We have been planning our 6 week spring trip pulling the AF25R with the Chev 2500hd (6.0 gasser) from home in. CA to Utah,NM, and southern Colorado. Planning to hit the road end of March.

Wow! Now I’m not so sure. >$5.00 a gallon regular gas at 8mpg. Hmmmm, I can afford it but worry about a supply disruption at the pump and getting stranded. This situation with RUS-UKR doesn’t bode well. What unintended consequences could could ensue? What are you all doing these days? Going for it anyway? Or sitting this one out?

A supply disruption will have many impacts before it stops fuel at the pump. I'd enjoy the trip and be thankful I could go.

There shouldn't be any supply disruption due to the Russian oil import ban. Last year the US only got about 3% of its imported oil from Russia. About 61% of the imports came from Canada. The Russia ban won't even cause a ripple in the fuel supply. The US is still oil export positive. Pricing on the other hand, is anyone's guess. My attitude is "Pay is pay it or park it." A $1/gallon fuel price increase adds $120/1000 miles, and I can handle that. Not happily of course, but we'll keep right on living and moving in our motorhome even if it means cutting the budget in other areas.

I can think all kinds of calamities real and imagined that would keep me from going.
But the reality is you should go now why you are healthy and able.

Our vacation starting in April is still a go. We will be traveling about 5000 miles and get about 10 mpg. If gas prices go from my planned $4 to an actual $5 per gallon, I spend an extra $500. Compared to the total cost of a trip like this, it is not all that much extra cash. If enough people park their campers, I should have an easier time getting a nice camp site.

We are better positioned for this one than the last one. The last one we had a 35 foot gas motor home pulling a jeep that got 6-8 mpg. This time we have a Tacoma pulling a small Airstream. So we don't envision any change in plans.

The higher the cost of fuel, the fewer miles I will go. I have never been able to afford all I want,.......of anything expensive.
