Gasoline and Diesel fuel are the number one US *export* right now.


This fact was not well publicized, but is true as of a few months ago. And has EVERYTHING to do with the high price of gas and higher prices to come.

I think they call it supply and demand. The price of fuel for evermore will be determined by world usage and the price each country is willing to pay for it. The oil giants will set on oil until the price is right. The investors will reap big dividends and the USA consumer will pay what the market is bearing. This may be the catalyst that will allow Yankee ingenuity to develop a real alternative that is cost effective and makes sense.

B.O.Plenty has it right. The more mileage a car gets, the more the fuel for that car is going to cost. That is called a business model.


The Minnesota Legislature has floated the idea of charging a vehicle owner for the miles driven as the gas tax is producing less income for the roads.

I believe the Oregon legislators floated an idea to force everyone to install gps mileage trackers in their vehicles and then tax them based on miles driven. If anyone ever came up with a functional electric vehicle it would still be using the same roads but not paying fuel taxes.

And if the blasted politicians would just spend the road tax money on roads and not on bike and pedestrian tracks/lanes and for buses and rail, then they'd have all the money they need for road maintenance.

I do not understand all this so will someone explain please. they say it is supply and demand.Well the supply is high and the demand is low but the prices are high.when the prices went up before they said it was because not enough supply.Then they said it went up because oil prices did oil prices went down gas still went up. I just don't understand all this high tech stuff.Regardless of what they say it changes to whatever will raise prices. I have noticed no politicians are saying anything about how to get prices down especially building a pipeline from Canada to at least buy from someone that's not a enemy. I would hate to see the faith of someone that wanted to tap the oil in our country and not support our enemies.My rant has stopped sorry just aggravated.

Refined petroleum, gas and diesel are now the number 1 export of the US, so demand is NOT down. We are in a global economy and that includes all petroleum products. You will be paying whatever the global economy sets as a fair market price in the very near future, so get used to high prices now.

Is one really saving money with an EV. High cost of purchase. Cost of replacing the batteries. In case of a serious accident one is in close proximity to a lot of electrical energy.
