I feel I need to reply to the ongoing discussion.Usually dont get in on any of the other topics. Im one that checks in on the new posts waiting for news on graw 2 and other stuff. On the gas prices. Yes they are high 3.18 a gal here I need gas to deliver my produce 4 times a week thats how I make my living. Sure the cost is up in fuel prices but before you all bash the oil companies do some research. Profit that they make is 10 cents on the gallon. Know what the govt is getting without one penny investment? 60 cent per gal. for those of you in UK its probly 2 bucks . I have a lot of contacts there they tell me what the govt is doing.
Some more comparisons beer is like 5 bucks a 6 pack thats for the cheap stuff Im sure most of you pay it without bitching about it too much. Cigs are high but when you need them pay it. Somebody mentioned tomatoes are 2.80 a lb Love it because thats what I grow and its about time they are higher. We pay for internet access doesnt matter the price movie tiks are high we pay. So bottom line the price is determined by supply and demand . If our brite elected officials would allow more refineries to be built there would be more gas hence cheaper gas. So please quit blaming forces that are not to blame for the prices blame the money hungry politicians who love to get in our pockets for more more more.
O one more thing I just heard here in US since the green people have been buying the priuses to save some gas, gas tax revenues are down now they are talking about raising the taxes some more. I thot it would be good to use less gas. If we do that the govt still isnt satisfied always need more taxes.
ps if I hear one more time about global warming Im blowing a gasket for all you who think that please get rid of your pcs and cell phones ,dont be like that hypocrite algoreleone
who sits at three pc monitors ,checking the weather, and than preaching to me about warming.
Have a safe day
