Sure, but what MPG'* do you get on the freeway? 30 or better? I think not.

Screw you Bill lol

I pull about 22-23 roughly on winter fuel...been seeing 22-25 ish now that they're not blending the diesel anymore. So for an 8000lbs truck I find it rather respectable....I like 560-580 miles per tank

I remember a few summers ago my weekly gas bill was between 400-600 weekly and that was at the start of the incline in price. When I dont agree with is the fluctuation in cost. I have seen it to be almost .30 in a distance of 130 kms. the way I understand it if Proctor and Gamble had a problem and raised the cost of tide would the price fluctuate from town to town I think not. and why doesn't tobacco fluctuate in cost, a liter of oil doesn't fluctuate in cost So why GAS ?? It'* pure BS that only one commodity fluctuates in cost sometimes several times a day. We're being screwed but we knew that.

I remember when gas was under $1 a/gallon and I'm only 20. When I first got my Bonne I would pay about $2.37 a/gallon for 94 now I'm paying upwards of $3.50 & 3.60.

O-well
