You must live in one of those alternative universes where people don't believe its their God given right to have whatever it is they want. You probably got that socialize medicine thing that takes care of everyone for free, even small babies who can't work. I'd rather have the freedom to drive a Hummer, encased in my own reality, and know that I am solidly protected from the poor and uninsured.

Here in the U.K. we pay over 1GBP (I think that is about 2 USD) for just a litre so it is several times the price of yours I think. Most of our price is the tax that our government put on it though. Perhaps yours isn't taxed so highly.

Revelation 6:6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

Do you know what this means?

As of right now, it is $3.30 a gallon in WV. I'm glad I'm not one of those people whom aren't happy unless their out and about. I hope it goes down before my family and I leave for vacation within 2 weeks. We're going to Gatlinsburg Tenn. I cannot wait. :))

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone.
I can see all obstacles in my way.
All of the dark clouds have reappeared...
it's gonna be a dark, dark, dark icy day.
North America may soon be frozen solid.
The Ice Age is coming.
We may not have much time; we must start using more fossil fuels now.
Let's all go out and get a Hummer. :-]

Right now the gas prices are $3.29 a gallon. and rising. I hardly go anywhere, but church and the store. but if the prices keep climbing, I won't be able to do that. I remember back in 1999, my son was born, and the gas prices wer .99cents a gallon. Alot has changed in almost 8 years hua? But after reading how much gas is in other places, I shouldn't complain.

oh poor babies south of the border. what a shame, but oil companies are gouging the public. here, north of the border it is 5:04 a gallon. In Britian, it is currently 12.64 a gallon and you think you have it bad. as long as people keep buying huge cars that guzzle gasoline and driving like there is no tomorrow, oil companies will continue to rule the world.
---ashley on 5/16/07

Here in Michigan you will pay any where from $3.29 to $3.79. In some areas it is even higher.
It's a shame, with summer coming we will probably be spending up to $5.00 per gallon.
I don't know anyone whose home heating bill during the winter were under $300 per month, and some were as high as $450.00
---lynet on 5/16/07

On Face the Nation this week they had a guy from the oil industry saying that even though that there are fewer refineries than 20 years ago that our capacity is higher than it has ever been.

Moderator - That's true because demand continues to increase worldwide almost every year. Unfortuately, the industry didn't expect the greatly increased demand that the world economy is having and didn't explore for enough new oil as well as create the appropriate refinery capacity.
---randy on 5/3/06

There is not a shortage of oil. There is, however, a shortage of refining capacity. Until the refinery problem is addressed, we will continue in the situation we find ourselves in today. As usual, the culprits are government regulations, special interests, money, and a general lack of common sense.

Moderator - Actually there is a shortage of both oil and refining capacity. The oil is available, however the equipment isn't in place to obtain more oil.

We are spending about $10 Billion a month in Iraq to help continue with an uninterrupted supply of oil. $10 billion would go a long way to ensure that we had good public transportation in American cities. Then we could look at our spending habits and our lifestyles to further reduce our dependency. But it all comes down to if we are willing to sacrifice. It is easy to blame the oil companies when we have some culpability. We have not been very good stewards of this earth.

Instead of using the world system of cause and effect, why don't we all as believers pray that the earth would bring forth such an abundance of oil that they would practically have to give it away because they wouldn't have anywhere to store it?

Moderator - We could and normally I would agree. However, in this situation, I believe the oil is going to be used to cause World War III as the world is now on a quest for limited resources. Watch as the price of oil increases and the USA goes to war with Iran this time. It's part of the New World Order plan to bring in the Anti-Christ.
---Linda6563 on 5/2/06

I don't think so Mod. We have LARGE supplies in Texas, Alaska etc. I think the East would bend and sell lower...IMHO

Moderator - The USA uses 20 million barrels per day of oil and must import around 12 million of those barrels. Our untapped oil is in the Alaska Arctic circle, but at this time is off limits to the oil companies to drill for the oil. Therefore, if the USA didn't import oil our country would go back into the dark ages in the short term until other energy sources were brought online.
---NVBarbara on 5/2/06

I know Mod won't allow me to list them, but some gas stations buy and sell ONLY oil and gas from the US, you can find them on the Net. If we don't buy imported gas, what can they do but lower the prices? If enough did this I think it could work.

Moderator - Actually, prices would go to $100 per gallon because demand would be greater than supply.
---NVBarbara on 5/2/06

Here in U.K. prices are somewhere between 8 and 9 dollars a gallon I believe. However, most of that is tax creamed off by our wonderful government. We can't blame Tony Blair for that one though because in U.K. we have paid roughly 80% in tax on petrol for a long time. I am soooo grateful for my bus pass!!

Best is to buy diesel operated cars. Diesel is cheaper and it gives you more mileage per liter or per gallon. My Toyota Tercel works on diesel
---A_Catholic on 5/2/06

Herb, that quote from REV was a prophecy about today's oil price increase :))
---A_Catholic on 5/2/06

One pound sterling over here per litre. That's about eight US dollars for a gallon.

The same here in Vegas, about $3.00 a gallon.
I only buy at the stations that get their gas from American sources.
---NVBarbara on 5/2/06

In the Philly Suburbs it was $2.97 at Wawa. That's like the cheapest in the area.
---Madison on 5/1/06

My question is not how much it is, but what are we as American Citizen's and Consumer's going to do about it? We control the market, not them, so let's take back control folks! Start carpooling, driving less, walking biking, or whatever is neccessary to use less Gasoline products!
