    Default Gas. at what point do you cut back

    Just wondering at what price everyone will slow down going out-maybe skip a day type thing.

    Vacations dont count.

    skip days on the lake? no
    not drive as much around town and spend more time at the house on planned non lake days, oh yes

    Hell, up here I will go as much as I can just like every year. If I can get out 12-15 times I'm lucky. $8 a gallon won't change my boating much

    I started cutting back when gas hit $1.00 a gallon. I've now cut back as much as I'm going to.

    won't cut back at days on the lake, but will def. cut back on the recreating once it's over $4.50. more days heading up and just chillin on the dock.
    hate to say it, but the last couple of years, I have not had an issue entertaining peeps at the lake and not expecting much in return, but those days are over this summer. you want to go, then pay a fair share.

    to quote an old bumper sticker I saw years ago: gas, grass or a$$, no one rides for free

    Like everyone else, we'll just grin and bear it. Fortuntely buying on the water the price is pretty stable, I think we were around $4/gal all year last year, $5 the year before.

    I didn't buy a boat to keep it in the garage But I am hoping that the guest start bringing a little more gas money.

    I'll spend less on groceries, take fewer hot showers, and stop buying newpapers if that's what it takes to keep fuel in my boat. Man, I just love being on the water with family and friends. No intention of letting price slow me down.

    I'd conserve beer before I cut back on boat gas. Things would have to get really bad before that would ever happen because I loves me some beer!
