The cheapest price I can find for a bottle of cooking grade corn oil is $7.00 plus tax when a couple months ago it was less than $3.00 including tax.

Now we can't even afford to eat popcorn and fry potatoes thank you Mr. Bush for putting our food into the gas tanks of SUV's and those who drive in endless circles around town for entertainment.

Institute mandatory carpooling laws instead of blowing our food out the tailpipe.

Just exactly what information do you use to decide if I am a smoker or a non smoker in my gripe about the price of cooking oil?

Only you and I have posted and you said "you" so you are referring to me right?

Reagonomics is doing exactly what it was designed to do-Starve the middle class and the poor so the rich can get even richer.Our nation has been in decline since Reagon convinced the Congress that our nation can be ran like a business.In fact businesses are dictatorships and our nation is a democracy. Any child should know this was a capricious idea.At any rate,it has never worked and now it is time to try a different approach which hopefully will include middle class and poor before it is too late.

MAYBE our stupid society will learn its lesson not to use a food crop for fuel.

They didn't think before they started it. BTW, if we started ignoring some of the environmental activists, and continued our research; we MIGHT just be able to free ourselves of reliance on oil from other countries and tap our own....That is IF we stop the flood of illegal immigration into this country that just adds to the needy population. Man doesn't anyone watch C span and THINK these days.

Look, you can't blame any ONE politician, or group of politicians. BOTH parties have enough on them to deserve the blame.

There are also OTHER factors in the scheme of things: more taxes, more regulations, more unfunded government edicts, consumer expectations, consumer buying habits, supply and demand, etc.

They need to teach economics in high school; and I DON'T mean p.c. Keensian.(sorry don't know if that spelling is right)

To start with, it is not OUR society, us, that is doing this.

It is our government that is doing it, of which we have no say in.

It's not like a petition was put forth to get this on the ballot that we wanted or grain crops distilled into fuel resulting in not being able to buy the food product from those crops.

If laws were instituted like mandatory carpooling and stop driving in endless circles for entertainment there would be no need to burn food for fuel.

But that aint gonna happen because that would drive down the price of gas and since big oil owns Bush and our elected officials, well, same old story.

In the end it will be the people that decide because it will get to the point that hungry starving people will not care one bit about hybrid fuels in the car.
