How much did you spend on gas?

With gas prices what they are, how much did you pay in gas to get to Dday?

The guy that hauled our two tanks out reported over $1000 one way... Pick up truck hauling a trailer. Mini tanks, but one was a fairly heavy little vehicle.

I have to assume the gas prices is the reason three of our larger tanks (ODX and Bravo 2-0's) in the Commonwealth didnt make the trip. They were gonna end up hauling them on a transfer truck...

I think that was me you're talking about. Silver Dodge RAM with the 2 Blackheart tanks.. It was about $1000 roundtrip, not one way. 850 miles each way, and we averaged about 11MPG.

Another interesting gas figure: the helicopter that was buzzing around burns 14 gallons an hour of AvGas, which is about $4.30 at the moment. Figuring it flew on and off for three days...I'm happy for my 25mpg!

Yes, they also charged like $25 per passenger for a 20 minute flight.. The gas cost was more than covered.
