Have you adjusted your spending and driving habits recently?
Spending habits, no. GAS, guitars, GAS, amps, GAS guitars
Ironically, speaking of gas (the petol kind) I have adjusted my driving habits. I used to go on many road trips around this region. Say for example, I like to go down to Taos New Mexico to visit my friends and camp/hike/drink beer
/etc. From Denver just approx 3 years ago it cost me roughly $ 80 - $ 100 in feul for the round trip. (Ford Ranger V6) Now it costs me at least $ 350 - $ 400 for the trip
. I don't visit my friends quite as much nowadays and going out for the leisurely Sunday drive is becoming a thing of the past which is a drag because I really enjoy going out for drives in the Mountains.
Out of interest, how much are paying for petrol over there in the US?
Here in the UK it's a joke, around £5 ($10) per gallon!
Costs around £70 to fill my car up with diesel nowadays.
Yeah, you Birts have been getting the "petrol Shaft" for ages now. I couldn't believe the prices of petrol over there as even 7 years ago it was $ 10.00
The family I visit in Breden have LP conversions in their vehicles and they can click back and forth from Petrol to LP. But from what I'm hearing, the cost of LP in the last couple years has sky-rocketed as well. Fuel around these parts averages about $ 3.00 per gallon so I suppose we have it easy compared to you guys.
Just a (rules) reminder folks. Please keep the governments/politics, etc out of this thread because obviously it could easily go that direction. Lets just keep it to the price range and adjusted spending/driving habits rather than going to the reason for such adjustments
