Im guessing your talking about 100 unleaded? I was talking leaded race gas,if you used leaded you wouldnt have a converter left Lol. Im gonna be buying a 55 gallon drum of it since places are far and few from carrying anymore. That way I can fill and enjoy right from home

This country has enough oil reserves to be oil independent for the next 40-50 years but the environmentalists and liberals won't let those reserves be tapped. Don't blame Iran, blame your local tree hugger.

gas is projected to be at 5 bucks a gallon by summer... they say that every year, but we'll see.

paid 3.65 yesterday for 87 in the truck. Blah.

Glad I haven't pulled the trigger on a full size yet. lol

i agree... blame the tree huggers for the high gas prices...blame the high gas prices on the abundances of priuses on the road, and blame the batteries in those priuses for the environmental damage we've caused... makes a ranger look pretty fantastic...and the tree huggers look... err, ummm, not so good

3 or 4 bucks per gallon isnt even that bad.. in vancouver its anywhere from 1.20 a L on a good day to 1.40, which would mean at 1.40/L, 1 gallon @ almost $5.30. Thats regular to lol

$3.39 today at Super America in Minnesota. On Tuesday they take any gas coupon and double it. So I payed $3.24/gal for 87 regular. I was tickled to find the 03 Ranger got 18.5 mpg on the lats fill. I got the scangauge coming in the mail to help even more on my awarness of the mpg's.

I thought I is kind of neet we can watch this entire thread from when it started to a year or two down the road to watch the prices go up and down.... wel at least up.

Oil is traded world wide on the stock market, Even if we DID have 40-50 years worth of reserves, It would still be sold on the world market which would keep prices right where they are.

I can remember the day I bought my Ranger.

November 20th, 2004. The dealer sold it to me on empty stating that they weren't allowed "by law" to fill it after it was sold (lame bunch of ****) I'll never forget it cost exactly $23 to fill up. Gas was around $1.32 at the time.

I miss those days.
