    Shocked me today to see this in California. Get ready everyone else!

    Some gas stations out here have taken down the giant signs that show the price, so you don't know what the price is 'till you get to the pump.....


    amazing.


    Thanks for that energy policy, Cheney!
    Thanks for the heavy speculation, hedge fund managers.
    Thanks for the Iraq war, Bush!

    The GOOD news is that we have an engine that can go 40 miles for a dollar!

    AFS Trinity XH™ Plug-in Hybrid Program – 2008

    AFS Trinity Power has developed patent-pending technology that makes it possible for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles to achieve 150 MPG, go 40 miles in all-electric mode, and use gasoline for additional unlimited miles in hybrid mode.

    In July 2007, in order to very quickly demonstrate all of the key attributes of this technology, the company mounted an effort to build two fully operational XH-150 SUV prototypes using off-the-shelf components. The two vehicles—modified Saturn Vue SUVs—were built in less than six months. They were unveiled on January 13, 2008 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit (Press Announcement) and (Salon.com test drive report).

    On April 8, 2008, AFS Trinity started a cross country tour to give Americans their first onroad look at what CNN and others suggested may be “the car of the future.” The XH-150 arrived at the Capitol Mall in Washington, D.C. on Sunday, April 20, 2008 (Video of Congressional Ride-and-Drives). On May 2, 2008, AFS Trinity and Ricardo announced a joint Extreme Fleet™ program that will slash gasoline and diesel use by car, SUV and truck fleets. (Press Release).

    What's your price without the crazy federal and state taxes out there?


    BTW--interesting link on the engine there. I'm going to have to look it over later.

    Oooh--you guys have some of those same screwy blend issues that CA has, IIRC from my time out that way. Drives up the cost...plus the IL state government takes a pretty good chunk for itself.

    Why is this going on all over the world, they had a riot today in Belgium over it and they are close to rioting in the UK, Does Cheney/Bush control Belgiums gas prices----:confused:

    Will our Holy Prince Obama be able to "save us"?

    There is a lot of blame to go around...

    Cheney controled the tax threshhold on the forst $30/barrell that we tax imported oil, although the energy task forcecan't release the official #s. That means that the more the price goes up the less they pay in taxes.

    Most of the blame goes to the hedge fund speculation on peak oil.

    'Prince' Obama isn't an oil man, he might actually try and chance the energy policy. He might push alternative fuels, and research on becoming energy independent.

    Iv'e never seen anything like this in my lifetime, soon the trucks will stop then the delivery's will stop then we will really be screwed.

    Old Saying in the trucking business, "if you got it a truck brought it"

    Gas is 18-cents a gallon in Iraq.
