    how is the price of gas going to aflect your going to powwows this year?

  • #2
    We're REAL close to hitting $3.00/gallon and I can almost guarantee it will be there as the summer rolls on. With a 2006 Suburban that's bad news. I have a 30 gallon that's what??? $90.00/tank!!!

    But I'm a hard core pow-wow girl! Just gonna have to pile in all of my homies and take a crew EVERYWHERE I Gonna have to split the cost because that's just crazy!

      Yeupp.....Thats how we're gonna be doing it too. *S*. Pile as many people in the car and split the costs. Plus camping instead of hitting the hotels. Last summer when the costs were just as high, we ended up staying local or min or 3 hrs to a powwow.
      You have crossed my path, You will never be forgotten......

        I think it will hurt some of the smaller dances that are not in the heart of NDN communities. I hope not.

        I know we will have to select our dances and limit the ones we go to, mostly close to home. We have one long distance dance we will go to. We go to this dance every year.

          As of monday, the regular unleaded was $3.25! It's pretty depressing!!! The newspaper says the gas will probaly go even higher. So, i don't know what will happen with long distance pws this year. Unfortnately, when gas goes up-everything else goes up, too!!!!!!

            Yep, you got that right. We ordered a pizza last week and they are now including a delivery charge. Gas prices are outrageous. It is already starting to affect us as far as going tp p/w's. We are just gonna have to pick and choose carefully.
            Through the good times and bad times, always pray.

              At Wal Mart a few weeks ago, I saw some summer tops that I wanted to buy. I checked them out the following week and the gas prices were not even at $3.00 yet and those tops went up a dollar. They were already in the store when the gas went up!!! WTF!!!

                probably stick close to home ... gas is like gold nowadays .. lol.

                ppl phoning for rides to the store or whatever, used to do for nothing but now gotta charge ... or just say no

                      Gas has actually just went down 1 cent. We now pay $2.73. I hope it goes down some more. I need to fill up my truck soon.

                                by CHEROSAGE
                                With the price of gas rising the way it is, what do you all think will happen to our local Powwows?

                                I am concerned for our local Powwows possibly having to cancel out. Our dance won't cancel this year, but I am concerned about those that have traveled many miles to come help us out may...

                                How many of you care to even see tipis at a dance?

                                by Wojapi4Me
                                Since February is Black History Month, and we're being inundated with those messages on TV, it got me to thinking about the mythical concept of Indian Unification. Is this possible?

                                Blacks were able to unify because they identify themselves by a race, not a culturally-specific group....
