The issue with fuel is that it'll make EVERYTHING increase, truckers gotta bring us supplies, and it's costing more and more.

Crazy thing is...allegedly 2% of oil supply is Russian...

So why this crazy increase? Just another way to screw the American people out of hard earned wages.

The real problem was the crackdown on fossil fuel that Uncle Joe did when he first got in office. If you've been paying attention, gas has doubled since Biden took office, and that was BEFORE the Ukraine stuff took off...

When I moved to AZ in October 2020, gas was $1.99-$2.09. Now it's up to and passing $4.00

Edit: I had to censor myself. Sorry mods, lol. I must be tired, forgot to proofread :LOL:

Was planning on going to CO again if I didn't draw an elk tag here. That is not going to be possible now. I'm expecting gas rationing to come back before summer. FJB!

Now I'm wishing I had a hunting prius instead of my truck :LOL:

I just filled up my "fun" car - that gets ~15mpg @ 4.99 for the premium it requires. So there went about a hundred bucks.
I need to go fill up the boring daily driver Camry that gets ~30mpg and takes regular.

Something tells me that the old camry going to get more miles on it in the foreseeable future.

Also, Trump sucks, and so does Biden - but funny how the minute the current dingleberry took office gas prices has spiked, and the propanda spewing puppets say it has nothing to do with the current administration (yet the prices clearly point otherwise.) At least the former dildo was correct about the importance of being "independent" on energy production. I will be curious to see what backlash happens.

Wow, I wish my daily driver got your fun car's mileage :LOL:. But you gotta use premium, so it evens out I guess

We all just need to get on bicycles. Drive the Prius to the side of the road, and bike to your glassing hills

Well, I have canceled Kansas turkey and Oklahoma hog. Not that I can't afford it, my daughter keeps saying just do it and have fun. I can't have fun when I shell out $300 to fill a tank. I can afford it but do I want to pay it? NO! So let's hope it calms down by Fall and I can go hunt hog.
Some, but not all of this was avoidable. There are not 9K drilling permits out there that are viable. The white house (Joe) and peppermint Patty are delusional. If you have any connection with the oil industry, and I do, they have no clue. They need to be flushed down a disposal well (that is where useless salt water goes). Kansas does not get alot of credit for their oil but I can tell you that a lot of oil and natural gas comes from Kansas.

Sounds like you need a partner to split gas!
The unfortunate other part to these prices is theft is going to exponentially increase. I am glad I have a garage to keep people from prying my fuel doors open.

When I was at the gas station this morning some dude was driving around the place asking for someone to buy him some gas "so he could go get his kids in AJ" - yet he was literally driving in circles between two stations in a Chevy truck wasting gas..... Got a bit snippy when I declined too....lol. Pretty sure this is going to get real common.

I am working on getting my 55 gal drum filled up now, it should be worth it's weight in gold soon...

On a serious note if you have a club card for Safeway you might have enough points to get a reduced price on gas. I got $1.00 off per gallon at one of our regular gas stations here.
