Well, has is only about $3.65 here... But I noticed something a little disturbing at a gas stations in PA a while back: The "grade" selection buttons on all of their pumps went (from left to right) mid-grade, regular, premium. So the button on the left was mid-grade! I'm sure a lot of people filled up with mid-grade just because they're used to hitting the left-most button.

Yup my local station is indeed 5.26 a US gallon today but as Donna says stop the complaining it could be $9.58 a gallon

hummmm Venezuela is a beautiful place at only 6 cents a gallon its even prettier..... always wanted a home on the beach......

While I'm not happy filling up the truck with $130 worth of fuel it's not going to change what my family does for kicks! We still have the annual roadtrip planned to Oregon for 2 weeks at Spring Break and 5 weeks to southern Utah again in the summer (can't get enough of that area!!!) and as many weekends as we can cram in camping and dirtbiking in BC. If it adds another $1000 to the years expenses, oh well. We can absorb the hit.

Although 2 or 3 years from now I may not be singing the same tune.

Cheers,

I can hardly go to the Bay Area (the closest Metro area) and back on a tank of gas.

And then folks go into the store and pay $5.00 for 500 ml of designer WATER!
That's $10.00/liter or $37.80 per US Gallon!

….. and the gallon of Goldwasser is $125/gal, sound insane, but this is an equal connection to your comparison. What a Goldwasser drink has to do with fuel.

It amazes me that you can purchase a car delivering 73 mpg highway and 48 mpg city driving in EU but not in NA. There are some mighty forces driving this dilemma.

Just pointing out the irony of people complaining about paying - for example - $3.50 for a gallon of gasoline, but don't complain about paying many times more per ounce for something they can get 'free" out of a tap!

You can buy a Nissan Leaf (99 mpg equivalent) or a Mitsubishi I-miEV (112 mpg equivalent) in North America.

The original purpose of Fiberglass trailers was to allow RV travel without oversized Tow Vehicles. The trailers were mostly 13fters then.
I love my 13 Scamp which has every feature of it's larger siblings,yet can still be towed with my 4CYL Escape.
While I am not allowed to explore the reasons for the present trend in the price of fuel, I think it should still be acceptable to say that it is beyond the control of the average person alone, and the majority has misplaced it's trust.
That being said,those of us who have taken the most frugal approach should be the last to park our Travel Trailers, and so reap the benefits of less crowded campgrounds, and less crowded destinations. At least until travel is further stifled by the questionable choices of those in power, who have no personal incentive to economize.
Platitudes and false empathy are no substitute for leadership.

Unfortunately without charging stations infrastructure the range is limited.
