That's true because they beat the heck out of our roadways. And yes, there is talk about all of us paying a tax per mile in addition to the current pump taxes.

Electric is a joke. There is a lot of rural area in this country and those things just don't have the mileage capacity. We all don't live in metropolitan areas and don't have mass transit as an option either . Also, I'm not sure you could ever pull a trailer with an electric vehicle. I keep wondering how our electric grid in this country could support electric vehicles. It barely supports our current needs for businesses, homes etc.

It' quite Polly Anna of our government leaders to think we'll be weaned off petroleum products in the near future, maybe not in the far future either. It's just not that simple. It is quite stupid of them to give our tax dollars to another country so they can get a product from the the earth and then we purchase the product from them which we get taxed on at the end result. Wow, that's not even double taxation, it might be triple, quadruple and more. Didn't the basic founding of our country have something to do with taxes!! Hum!!!

As for pulling my trailer with high gas prices. Yes, yes, yes...I will.

I hated Montana, Wisconsin hated Greg but opportunities close to home have opened up in the that last few days even though North Dakota is sending him a job offer. All you can do is hope for the best. Been here before more then we like.

Why did you hate Montana? It looks beautiful and is on my "to see" list one of my trips to WY. Anything I need to look out for???
