My first car truck gas wars were going on .24 a gallon, diesel was the same. I remember one time the ARCO on 6th Ave in Tacoma it was .19.

Costs me 38 cents per mile. Bit more towing the boat. I will hunt regardless. Money just gets pulled from someplace else

About 26 bucks an hour at 70 mph!? Of course idk how far you drive but I have to do over 250 miles round trip to my closest blind and would like to but no ride share after my former hunt buddy got upset about this subject I brought up and will never forgive because he doesn’t even forgive himself.  Fun facts are great, but real facts always have a different story often met with denial.  Thinking is a lost art these days for most.
Don't read my post if facts hurt your feeling.

Fuel prices don't really slow me down.  I just find that I load my gear in the back of my car now more and hunt out of it vs. my Ford F350 w/ 6.7 as it gets around 12.4mpg.  Considered getting a subaru outback and using that as my hunting rig.

Why is your 6.7 getting 12.4 mpg? Towing? Mine gets 17.5 with a leveling kit on 35in tires.

my two main spots are 128 miles round trip from Rochester. I'll hunt 3 times a week. Maybe a few close trips in the valley. It does add up, but the recreational value offsets the cost.

Just got back from Montana, so I guess I haven't hit my limit yet.  For hunting, the cost isn't that much more but I feel for the guy that has a long commute he has to do every day.

I'm actually really surprised there hasn't been an initiative, seems like they could get signatures pretty quick.

They're collecting signatures outside the enumclaw QFC for it the other day. I was in a hurry and didn't want to wait behind the four other people so I didn't sign.

Inslee is putting pressure on oil companies to account for the cost of fuel that comes with him blaming them for the increase. Some folks that suffer are groups that have in the past received excess money from me, as in donations. Jay can keep those boats afloat with the cost savings from his electric airplane he doesn't travel in.

It's one of the reasons I won't be hunting this year.
