Filled up the first time with over $5.00 gas. Actually $5.09 a gallon (non-ethanol) gasoline. I am going to keep the reciepts for over $5.00 gas fills. When someone is touting the Democrats, I can show what they did!

You got a bargain.

Booze-free is $5.35 here. And that's depressing, since pure gas has always been available, and relatively-cheaply, here.

I paid $5.99 a couple weeks ago for nonethanol gas for the chain saws. We dipped $.15 a gallon back then because NYS dropped it's gas road tax. They are still making bank on the sales tax because that is 8% on $5 instead of $2-$3 a gallon where it was before Byden.

Visited with an over the road truck driver today. He said, that when he fills the fuel on the semi he drives, the pump shuts down at $1,000 of purchase!
Ouch!

$4.99 here, for two days, now.

Montana's prices have been on the low side of the middle. So I expect $5 is the new Cheap.

I wish I believed it mattered.

You've got automaton NPCs who get wound up to spit and scream Ray-Cyst. They don't know or understand economic factors.

They just know to hate the station who charges $5 a gallon, because the beauties on The View tell them, it's "not fair." And somehow, someone named Pew Ton, is doing this.

You're not going to reason with them. Not between now and the collapse.

Its not like we haven't seen all the warning signs.

I'm happy that I was paying attention and had the support of my young wife. I'd rather be an ant then a grasshopper when the music stops!

I’ve been hearing rumors of DEF and motor oil shortages to come, I’ve stock piled these on my truck already. Vehicles don’t only need fuel to work.

While you've been stocking up, have you noticed any decrease in amounts of it that are available?

Neighbor ran out of hydraulic fluid and I gave him several gallons to use. He paid me back with 2 1/2 gallons jugs of premium hydraulic fluid. The price sticker on those jugs was $52.00 a jug! I am used to buying that brand for $32.00 a jug. Last year, I stocked up on hydraulic fluid for my tractor. Glad I did, before the price went up.

If you've got leaky hydraulics, now would probably be a good time to get on top of that.

Hydraulic hose blew on his skidsteer. That is why he lost hydraulic fluid.

Once in awhile, an hydraulic hose blows on the loader, rotary mower, etc. that I use. At least I know that, wherever the hydraulic fluid sprays on, that area will not rust! :belly laugh:

Not sure what brand you guys use but he overpaid IMHO

John Deere Hy-Gard is a premium hydraulic fluid which normally comes with a premium price


I just picked up 4 gallons for my 1025r (you guys got me sceered now)

Just to clarify: When I mean 2 1/2 gallon jug, I am referring to a 2.5 gallon jug. So that would be $20.80 a gallon.

Those 5 gallon pails of John Deere hydraulic fluid (Hy-gard), was $77.00 each last fall. They are now $95.00 each.

Not a bad price, if you use that much. I change my hydraulic filter and fluid, every so many years. That is why I purchase in 5 gallon pails.

On a related note, I prebought 800 gallons of propane for the upcoming heating season. Price was $1.99 a gallon. In the 25 years or so of prebuying propane, that is the most I have ever paid per prebought gallon. Still have 800 gallons of 99 cent propane from 2 years ago (pre-Biden).

I will be putting plastic on the windows this fall!

I’ve heard the DEF can crystallize when it gets old and cause major issues. So I’d be sure to rotate it out (pour jugs into your tank and refill them from the pump ea mo)….

$5 in NW Ohio area. Brotehr drives Dump Truck. many places limiting then to $100 purchase no matter the price. He went to 3 places to get full.
Semi's driving our country roads to cut down on mileage. Roads not designed for that. Will destroy roads in short order.

While they poison steers and burn chicken coops, they're destroying the transportation system.

They are DESPERATE. And insane...

I think it has to hit air to do that.

Gas prices have a profound psychological effect on the NPC's. Riding around the popular resort area my cabin's in, I see many many cabins and cottages that haven't had their lawns mowed. That means quite a few folks are not coming up north like they usually do. The reason I say NPC's is I'm sure many of these folks think nothing of dropping $40 at a drive through 4-5 times a week and paying $100+ a month on entertainment like their smart-tethers and pay teevee.

The reason this makes me nervous is the globalists running the occupation regime obviously have zero worries about the mid term elections. The next steal must be a done deal in their eyes. They will usually put a spit shine on their destruction before an election and they're not even bothering to do that now. Pretty damn alarming.

If there is anybody on our side it would be nice for them to make an appearance. But I ain't holding my breath.

Abandoned summer cottages.

I can't say I'm surprised; but it's sad to see it happen.

Again...I feel sorry for myself, put in my situation with a nice bit of change in recreational equipment I can't really use now...but it could have been so much worse.

By the looks of them most had visitors early in the season and they were mowed a couple times, but not in the past month or so. Climate in that area has cool wet rainy springs that make the jungle grow like a mother, then transition into a hot dry summer. By mid June I only have to mow once every 2 then by July 3 weeks. Going by my own chores I can tell how long a cabin's been left sitting.

EDIT: Abandoned cabins don't do well here. Bugs and rodents take them over quickly and when the Florida weather misery hits in August the humidity just destroys them. I've seen cabins and trailer camps with condensation running down the inside of the windows.

Brother reports $5.50/gal reg unleaded in Scottsdale.

He drives 45 min one way to work every day and spends over $100 per week on gas.

Proof of this is they are totally fucking over the insane 20-25% that would typically support them.

If you have hot dry summers where you're at....long grass, dried and brown, is a REAL fire hazard.

I hope you're making plans. A fire break - either as it exists, or the ability to make one fast with a dozer or large rototiller. Lots of water, that can be drawn on even when the power poles burn and fall. And of course your bug-out bag.
