Pulled in the gas station the other day, and the station manager told me I better fill up because the price was going up .40 cents a gallon in 15 minutes.

Good thing the car gets 30 mpg.

Here in toronto/ontario/canada it's 5.30 a gallon lol (94 octane)
1.40 for a liter
3.78 liters in gallon
Total 5.30 and that's on regular days. Sometimes it'll go up to 5.70.

lol, where did you hear that? the first gulf war was indeed about oil, the second had nothing to do with it. anyhow, the oil companies are just a convenient whipping boy. they don't gouge, collude, or anything like that. the fact of the matter is, oil is a commodity traded globally, and all commodities are traded in US dollars. when Bush came to office (in order to help US industry compete abroad) he allowed the dollar to devalue. As the dollar drops in value, everything we export becomes cheaper. the flip side of that though is everything we import becomes more expensive. when Barry got elected, he ratcheted up this policy by having the FED print trillions, and trillions of dollars. we now have a currency that's worth barely half what it was 15 years ago. were essentially doing what we bitch about the Chinese doing. and because oil is sold globally, is sold in US dollars, and is a commodity; it doesn't matter how much of it we produce here. other than the revenue coming back home.

the oil companies have been investigated about 2 dozen times over the last 40 yrs, and never once has any instances of gouging, collusion etc been found. until someone comes along and repeats the strong dollar policies of Reagan and Clinton your never going to see the price of gas drop much.

Actually the Cheney/Bush Administration hinted very strongly that this war wouldn't cost us much because the Iraqis would be able to re-imburse us for liberating them with their oil riches.

I don't look because there is nothing I can do about it, so I don't care!

Me: Pull into Shell -> shut off car & pop hood -> put card in pump, enter zip code -> select 93 and fill up -> put pump back, close cap & door -> check oil and close hood -> drive away-> never looked at price per gallon or total price.

you heard what you wanted to hear. the oil revenue was never viewed as anygthing but a way for them to fund the rebuilding of their country. The US has never asked someone to "pay us back" Bush was clear from the beginning, it was about WMD's.

Since we are getting political......Bush has/had ties with the oil companies...all the savings are going into the pockets of the oil companies, and "investors"

Yep! Since my SS is my daily driver, I fill up when the tank gets low.

Gas prices are the more reason diesel will soon be the accepted in the country. I hear a Fisher Yoke Arm diesel just got 124 MPG in testing in the US not Europe and this engine could be produced within the next three years in a production vehicle with the expectancy of providing over 75 MPG. Current test in FYA and manufacturers willingness to work with the aftermarket tuners are seeing some vehicles now coming with double stacking and triple stacking tunes from the factory. I can see why FYA technology is not suitable for performance I can see where the idea will lead to something more feasible for the performance guidance needed in gasoline.
