Default $20 Gas in a Motorcycle!!!

Ran some errands and cruised a little on the motorsickle today. Fuel light came on so I stopped in and filled it up. $20 + change!!! I have NEVER put $20 in a motorcycle before. Damn this is getting ugly.

Thank you for letting me vent.

Hell $15 for lawn mower gas today

Guess I am going to have to start dragging lines behind the Snapper in hopes of catching something this summer

No, I'm getting 40+ mpg and still had to pay $20 for a fill up.

Day before election in 2008 gas was $2.21/gal here in Santa Rosa after coming off a high. Never saw that again.

I had 2 - 5 gal cans and filled up my f150. When I went in to the counter to sign my slip the clerk was shocked and asked me if it was right.
