He stops drilling here,while he helps foreign countries tap our oil,then buys the oil from them accelerating their climb to communism,and lets gas go up till you're desperate enough to buy one of his overpriced crap cars.

Not bad huh?

That's 'cause we gotta ship it all the way up there from our refineries. Trucks get stuck in the snow, fall off your dirt roads, etc. Gonna drive up the price, bro.

Just filled up the "tile van" 3.99/gallon.

Washington state has an additional 0.10 / gallon state tax, which does not seem to be enough to solve our bugetary woes.

$100.00 and still not a full tank.

I remember when CX and I were in HS together at different schools, although we were still BFF's. $ 2.00 and you were good for the weekend.

I know "real" , "todays", "present value" and all that, but I was making $ 2.00 and hour as a box boy.

Wish an hours worth of work would give me a weekends worth of gas in todays market!!!!!

Better yet, you were good for the week.

On average regular gas ranges from $4.05 to $4.17 p/g here. Most work has been out of town lately. An average trip to drive to work cost $40.

If there was ever a doubt about the liberal bias of the media one just needs to look at the treatment of this subject. Under the "R" president it was a daily drumbeat. Under the "D" it hardly gets a footnote.

One could even argue that the problem is worse today than last time, when oil hit $140. We're barely at $110 and already passing $4 /gal in many areas.

nope, no bias at all.

A job a couple weeks ago is the first time I had to charge a "fuel surcharge"

job was 67 miles one way - I spent $578 on fuel alone

These prices are definitely cutting into my profit margins.

Tim, 67 miles one way? I do that everyday with the added pleasure of driving scenic I-270 so I feel your pain. Currently paying $3.75 thanks to the Central Banking Cartel.
