    Default what is your take on the insane price of gas

    im paying 1.44/lt. where im at that works out to be over $5 a gallon US
    montreal, is over the $1.50 mark that is probbaly around $6/gal.
    i know it is a supply and demand thing but goddamit canada has
    alot of oil like iraq, iran, Saudi Arabia, and vensulia the only problem
    is they are paying pennies for their gas and we are not. crude oil went up
    $10/barel last week and gas jumped 7cents here but the weeks befor that it went down $10/barel and where was the big decrease in the price?
    not to be seen. fucking outragious!

    Bush is an oil man and he's pushing for the gas to go up so he can scrounge that last little bit of $$$ before he gets out of office. Although a lot of people don't think so, I think the price of gas will start to go down a bit once he gets his sorry ass out of office. These next 6 months will be the longest this country's had to endure in a long time.

    i got rid of my SUV and just got a 2008 Mazda3, and couldn't be happier with the difference in gas mileage.. i've been getting 27ish and that is amazing for what i am used to..

    gas prices are absolutely outrageous.. It is completely RUINING the economy here..

    the bank near my house got held up today.. and i would NEVER expect that to happen in my town.. not to say that the economy is the reason but there is definitely a theory behind that, to say the least.. desperate times..

    Retail businesses need to form some sort of coalition to stop oil companies from marking up gas prices.. i mean, gasoline has about zero elasticity, as that VAST, VAST majority of people depend on their cars to get around every day.. so we're just getting ass-raped by this markup.. Something needs to happen, SOON.

    i forgot to mension that the high price is probbaly also connected to paying for the war in iraq IMO

    Un-Leaded @ $1.58 a ltr

    Diesel @ $1.80 ltr

    That is in Queensland - other states are paying about 10 to 20 cents a ltr more

    The price of gasoline is increasing every week and I don't know when it will stop.

    I paid $1.67 on Friday for un-leaded down in Melbourne.. It is such a scam!!

    The technology was being developed to have cars that don't need half the petrol or oil to run as they do now... But the whole fucking world is run by oil industry giants... No way would governments and industry giants allow a switch from the cars we have now, to enviro friendly cars that barely use any petrol/gas... The environment is being ruined, we are paying a ridiculous amount to run our cars... The only reason we aren't driving electric cars or alternative power cars, is because billions and billions of dollars in oil would be lost......
    The environment would be a million times better off, the consumer would be a million times better off... But of course, in business, what is more important that $$$ ?

    Nothing..

    I've been riding my motorcycle alot. Shame on us for not learning something from the gas crisis during the 70's. Whats even more disturbing for me is my heating oil bill. I just got notified the budget payment went from $137 per month to $378.

    It's those greedy motherfuckers in office and overseas. Until we get ourselves a REAL president in office, it'll stay like this. The U.S. is finished if we get another president like George Bush. (We may already be finished anyway, but I KNOW for a FACT we're done for if they're as bad as Bush. We might as well all take a pistol and shoot ourselves in the head, that way our downfall will be a quick and painless one).

    Here in Britain, Petrol tanker drivers have gone on strike, saying they want more money for the danger of driving about with thousands of gallons of highly explosive liquid attached to their backs.

    A Shell spokesman said; "There are thousands of muslims out there who would kill for a job like that!"
