Question What happens when???

Ok prices of diesel/gas are going up, Im having a hard time wondering what the heck im goin to drive when its 8 or 10 bucks a gallon?
don't have to repley

lets see here 29 gallons 8 bucks= 232 i think, IN ONE WEEK!!!!! (for me atleast)

38gallons 8 bucks =304 a WEEK or week in half still! (me)

38 10+ = bank rupt.......


Honda 30mpg

15 gallons 8= 120 a week AND WOW thats what my 01 with 38 gallons cost to fill NOW. alittle more but still close enough

i hate to think what im going to have to do just to drive to work or get food, Now they say they raise the minium wage up and ppl get raises, but seriouslly were i stand with raises and wages seems lower then anything else i try to buy lol! to a point. Time to break out the horses and ride to work lol.
Not asking anyone to replay im just bored and thought i do this and talk about it cuz way othere fuels are going there going to be just as high, and the systems you have to put on the trucks to make them run on alternet fuel is expensive but it might be worth it. don't know if you ll make the same power ethier. idk depressing as hell

At that point I will buy a horse because hay and grass will be cheaper then gas or diesel. Even with VET bills it would be cheaper to haev a horse then a truck.

i had to buy a little volkswagen that gets 30 miles to the gallon and park the rig. now i just use it to take the tractors to shows and plow days, or if it snows i use the truck.i have heard diesel will be in the 4-4.50 range in the summer. that sucks i cant even get a raise because of the high fuel prices. hell even my car takes almost 40.00 to fill 12 gallons. no wonder we are in a recesion. and isnt diesel cheaper to make?

I would be driving my honda lude but nooooooo clutch blew and transmission blew. so im stuck driving my truck and getting raped. and yes diesel is cheaper. but what is more in demand. NOW think how much diesel trains use and gen sets and truckers. And everything else. reasonin saying cuz everyones like theres more gas vech out there then diesel. Maybe but they damm sure dont burn 500 gallons in less then 1000miles lol! Mp10 by the way.

that sounds good in theory but hay is 13.95 a bale and is going right up with the price of diesel, so they got us by the balls
