    Gas Pricing Now and for Summer 2011

    What do you think the gas prices will be in June, July, Aug,? $4.40? How much riding are you gonna do with those prices and 10.00 worth of oil or more per ride?
    60.00 for 2 hours on the Pro? Damm, thats pricey.

    Hey Keith, are you all paying high prices for petrol too? What about the Aussies? I'm sure that flood will spike prices down under also.

    It's $3.04-$3.19 /gallon. here for 87 with 10% ethanol. (Speedway gas station). Gas is at its highest prices per barrel in 2 years..

    Post your prices here so everyone can see whats going on where.

    Macomb, Michigan-3.04-3.19 ---87 octane

    i run 110 octane at 6.00 a gallon anyways so the gas prices won't affect me for some reason the race fuel stays aroud the same price all the time and the Matrix holds 14 gallons or more

    My pro 1200 will have 200lb compression to make the pipes work to there full potential so i run 110 in there to and my SS 785 runs 110 too so it's all good just the price you have to pay to have fun

    Let's just say there are some people out there that don't have a clue with what the rest of us worry about how much gas costs or will rise too!

    I just went out in the gulf on my buddies Brand NEW 35" Scarab with twin 4 stroke Yami 350's. It holds 400 gals of gas. He keeps it at his dock on the bay here in Sarasota. Never trailers it! Now the price of marine fuel is about $1.50 more a gal than purchasing at you neighborhood pump. So figure out the price!

    Current cheapest low octane 87 pump price here = (neighborhood pump) $3.09 x 400 gals = $1236.00

    Marine low octane 87 pump price here = $4.59 x 400 gals = $1836

    Thats a savings of $600 if you go to the neighborhood pump!

    I was watching him hand his credit card to pay....He turns back to me and says its my company card!

    He then turns to me and says! "I write it off at the end of the year as a BUSINESS EXPENSE!!!

    He then adds that since I never charge him for any of the treatments or Physical therapy to help keep him working at his job! (1st He's a childhood buddy and my father took care of his whole family since before I was born!)

    That he might be able to write off the boat as a medical expense! He answers my confusion with "I need you to write me a Prescription for a new MATTRESS to go in the new boat"

    He continues with "Remember when I hurt my back last month while riding in rough seas during that storm last month!"

    My attorney says I can claim a disability due to the fact I was entertaining a Business patron at the time of the accident!

    Oh by the way my buddy's family owns the local racing greyhound dog track!

    Took my 25 ft. Trophy walkaround cuddy cabin out 12-31-2010 grouper fishing, cost me $240.00 in fuel at $2.99/gal. here in New Port Richey, Fl. We got about 16lb. of fillets which works out around 15.00/lb. Not to bad at $2.99/gal. But that didn't include supplies (Beer, Food, Bait, Beer, Beer) If it gets much higher I may sell it.

    I will never sell the Skis, way to much fun and even with 3 there a lot cheaper to run.
