sweet until you need to refuel!

what are fuel prices like in your area? Gas is $3.50 a gallon and diesel is up to $3.90.

i don't know how people who drive SUVs afford it.

Ha! It's higher than that here! Gas in NY state is arouns 3.80 regular. OR was last time I remember going to the pump.

My Dakota has a 20 gallon tank and a V8. Do the math! I am grateful work is 12 miles away!

That truck is 7 years younger than me and way cooler. Your vet is from VT?
Meredith, gas is, last time I saw a pump, $3.59/gal in my part of Maine. Those of us who drive V8 SUVs plan our trips and make fewer of them if we can. #2 heating oil is no bargain either so a lot of people have once again converted to wood just like we did in the 70s.

love this truck-there are a lot more vintage trucks around then one thinks especially here in tx -no snow-no salt-low humidy =no rust; always good to see another one loved and preserved

We had a green one when our oldest was a baby. It was all we could do to get us and a car seat in that truck! Oh, what great memories.

And gas in Chatt, Tn. is $3.25. Just over the Ga. line it's $3.35. (A few weeks ago it was just $3.10!)And I have a Trooper. Ugh!

I have no idea what regular goes for in the Portland area of Portland because we have a vehicle into which my husband will pour nothing but premium, and we consistently pay around $4/gal for that...
