    I keep hearing about how the price of gas is not deterring people from travel plans this weekend. So I ask you folks: Is the price of gas going to have any say on your plans this Memorial Day Weekend?

    I don't have plans to go out of town this weekend so it doesn't affect me at all but if I was going out of town I think I'd just pay the extra cash and go

    Haven't any plans anyways. Gonna sit at home, swill, amd watch people beat the crap out of each other. Oh, and I have to work all weekend. High gas prices may effect my hopes of going fishing Monday though. does that count?

    All the rain and the flooding rivers are affecting me more than the gas prices!

    The answer is no it won't affect my plans for the week end because Iam not going anywhere
    But it does bother me that we as Americans can't do anything about it.
    High gas prices = high cost of everything.
    I would be willing to sit at home and not drive and let the big oil producers eat their oil. I'll bet once they got a taste of their on medicine prices would drop!!!
    I think we are being controlled by them!
    Oh!now you got me going!:eek:oooh:

    im going to work all weekend and monday too so in a sense it isnt going
    to cause me to have to change plans .
    it does however suck knowing that i am going to pay more to fill up for work just because the so called price of demand is reflected at the pumps.
    i guess i should be thankful to have a side job to make ends meet.
    the way everything is going up though i feel like have took a pay cut.
    everything from groceries to utilities are jacking up the prices and
    my pay stays the same .
    its getting old.

    I can't say that I like the high fuel costs any more than the next person.

    I have made plans a year in advance to attend the Keystone gathering, and I'm going no matter what the price I have to pay for gas.

    I'm really hoping that fuel costs go down some before my trip, but I doubt it...

    I think these gas prices are effecting everything. They need to do something about it, it is rediculous to have to pay that much for gas. Whats the point in working if you have to spend 1/2 of your paycheck to even get to work..LOL....It also has had am impact on my tournaments i think. It is 3.49 here in Ohio were I am at.

    Just a hunch but I bet if enuff people decided to stay in thier own local or travel via transit such as train or Greyhound for the 4th of July weekend gas prices would take a quick plunge.

    I think it would be a good for people to drive less. For one the less consumption would drive down the prices a little. And secondly less time in the car is more time on the couch:big_smile:

    I work with the government and we deal with a fuel account for our nations aircraft (about 25million gallons annualy/just my base) and we also deal with an account that does about 2 million gallons of unleaded fuel annually. We get reports on prices directly from the gov and I hate to say it but it doesnt look like prices are about to go under 3$ a gallon for quite some time. I will tell you this the gov does pay less to get the product than we do @ civilian gas pumps but its really not that much less. I guess what Im saying is I dont get worked up over it because Im gonna need it no matter what. DARN! I shouldnt have bought that HEMI !!!
