Folks I listen to (not MSM) are saying $200/barrel later this year. That equals +$5/ gal easily... That will send diesel to +$6/ gal which in turn, will KILL the prices of everything. As if it's not out of hand already.

Because wheelie!!!

But on a side note, I saved over $200 on car insurance by switching to Geico! LOL

Gotta laugh in the face of adversity!

Yep. That is why I started the "Should we be paying $6 a gallon of gas" thread... No one offered any solutions other than to bash the oil companies over their profits.

Probably closer to $6 per gallon at $200 per barrel. :headshake

Or get a 250. Seriously, I think I am going to get one once the house sells and we move to Austin.... Save the 10R for playing around and track days.
