if you can afford the 4 g's for a ee sc then you shouldn't be concerned about gas prices. if you are, then you shouldn't have an ee sc

Yes and no Gil.

If i refinanced my truck right now I could take 4 grand in equity and refinance it for 14k, i onlyowe 10k.

If i bought a new truck and the sale price was 20,500, but the retail value is 25,500 then i could get the loan for the full retail cost and have 5k for accessories.

now the down side to both of these is the added interest.

If your credit is good you could get a 0% interest credit card anc fincance it that way.
