It's the time of year when many of you enjoy fun on the water.  But with gas prices so high, you have to decide whether to fill up your boat or park it.

At the Lake Chehaw boat landing in Albany, boats and jet skis hit the water every day.

And regulars tell us that despite steep fuel prices the lake stays pretty busy.

"I haven't seen a difference. During the weekend when it's real hot, you can't even get into the parking lot. I mean they're full. They're parked up on the road up here and on the side up by the road." said Arthur Handley of Albany.

A gallon of fuel at the marina on Lake Blackshear at the Georgia Veterans State Park will cost you $4.49 per gallon.

That's about average when compared to other marinas around the country.
