    Possibly due to federal DOT funding cuts. ODOT is hard pressed to fund the projects they had planned on doing.

    That and the mandated increased efficiency standards and tax breaks on electric cars have driven down the amount of gas people are buying. They did it to themselves.

    I think people are buying fewer gallons of fuel simply because at $4/gal you simply have to make changes in your life. A few years ago I had two rigs that I drove, A 2004 F250 Diesel and a 1996 GMC one ton van. A year ago or so I bought a little Nissan that gets 30 MPG, cut my fuel consumption by 60% I am not alone, people simply cant drive something that gets 10 MPG anymore. You see how cheap big block trucks have gotten?

    I used to spend $200+ a month for fuel just for fishing.
    That's when fuel was around $2.50 a gallon, now I limit my fishing due to $4 per gallon prices. Don't get me wrong I love fishing but just can't afford filling thetank & going like I uused to. ...
