    Do a google search for "Peak Oil" and see why we better enjoy our toys
    while we got'em. Or is it empty doom & gloom? Never mind, that's totally
    off topic.

    [BAC-Mail] Fuel prices

    I paid $4.28 at HKY (N. Carolina) on 9/5 and 9/10, $4.21 at LZU (GA) on 9/5.
    Self-fueling at FDK (MD) where I'm based was $4.02 yesterday, and about
    $4.35 from the truck. Haven't checked Rider Jet at HGR where, less than two
    weeks ago, self-fueling was at $2.90.

    [BAC-Mail] Fuel prices

    David,
    Glad you had enough to make it out and was able to by-pass Destin,
    Florida. I wouldn't use them again even if it meant walking... I'll be glad when
    we get a new FBO built to give Miracle Strip some competition! I guess I
    got spoiled by FBOs like Signature at Huntsville, Alabama and Million Air in
    New Orleans. They both treat me very well when I fly in, regardless of the
    amount of fuel I purchase.
    Blue Skies,
    Chuz

    [BAC-Mail] Fuel prices

    This is from AvWeb:

    AVgas Prices Past Peak?
    $1-Per-Gallon Hikes Not Unusual
    The bad news is, you've likely seen the price of avgas zipping upward in
    the last two weeks, but the good news is, that upward trend seems to have
    topped out, and by the end of last week many prices were starting to
    backslide a bit. Paulo Santos, who has been tracking GA fuel costs for eight
    years at AirNav.com, told AVweb last week that although prices now are the
    highest he's seen, "At a few FBOs we are now seeing some softening." He
    cited several examples of FBOs charging $4.50 and up for 100LL midweek that
    were down to $3.99 by Friday, while some highs still topped $6.00. Overall,
    of 1,617 FBOs reporting, prices per gallon were up an average of 39.4 cents
    over two weeks, Santos said. Prices went up $1 or more at 64 FBOs, and the
    largest increase was $1.69. Prices are changing all the time, but as of
    Friday the highest price was at Teterboro, just outside New York City, where
    100LL was selling for $6.41. But bargains could be found. The lowest prices
    are hard to track, Santos said, because generally they're found at remote,
    rural airfields, but he's pretty confident that the $2.60 at Winnsboro,
    Texas, (F51) is among the very lowest in the country. "It's certainly a lot
    cheaper than car gas just about anywhere," he said.


    ...But It Could Be Worse
    "U.S. pilots don't appreciate how good life is to them," CFI Juergen
    Boettcher wrote to AVweb last week. "In Germany we are presently paying more
    than $9 per gallon of avgas. Most of that is taxes, of course." Another way
    to look at the price hike is as just one factor in overall operating costs.
    "If you are currently paying $4 for a gallon of avgas 100LL, and your price
    leaps [by 50 percent] to $6, your overall expense will increase only by
    plus-or-minus 11 percent, approximately," Jeremy Cox, an aircraft mechanic,
    wrote recently on GlobalAir.com. If that's cold comfort, advice on
    fuel-saving methods abounds. Pilots can fly slower, carry less weight, keep
    the airframe clean and waxed, and try to keep routes as direct and efficient
    as possible. There are more creative solutions afoot. One more creative, if
    more complex, approach -- lobby your state legislature for tax relief. It
    seems to be working for the NASCAR folks. If a bill now pending is passed,
    the motor-sport teams would be exempted from North Carolina state taxes on
    avgas used to travel to races.

    [BAC-Mail] Fuel prices

    My home base (KBJC) has 100LL for $4.58. I flew a mere 23 miles one way
    this morning (9/11) and found it at 48V for $3.15!!!! Yippee - I filled 'er
    up ($98.50). Imagine thinking that 3.15 is a great price ?!?!!?

    I wait 20 years to finally get an airplane and now I can't afford the damned
    fuel! 100 bucks every time I taxi up to a fuel pump. Sheesh!!
    Okay, I'm done ranting.

    Why don't you post a copy of your letter on the site? We all could modify
    it, mutatis mutandis, and email it to the attorney generals of our states.
    For those who are not Latin scholars, "mutatis mutandis" means "having
    changed what should be changed."
