We filled up twice. Once going down and once coming back.

Just took a approximately 600 mile trip this past 5 days and it ran us a $125.00.
We just got back yesterday from Indiana and it cost $4.15 per gallon in IL.
Christ! Lol! the room we stayed in cost $150 for two nights and gas was almost equal.
By the way, that was only 15.8 gals. We still had some in the tank.

|Fossboss||Cheapest I see is $4.19 for a gallon. Makes me kinda happy that I work at home and only drive on the weekends pretty much. But it is a lot of driving on the weekends|

1.32 per litre here so that works out to about 5.25 gallon. I cant afford to do any extra driving. whats the point in having an offroad vehicle you cant afford to drive. Oh well at least if I get a couple people together we can afford to go up the mountain to the lakes.
Might have to buy a bike to get back and forth to work.

Chevy volt. FTW. Nissan leaf.
As long as you have at least one gas driven badass vehicle I'm becoming less opposed to a "tree hugger" ride. Hybrids are kinda cheeky IMO. But hydrogen powered or fully electric cars. That's pretty cool...or a yamaha r6.

Heres whats really happening. I saw it on tv when one guy spilled the beans.
We, ( the world ) are still producing more a day than we use a day
We, ( the world) are paying higher prices each day because the investors sell the worlds entire energy supply back and forth at least 8 times a day making a profitt each time
We, (the world) are the ones who suffer because somebody is making money off of the energy sales
Speculators screw us each time energy is sold by saying the price will go up $XXXXX amount each time
We, (the world) are the ones who pay the price for allowing this to happen.
We, ( the world) can't complain or we ( the world) are called a bunch of whiners. and told theres nothing we can do
and last but not least we (most of the world) are stupid enough to believe them

|MikalCarbine||I'm with talon, picked up and old Saturn for very cheap as my DD. It should pay for itself in savings very quickly especially if gas keeps going up. Now I can also put my Jeep out of commission for a week and still get to work fine|
|04-15-2011 12:26 PM|
I meant to say wouldn't (love spell check on my phone) it was sarcasm lol i understand the issue and am happy to not be paying by the liter as of now.
And i have a motorcycle to save gas

This was a show we happened to catch on the History channel a few weeks ago. It was an interesting view of what the world would be like if we happened to just run out of oil one day. (it is not about how that happens, it is about the Aftermath if it did)

|TJChris27||Its all about those big wig business majors turned investors. Its a product *everyone* and i mean everyone needs to purchase we can complain about prices but in the end we still buy it so the prices will continue rising. I say we have a good old fashion rally! stock up for a bit and see if we can get a whole week without anyone (jeepers) at least purchasing. I figure if a whole week goes by and a ton of people don't buy anything it may go down by 2 cents lol. Just a thought but it really would work. Im buyin a solar panel lol|

|jrussblues||My dad keeps reminding me of the gas hike in the late 70's which led him to buy a 1980 dodge colt. 17 years later that ended up being my first car and gas was 89˘ a gallon. Its times like this we should remind ourselves that we have to stay steadfast in our resolve to not hand down dodge colts. The self esteem of future generations depends on it.|

The cost of Diesel has gone through the roof here. In fact, Hubby gets a rate increase this summer for his grader to help off-set the costs. Our monthly fuel bill has gone from $3500-4000 a month to over $5k and we do not expect it to stop any time soon.
He is glad he traded in his Diesel truck for a gas truck right now.

$1.17/liter here in East/Central Alberta. It was .92 a few weeks ago. ($4.42/gal and $3.50/gal)
We went on a 6500km road trip (left the day after we bought the 2011) last month to Disney/Vegas. I think the most we paid down there, probably in the middle of Anaheim or something, was $1.11/liter ($4.10/gallon)
What a shock to come back across the border and $60 gave us less than 3/4 of a tank!! I don't think we paid more than $60 to fill it, even when it was sucking fumes.
One of the most oft asked questions we got (and we get a lot of questions everywhere we go about the JKU) is 'how's the fuel mileage?' I loved being able to tell people down there that their 'expensive' fuel it still less than what we have ever paid for a gallon of gas in the last 4 years.
As for the economy where I live (oil country) we barely saw a blip on the radar when it happened. Housing went down a teeny bit and the oil patch slowed a little for a few months, but right now jobs are to be had everywhere, the rigs were shutting down because of lack of manpower this winter. This is scheduled to be one of the busiest construction seasons we have had in a very long time. For homes, industry and oil. My husband is in the dirt moving business and this means a very busy summer for him.
I just wished we could benefit with the fuel though... but if I were worried about gas mileage, I would not have bought another Jeep. We quit smoking and the savings alone cover our monthly payment and then some.

|Matcheen||Toronto, Ontario Canada here. $1.27 a liter for cheap unleade, $1.30 a liter for diesel. = 5.10 (est) a gallon for either fuel! Give me $3.50 a gallon any day!!! My last fill up in my sprinter was $105!|
|04-10-2011 09:09 PM|
|Tannerr||Were paying around $1.21 to $1.24 a litre here on PEI, I'm pretty happy with the mileage I'm getting in my jeep, it's doing a lot better than my old truck was|

|Jp90Talon||No worries.....Im just excited to be saving some $ plus get to work on the Jeep. I went to visit a buddy of mine today for a birthday brunch party and took the Si. The same trip that would have taken the jeep 1/2 a tank didnt even move the civics gas needle under the the full line.|
