I honest do not feel fuel prices will effect me. True they are next thing to $5.00 a gallon, but what the 'ell at 75+ yrs of age it is not going to have me easing off my hwy pace, planning out the use of my cage, sparing my cage with others & such.
Where I would feel the pain would be if fuel rationing for I do remember that during WWII. Sure I was only 9 yrs of age when WWII started in '39 & 15 yrs old when it was over. My Father's car started out sitting on wooden blocks though his job had a lot to do with moving troops on the CNR railway so often he had to use his cage, but even then he saved or else even his limited rationing would have run out partway through the month.
Obviously something like we all read on the 'net, as showen, does not interest me.
