So how much is gas going to cost by the time SEFF gets here?

Well Diesel hit $4.04 a gallon here today... Most I have ever seen it, even during that last crazy surge a few years back. It sure doesn't look like it will stop going up anytime soon either.

I sure am looking forward to SEFF, but I am not looking forward to buying the fuel for that 1400 mile round trip.

What does everyone think prices will get up to before we all head that way?

I think the price will hover right around $3.50 to $3.75. Its killin me, but, I was paying $4+ a gallon in Germany 10 years ago. So, it could be worse. No matter what, it wont stop me from driving my gas guzzling Cuda everywhere!

I moved my daughter to Brooklyn about 10 days ago. Round trip including some driving while I was up there totaled about 1400 miles. I spent $280 for gas!! You had better start saving your money now.

I imagine it will be high enough to cost me about $500 to get there and back.

All I can say is for the 2400 miles we'll put on round trip I'm glad we're car pooling!

Diesel is the equivalent of $8.50 per US gallon here in the UK, so count yourselves lucky!
