    Glad I planned this years budget based on four dollar a gallon fuel.

    All it will take to reach that is a fat lady cutting a loud wet fart in the Gulf of Mexico IMHO.

    HA HA AH :hammerhead: :laugh: The gov. stepping in to help.
    The prices are redicoulus and will be higher.
    My deisel is getting me and my equipment to work so much better with mileage, but prices are just gouging me. I always fill up after a week and it uses like a half tank. I would hate to do a full tank at 100.00 or more.:cry:

    I planned on $3 plus per gallon fuel also. I bought 2000 gallons this spring at $2.49 a gallon.Should last me most of the year. I just bought another 500 gallon storage tank last week for gas, had it filled for $2.59 a gal. This will only get us to maybe august.
