No doubt. I burn E85 and its 3.29 at the pump, or $300 a drum for the good stuff. I was paying $200 a drum for 110 back when I started looking for more HP.:character0029:

I remember hitting Quick Trip on my way to the lake and filling the boat and Ice chest for under $40, and the beer was more than the fuel.

We pay about $1.50 per liter, I think it is about $5-6 a gallon, a weekend's boating on fuel for the boat is around $340.00 and about $80 for the pick-up. They are increasing the price again by the end of the week, they are stealing the money here quicker than they can collect it and it is an easy way to fill the state coffers.

That just sucks! Don't they realize, if they let the little people enjoy a few meager pleasures, like Jet Boating. We would be less interested in what they do!

I think they realize that, that's what got us here in the first place.

They would rather keep the working man dead broke. And always living on borrowed money, so the rich can keep on living a dream on our extremely high interest rates, and penalties if your a day late. Sucks a$$ to be a working man in today's world. I always said if I could ever come up with something they just couldn't do without I would break a lot of rich pricks of the habit. Till then I'll keep fighting the system.:furious3::beatdeadhorse:

Fork it give me a beer. :Orcish: To the working man.

How high is the price of gas in France?

A thief in Paris planned to steal some paintings from the Louvre. After careful planning, he got past security, stole the paintings, and made it safely to his van. However, he was captured only two blocks away when his van ran out of gas.

When asked how he could mastermind such a crime and then make such an obvious error, he replied, “Monsieur, that is the reason I stole the paintings.”
I had no Monet.
To buy Degas.
To make the Van Gogh.
See if you have De Gaulle to send this on to someone else.
I sent it to you because I figured I had nothingToulouse.
