We are doing a Canadian East coast trip this summer and plan to travel approx 6,000 km's. With Canadian gas prices being as high as they are I am now looking at driving back through ME to take advantage of some cheaper US gas.

IF I go to the east coast of Canada this summer I will do much of it through the USA to get the cheaper fuel. Can save about $1.00 a gallon and shorten the distance too by doing that

2004 Chev Silverado Duramax optioned past the max. 2009 Jayco Eagle 308 RLS 765 watts of solar, 6-6 volt batteries (696 amp hour), 2000 watt (4000 surge) whole house inverter.

We have several trips planned for this summer. Montana for a week or so and the Oregon coast for at least a week, St.Anthony dunes for several days, gotta give the new RZR some exercise.
2011 Eagle 330RLTS with just about every option.
Dodge SRW 1 ton Cummins powered.

I was born with nothing and I still have most of it left.

I voted none because the campgrounds I camp at are all within 60 miles from home.

Fuel is not a significant part of the cost of camping. The difference between $80 to $150 is not enough to deter us from enjoying our time away from 'civilization'.

Diesel fuel in SC is very low compared to past years. We have not changed any plans, just made more plans and research our fuel purchases to take advantage of lowest prices.

Last week I paid $2.449 for diesel.

Many stations in South Dakota have Diesel cheaper than regular by 20 cents.
