looks like all my camping will be closer to home.for all those folks that live outside my predetermined radius, you will have to get your economy stimulated by someone else.

If we wait for the fuel prices to drop, we'll be too old to camp.
So to heck with it, we're gonna do what we want.

Went to work last Friday morning and it was $4.09 a gallon. On my way home that day it was $4.16!!!!!!! I don't get it. But as was already said, we won't let it stop us from living and ticking off trips from our bucket list!!!!!

Holding around $4.15-4.20 here in NEPA. Herk, you need to swap your house over to propane-$1.50/gal right now. With all the gas drilling upstate, the gas prices (CNG and LPG) are only going to go down (hopefully.) If I could only just get the truck to run on propane now...

Unfortunately propane is not natural gas. It is a byproduct of gasoline production and is tied to the price of crude. It also has way less BTU per gallon so you need twice as much to heat the same space.

My issue is I live in a cinder block house with crappy insulation. I plan on moving soon and the payback on basically rebuilding the house is not there.

My next house WILL be Nat Gas.
