$4.15/gal at Topaz Lodge yesterday, $4.05 if you paid cash and they have been out of anything but premium twice now this summer. 

 

I think the increase in gas prices has put a big wet cloth over the traveling public. I expect to see thousands of those big RVs and trailers (which were sold out last year) with For Sale signs on them before too long. 

 

But the increase in the cost of gas increases the cost of everything. If us stoopid hoomans could learn anything from anything this *could* encourage re-localization of food and other needs but I won't hold my breath. 

 

(as I sit here evaluating my garden and pantry since a grocery run would be at least 100 miles round trip right now)

Is that the gas that has gold dust mixed in?
