    Just sold a boat that had 270 gallons in it's tanks. Should have added a "fuel surcharge" on the price - like my oil company does.

    I usually pay about $125 to fill the F250. We don't drive it much so it can be a s long as two months between fillups. I commute about 85 miles a day with a 31 MPG Ford Focus. It still costs nearly $50 to fill the car once a week. I was a teenager in the late 80s and for $25 we could cruise all night with a case of beer. I don't know how kids can afford that anymore.

    I was a teenager in the 60's, and we could do all that plus a pizza for ~$15. :cool:

    I'll bet it could cost nearly $100 now. Plus mention legal fees.

    Sure is different now...alot of the younger people I have met have no interest in driving because its too expensive for them. I can remember running around in my old truck in the 80s and putting 75 cents worth in(what I dug out of the ash trey and seat) and still getting over a gallon of gas... Bought 33 gallons today and paid $113 with a 10 cent/gallon discount...

    Put in $100.00 a week (pump stops at $100.00) at Costco for back and forth to work. Weekend trips, towing the trailer and any extra cruising is extra! Thanks for pointing this out to me Danno>> $500.00 a month in gas sounds crazy stupid!
