Re: F... gas prices

Sure, you're absolutely right. Blocking the Keystone pipeline, banning off-shore drilling by Domestic companies after a foreign company had an accident and generally not allowing us to explore ANY of our own options like oil shale have no effect on gas prices.


Besides, it's YOUR fault. The President said so.

President Obama Blames You for High Gas Prices

U.S. Dependency On Foreign Oil Drops | the earthy report

Federal report: U.S. oil imports down, domestic production highest since 2003 - Los Angeles Times

So our dependency of foreign oil is down and we are using more of our own self made energy...who is too blame. Its tough to nail down, but my personal belief is Wall Street and the Oil companys, they are in bed together. Guaranty the 5 major oil companies will be in the top 10 of highest profits of the year as well in the quarters. They always do..........what does that tell everybody?

Re: F... gas prices

I found it hard to swallow that the leader of arguably the most powerful nation on earth can have no affect on local gas prices.

Exactly; it is what it is.

What sucks is I will still fill my tank but I will just have to adjust my budget and normally that means taking dollars from my entertainment budget.

So I will have my gas and the gas kings will have their money but the local pizza shop I always get pizza from on Friday nights might be out my $12 a week, those are the guys that get really burned.

Re: F... gas prices

While it totally pisses me off, I can't imagine actually changing my driving habits until it gets something like 8-9 dollars a gallon (God forbid). I mean when I break it down, I miss the days of a $10 fill-up, but I don't do enough driving to get upset when I pay an extra $10-$20 per fill-up.

It sucks, and I hate it, but I think a lot of us are creatures of habit and might not be willing to change.

Re: F... gas prices

I have changed my habits already, I work at least once per week from home and i'm going to start doing that twice a week if the prices get up to the level of the projections. It's not even the money so much as the idea of only using what you need. Got rid of my truck, bought a much more fuel efficient car... every little bit helps til they figure out how to make H work.

Also, having lived in western europe for most of my 20's, let me just say that we still have no ****ing clue what high gas prices truly are.

What the hell are you talking about, missing the days of a 10 dollar fill up? You're 20 years old lol. I'm 3 years older than you and I've never been able to fill up my car on 10 bucks ever. You're slipping, PWNED.

Re: F... gas prices

It really is getting ridiculous. I'm lucky my new job is close to my house. At this point it's costing me $40+ to fill up a sedan with low grade fuel, and Georgia is one of the friendlier states in terms of gas prices.

Still can't believe how 10 years ago it was like $0.99 a gallon.

You can't compare the two. Their gas price is the same its the taxes on top of the gas prices that make the difference.

Re: F... gas prices

Sense we are going to move the wife gave me the nod to buy another boat to run around in which will burn less gas. She fell hook line and sinker for that one.

Europe imposes massive fuel taxes, some countries actually have several. Yes its extremely high, but their whole infrastructure and transportation network is a complete 180 from ours.

I do blame the government including the President. The oil lobby has such a grasp on our political system is a disgrace. Our enability to come up with a comprehensive energy strategy is flat out disgusting is a directly related to Big Oil and Big Government...on both sides of the aisle.
