Boy, you sure are lucky !!!

Wait, it gets worse.
Local food center, Martins, gives points toward gas purchases. After last trip, gassed up, got 25 gallons to top tank off. Ended up paying 48 cents per gallon.

Gas is $1.75 here in Salem Oregon... few cents either way but it's running pretty close to $1.75.

What tends to happen right after Spring, is gas starts creeping up until the end of Summer... then it goes back down some...
The oil companies say that the price increases are because of refinery shut downs, fires, or changing from "Winter Blends" to " Summer Blends".... whatever they can use to raise the price during driving / vacation season....

This last summer was no different than anywhere else... I went on multiple trips... Moab Utah, Sturgis SD.... gas was all over the place but about 60 to 70 cents more during summer months...

We have a 2012 Coachmen Mirada 29DS and I tow a Fiat 500 (best tow vehicle and RV ever and we have had a few). We average 7 mpg and I keep very good records. I stay 65 or under.

MPG

We just came back from a 2600 mile run with a Windsong 326 pulling 4100 lbs of car and dolly. Mountains don't matter much nor does the toad. Wind is more the enemy. 5.5 to 7.3 depending on the headwind at 63-65 mph.
