People complain when asked by the media, but they keep buying. They must get to work. Folks do not seem driven to electric vehicles, bikes or scooters. The adjustment to $4 seems complete now and the next step is $5.

People are driving fewer miles studies show. That means fewer accidents yet insurance goes up. Fewer miles means less road tax, but less wear on the roads too. The tax rate is going up.

We need to find more cheese.

I recall when Obama accused Bush of controlling gas prices. I also recall Obama stating he would make sure gas prices are lowered. I would like to thank Obama for continuing to screw up the economy for all, not just the big guy.

It's a strange situation. We have all these SUVs and high powered cars being introduced. There's a push for electric, but range and price are dampening that. Despite the high gas prices, a great sales year is predicted for these behemoths. It's like the economic cycle is set into motion and can't be stopped by political forces.

Exlent poin. I just left the Ford family and purchased a Chevy Traverse. I love it, my wife hates it.

That's 19 cents a gallon on gas. Higher taxes on seniors(done). Higher license and registration fees by 60%. If he can boost a fee anywhere, he's doing it. The free bridge just doesn't cover it. He'd tax Hostess cupcakes if they did not go out of business.

Snyder puts citizens on lockdown.
