    Gas prices are now at a 3-year high in the States.

    May Mirage sales were up 32% vs. last May. The 6th gen has only sold 3k+ in 6 other months.

    And these may be private sales vs. fleet Mirages: the number of new members to the forum in May was also up nicely. Highest since August of last year.

    Yeah fuel prices don't seem to be going down anytime soon

    I miss the junkyard day's when random lowlifes would show up in a borrowed(stolen) truck and a tidytank full of diesel(also stolen) looking for a few bucks so they could buy groceries(buy some meth). Good times.....except for the guy who owned the truck and the license plate, and fuel card.

    Only $60? My last few tanks took $150 to fill with diesel. Gas seems to cost a little more around here right now. If it goes much higher I'll have to buy cheaper beer or give mouthwash a try?

    Gas is $6/gal here. Jeeps gets 10mpg, mitsu gets 45. Good balance.

    This is the big reason I bought mine.

    Gas will not stay cheap forever.
