Mod, can I say that?


Hey, I thought my sarcasm was obvious?

It was, it was. I just can't resist flaming EPA at every chance!

I call them the extreme pollution agency. Why? Well, the thousands of pages of regulations they generate consumes thousands of trees, consume a huge amount of and resources printing, distribution, and enforcing regulations. They also tend to generate more waste than a barn yard with their false rhetoric.

As for the rise in fuel prices, the dollar is slowly losing value internationally. The Chinese as well as others are buying copper, silver, and other commodities rather than treasuries. The market speculators are betting energy prices will rise thus bidding the current market prices up.

We are just starting to see the long-term market economic results of quantitative easing as well as other monetary policy.

It seems ANY effort the environmentalists oppose can be held up for years, even killed, via the use of an EIS, environmental impact statement. I suggest we get our representatives to turn the tables on them by requiring, before any regulation or lawsuit is filed, that they file an EIS of their own - Economic Impact Statement. I'm serious. The public should be made aware of the huge costs and enormous damage they wreak on society.

This is sorta the inverse of so many years where we had a glut in corn and ethanol. As for 3rd world folks we let wheat rot in the fields and other crops as opposed to sending it elsewhere.

You are right though this year and the next several years I think will be tough on gas prices and the dought years will continue.

I went 60 miles today and used 2/10's of a gallon of gas at just under 4 bucks a gallon, michigan is one of the highest prices.

Gas prices went up 10ยข a gallon at many stations overnight. Now the high is $3.84 a gallon. Diesel is at a high of $4.05 a gallon. Gasoline will probably pass thru $4.00 a gallon real soon now...

Colorado lagged behind as prices dropped. But now, with prices finally down to around 3.38 for regular, we haven't seen the increases some other areas already have experienced.

But that's not tru of diesel. It has gone from upper 3.40s to 3.80 at most stations, although I caught a laggard last night and filled my nearly empty tank for 3.539.

Stand by for the spike in gas prices again!! There was a fire at California's largest refinery that caused it to shut down. Prices have already jumped over $.10/gal and they say it will increase possibly by $.40/gal in the next week.

Sure glad I bought that Prius last week!!!

You should have bought a Volt. As part owner of the company, I want to see them succeed. That won't be happening those as they are being rejected in mass. When the subsidies are gone, so will the resale values. Electricity prices for recharging are said to be skyrocketing. Our prices are back up to $3.60 and my truck is running of fumes.

I see that the car battery firms are starting to fail. each electric car adds the equivalent of 1/3 of a house to the grid.
