for speed, not much fuel economy and costs much too much.

darn.... I don't get it. I had to take the truck to New Jersey yesterday to make a sales call with one of my saleman. Regular pump your own at the Shell Station at home was $4.69 and 57 miles away in NJ it was $4.03 and by law they have to pump the gas. What's up with that?
