I paid $4.89 premium a month ago. It's $3.97 now. It spiked up and dropped so quick.

Ah yeah, back when you could drive anywhere and never think about the cost of gas. Now it's like "Huh, flying there and renting a car is cheaper"

This ^ is correct. There's a ton of gas out there. US has a lot more than the other countries. Just not going to tap into all over it yet.

Fox News was pretty clear on how Obama controls gas prices. 4 years ago, it was out of the presidents control, but somehow Obama was able in his first term to take over that part of the economy. I don't know if its just an amazing political feat, or if Fox changed their view, but I believe it.

I feel the same way bro, It was choice that is no longer available because its going to cost way to much for the time you are going to spend. I would of rather drove if it was cheaper to drive. Airports are getting hectic in the states though *someone chime in and correct me if im wrong. I know its really bad in some areas.

But I still dont look at the gas just fill and go , i still go on random drives but not as much and only if im in a good car.

Your 100 ron octane is our 91 ontario cdn , which is 93 in cali. Gas has different ratings in different countries. Hell its different in every other state.

Lol I was being fictitious

Figured someone on the right would say it

Do u know that we use less than 20% of oil from Middle East ?

We are practically energy independent. It's all about Canada USA and Mexico !

Cool?
