$3/Gallon?

Saw a clip on the news that stated gasoline would be at 3bucks a gallon by this summer. Time for getting back to bicycles...

I guess we'll just wait and see. But what can you do? You still gotta get to work everyday.

The sky is falling! The sky is falling!

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?

If I remember correctly, don't you spend about $0/month on your gas costs to/from work?

but that cheap oil is just part of the returns that the Big Oil Companies invested into the pockets of the Pres. and congress.

Now you have to pay them for the payouts.

Isnt capitalism and big business fair.

Re: $3/Gallon?

$3 / gal?? Crap man, we hit that here in the frozen north years ago.

Last time I topped up the bikes it was 79.9 c/litre. That works out to $3.59/gal. But then again, that is Canadian Funny Money.

Re: $3/Gallon?

Its been right at $1.35 a gallon here for quite a while. The 954 is supposed to get 35 or so mpg but I have no throttle control. Just keeps going to WOT. Not good for mpg but very good for the adrenaline gland.
