    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 :censored: .

    $3.77 around the beach area. Seems like it goes up $.02-.04 per day. :noidea: 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? :mad: :mad:

    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.

    Here in Mo. the Govenor is trying to pass a law that requires all gas station to give out a free jar of Vasoline with every fillup to help ease the pain.

    Doesn't mean the stations will lower their prices. :mad2: :mad2: They know we're willing to pay the higher prices. :frusty:

    yes that's true.
    It's really expensive to have a city jeep now due to all the taxes.
