Last week, AVweb asked how much you'd be willing to pay for avgas
before you seriously considered (shudder) giving up flying.
Over a third of our respondents (35%) said that $5.00 a gallon
would do the trick.
Nearly a quarter (24%) said $6.50 per gallon would be the
14% of those who answered last week's "Question" were ready to
hang up their wings at $9.00 a gallon.
A mere 17 readers (3% of those polled) were willing to hold out
for $12.00/gallon avgas before they considered giving up the skies.
And another 24% of readers said it'd take more than $12 avgas to
keep them out of the air. (Just don't tell the petrol
companies you feel that way all right, guys?)
*** THIS WEEK'S QUESTION ***
With the FAA

of aviation in the U.S.A.? Consider our list of (some of the)
possibilities, and tell us which one you think might be a glimpse
into the future.
