We leave saturday. And now we are deciding what to drive. The jeep grand cherrokee or the dodge ram 2500 turbo diesel. the jeep gets approx. 20mpg ,the truck i dont know for sure. maybe about 20 also. I hate when i worry. the effect that rita might have on gas has me worried.

I thought Diesels got better mileage?

yes they do. we live in upstate sc and i dont know if i am used to the truck enough to in florida traffic. but i think we might take it. Also while we hod our gas shortage we could find diesel faster than gas.

My husband says, with the price of gas at the moment you'd be foolish to drive at all. :teeth:

Is it too far to bike to Disney?

I would opt for gas over diesel if you are worried about shortages. It is true that a more stations are likely to run out of gas before they run out of diesel, but there are a heck of a lot more stations selling gas.

It could go either way.
