This Week's Question | Previous Week's Answers


Last week, we passed the buck and asked AVweb readers a question that was put to us by one of you, AVweb reader Steve Allen: Which is the bigger threat to general aviation user fees or fuel prices?

Given the current state of our Fuel Finder, where 100LL prices have risen 84 since the beginning of the year, we weren't surprised by your answers. Rising fuel prices took the early lead over user fees and finished with a 60-40 majority in our informal poll. It seems you have your answer, Steve although we doubt it's helping you sleep any easier at night.

With avgas prices rising and technology moving forward, we're starting to hear a lot of doom-and-gloom predictions for the future of 100 low-lead. This week, we want to know your opinion on the matter.

How long do you think 100LL will be available?
