Daily Blog – John E. Johnson, Jr. – April 28, 2008: THAT'S IT ON THE SUV, EVEN THOUGH I NEED ONE TO CARRY BIG SPEAKERS.

Well, I am paying $4.00 a gallon for gas now, and it will go to $6 probably within a year, maybe sooner.

I have a big SUV because I really need one, to carry large speaker shipping boxes (with the speakers still in them). Sometimes I have to meet the 18 wheel truck at the bottom of our hill because they can’t drive on a small road. So, I bring the SUV there, they put the speakers in the trunk area, I sign the paperwork, and off we both go.

I think they are going to have to figure out a way to get the speakers to my office on their own. The next car is going to be a small one. At least a hybrid. I would prefer a 100% electric.

My SUV gets about 10 miles per gallon. Even at $4/gallon, that is almost 50 cents per mile, not including oil, maintenance, and insurance.

But like I said before, I will still have a great stereo in that small car. No compromise with my audio.
