Uh, I only have one question. If all this stuff is responsible for the increased prices, and I should just go and be jolly about it, saying "OH BOY, IT'S LIKE PRICE ADJUSTED 1974!," why are the oil companies posting exorbitant RECORD profits? Hmmm. . .gee, it must be all those factors out of their control. Should have bought Exxon stock. It's amazing how these terrible world conditions always seem to favor Big Oil. And W. And Friends.

In the UK and EU, gas is the equivalent of seven dollars a US gallon.

Before doing this, it would be a good idea to come up with something specific to ask Congress to do.



Although trying to get demand reduced might be a good start, and one action you can take there that I'm sure everyone here can agree on: Get more people to ride motorcycles instead of taking their cars.

Default I am certain this is not appreciated, but

I am in complete agreement with schiz. Basic economics. No way is the government ever going to fix this problem. We're still paying less for gas than we should be, and certainly a lot less than we will be once we sneak past the peak oil production moment, thus ending a bubble time in human history. Get used to it, friends. And remember the gov't can only make it more expensive, not less.

Lets start a gas war between Exxon-Mobil and the other oil companies. Boycott Exxon-Mobil until prices come down. Exxon-Mobil is the largest and most profitable oil company, if it can't sell fuel the price will come down and the other companies will follow suit. It is action we can all take.

What would you like the oil companies to do? Go out of business maybe? Everything would be great then, eh? Regulate profits maybe? Price freezing maybe? Those solutions sure worked well in the past. How about buying less/none and then there isn't any crying about how much they make. We are addicted and they are the pushers. Them's the facts.

Don't waste you time, dude. EVERYTHING in the world is Bush's fault. Inflation, crime, war, belly button lint, fires, earthquakes, Courtney Love, Gigli........ everything! None of these problems existed until Bush became President? Don't you remember how perfect the world was - a place of peace and harmony with the GPTB and sportbikers arm-in-arm singing 'kumbaya' together?

They also love China's "one child" policy. Ironically these loons are all radical feminists as well, so how do they resolve the fact that incredible numbers of female babies are killed at birth in China as a result of this policy? The thought processes of such people are mind-boggling.

Seattle. Ain't that where they invented the $4.00 cup of coffee? Yeah they sure should bytch about gas prices. Hell, all those smart Blue Staters didn't want war for oil anyway, so they should have stopped shipping oil there two years ago in my opinion. All this just goes to show how spoiled Americans really are. They drive their 10 mpg SUV's to the Starbucks that they could have walked to, and grab their $4.00 coffee that they could have bought for .99 anywhere else, and then complain about high gas prices to their Blue State buddy, all while driving around talking on the cell phone. Fuc&ing Amazing.
