As long as I can get 200 miles from a tank, the price don't bother me much on way or the other.



If gas rose above $3/gallon and stayed there for a year or three, I think that'd be a great thing in the long run, but sux in the short run. Sux reason is clear. Great thing not so clear, so here I go: when oil breaks say $70/bbl or so, incentive is there to bring higher lift cost sources to market. Supply & demand will balance out jes fine, thankyavrmuch as Elvis leaves the building...

P.S. No union, no heathcare, no pension. etc. Also the government can be the worst violater of OSHA rules... Just middle/working class kids looking for way to get through college.

They find them regularly; nobody is going to lower prices.

So you hate Bush because you aren't a real firefighter? Makes sense to me. I just don't want any of our readers here to confuse you with a professional firefighter. You were a part-time wannabe. Nothing wrong with that. Just tell it like it is. I did it for a living for 17 years, not 6 'seasons' on the weekends. That would make me the professional, and you the never was. Just keepin it real for you 'facts and data' types.

Really?? It was just barely above 20$ a little over a year ago.



World demand is dropping, oil supplies are up.

It might be the same or worse at those speeds. Could be the same reason that a Buell XB-12 and a CBR-600 make comparable power but the Buell gets MUCH better mileage with twice the displacement.

Not true - at least for me anyway. My HD came in around 20 cents a mile versus my Ford, which was about 33 cents per mile. Gas mileage, insurance and (yes) reliability favored the bike.
