    Re: How much are you paying for gas?

    Yesterday morning coming to work, $2.89....went to lunch and it was $2.99 and then on my way home $3.19, all the same station and this is the "cheapest" station we have. Luckily I live only 20 minutes from my job, I feel for the heavier commuters. What's up with this?....Earning a paycheck, to pay for gas to get to a job that you don't really want to be at in the first place. What's wrong with this picture??? I say we all just quit our jobs....we'll teach those gas/oil guys!!! lol

    In the UK we pay $8 a gallon ............ you guys have a ways to go yet ... by RamDez
    WOW! That is very scary! And I'm sure you feel very little compassion for folks like us who are complaining about paying $3 to $4 per gallon!

    How do people get around there? Bikes? Motorcycles? Helium inflated bagpipes? Do you have a great public transportation system that eliminates the need to own a car?

    Could you please expound on this. Is it priced by the liter or gallon? As well as the other questions above like taxes.

It also says the US consumed 20.7 million barrels a day in 2004, and imported slightly over 12 million barrels a day. We consume nearly two and a half times what we produce, and some of what we produce is exported. So it would make sense that a large share of what we consume is imported.

    According to the U.S. Bureau of the Census, the estimated current population of the United States is slightly over nearly 295 million. The population of China is around 1.3 billion. The population of Japan is around 127 million. Yet we consume more than triple the oil that China does, and nearly four times as much as Japan.

    This only highlights how desperate we should be to come up with alternative renewable fuel sources.
    Now that stat. is most likely accurate it makes since,but we're still being gouged by OPEC.We have enough oil in this country to handle the need.Its just economics 101 supply and demand.The EPA wont let us get after our huge oil finds because it might I repeat might upset some fish or some kind of salamander.WE can be #1 in oil production,but alas.The oil Co. enemies do have alot of power to shut this down.We are going to be able to pump from amwar on a temp. basis,and thats only because of the hurricane.The environuts need gas too.

    Re: How much are you paying for gas?

    Here is a big part of the problem.

    Richard Carson/Reuters The Conoco Phillips refinery is flooded after being hit by Hurricane Katrina near New Orleans, on Aug. 31. The natural disaster has forced 12 U.S. refineries to cut runs, in addition to the eight plants it completely shut down, officials at the American Petroleum Institute said Thursday. All the oil we bring in isnt going to make enough gas.

    Sad part of it all, in TEXAS (go figure...) it is still less than what we were paying before Katrina...guess the GOB (Good Ole Boy) oil club is working fine.

    Re: How much are you paying for gas?

    Sam, you do realize that is still .40 cents higher than what we were paying just last week? Yes, gas is cheaper here in Texas. Most of the oil that comes into the US gets refined here into the gas you get.

    I don't think there are any GOB's in the oil club...

    I did notice a drop from Friday to Saturday.

    Yeah, I know it went up down there too. I used to live in San Antonio, and enjoyed the gas prices....until I moved back here. Springfield is still cheaper than most places, but SA was even better.
    The GOB's I was referring to are the politicians who have a large stake in oil companies. When I lived down there in the early 80's, a lot of the state politicians were former oil company executives or related to someone who was...and they understood that raising the gas prices too much was a death knell for thier careers.

    Here in MO, the oil GOB's aren't as prevalent; instead, we have insurance companies with major poitical ties. (My car insurance in a city of about 150,000, with low accident and theft rates, liability only, is higher than it would be in San Antonio...by over $200 a year.)

    I guess every state has some political-corporate ties that run the state. I bet Florida's politicians have ties with the companies that make Geritol and Depends...
