If only we produced enough oil domestically to not need imports, then prices would drop back to $.50 a gallon!

If only we had elected Michelle Bachmann, we'd have $2 gas right now... Shame on you, America.

My wife and I don't use gasoline, we drive all electric cars, because, frankly, we're better than you people.

I also don't own a TeeVee and I use a non-ironic rotary phone.

Pretty much King Sh*T of F*ck Island over here.

/good morning.

But there is this nice lady on TV who keeps telling me that fracking will provide the US with all the oil and natural gas we want for 100 years at good prices and with no environmental damage.

SOMEDAY we will have people in Washington that will come up with a energy policy that makes sense, and the roller coaster gas prices and $4 a gallon every summer will stop.

you know, I really thought that you would get more mileage out of that one.  Over in yesterday's blood diamond thread, I about pissed myself laughing.  Today...not so much.

What's with the scary tag?  Are we really shatting our pants because a fill-up might go from costing $50 to $53?

MythDragon: Summer: More people are driving, so we need to increase prices because of demand

Winter: Less people are driving, so we need to increase prices to make up for loss.


Except that's not what happens since, you know, gas prices actually fall back off after summer 'driving season'... but whatever.

If you want something that really DOES remain constant, American consumer stupidity should satisfy you though. We're back to Americans biatching about gas prices while simultaneously fueling demand for SUVs and pickups.

I'm sure all those sales are to builders and contractors though and I totally won't be seeing more idiots on their way to their office jobs barreling down the highway in immaculate F-150s with nobody in any seat but the driver's....

We pay $7.70 per US gallon in the UK for petrol, of which the vast majority is tax, and only 15% of that tax goes on maintaining the road network - fair it isn't.

Therefore I too couldn't give a flying wank with a ferret's paw about the price of "gasoline" in the US.  Unless you can start a successful revolution or build your own refinery in your own private country, you'll just have to bend over and take it up the Hershey highway like the rest of us - except you're getting it with a hot dog and we're getting it with a cucumber.  Stop snivelling already, start walking to the store and MTFU.

vernonFL: In my state (Maryland) they are raising the gasoline taxes 4 cents per year for the next 3 years.

Meh. Drive less and buy more fuel efficient cars. Ride a bike or walk, fatty.


There should be a tax on pedestrians, the lazy moochers. Why should they get away with it?

So, let's say somebody manages to arrange the impossible and gets everybody to not buy gas personal use for three days or so.

How would that affect things?

Lsherm: MaudlinMutantMollusk: The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: MaudlinMutantMollusk: If only we produced enough oil domestically to not need imports, then prices would drop back to $.50 a gallon!

The great part about that argument is that the US is one of the largest exporters of gasoline.

Thank you

Crude oil, or gasoline?  I thought what we exported wasn't fit for US consumption either way.


So we've gone from "Drill, baby, drill" to "Our oil isn't good enough for us"?

It's already happened here.  Twice now, the moment gas drops below the $3.20 mark, there's a sudden jump back up.  Because something something refineries.
