SG And Fuel Costs: Part 6,472

In what is seeming to be all too common, with gas still being $1 more expensive per gallon than this time last year, groups are cutting expenses the best they can.  Some have lost bands (Kingsmen, BFA), some are restricting their schedule (Beene Family), some have come off the road completely.  The Dixie Melody Boys are selling their bus and purchasing a Dodge Sprinter van.  They are also very honest that the decision is due to rising fuel costs.  I’m really surprised that we haven’t seen more groups take this approach, though when you spend 200 days or so a year on the road, the relative comfort factor a bus gives makes it a tough thing to do without.
