Why not fly????You're probably not far from being right. I'm getting ready to travel to PA from CA and guessing my gas will be about $1000-$1200 if I take it really easy.
The way things are going for us here in the states, we will be making about that pretty soon.Just think of the people in Kenya and Uganda. Petrol (gas) there costs around the same as here in Oz - about $1.50 per litre (roughly $6 per gallon.) Difference is, most people there live on between $2 and $5 per day.
I'm sure probably more than the price of gas.I imagine the extra baggage fees for a u-haul trailer would be quite prohibitive.
I have just paid for the flights for my Malaysia trip (see prayer requests). As well as the actual fare, the detailed receipt lists:I'm sure probably more than the price of gas.
Have you heard the latest: Airlines are going to soon charge extra for a seat to sit in while flying, and there will be a surcharge on air to breath.
