    Just wondering what gas prices are where you live. Here in NW Washington they vary from $3.45 to $3.85 per gallon/. Here is the kicker... $4.19 a gallon for diesel. WTF?? :mad:

    Wow that sucks. It's about 3.10 here right now. I don't go anywhere with my car that I don't have to. I was just talking to a coworker last week saying it was odd that diesel was so much higher. It use to be cheaper that regular unleaded gas.

    You kids have grown up in a country where energy prices are low. AND you grew up in a time when the prices were historically low even for this country. Diesel is very high due to international demand - it's more widely used elsewhare puting it in short supply.

    Here's a chart of pump prices. Note that they are not at an all time high adjusted for inflation (which BTW is higher than the govt stats indicate)

    The bad news is that with economic conditions we're seeing now with Fed rate cuts, inflation will spike, hopefully not like the Carter years.

    The good news is that vehicles are becomming more fuel efficient, just not quickly enough.

    You kids? Jesus, PWP how old ARE you? Yes, people love to say how gas is so much more expensive in their country. But, that is mostly due to taxes. Which we pay also. Just not so much at the pump.

    It's all about squeezing out the middleclass.

    Bottom line.

    It's a false scarcity.

    North Amerikan Union... look it up.

    Don't believe me.

    Research it.

    abiotic oil look it up.

    I'm all too familiar with "The New World Order" and that the powers that be want a NA union just like they have in Europe. That's why they're not closing the borders and paving a super hi-way from Mexico to Canada.

    Bilderberg group look it up.

    They are out of control.

    Diesel is over $4 a gallon and off-road diesel is around $3.70 or so right now.
