    Default Fuel at $4 a gallon ? How will this impact your lake/river trips this summer ?

    Watching one of the morning news programs today, according to AAA , gasoline will hit $4 a gallon by summer ( $4.50 or MORE in Cali ) How many of you will do less trip's to the river this year? We've got our boat stored at our river house in Parker, so we save a TON on towing the 400 + mile round trip every time. I figure I'm still looking at $350 to $400 for fuel for a weekend outing, X our usual 16 to 20 trips = HFS !!

    Default Gas Price

    The sound of $250 to fill the boat does make me a little sick to my stomach! Will spend more time floating and less time on the gas.

    I would do a dance at $250 to fill. Small boat single screw=$400 plus to fill at
    projected prices. THAT is enough to make you physically ill.
    The best therapy you ask???? More throttle

    150 Gallons @ 4.50 = $675.00 OUCH, I guess I will just have to buy cheap beer and not stop for derailers @ $22 each.. Or get a 2nd girlfriend to help out... HHHMMMM tuff choice!!

    The gas prices going up just make the explanation of B.O.A.T more understandable..

    It won't make a diff.
    Might eat one less dinner out or something like that if I feel like saving some $$. But, the boating will not suffer. You think filling the boat sucks. Fill the motor home first to get the boat there is what stings!!!

    Boating will not suffer, but I may have to cut down on making Jello shots.
