Can't lose something you've never had, instead don't buy a Ford, that's why all of our scrap iron is going to China. Also all of our jobs. Soon, Fords will be shipped here, made in China, with our own steel.

Can you rephrase this please. I am not understanding what you are saying. Are we selling China our steel or is Ford buying here and shipping there for fabrication? Got more details? thanks

This is what will happen with gasoline prices: they will fluctuate. They always do

Glad I could help

China has been buying all our scrap for years, much more ecomomical than deriving it from ore. Ford is currently setting up shop to manufacture automobiles for the masses that are sucked off the rice patties into the cities to work at factories(68,000 for Wal-Mart alone) Soon, after production is in full swing, Americans will be able to buy cheaper Fords that are made in China, meanwhile, we continue to promote slavery, buying these products, in the name of Globalization. Look at everything you own, even the tags on your clothes, auto parts, not a SINGLE television is made in America, yet, we all have several. This is Americas vision of sharing the wealth, luring indegenous peoples away from self-existence and self-sustainability(remember the American Indian?, the millions of Americans that owned farms?,etc.) There is no telling what language Americans will be speaking 50yrs. from now, but eventually will probably be Chinese. They have trains operating on magnetic rails at 300MPH while we have no affordable, state-of-the-art, public transportation for the masses, except mostly foreign made autos.

Gas prices are ridiculous. Almost $4 a gallon when oil prices are down. Price gauging!

It's more than price gouging, we are totally dependent on our automobiles, no matter what they raise it to, we have to do everything, everything, with gas,farm, mow yards, transport products found in landfills a few months later, use gas to cover it up, and gas to replant the area once reclaimed, the only thing gas isn't used for is a run-on sentence, or is it?

I agree. But that's just it they make everything we NEED and absolutely have to have to live our everyday lives ridiculously high because they know we have to have it and they will get their money! i.e gas, diapers, basically anything for babies, personal hygiene products, and healthy food. It's ridiculous. And the government wants to talk about obesity and health issues from eating habits but I will be the first one to say if they made it cheaper to eat healthy more people would. I personally love fruits and veggies and would choose them any day over a bag of greasy chips but look at the prices. It's that way with everything not just gas, but gas is the one that frustrates me the most!!!!! Especially in the summer time they know more people will be traveling and they can take in all this extra money and same with any holiday the prices always go up!! They are so greedy!

It will also hurt the small business owner and our local economy by not buying gas for a day or week or how ever long. There are a few small locally owned stations around town those are the only ones I use specifically marathon stations their oil is all refined and drilled from America I'd rather keep the money in our own country and town. I try to do all my shopping local and help support the economy we all live in

Ive known about the Marathon Stations selling only domesticly produced gasoline and the only gas i buy is MARATHON BRAND.

I am curious as to what brand of motor oil I can buy so I can change my own oil therefore making sure I only use a domesticly produced motor oil in my vehicles.

No you dont because I have a buddy who almost purchased a nice looking but used electric car at a auto-auction and when they said all it needed was a new bank of batteries he called and checked the price and it would have cost $9,500.00 dollars to replace the old batteries.
