Motorcycling & High Fuel Prices



greetings to the mobile blogging community subscribers and fellow youtubers alike trike tacular ear just out and about this morning for a nice ride before it gets too hot we've been having a heat spell here on the southwest coast of British Columbia Canada and we're only at the beginning of me yesterday had got to about 87 degrees Fahrenheit so weather's when you continue being warm so I thought I'd get out this morning and just go for a little ride on King that's my pre-owned 2016 harley-davidson Road King just exploring some roads in the countryside I've never been out along this stretch before so I wanted to come and see where some of these roads lead to that's one of the fun things about motorcycling I find is just getting out and exploring some different roads in your area places that we normally wouldn't ride but just going out in our vehicle so gas prices are crazy here in our neck of the woods today it was a dollar 53 a liter for regular unleaded 91 octane was a dollar 74 a liter and yesterday for regular unleaded gasoline it was a dollar 43 so that's a jump of 10 cents just in one day but I should have really got out and filled up the bike yesterday because it's kind of knowing that once you get to the weekend today is Friday the prices jump then usually they go down the following Monday or Tuesday it's really ridiculous it's an old tractor on display at these people's entrance to the driveway that's pretty neat big house there to the right some of these houses on the farmland are really big looks like a four car garage there so it would be interesting to know if where you live are your gas prices jumping as well they seem to be high all through the Pacific Northwest right now gas companies say the prices usually go up in the summer months because they use a special blend of gasoline for the summer months which puzzled what that would be you think they need a different blend for the fall and winter but maybe they do as well and then of course the refineries in Washington State they say had to shut down for maintenance so seems like there's always this an excuse to jack up the price but it's the pill we have to swallow if we want to get out and ride on our motorcycles and vehicles but especially for the people working that almost becomes essential the gasoline to commute to work and so many taxes we are hit upon per leader here as well so anywho I'll just carry on with my ride so I'd like to thank you for joining me today if this is your first time viewing your channel and you enjoy this Auto Blog I welcome you to comment subscribe if you like so until next time this is Trek tacular wishing you all a pleasant day take care and ride safe bye bye

  1. Our gas prices have been all over the place since the 4th of July weekend. We are at $2.60 per gallon for regular, and about $3.05 per gallon for premium, which is what my bike takes. Gasoline is a commodity, and the price fluctuates almost daily. Ya gotta have it, so there's not much you can do about it. Great to see you out riding, my friend. Stay safe.

  3. Late Saturday evening has been the time to buy gas in Town. For the past couple of weeks I have been able to fuel up for $1.28 Litre. Of course the fuel companies/Government have us well trained…they raise the price to $2.00 and we will be happy to pay $1.50! Beautiful farms in that area…must be owned by oil Tycoons!! :).

  4. I always buy premium grade for the bikes and right now it is close to $3 a US gallon. Not too bad really. The Spyder gets about 35 miles/gal and my old V Star gets 45-50 miles/gal. Great video and take care.
