More Gloom and Doom for Boating Businesses

July 7, 2008

Lake Tahoe is one of the most beautiful places in the US, in my opinion, but even they are having trouble luring boaters out on the lake with $6/gallon gasoline. This story from the local newspaper does not inspire much optimism, even though the title tries to ‘buoy’ hopes. See what I did there? I’m pretty good.

Anyways, yeah, gas is expensive, and yeah, it’s really expensive if you’re doing lakefront fill-up. But, one guy in the story kind of has a point, in that it is ‘only’ $1 more than last year, and that maybe people think the extra $50 is worth it. This guy said it would be $20 more, but I don’t know of many boats with a 20 gallon tank. So $50. Okay, it’s not much of a point. For vehicles getting 1-3 mpg (boats!!!), this sucks.
