Your One Stop Source For All The Information You Need For Your Vehicles.
Hello everyone!!! Well, I've been busy these last couple of weeks so I've fallen behind on several projects I've been working on for the site. I did manage to add model year 2005 to the Engine Firing Orders page and I hope to have 2006 up by the middle of the month.
The Motor Vehicle Recalls section will be revamped to make it easier and quicker to navigate. It is difficult to keep up with the because there is so many more these days. All in all I will be spend much more time making this site even bigger and better than it is now. I work alone so it just takes time. You help and support is what keeps this web site free so your continued support will be needed now more than ever. Thank you!

I'm sure by now everyone has noticed gas prices have been dropping steadily. I'm down to $2.68.9 for unleaded regular with more drops expected. According to what I have read in the wall Street Journal, some analysts think we could see $40.00 a barrel oil again. If that's so we can expect gas prices to fall to about $1.50 or so in the coming weeks. Of course them OPECers don't like that and are thinking up ways to prevent that.
We really need to come up with ways to become energy self-sufficient again so we can tell them OPECers where they can stick their oil. It's a case of mind over matter; if we don't mind conserving, their oil doesn't matter.
Highest gas price for unleaded regular in the country (as of Thu 10/9/08 11:05 AM):
606 Bison St near 3rd Ave
$7.25.9 regular unleaded.
