Yep. I remember when the wal-mart gas station over here in gulf breeze opened up. Gas was 99 cents on opening day. Then next day, the gas prices went back up to $1.15 and I thought it was a rip off!

I remember as a young boy hearing my father gripe that it took $2 to fill up his VW. That was back in the early 60's. :reallycrying

It is pretty sad when you'd give anything to pay 3.50 a gallon and think you're getting a good deel at 3.90. I'll tell ya what bugs me is when oil shoots up $15/bbl gas follows almost immediately but the oil falls $17/bbl over the past 3 days it will take gas weeks to back off. And that's only if oil manages to stay lower.

Diesel was around .99 on that same date. When I first started driving in 1987 I remember paying around .60

I need to vent-



four years ago when i was 21 I got a chaparral 204 cuddy cabin with a 150 hp mercury on the back and I was king of the world. I could afford to take it out two weekends a month. I make enough money to lease a pretty nice house, payed off my car, eat drink and fish but as gas crept up my trips on the boat went down. Without use I started having problems with hydrolics, the steering locking up at the motor, water in gas and the whole host of things that go wrong with boats that sit for a long time. "wow, my temp gauge doesn't work anymore, damn". Now when I look at knowing I have to drop money into it just to not be able to afford the gas king of the world has turned into one depressed fishermen. :reallycrying
