Fuel price is such a small part of riding. When it is empty fill er up.

2.11 here. Fuel price's might not affect riding so much, but if you have to road trip most of your rides, then it makes a difference.

Paid $1.81 for regular and $2.03 for premium today at Costco (Cheapest Price Around). Most stations are about 15-20 cents higher.

I hope we have a lot of snow here, because I won't be doing too many road trips at 7 mpg in the Durango hauling a trailer.

I'm Glad I pull enclosed two place with a Honda Pilot. Plenty of power and at 65 - 70 MPH I get 15 MPG. I figure about 25% more for fuel all around. Winter is short, I gotta ride.

Damn ... I wish I got 15 mpg hauling a trailer, although, I doubt that a Honda Pilot would pull a 4 place Well's Cargo with 2 Thundercats, a Pantera 1000, and a Turbo 660 2-up, tools, 100 gallons of gas, and other various "Stuff" (6000lbs+/-) and still get 15 MPG.

$2.04 for no-lead, and $2.13 for diesel in Wiscony today, when I go to the U.P. this winter, I bet it costs $25 to $30 per gas stop.

Hope you guys are kidding.

I live in Sweden and the price of fuel here are 10,50sek per liter. Thats $1,46/liter or $5,84/Gallon for 95 octane unleded petrol. 95 octane is the lowest octane you can get in this country.

I just bought a new snowmobile a Ski-Doo 500 SS -05 (i get it next week :-)) for 91300sek ~ $12672, wich i consider a cheap price here.

Now im just waiting for the snow to fall.

Glad to see someone from out of the country jump onto this post. No, they are not kidding. Gas still only costs a little over $2 a gallon in most of the good ol' USA. And based on the stories int he news, most people here have no idea how cheap that really is and I'm quietly happy to pay such a low price, though I'm sure I'll probably get jumped on for writing this.

I've traveled to a few other countries, have never seen gas less then about $5/gallon anywhere else. We've had it good for so long here that nobody realizes it.

Just an example, I rented a little Ford Focus in Ireland 2 years ago and topped it up with about 10 gallons before returning it to Hertz. After figuring the liter/currency exchange conversions, I learned that it cost me about $60.

Enjoy the cheap stuff while we got it, everyone!
