What I did notice is how fuel costs were way low a couple months before the presidential election. Now a couple months after the inauguration they are way high. Hmmmmm.

Heading south for 2 trips this year, I guess the fuel costs would be what I would pay for airfare if I had to fly, so it's pretty much a wash.

No Way it has not yet changed anything. Where we go it takes a tank there & a tank back last summer $100 each way....... even if diesel went to $5 agallon it would then cost about $135 each way. Might cut running around once we get there a little.

We currently have 3 different weeks planned at the same place in Myrtle Beach. Won't affect or closer to home weekends either.......
