    I use an Oklahoma credit card for my gas. Cheaper that way.

    In north west Ohio, a walmart credit card at a Walmart store will get you 15 cents a gallon off.

    11/5/08 - Gas was $1.84, Unemployment was 5.5%, Rate of inflation was 5%, and the interest rate was 5.5%.

    I saved that data from the news that morning.

    Never have and never will care what gas prices are. When the Ford truck nears empty I get it filled. Gas is just one of those things that you have no control over so why worry about it. Is long as its there buy it.

    It's a minimum 120 mile round trip for me even to shoot practice (so I don't do that very often) and the clubs I frequent most are 120, 200, and 240 miles round trip. And gas here is around $4/gallon and my truck will burn $70 worth minimum.

    Maybe a Volt is not such a bad idea, at least in California..........

    Gonna get a lot more expensive soon for me. I'm movin' farther north here in MI and everything is a longer drive. But it's worth it to get farther away from the cities. Bill

    Gas prices up here this summer ran around $3.50 to 3.90 per gal. I drive to Mason MI 4 times a year pulling my camper. $150 each time round trip.
    Other shoots are 20 to 50 miles away, I can drive my little car to them getting about 32mpg so it's not to bad. This biggest spread is the cost of targets, from $23 to $33 per 100.

    I have four ATA clubs within 50 miles. My Toyota Camera hybrid
    gets 44 mph. Cost of gas is not much of an issue.

    I drive an F-250 Super Duty Diesel, I pay as much as it takes. When I want to go shooting, I go shooting. I have been to a fair amount of shoots where people ask me why I drove so far. The answer is because I wanted to shoot there at that particular club, that is why. If I worried about the price of fuel, I would not shoot half as much as I do now. And I enjoy every minute of it, even when my scores are horrible.

    Last shoot I went to was about 8 miles from my home, so 16 miles round trip and my car gets about 20MPG, so it cost me about $3.75. Maybe $3.50.

    At these rates, I'm going to have to cut back on my shooting.

    I have to drive min. one hour to get my young shooter reg targets. It does hurt the expense account but this it what he loves to do so we make it happen. Would be nice to see the price below $3 a gallon again but I doubt it.
