Oh-oh! It looks like we RVers will be paying a bit more for gasoline and diesel this summer.
According to RV Life:
They say what goes down must come up and RV gas and diesel costs are no exception. This summer you need to dig out about $200 from your RV couch cushions. That’s how much the average RVer will pour into their 2017 RV gas and diesel costs.
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, U.S. regular gasoline retail prices will go up to about $2.46/gallon (gal). Last summer they averaged $2.23/gal. The EIA considers the summer season for gasoline and diesel to run from April through September. During this time, U.S. regular gasoline retail prices will probably increase by about $.23/gallon. “. . . which, if realized, would result in the average U.S. household spending about $200 more on motor fuel in 2017 compared with 2016,” says the EIA.
During my November trip to Metropolis, Illinois, I was pleasantly surprised that many of the states I traveled through had gasoline prices under $2.00/gallon. That saved me a lot of money, considering The Beast has a 55 gallon gas tank.
