Frankly it's gotten to the point where it's very difficult to determine which filth is worse...loughner, lanza, holmes or the forum's deranged anti-gun zealots.

Well dumbass it isn't just the cost of gasoline that is going up, it will affect the cost of diesel fuel as well, and diesel fuel powers our transportation system from the railroads and the trucking industry that delivers everything you eat and use.
Farming also is heavily dependent on diesel fuel, and dummy farmers are who feeds you and the rest of us.
When it cost me $800.00 a day to fill up my truck, i pay for it at the pump, but YOU and EVERYBODY else pays for it in the stores, restaurants and in anything else that requires the product be delivered, i simply collect a fuel surcharge and get my money back.
The same happens with farmers, they pay for the increase to plant and harvest etc but you are going to pick up the tab with higher prices.
That is called inflation.
Reality is i am still going to make money, i am still going to live a upper class life, but it is seriously going to hurt people who are barely making it already, and that is a whole lot of idiots who voted OBAMA.

Diesel fuel went up several years ago during the Bush administration when they forced producers to manufacture lower sulfur fuel. Since that time, diesel has exceeded the price of gasoline and hasn't come down since.

My employer is now replacing our old trucks. We're going through DEF like nothing now. He buys it by the 55 gallon drum and orders four at a time.

And furthermore azzhat, fire does not distinguish rich from poor however it does balloon out of control thanks to stinking inept do-gooders who deny the construction of fire lanes.
More news for you, you deranged big government force loving pervert...obamacare will and has begun to collapse by its own weight because it's an utter insane failure from the get go.
And furthermore sludge-face, the price of fuel has doubled under the regulations of b. h. obama et al and if you think people are going to pay obamacare premiums when 2007 showed they did not pay their mortgage in order to buy gasoline and food then you can and should think again.
And furthermore are you trying to tell me that a self-serving punk going in and out of the home of bill ayers and launching his political career from the home of bill ayers is not a marxist? If so then I presume you must believe people going in and out of a crack house don't do crack...Now GFY
Not only that, but we now have a President that is overwhelmingly supported by the US Communist party. So even if one tries to defend DumBama's reputation, that endorsement is one argument you can't win. Thirty of forty years ago, if any politician had that kind of support, they would be run out of town on a rail. Today, they win elections and reelections. What a sad direction this country is going.

End long-haul trucking. We need to move back to trains as a means of cross-country shipping. You're part of the problem, not part of the solution.

Your arguments are typically illogical. StormFront, the fascist-racist neo-nazis, supported Ron Paul. Does that make him a Nazi? Of course not.

Of course, you aging, wrinkled McCarthyites live in the past. You can't keep up, which is why you hate "progressives."

No, the reason we hate progressives is because they are trying to turn this country into a Socialist nation. We love our country the way the founders created it. For people that want government to run their lives cradle to grave, there are already countries set up that way. China and North Korea come to mind.

Ron Paul was a racist. This was proven by his newsletters which during one year, he made a million dollars on. While it doesn't prove he was a Nazi, it does prove that he was indeed racist.

Trains are fine but trains don't go everywhere. And how do those products get from the train docks to the storage docks and then eventually to the store? If you guessed trucks, then you guessed correctly.

Manufacturers move their products across the US the cheapest way possible. The cheapest way in many cases are trucks. Put those products on a train, then the cost goes up which we all pay for at the store.

I have been in the trucking industry for 3 decades, trust me, shippers choose who they ship goods with.
Train tracks do not go everywhere but roads pretty much do.
Raw material moves a lot by rail but virtually everything that is considered a finished product moves by truck, and the vast majority moves by truck somewhere in the distribution line anyway.
Sorry trucking is going to be around a long long time "professor" unless you have figured out teleportation and how to make it work.

Nonsense. Firstly, you don't know what "socialism" is, and secondly, nothing Progressives are doing is different than what American politicians have done for decades.

The Founders died a long time ago, and their nation was highly imperfect. It permitted slavery, slaughtered Native Americans, denied women the vote, put poor people in prison...one could go on and on. We improve it as we go, which is what they HOPED we'd do. And that's exactly what Conservatves hate - IMPROVEMENT.

I do agree that Paul had his name on some unsavory things, although I think the guy takes some interesting approaches to some problems. He sees the problem we have with the military-industrial complex better than most other Republicans, for example.

Actually trains are cheaper, especially in terms of fuel costs. The ONLY place trucks should be used are in moving freight from rail heads to warehouses or retail points-of-sale. We need to spend some stimulus money ramping up the railroad system, as well as increasing light rail to take cars and trucks off the road.
