Was on my way up through the Panhandle a week or so ago, and a retailer had gasoline at $1.66/gl.

At that price, who cares?

Thatís the 1994 $1.00/gl.

Today a 400HP 6.2L GM Truck can hit 25-mpg at sub-60.

A 1992 255HP 7.5L GM couldnít hit 12-mpg at that speed.

My dad has a 1999 of the same, but the frame rusted out on it. Good truck otherwise....besides the MPG.

We're NOT in the Age of Aquarius, but the Age of "don'T rump". How quickly is "don'T rumpism" spreading? Very quickly.
