    Get used to it guys! The days of cheap gas are over! The world is catching up to us and starting to suck up a lot of oil.. I perdict 2.50 a gallon in the not too distant future. if you want to drive a big V8 I Hope you have deep pockets.

    Might be a good time to invest in oil futures:thumb: . That way you can afford to run a rig that gets 10 MPG.:rotfl: :rotfl:

    Kinda makes me glad I just traded in my VW with the 1.8T, it got 26mpg and REQUIRED 91 octane or better (93 in my case). I traded it in for a 05 Colorado reg cab with 4 cylinder and 5 speed, supposed to get 21 city and 27 highway on 87 octane. Makes me wonder though, the engine in the colorado has a 10:1 compression, wonder how that works with 87 octane? Chevys website recommends 87 octane though, so who knows.

    Isn't it funny how gas starts rising right around the holidays. We have spring break in 2 weeks. When people travel the most!
