Leave the horses alone. Animals suffer needlessly in this world because of mankind. Leave the animals alone. They have NO interest in humans. Let them live on their own without being bothered by their biggest PREDATOR.

If you look at gas prices as a whole compared to a world market on the price of oil/barrel being consumed and produced. We in US, pay MUCH less than the world at large. As the price climbs for oil what we're seeing here is far less than say france or england. Our gov. subsidises the cost we see at the pump by A LOT. IF they didn't we'd be paying upwards of around $6/gal right now.

This is completely false! Our government does not subsidize oil. Gas costs more in Europe because of much higher taxes than us.

Oil supply is at a 15 year high!

We our being gouged, plain and simple! Have fun in your SUV this summer!!!

The main factor in price disparities between countries is government policy, according to AirInc, a company that tracks the cost of living in various places around the world. Many European nations tax gasoline heavily, with taxes making up as much as 75 percent of the cost of a gallon of gasoline, said a spokesperson for AirInc.

In a few Latin America and Middle-East nations, such as Venezuela and Saudi Arabia, oil is produced by a government-owned company and local gasoline prices are kept low as a benefit to the nation's citizens, he said. All prices updated March, 2005.
