gas prices..WTF????

I know this is not very sexy...but do we always have to write about sex?

I cannot believe the price of gas...10 bucks can't even get me 4 gallons. It's crazy!!! I heard a joke on the radio this morning...they said the gas stations were going to make it easier on us by lubing the pumps with vaseline!! thought that was kinda funny, ......cause we are all getting screwed...thats for sure!

How much is gas where you live? I am in Florida and regular is 2.59 today.

Watch for the automobile companies to get their alternative fuel technology out into the marketplace. They've all had it for years but gas has been so cheap that the technology wasn't cost effective.

Eventually, when our overall consumption goes down significantly, the price of oil will drop, but by then there will be no turning back to the days of wreckless and uncontrolled gas consumption. Not only that, you can expect major improvements in the air quality of our largest cities.

Let me drive. I like the view

PatSam, Gas is a bit more expensive in texas, Dallas/ft.Worth- $2.60 something...and somehow still increasing.

drove from Oklahoma to Cleveland OH this past week

it was still $2.29 at some stations in Lawton OK
10 days ago but jumped to $2.44 last Tue. Generally
found $2.55 across the Interstates, except it was
$2.74 in Champaign, IL and again here in Cleveland
briefly. I have since found a couple of local
stations offering regular at $2.49 ... so a 25 cent
disparity across just a few highway exits.

well lets sewe i live around miami and usally the gas down here is around $2.79 (regular). but i been watching news and doing so research and from what i understand it's 3.99 for regular gas in california. now the only things is some news stations show this info herer and gas station owners see this and start jacking up the price's...pretty messed up if you ask me ....and i see that new cars will mostly be coming out especially for ford, dodge, and maybe chevy cause if the remain with the same inventory the company is most likley to die....i mean if you noticed all the compaines i mentiond have trucks ( v8, hemi,magnum) so those are all fuel guzzlers. man are world is going to shit in a hand basket....any one else agree ???

We are paying 2.20€uros for 5 litres, ca gallon.
thats about 5 times what you are paying in the states!!!

do you know that because of your old antiqated refiners, that most US oil companies have bought up most of the remaining available oil on the european market, thus pushing OUR prices up even higher,

Can't you all, just drive a little less , and drive smaller cars , and not those Gas Guzzelers ?

GB Cple: the U.S. is much more of a car culture than other countries. As for smaller cars, a lot of subcompacts that are common here in Canada (the Toyota Echo, for one) aren't even available in the U.S. - they prefer bigger cars.
I didn't know about the antiquated refineries.
