Well just filled up the ol' Escalade today when it was on empty. $74.68, just barely cracked $3 a gallon too! At least it ain't Europe, I'm not complaining still though. Done with all the whining on the news. Fact is still plenty of oil around. No shortages, but people need to realize some of that cheaper oil is a thing of the past as now the Canadian Sands and Colorado shale are much more attractive. Colorado with its shale oil alone is more oil than the entire middle-east, problem is getting it. Not the cheapest more effective way to get your crude. With those hybrid fuels coming into the fuel and cars becoming more efficient prices should drop come fall barring any unforeseen problem with hurricanes, as more refineries come online, and rigs that can effectively run operations with $50+ barrel oil get built. Either way still won't complain, unless gas got above $4-5 a gallon.

Just filled up my car. Regular was at $2.76 today. Looks like that they [gas prices] are starting to go down now.

Lucky you, mine just went up to $3.14. Thank god I filled up 2 days ago at 3.02!

I'm sure Kardar heard of this thought, but what I just found out is CT has only a $.25 tax per gallon. A lot, but in my opinion here either force the SUV companies to make more gas friendly cars or tax the gas more to make the people do it, I won't complain, its good to get a discount and get gas cheaper, but I will take responsibility (unlike the rest of America) for my choice in a car and will gladly pay it, personally I think SUV's are needed at times in CT (With weeks where its 62 in January and then the next week there is 32 inches of snow down with a nice sheet or two of ice at the bottom making traction all the better), but elsewhere where there is no snow, they should be for the most part limited or highly discouraged. You can get a good 4x4 car thats not a big *** gas guzzler, so those people can still go 70MPH in the rain as they so wish, becuase of coarse its just water.

I heard last night on the George Noory radio show that the earth makes oil and we'll never run out. Supposedly they (I don't who "they" are) found something crazy like trillions of barrels of oil under Colorado. With that kind of oil and what we found in Anwar, we could tell the Arab and Middle East to stick it. How do you like us now!

Well it is not that the earth is running out of oil. We are far from that, but its the fact that the wells in the middle east are to an extent, drying up. We can definitly bring oil prices down, but we would have to drill a lot more on our own soil and that can ruin many enviorments. I am not saying our dependency on Middle eastern oil is a good thing, it's not, but right now there are to many winers who don't want us to drill at all in the United States. But the liklyhood of humans running out of oil is out of the question. We will probably die from Global Warming in a couple hundred of years but the oil will still be flowing then.

Though oil has dropped down below $70.00 and is continuing to get lower. 66.17 a barrel. Funny how when the government starts to investigates big oil companies like Exxon how the oil prices suddenly...drop down.

Don't get me started on global warming, I think that's a joke too. The whole solar system is warming up, we aren't doing it to our earth, studies show Mars and Pluto are warming too. The sun is getting wamer. The sun is going through a very active cycle of solar flares, I know, we see the northern lights alot up here. Yeah this guy was talking about how we will never run out of oil, that our earth actually produces oil from deep within the earth, not from "fossils".

Well actually those trillions of gallons of oil have always been in Colorado and Alberta, but for both they are in 2 tough stages of life. In Colorado its shale oil in rocks and boulders, problem is oil at $30 or less can't support large shale oil operations. Now with oil at $60 it should be easier. We've known about it for years, along with the Alberta sands. Enviromental penalties also play a part in making it easier now with Oil worth so much per barrel.

Yes, I've heard that too, but I think this is only in theory. Even though the earth is making oil out of dead organic material, this process if I remember takes Millions of years, so if we run out, it might be a very long time till we get more of it.

Can't agree with ya more there. I'm suprised to know that these environmentalists don't realize that we're still coming out of something called an Ice Age.

Well the media doesn't help either. This whole thing of the Ice caps melting won't be much of a problem in the coming years anyway. Like the media says "The Avian Flu is coming, we are all going to DIE"

I've noticed thats a huge problem with mostly the American and British (to a smaller extent) Media. The problem is that they want to get ratings, and they figured out one thing. The more people they put fear into, the higher their ratings will be. Before good ol' Al Gore bought out Newsworld international and turned it into Current TV, Newsworld used to show news from NHK (Japan), CCTV (China), Deutshe Welle (Germany), ITV (UK), and the CBC (Canada, they also owned NWI). When I had that channel, I saw that their news was just that, the news, they tried to get both sides of the story, and they reported the facts, and last off, none of them tried to launch their own little "investigations".

Sorry for pulling this up, but I think this might help contribute to the thread.
I was at Sams Club last week, and looks like the price of gas is starting to fall. I think a week before I filled up, it was at $2.729 per gallon, now It looks like it is at $2.639 per gallon now. Don't know why the prices went down, weather it is the elections right around the corner, or if something happened to make the gas prices to go down, but it just seems rather odd to me that they fell so quick, does anyone else feel that is a bit unusual?
