I have a sure-fire way to bring gasoline back down to $1.50...

  1. bettles


    Well at around $3 a gallon, thats 75 cents or so a quart. Some people pay more than this for bottled water.

    In UK, petrol is over a pound per liter which (at current exchange rates) is $8 a gallon.

    While no one is glad to pay more and more for gasoline, gasoline is still a small amount of the cost of operating a car for many. Add up the cost of car payments (newer car) or repairs (older car) plus insurance for a year. Compare this to the amount spent on gasoline for a year. Except for someone who is a traveling salesman or someone who routinely drives cross-country the cost of gasoline in the US, even at the current prices, is relatively small compared to other costs associated with a vehicle.

    hey, when is the election?

    how much longer do we have to tolerate these conditions that are being supported, encouraged and fostered by these thieves in high offices?
