For California the main body of the sign should be a Proposition 65 warning.

We could also end world hunger by not sending food to people who are hungry.

/it will only be a rough few months as billions starve
//but then there will be enough land for your overpriced organic crap.
///Who knew all the worlds problems could be solved by just denying shiat to people


Now I'm learning that oil is an absolute necessity to survival. An educational day today. Do these apples taste like oranges?

Free Radical: A barrel of oil is $89.03.
So how come gas is nearly 6 bucks a gallon in CA?

Let's speculate on the answer...


well. that would be 2.11 if you were buying crude.

But you have to refine the crude first. Which takes you from 42 gallons crude in, to 19 gallons of gasoline out, comes to $4.68 a gallon. Factor in refining and transportation costs and it makes sense.

If you forget that they still use and sell the other 23 gallons as other products, it almost seems reasonable.

We could fix internet congestion by making people pay a dollar a megabyte too.

I mean, it'd be hard for a while, but only in the short term.

I wasn't aware that bandwidth was a finite resource and once it was used it could never be replenished, which would cripple our world because we didn't have a backup plan in place.

Hi! Since you spoiled whiners don't want it, where can I get that cheap $6/gallon gas?

/uk resident

but more seriously...

there are 12 cars at "whatmpg co uk" which get over 60 mpg, combined. some are diesels. some are not. very very few, if any, of them, are available for sale in the USA.

at $10 per gallon, a reasonable 10,000 miles of yearly driving at 25 mpg costs a less than whopping $4000 - or $333 per month. At $5 per gallon that's all of $167 per month. The reality is that petrol is cheap cheap cheap even if it is still "more expensive than it used to be" which is really, when you get down to it, what the whining is all about.

They went up 20 cents overnight. I'm sure this isn't just a gas industry money grab.
