Default Summer Sucks Now

They just started tearing up the street in front of house. So will have four months of dirt road and dust every where.
Gas went to $4.29 a gallon so every forty five miles it coast me money I don't have.
You know once the gas has gone up its never ever going back down to where it once was.
So that means food and every day items like pop will all go up.
Only good thing is value of bike went up a 1000 dollars cause its cheaper then a cage to get around.

2008 Vision
Mpls, MN.

Wow, $4.29/gal. It's still $3.29 here. Hope it's not heading up again. Fortunately my commute is 7 miles each way. I can get to work and back home at least 3 days a week for $3.29 in gas.

$4.29???? FOUR TWENTY NINE A GALLON?!?!?!

Where can I get gas that cheap? Its freaking $4.79/gallon here in San Francisco, and at some robbery...uh, I mean, gas stations, they are charging $5.03/gallon! And thats REGULAR!

I live a couple miles from the refinery in Richmond that caught fire last August, and thats been the going excuse for high prices - that refinery is off line. Then it came back on line, and the excuse was having to change to a summer blend of gasoline, so supplies were low. Excuse the F outta me, but if you KNOW every year in the summer you have to switch to a summer blend and then back again in winter, why arent you preparing for summer, rather than just raising the price of.... oh wait a sec...

THEY DO IT BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEY CAN RAPE OUR WALLETS ANNUALLY. Its BS. Its an excuse to raise the prices.

Speaking of bike values, I was just tooling around on CL earlier, and saw several nice Harleys for sale. Asking price was $3-5K OVER Kelly Blue Book values. Do people really pay those prices for Harleys?? $15999 for a 2006 Street Glide with 62K miles on it. KBB quotes $12K dealer price. Another private seller with same year Street Glide, asking $17990... Sure would like to try whatever they are smoking!

2003 Vegas - straight pipes, Big Sucker air filter kit, black powder coated everything - foot controls, handlebars, clutch and brake housing, fork lowers, luggage rack, wheels, digital speedo with powder coated housing. Relocated key switch, red plug wires. Mustang solo seat. LED ring blinkers in front. Black DEI pipe wrap.

WTF! When I filled up yesterday in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina regular was $3.16/gallon. Heck, if I had a WalMart credit card, it would have been $3.06/gallon. Looks like it's time for you to relocate down south to me!

4.29 a gallon here in Olympia area Washington for premium. Sad part is the car gets 36 on regular and the XC get 43 on premium, so its about a wash. Of course the bike is much more fun.

About $3.75 here in central Illinois but up by Chicago it is always at least 20 cents more than I pay. That means that Chicago is probably pushing $4.00 for regular.
