listen for those of you that think it's the arabs or obama blah blah blah

do you really wana know who drove up the prices?

good old crooked americans

it's called the futures market, the scumbags manipulate the prices to make their bets pay off, much like insider trading................read up kids







The futures market allows traders to bet on whether the price of gasoline, or any commodity, will rise or fall on a date sometime in the future. Traders that hold long positions are predicting that the gas price will be higher on a specific date in the future; traders holding short positions are predicting the price will be lower on that date.

Why do you hate America? ~ republicans


I can't wait until Romney takes office and allows every commodity price to skyrocket. You think the Bush days were bad? Wait until the corporate raider takes the helm.

sit and think on a hike or a tv show about how great this planet is outside of the human race

and then think about what we are doing to it

if nature or the earth could act in a way humans do, we would have been erased from her surface long ago by her............for being inconsiderate aholes



we are merely passengers........................and we complain about gas, we should all be lucky we are allowed to be here

It's $8.93/gallon for 92 octane at the Shell down the street from my parents house in Denmark.

Relatively small difference between that and the baller 95 octane at $8.96/gallon.

Diesel is $8.07/gallon

Thank god for Diesel SMART car.

i would take your gas prices any day.

the UK currently gets £1.45 (GBP) per litre of gas, and £1.49 (GBP) per litre of diesel

some places are more, i have done the conversions numerous times so cant be bothered to do them again really...

then ontop you pay for "road tax" which for my Audi is £450 a year the range rover is £750 a year

then insurance and the UK slam tax on that too ... my 18 year old sister went to insure a 1.2 vehicle with 70 bhp extremely low insurance bracket and was quoted £3000 per year and that was the cheapest...

so you think you got it bad? i will remember to send you a box of kleenex on rush mail

Filled up with Shell 93 octane yesterday @ $3.78 / gallon.


Considering getting a large SUV like a Sequoia or Armada, but $5+ gas does not excite me.

In the longer term it will keep increasing because the price of oil is increasing. It has nothing to do with Obama.
