It's always freakin' one step forward, two steps back with this crap. In a month or two prices will go back down to $2.25 or so and we'll be so happy (even though they were under $2.00 a couple months ago). I hate this, I even drive a little Mazda3 and I'm thinking of trading it in for a hybrid.

It was a very mild winter in the northeast, one would think that would have helped but NOOOOO, gas prices are climbing through the roof again.

My car is pretty good on gas and I have a pretty short work commute, I only have to fuel up every 7-10 days, but when it's starting to cost $25+ to fill the tank, that hurts.

F Bush too.

Seriously.

You'd THINK we would have developed an alternate fuel source by now, but NOOO. Thank the oil companies for lobbying against THAT.

i have a ford taurus that gets roughly 18-20 miles/gallon mixed driving. I commute 350 miles round trip per week, combine that with all the other driving, and we're talking 500 miles a week is fairly average.

As I am a big guy, I really don't want a commuter car because they are too small, yet I can't afford one of the newer hybrids. So call me screwed...

It's not really the oil companies. It is the car companies. Oil companies know they'll be able sell whatever fuel we need for our cars with minimal investment. Car companies on the other hand will need to spend billions in R&D to make full lines of viable alt fuel vehicles.

Along the same line we all need to give ourselves a big fat
F...US
for not demanding more alt fuel vehicles. If there was demand from us then the car companies would do it. What a total CF this whole situation has become.

F SUV drivers too, especially hummers

Why do people feel the need to drive tanks?

Uh oh, this thread is going political.

Hybrids are not the answer. They typically cost on average $4000 more than the comparable non-hybrid model. The savings on gas doesn't offset the increase in price.

Blaming the oil companies is like shooting the messenger. The price of oil as a commodity has gone up because of stronger demand from China and India's economies, which are growing like wildfire. Middle east tensions between the Iraq war and the tension with Iran are also causing oil prices to rise. There's no conspiracy occurring between the big oil firms to price gauge the consumers, it's quite simply a matter of supply and demand when it comes to oil.

Alternative energy sources are the real answer. You have to reduce America's demand for oil in order to insulate the American consumers from oil prices.

I second that. That's ONE of the reasons gas prices stay as high as they are. More need = higher prices. Simple formula.

Drive more fuel efficient cars, less gas is used, prices go down. That would be a start anyway. But I agree (to a point) to also send out an F...Us for ALWAYS wanting the beast SUV to drive one person around in.

And Matty, those are on my list right below girls who drive Jettas. That is girls at college who's daddies bought them enormous monsters of cars that they can hang their leis and and talk on cell phones causing accidents.

Hollaback girl. Woot woot.
