    sold my last corvette.

    Default Wow $110 a barrel

    Wow , at $110 a barrel as of today, i guess its going to get bad, Being a kiwi New Zealander living in Australia, it converts to approx $6.00 to $7.00 a gallon. I remember one of my first trips to LosAngeles i purchased a rough no 4 1953 Buick Skylark for $9000,wish i still had it, this month twenty years ago 1988, gas was 99cents a gal, cannot remember want it was a barrel.

    Let's organize and not buy gasoline for one day/week. Let it back up into the system, that will send a message to whom ever..................

    Won't hurt them at all, you'll just buy later as the price goes up. I remember 15 cents per gallon at Clarks Super 100 stations in St. Louis, in the early 60s, when my 56 vette, with twin 4 barrels, got 16 mpg on the highway. But I was only making $15 a week at a part time night job while in college. After graduation in 64, was stationed in Alaska and had a 63 SWC, 300 hp. Premium at the base was 55 cents per gallon (couldn't run the low octance MO gas), and I had jumped to $222 per month as salary as an ensign. One can never get ahead of this game of fuel prices. Now that I will soon be retired, the cost of gasoline will outstrip my pension. But I still want to drive my vettes, so I will pay the price. Just have to cut back on the necessities, such as food and clothing, and will have to have Remo send my medications.
