    Default Gas prices vs archery

    Well, How many of you are going to let these gas prices affect your shooting. Kind of hard to travel a couple of hundred miles to shoot a tourny. In my area it just hit $3.86 for regular. Gonna make that deer a little better tasting this fall too. I hear they are going to start installing small screens on the gas pumps showing porno movies so at least we know we ain't the only ones getting .

    $3.77 around the beach area. Seems like it goes up $.02-.04 per day. The lady at 7-11 said they keep raising the prices to match Wawa. I guess if one tries to lower the price, Wawa will kill them with lower munchie costs?

    It's slowed us down alot.. we usually hit 2 shoots every weekend.. but now its like 1 every 2 weeks... and we dont take the truck anymore either, we take the new zoom-zoom.
    its just too much $ when you pay gas, 2 entry fees plus eating out somewhere.. last one we went to we did take a picnic.. all of our shoots are at least one hour away, usually more. Times are getting tough.

    Doesn't mean the stations will lower their prices. They know we're willing to pay the higher prices.

    But they'll probably throw some sand in it first!

    Yeah, but don't you all have cars that get like 90KM/L? We haven't figured that one out over here yet. Use cars that get better fuel milage. I drive my wifes car to and from work because it gets WAY better gas milage than my truck!

    yes that's true.
    It's really expensive to have a city jeep now due to all the taxes.
    i curently drive a 89 volvo 360, it's a pile of rusty blue crap but really cheap to own
