With china's economy allowing their people to grow financially we may only be seeing the beginning of high oil prices.Beside the fact that a big OIL man is running things in the u.s. :skep:

Yea gas prices are getting crazy!! :cursin: I don't drive my car nearly as much as I used to (even though it does get nearly 30 mpg in town) cuz of the rising prices. I just take the bike everywhere unless the weather is bad, I'm going somewhere I don't want to leave the bike unattended, or I need to haul something or go shopping. Last time I filled the car up it cost $32.00... for an Accord!! Luckily now I only have to fill it up every couple weeks instead of every couple days like I used to.

I can't complain too much though... right now we're at about $2.55 for 93 ocatane.... talking to my friend in Los Angeles last night and he said it was $2.89 for 91, and his turbo Supra requires just that :nonod:

Yea yea yea, I know, you got it much worse :crazy: I'm just sayin, for a rather small car that's a pretty good chunk. I remember when I could fill this very car up for $12.... that was about 6 years ago and gas was $0.97/gal... I do miss those days

I already do.
Its called a fuel surcharge.
When the national averages stay up for so long.
= I loss part of that charge.
= less money in my pocket for the same job.
= :cursin: :cursin: :cursin: :cursin:
