    I started riding my bike (motor-type) to run errands. I am not giving up my truck as that would be a sin!

    Gator, it is a buyers market, but it's harder to get loans now. If you can get a loan, and really afford it, it's a great time to buy. Part of why I don't want to get into that is the business I'm in changes rapidly, it's growing but it's still unstable. I may be taking a pay cut soon pending a promotion that disqualifies me from OT pay, it's not the time for myself to buy.

    For now, I'm going to drive conservatively and log how much I can lower what I spend on gas. I stuck the old K&N hot air intake on since I'm on freeways so often I figure it should help. When I started this thread, gas was $4.13 for 87, driving home it was $4.39.
    OK. Thanks for the info. I hear you on the rising gas prices. I retired August so I now stay home a lot. I've worked for a paycheck since I was 15. Back then I could drive myself down dirt roads to a farm to work during summer. Gas was 29.9 cents a gallon. So, I've worked 50 years and now gas prices keep me home. Oh, I can go out or take a trip if I want to but all unnecessary driving has stopped. Thanks for sharing your views.
