I always wondered why that Shell on West Broad can charge so much when the Getty across the street always has cheaper gas. I guess that Shell is the closest gas station to downtown, so if you're heading westbound on West Broad you might not realize there's another one just down the street.

Despite what the article says, it's called Adams Avenue, not Adams Street.

As our so called leaders continue to spend and spend the value of the dollar will continue to decrease.
We were already trillions in debt before Bush wasted some 70 billion on Iraq.
A place we had no business being in the first place.

But wil the democrats spend also ? OH yes, who would stop them.

If politicians really care about gas prices why do they onlly give tax incentives to a limited number of Hybrids
why not incentives on every hybrid or atleast those that are very economic perphaps 30 mpg plus...

And the blame game continues.

Domocrats say Why doesn't the President release some of the oil reserves? exactly what are they for? what consititutes an energy crisis?

Republicans say oh let us drill here in these closed forbidden areas and the prices will go down.

Experts say no, that's not quite true.

Can we solve this with out the snipping sniping spin??

To be certain, the situation will not get better soon if actions are not taken soon.

If we started setting up rigs to extract the oil that we have on US territory, it will take some time before production begins. In my opinion, that process should start ASAP.

In the meantime, forge ahead with looking at alternative energy sources. But not one without the other. Ethanol is not the answer. In fact, it's a disaster.
