Well, here we go again, gas just went up 20 cents to $1.50-$1.70 a gallon and from what I hear with a possible war comming up it will keep going up!!
I really hate to sound so negitive, but how many of us can really afford to play at 2-3 maybe $4.00 dollars a gal.?
This will really put a damper on alot of folks that have family's riding.
With the stock market plumeting, owning a sled may be a trade for food and shelter. I sure hope not!!!

In northern Canada, the pump price for 92 octane is $1.07 CDN/litre.  That works out to around $2.55 US/US gallon.  
  Can you mail me some of that $1.33 fuel?

Here it has been the same price all summer long for the most part.

87~$1.50   ]
90~$1.60   }   US GALLON
93~$1.70   ]

Hope that price increase is just  a Mich. thing.  



I would like to know where all the $0.42 per gallon tax money goes.

Why wouldn't you be able to use nontaxed fuel in your sled?  It is not an on road vehicle, and should not be subject to road use taxes.

I say the season premier of West Wing last night and they protrayed a Ford diesel pick up that was converted to run on soy.  Man if this was possible we'd be out of trouble.

I wonder how much oil reserves we would have from the Alaskain pipeline WE built many years ago if the greedy oil barrons stopped selling it to Japan? Last I ever heard they pay $4.00 a gal. for fuel!!!!
Where I snowmobile, there are oil rigs everywhere and most sit idle because their so full there is nowhere to store it, at least that's what the guy's that run them say.
