and you know it's because of Bush and Darth Cheney lining their pockets with green for when they're out of office.

Yeah, too bad they can not take all of that money with them when they die.

I'm afraid that's very much true. Gas prices will only continue to rise as the demand for oil continues to grow across the world. A few years from now, we'll be thinking about $4 USD as being the good old days, unfortunately.

I seriously believe that we're approaching the end of the Oil Age. There's probably only enough oil left to sustain world demand for another century, but as the oil supplies begin to dwindle, the price per barrel will shoot exponentially.

Now will be a good time to start looking at old-fashioned bicycles, IMO...

Or electric vehicles. Or motorcycles that run on biodiesel, or scooters that run on compressed air, or...

If you were in UK you'd be paying the equivalent of over $8 per gallon.

I hope that puts it in perspective for you...

DS9,

Good point. Must be H*ll on you brits, considering that you can drive from one end of your country to the other in a day. With us, it could take three or four days to get from east to west coast. The gas price spike is not just an inconnvience, it's a curtailing of our freedom.

Yeah, prices over there are pretty insane. Which just seems to make shows like your "Top Gear" seem all the more out of touch. These guys should be trying to find the most gas effiient vehicles, not the latest "penis cars" to suck up gas with, that no one but the uber rich could possibly afford.

-Joe

I did it in way less than a day Fan. It's great country, but it's not that big.
