what really sux is that with the rediculous price of fuel, they're turning rv'ing into something only the rich can afford. used to be that hooking up the trailer and going somewhere, was a way that middle class families could take a fun, not too expensive vacation, and spend some good family time. i know plenty of people who have sold their trailers/motorhomes, because with $3.50/gallon fuel prices, they just don't use them enough to justify keeping them.

One other thing many forgot or may not know about our new ULSD and what they can do with it at the refinery to keep prices high. The info below is what updated refinery's can do to ULSD if they run low on gas.

================================================== ========
The refinery completed one of its largest projects ever in May 2006. This $350 million project allowed the refinery to produce ultra low-sulfur diesel fuels and convert diesel fuel to gasoline to meet market demands.

Thats not quite right they use US gallons which is 3.785 liters which is $4.16 a gallon. With the exchange rate thats $4.23

So we are allready over $4.00 a gallon in canada and on the radio they are saying gas will be over $1.50 a liter before they add the carbon tax in the summer, So I wonder what that means for diesel prices.
