Daily Blog – John E. Johnson, Jr. – April 28, 2008: THAT’S IT ON THE SUV, EVEN THOUGH I NEED ONE TO CARRY BIG SPEAKERS.

Well, I am paying $4.00 a gallon for gas now, and it will go to $6 probably within a year, maybe sooner.

I have a big SUV because I really need one, to carry large speaker shipping boxes (with the speakers still in them). Sometimes I have to meet the 18 wheel truck at the bottom of our hill because they can’t drive on a small road. So, I bring the SUV there, they put the speakers in the trunk area, I sign the paperwork, and off we both go.

I think they are going to have to figure out a way to get the speakers to my office on their own. The next car is going to be a small one. At least a hybrid. I would prefer a 100% electric.

My SUV gets about 10 miles per gallon. Even at $4/gallon, that is almost 50 cents per mile, not including oil, maintenance, and insurance.

But like I said before, I will still have a great stereo in that small car. No compromise with my audio.

    Wow. 4$, eh? I wish I was paying 4$/gal. At the 1.359/litre yesterday, I’m paying 5.13$/gal. Actually I quite agree that my next vehicle will be more fuel efficient (at 4$/gal I was already thinking about it, and now that it is over 5$, I’m looking to go even smaller/more efficient). With two kids, there is a limit as to how small I can comfortably go, but it will certainly be a major factor.
