CAP training budgets look like a rounding error compared to other organizations, but they are budgets. Higher fuel prices means less hours flown preparing for missions.
At our home base, we already get the, "Good Guy Discount," from our FBO. We don't pay tax, and we don't pay flow fees... so we're lucky.

Sure I get that funny look from the line guy when I put 5 gallons into the mighty Skylane after a short hop, "Sorry to bug you, but she's like a fire truck, we gotta keep her topped off."
It still stings.
