WOW In Central Florida regular is $3.99, but will probably be over $4 tomorrow. There is variation between stations also which we hadn't seen too much of lately. It pays to shop around.

All crude oil is not the same. The Balkin oil is light The Canadian tar sands is very viscous as it has been sitting around near or at the surface for 400 million years. We have to ship light fractions from the US to make it less viscous so they can ship it. Very hard to keep track of it all. We are the world's largest producer of products made with oil. (Like plastics and much of what we use daily). We export and import many other products. (cheese, beer, almonds, drugs, LNG because of lack of pipelines in the NE states ETC). The failed Build Back Better Bill had an increase from $7500 to $12,500 for the EV subsidy. EV's have been right around the corner for the last 25 years.

The Hindenburg was hydrogen. (Oh, the Humanity.) Lots of history on the safety of LNG from Europe. Very Good. With LNG, it is hard to get rid of the excess coldness when it converts back to CNG. The long-haul trucks use this to cool the engines in place of radiators. I don't see LNG taking off in the US as we have such an extensive network of CNG pipelines. Many years ago, I would sail in Tampa Bay and see Russian LNG ships bringing it into Hooker Point. They used LNG for fuel.

CNG is very safe. It is lighter than air and vents upwards into the air if the tank is ruptured. Used all over the nation. Works very well with equipment that works only part of the day like trash haulers, buses and personal vehicles. IC cars can be converted. Home compressors are still pretty expensive is the only reason I haven't converted my car. LNG is widely used by European long-haul truckers. The price has skyrocketed in the last year due to political reasons and the NE doesn't have anywhere the pipeline capacity to even heat homes.

RE: RV Fuel Issues & Prices - Post 'Em Here!

In the Jimmy Carter era, we were told we had 11 years of oil remaining. The technology has changed drastically with the introduction of fracking and horizontal drilling. We are estimated to have over a century of oil and gas now. In my estimation, a yet unknown source of energy will be discovered and most of that will remain in the ground. Politics is now drastically limiting our production of oil and gas. In the last year, we have gone from a net exporter of oil and gas to a net importer of both. The folks we are buying from now love to shout, "Death to America". I would love to see us switch to CNG for transportation fuel. It is much cheaper and safer than electricity. Over 70% of the new garbage haulers are now CNG.
