"Mileage and motorcycles don't mix."



That's a very odd sentence. Motorcycles and mileage go hand-in-hand, as this thread shows.



"My standard line is if I get more than 35 MPG, I ain't havin' enough fun."



Don't go high-rpm in the straights. It's a waste. Save it for pulling out of the corners. That's why you've got fifth and sixth gear.

LOL so right.. I want to make an important fact and I step on my.... in the process. Buz was telling that it ain't so bad adjusted for inflation. However, the data indicates something else..Gas prices did fall after 1981 but.. the problem is the world producers have hit peak production a couple of years ago...i.e. it's a real supply thing now. Not an embargo political thing. Also India and China want more of the oil..and the have favorable trade and budget deficits unlike us.

Your theory? Jesus, this is pretty much conventional wisdom.



Relax, folks. Even at $4.00 a gallon, gas is pretty cheap and a bargain. There are a lot more important things to carp about money-wise.

Really gas at 4.00 is a bargin... Adjust it for inflation buddy.. a 25% increase in the price is going to be OK schiki.?.. Go look at the link... That probably translates into a 20% hike in adjusted terms.. which will have not might have a crippling effect on the economy.

Ok...I am not arguing here, but am only trying to get your opinion, so do not start preaching, ranting and foaming at the mouth...Venezuela is reporting vast oil reserves. Some reports state it is enough to produce 200 years worth of oil.



"Palast reports a US Energy Department expert believes Venezuela holds 90% of the worldÂ’s super-heavy tar oil reserves - an estimated total of 1,360,000,000,000 (1.36 trillion) barrels. Let me repeat that - 1.36 trillion barrels. That alone is more oil than Hubbert believed 50 years ago lay under the entire planet."



Venezuela's president, Hugo Chávez, has also stated that he would be will to set a fix price at 50 per barrel.



Again, no freakish ranting or political turrets syndrome
