Why complain? I see more and more SUV's and huge pickup trucks on the road everyday. I see folks running into convenience stores and leave their vehicles running for almost 5 minutes at a time. I see folks doing 80-90 mph along highways like its the normal driving speed. Folks DEMAND cars be able to do 100+mph and DEMAND they do 0-60 in 5 seconds or less AND still want the same car to get 40+ mpg. So stop whining and suck it up.
It takes less gas to keep it running, rather than stopping and starting the engine.

Am I on glue? I am all about executives getting paid the big bucks- because if I was an executive- I would want to be bankrolling it too. However. 8.57 Mil? WHAT? And what did it say, plus insurance and company plane? I Dont know, but this is ridiculous.

Hey Confounded, it also takes less time to steal it too when not only does it have the keys in it, but it's also already running so the thief can make a quick getaway!

Maybe if he gave back the 8.57 million, the company's losses wouldn't have been so high. How can anyone get a 1.8 million bonus when the company supposedly lost money anyway?

Hey citizen,
WA-WA Gas is Sunoco Gas. WA-WA has a contract with SUNOCO to supply ALL of their WA-WA's with Gasoline.

Why is everyone so distraught over a CEO making $8 million? And most was in company stock, not in cash paid by your $50 at the lousy pump. Instead of everyone crying about gas price this and gas price that, why doesn't everyone take a step back and try to adapt to change. Gas prices will NEVER be what they were. Lessen your driving. Buy a hybrid. There are too many giant trucks and SUVs out there. Do we really need to cart the kids around in a freaking Ford Expedition?

Fact of the matter is we are all stuck with this until we find a cheaper alternative, which could take over a decade. Let's learn to deal with it and stop blaming everyone in sight and cut out the excess.

I have one of those giant trucks. It has proven to be one ot the more econonomical vehicles that I have ever owned. I switched to diesel and have an actual recorded mileage of 29 MPG, compared to my previous cars at 12 to 17 MPG. I fill up less often now. Hard to believe? Check out some stats, you will be amazed.

Well Confounded, not all cars have remote entries. Several states have enacted laws that fine people $3K for leaving their car running while they run in to grab their newspaper and coffee.

Oh JHC. Who cares anyway. You win ok. I will leave my car running until I get a fine. I'm lazy like that. There are stripper law suits to worry about today.

Brichards, I am glad you are getting good gas mileage. It is a sad irony that the switch to diesel has you now paying an arm and a leg for that ($4.30 at my gas station).
We will be feeling the effects of this all year and throughout the future until an alternative method is found. I just don't think the CEO is at fault here. He is merely profiting on our dependence. It is called capitalism and a free market.
And all the government conspirists, while I don't agree with all of our policies, without the government, all that oil would be going to China instead of the US and you would be paying $7-$8 a gallon instead of $3.50. But I guess that would be Bush's fault too.

Don't blame Sunoco for the high price of gas. They buy the oil on the open market. Did you know oil was $32 a barrel before Bush invaded Iraq? Now who caused the the price to sky rocket?
