Yes. That is one of the reasons we will be selling the motorhome this Spring. A TT to tow behind the diesel truck may be in the future if the MH sells.
Converting to a fixed income lifestyle requires some changes!

Were also on fixed income so yeah high fuel costs will effect distance from home and how often we travel.
Hopefully like the last 5 bucks a gallon it will slow the speeders down like last time we faced 5 bucks a gallon.

Gas prices and Inflation will effect how I vote but not if I travel.

I live fairly close to all my areas of interest for camping, kayak fishing and hiking so I will still do frequent trips for short stays. Cheers to the New Year.

Went from energy independent to buying off shore with change of administration and limiting domestic production. We have the oil but current administration has restricted production. Maybe to make electric vehicles look better--maybe.

In my case since I own producing oil & gas leases the increased income from these will cover the increase at the pump. I will still travel.

I don’t know. Oil companies have to want to pump it as well.

What Reisender posts is right on the mark. When WTI prices fell below $50 a barrel, the endless prattle on financial media revolved around producers in the Bakken region of North Dakota and Permian Basin in Texas faced with the decision to continuing to sell for less than production cost and risk bankruptcy, or leave their oil in the ground and risk bankruptcy. Mostly "independent" producers, but lot of crude nonetheless.

Yes. The frackers went bankrupt when the oil prices dropped due to increased production from the big 3. Then the pandemic hit and pushed prices down again.

Now that prices are rising the frackers are coming back. Although most have measured increases closer to 10% compared to the previous maximum expansion.

Electric vehicles are reducing demand so they do benefit those that want energy independence and low gasoline prices. The EV effect will never be noticed as it will be spread over decades.
