Question 2007 Fuel Price Survey

Ok soothsayers & naysayers. Don your magic caps and polish your chrystal balls. What do you think will be the top price you'll pay for fuel this summer? Pick yours, gas or diesel, doesn't matter. Prices shown are in Canadian $ converted at todays US exchange rate (0.8632). We'll use the Universally Accepted Litre as the most common denominator. If anybody wants to have me display other currencies just ask and we'll see what we can do.

Yours Aye! Rick

I'm paying $3 - $4 for a gallon of diesel in the Caribbean presently.

Well, I picked $1.05/ltr Cdn. Not that *I* care .. I have a SAIL boat. In the 7 years I've owned my boat, I've put 55 hours on the engine ... and used maybe 65 us gallons. :::shrug:::

I think last season I used about 4 gallons of gas.

They say the wind is free, but I don't think they priced sails lately.
