I'm confused. $5-$6/gallon gas will speed up the process of placing a cap on a PU? Building a garage? Making sure there are two chickens in every garage?
Oh, and I'm quite sure that Obama will get it at *least* that high, which will make you giddy, I'm sure. I just don't see how it's relevant to hanging a truck cap from a garage ceiling or the statement that it's hard if there is no garage. Please elaborate.
Why do you think any president has any say in the price of oil? FYI, the U.S. is currently on course to produce more oil and gas than the Saudis by 2020. If we're not drilling fast enough to suit you it's more than likely because there isn't an idle rig to be found with all the shale plays currently in the equation. But then, WTF do you know.

The President does have considerable say. No drilling => high prices. I suppose you've also heard of "carbon taxes".

Is that why Obama chased the Gulf oil rigs away?

Obviously a lot more than your typical lefty.

We're drilling right, left and sideways. President doesn't control drilling.
Non sequitur number 2.

Of which there is no nationwide carbon tax in the United States.
Non sequitur number three. You're out.

That hasn't been shown.

That's almost three years ago. The U.S. is producing more oil today than it has in decades. By 2020 the U.S. is projected to pass the Saudis in oil/gas exports.
U.S. oil production grew more in 2012 than in any year in the history of the domestic industry, which began in 1859, and is set to surge even more in 2013. Don't believe it? How's about the CIA? https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/rankorder/2173rank.html Big Oil continues to rake in record profits, free enterprise and the unrestricted market place is what all you conservatives crave and it's what you're getting. JFC, WTF do you people want?

The fact that Obama cut production in the gulf over the BP fiasco did not and does not dictate future drilling.
I was simply indicating that the president did in fact control drilling in the gulf contrairy to the statement that the president doesn't control drilling.
Little things drive oil prices and still smaller things drive gasoline prices. Friday night changes the price of gasoline regardless of the oil prices, A holiday changes the price of gasoline regardless of the oil prices. Gasoline prices are changed to what the market will bare, not by the supply on hand.

Bush made it at *least* that high, and it went back down (I paid $6/gallon at El Portal in 2007).
Adjusted for inflation, it was higher in the 70's ($1.50 in 1975 is 6.18 today). The current high prices are because refineries are off-line doing maintenance; not sure how either that, or the current spot market price for a BBL of oil can be attributed to any president, given that congress makes laws and the soi disant free market sets prices. In fact, one of the factors that will lead to higher prices is the ag-lobbies insistence on forcing the refineries to use expensive ethanol instead of just using cleaner petroleum products, which reduces the energy content of a gallon of gas and wastes the corn. A dry summer this year will seriously affect gas prices, food prices and others because of the stupid ethanol rules (Energy Policy Act of 2005, Energy Independence Act of 2007).
All of which was mandated by congress and the ag lobby.

ANd assuming you can get into it. There hasn't been anything resembling a car or truck in mine for about 25 years - - - - .

The 3 or 4 piece folders are nice. Fold them up, pull the pins, and pop it off. Depending what you are carrying you can leave the tonneau inside the box.

The Truxport and Truxedo soft tonneau covers use velcro rather than snaps and are much easier quicker to deploy or roll up regardless of temperature. Also, having had the snap type in AZ, the snaps are really hot to the touch in summer!
Also, there are folding and retractable hard covers although a bit pricey.

I plan on either carrying over my Truxedo to a new truck one of these days, or purchasing another Truxedo.
For my purposes (and the ability to _quickly_ convert to carry tall items like cabinets and furniture) of all the pickup bed cover solutions I've used down through the years, the Truxedo is the most versatile, fastest (under a minute), and has the fewest compromises of all.
Of course, YMMV ...

Forget the snaps being hot - the Fargo was metallic BLACK - you could fry eggs on it on an average summer day

I bought a used 2004 Chev Duramax diesel with a regular cab and long bed in 2007 to tow a 5th wheel. At 3 years old and 54k miles, it was less than half the price of a new one. Now at 128k miles, it is just about broken in. It also gets up to 23 mpg highway and 14 mpg towing a 10k lb trailer. There are used trucks from RV users because they want a long bed to avoid having to use a sliding 5th wheel hitch.
