    You know the rest of the world makes fun of Americans for complaining about gas prices? Having lived in England for 3 years I've heard a great deal of foreign opinions of the United States, some good some bad. Aside from that though, they pay about $5.50 per galon in the UK.

    I don't care, I want cheap gas damnit. Any country that has the power to destroy the world deserves cheap gas as a sign of respect. Once Saudi Arabia get nukes they can charge as much as they want for gas but untill then gas should be around $1.25per gallon

    I will be starting the biking to work in about 2 weeks. Then I can save some cash. All I care about is the cost of natural gas, my heating bills have tripled even with the thermostat set to 58. Brrrrrrr

    simple solutions

    Cost of Heating: buy a corn furnace, i'm not kidding, it'll pay for itself in 1 or maybe 2 years.

    On Gasonline Prices: Get a car that gets 80mpg. They exist, they're half the price of an SUV.

    I think it is wonderful that gas prices are going up. The government should add another $1 per gallon tax to be used only for alternative energy source (and propulsion) research. Cheap gas allows irresponsible americans to buy absolutely unnecessary gas-guzzling vehicles and keeps us enslaved to the Exxons. Most americans will ignore the environmental and horribly wasteful excess of their gasoline habit without a thought. Force efficienct cars (gas/electric hybrids at least) down their throats and with that will come less polution and lest economic waste. Pouring $$$ in your gas tank, no matter how rich you are, does nothing for the american economy beyond making Exxon richer.

    Freaking short-sighted idiots in this country! no offense to anyone here ;)

    Heh, you think big Oil is going to allow the government to encourage alternative energy research to progress beyond the facade that exists now?

    Not going to happen without their greedy little fingers on the steering wheel.



    hmm, sounds like I've become too enmeshed in conspiracy theory. :D

    Dumb ass Bush. You said it. Gore was a moron too, but at least he seemed to give a damn about the environment.

    And to tell the truth I wouldn't care if Big Oil still had their hands on the wheel. If Exxon wants to start making solar collectors or whatever, then I'm all for it. I just wish that Big Oil would do something responsible with their money, but I guess that's never going to happen. We'll just keep drilling holes in the earth and polluting the air until the human race dies out. But hey, at least will be rich, and think of all the jobs we will have created.

    In matters of the economy Greenspan is god. Just remember that. I hate that EVERYONE doesn't understand that. "Oh well, the economy's down turn started with the Clinton administration so it's his fault!" -the Bush administration. What a bunch of retards! :retard:

    economy is periodic?

    Isn't the economy a periodic thing? It has been predicted that it will go down last year no?

    Anyway, how did bush get in that house if you all hate him?

    Re: economy is periodic?

    You show proof of Onisama's point:

    Only a fool thinks that the president runs the country.

    ..heehee, I'm thinking of Mr. T right now.

    Ok, Bush may not run the country, but his little bitches in the house and senate do, and the majority of them will do what ever he says. Also why on Earth would any republician not side with big oil?!

    Bush is in the whitehouse cause most people are dumb as a brick of wood and all they care about is how much they pay in taxes and many of us here dislike him beacuse a larger portion of mac users are not stupid as compared to the general population as in the think different slogan which actualy works just as well as think(for once you dumb ass pc user)
