Hey Lot, I happen to have a couple dozen of them rubber thingys just lying around. I'll let you have one for $19.99, we have operators standing by; but wait, that's not all, if you call now and tell them I sent you, we'll include a SECOND rubber thingy absolutely FREE - that's a $30.00 value! Still not convinced, if you are one of the first 10 callers, we'll even include one of those filthy rubber squeege thingys you can find in gas stations to smear your windshields.

Re: How are gas prices where you live?

Hmm, dosn't suprise me. Crime of all type has been shooting up like crazy in this city apparently, still think that there should be a law mandating those rubber things though (if there isn't one already), you know, a safty issue.

Good question. Didn't we just have something like thousands of flight cancellations too because of the blizzards and bad winter weather? That should have saved THOUSANDS of gallons of fuel.

I like when they say that civil unrest or the possibility of war in Iran or wherever makes the price of oil go up. What a bunch of crap. I thought the initial spike in oil prices was because of Katrina and the unavailability of refineries in the south. That was 2 years ago now.

Whenever the oil companies sneeze or have a hangnail they have to raise the price of oil. They find any excuse.

Re: How are gas prices where you live?

Believe it or not, I heard last week that fog, yes fog, was a dtermining factor in the recent surge in gas prices. Apparently there was heavy fog somewhere (can't remember where) and the tankers were lined up for days and couldn't get into the refineries to offload their shipments of oil. Now, there are some refineries down for mantainence but the demand is still there so the price of gas just HAS TO GO UP. Getting close to $2.60 a gallon here in Philly. Oil companies and insurance companies - I hate them both. Where's the middle finger icon!

Re: How are gas prices where you live?

I think we should all do a nationwide "Gas out" and not buy any gas, like on a Saturday. Just stay home with the family, no boating, travelling, spending money on Middle Eastern or Hugo gas. I don't buy from Citgo anymore. I don't even buy a newspaper there.

I heard over the road truck drivers were going to park their big rigs on the highway and stop interstate commerce for a day as a protest. As it turned out, everyone chickened out. Bunch of wuss a.sses

I also heard last night on the radio that gas prices are going back up to $3.00/gal this summer.

Re: How are gas prices where you live?

As for truckers, I think something similar happened in the UK years ago. They got really pissed about something (I think it was the taxes that are put on the gas), so many of them went to gas stations along the roads and blocked the entrances.

Funny thing about gas outs. I remember my High School Economics teacher saying that it wouldn't work in this country. Basically, what it would do is shut down gas stations and give the gas companies a reason to charge higher prices for gas, which would mean higher prices for the products we buy (like food, clothing, etc.)

Re: How are gas prices where you live?

The scary thing with these higher prices is that it's not even close to summer yet and that's when gas prices go way up because it's the traditional "driving season".

Re: How are gas prices where you live?

I'm thinking about selling my boat. I didn't take it out last summer cause I couldn't afford the gas, and if they are talking $3 again, I still won't be able to afford it. This sucks, because it is an awesome boat.
