    Thanks. I actually looked for a white Lariat, but nice F150's are impossible to find around here. I had to drive to another state to get this one. Got it right before COVID - super lucky.

    Just paid $4.11 yesterday for 91 Octane Non-Ethanol. We're lucky that we have that around here.

    Been super impressed with the F150 mileage so far.

    I got back just in time from our drive from CT to south west FL...and back. Was filling my truck a lot, averaging $3.29 or so....on the drive back last week saw it climbing to $3.49 in some southern states, $3.59 or so in New Jersey..and that was my last fill up. Now it's over $4.

    Still, back in 2007 or so when the last big price hike came out, when you factor in inflation, we're not in as much "pain" as we were back in 2007.

    Wish we were still striving for oil independence like we were prior to a year ago.....now biden wants to turn to back to buying oil from Venezuela and the middle east....bad bad bad......bad bad bad.....

    Really like my F-150 Lariat 5.0, but I dare not let it get below 3/4 of a tank these days as 36 gallons x $4.299 is about $154 of sorrow. Last time this happened, we panicked and bought a teeny weeny little car. Wife hated it, but 30mpg was nice. Wife drives a Jeep Renegade and it actually does well on mileage - about 26/30. Hoping for the best and soon.

    US is the world's largest oil producer, we produce 20% of the world's oil, 18+Million barrels per day. The next two are Saudi Arabia (12%) and Russia (11%). Russia has twice our explorable oil reserves, SA has like 8 times our oil reserves.
    We currently consume about 19.5 Million barrels per day, 20.5% of the world's consumption. We are still energy-independent, and an exporter if you count natural gas and other fuels.

    For comparison, in 2006 we produced 8M bpd, 2016 - 14.8M bpd.

    We have 35.5 Bn barrels of proven oil reserves that can be explored with current technology. At this rate, we will use up all our domestic oil reserves in 5 years. What will we drill then?
    With all that in mind, how much more do we need to produce per year?

    Gas prices are dependent on international market price per barrel, not directly our oil production. We're already using up our explorable oil reserves much faster than most other countries in the world.

    Every gallon of gasoline saved or megawatt of energy not used is the equivalent of producing more. I believe we will eventually get to the point where renewable energy becomes not only abundant, but also efficient. We are not there yet and and telling people to buy a $60000 TESLA is just dumb as we all know where electricity comes from. I believe we (USA) are becoming better stewards every day and we can get to where we need to be without crippling the economy. Wise leadership, now that is another discussion.

    Yeah, EV's have a long way to go. I believe in searching for alternative energy for transportation, (such as electric)....but, with current technology, electric isn't there yet. And it just puts (moves) the pollution and/or bad environmental impact "out of site, like...in some other country but yours". So you feel better about your immediate surroundings, yet...causing problems for some 3rd world place across the planet. Home insurance is starting to get higher if you have an electric vehicle in a garage. Auto insurance is higher with electric cars. Owning a car for near 10 years or more...electrics get crazy expensive because of replacing those batteries at near 10k. And them making the electricity to charge them up...puts more and more of a strain on the grid. And what type of power source is creating the juice for the grid that you're on?

    I think it will get there. And it will take some time for technology to evolve..and many users have to be "guinea pigs" helping that technology to evolve.
    I drive way too much and often for long distances, so it's currently not a tech for me. For my wife...she just does rare short drives....it would work for her.
