I don't. No need for me to buy it as my company pays all of my lease car expenses including gas however I drive an Infinity and it gets great mileage. I'll bet I get better mileage than your YUGO too.

LoL.. I see you Californians are enjoying the benefits of your "green energy" projects! The tons of ridiculous energy restrictions imposed by your nutty politicians in order to appease the environment wackos living among you are the reasons you'll continue paying through the nose. Maybe the obama people will give u free gas.. ask them!

It's all Obama's fault:

On June the 30th 2009 oil mysteriously jumped by more than $1.50 a barrel during the night, to reach its highest price in eight months, the kind of swing that is caused by a major geopolitical event.

The amazing, true cause of this price spike has now been released by a Financial Services Authority investigation (FSA).

Although not authorised to invest company cash in trades Steve Perkins, a long standing, senior broker at PVM Oil Futures, had managed to spend $520 million on oil futures contracts throughout the night.

On the morning of the 30th an admin clerk called Mr Perkins to ask why he had bought 7 million barrels of crude during the night. Mr Perkins had no recollection of the transactions, and it turned out that he had made the trades during a “drunken blackout.”

By the time PVM had realised the transactions had not been authorised by a client, they had incurred losses of $9,763,252.

Between the hours of 1.22am and 3.41am, Mr Perkins gradually bought 69 percent of the global market, whilst driving prices up from $71.40 to $73.05, by bidding higher each time.

Why did Obama "force" a drunk trader to buy all that stock.

From $1.48 to $5.00 doesn't even cause you people to Blink? Oh, I see, it just might be because
of Obamas rules and regulations! Sorry, if
I am guilty of mentioned Obama in a
negative way. Will I have a stranger sent to my
house tomorrow? Been knocked off here too many times to count. Its been a long time since I've
had a peaceful nights sleep, not worried about
"you" democrates, but where our country has gone,
and to who has taken it.....Rest well, others
will do the worrying.

PS Got the election sewed up yet? How much did
it cost to keep the pink slips stopped until
after the election. Heard it was in the amount of
hundreds of thousands,

Fox News is asking if Supreme Court will make it illegal to sell anything you own tomorrow! WTH? The MSM has really tricked the people.

If you watch a variety of networks, the difference is very obvious!

And yet it is YOU who supports forcing the oil/gas companies to lower their prices.
Oil/gas companies have every right to make whatever profit they can as long as the sheeple are stupid enough to line up to buy their product.
I have absolutely no problem paying $5 or even $10 for a gallon of gas.
If you don't like the price, the don't buy the product. It's still a free country (unless the GOPasaurs take over).
All we have to do is deport the illegal aliens and Democrats would never be in power again.

It happens...this morning, i ended up on Fox and Friends briefly, and they were trying to spin Obama's stifling of freedom of speech....in the fact that the Secret Service is very careful of different protestors, and their distance from the Presidents and other assets....which would likely, now also mean Romney, i suppose.....

I'm sorry to hear you were subjected to FOX. LOL Though FOX&Friends is relatively harmless.

The rest of your thread I'm not following. Can you please clarify?

WOW! Imagine that! Secret Service protecting their charge? Whodda thunk?!!?

Can't say that I have seen it. I haven't watched SNL since the days of Belushi, Akroyd(sic), Murray. For me it ceased being as funny. Although Eddie Murphy was pretty funny with his Mr Rodgers Neighborhood parody, and "I'm Gumby dammit".

Your ignorance is blinding.......Please sit down let us adults talk....NOTHING NO AMOUNT OF DRILLING NO AMOUNT OF REFINEIERIES WILL BRING GAS BACK DOWN UNDER $3 A GALLON.......Here in the USA we still pay less today per gallon then any other industrialized nation in the world...
WE COULD MAKE THE OIL BUSINESS TAX FREE LET THEM DRILL ANYWHERE AND LET THEM BUILD ALL THE REFIENIRIES THEY WANT..........EVEN WITH THAT GAS WILL NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER GO BELOW $2 A GALLON....And how fair would tax free be for a private business...?? and how fair woul it be for no regulations for just one industry.......
Another bit of wisdom.......from the peanut gallery........that has no basis. Supply and Demand .......that's capitalism.
