    Re: Gas Prices

    The Senate voted down a proposal to tax the oil company's record profits.
    So there's no incentive for the oil companies to do anything about gouging us consumers

    It doesn't help that the same bunch of Eeen-steins a month or so ago voted down legislation to produce more oil here in our own country.

    Actually, I'm a bit confused as to how it can be 'gouging' when the oil companies don't set the price of a barrel, commodities traders do. And much of the profit they make goes to shareholders, not just 'the oil companies'. I guess we can call it gouging the same way the whole gas price ordeal all gets blamed on White House policy, when our gas is still cheaper than almost anywhere else. We had a map with European prices the other day, and ...I bet people in Europe are at us right now.

    At any rate, due to the sorry state of alternative transportation around here, I have to drive almost 500 miles a week-- I'm really glad for my gas saving car but am almost tempted to get a scooter for trips where I don't need to get on roads going over 50 MPH. Almost, but there are too many crazy people even on the side roads around here.
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    We're down to $3.93 a gallon today, at least that's what it was where I stopped for gas. I'm looking forward to being able to cut back on the driving when mr. gracie is off work the next couple of weeks. Country living isn't fun with gas going crazy.

    Re: Gas Prices

    Holy crap -- less than $4.00 a gallon? We're well over $4.50.

    The big thing here (stupid!!!) is people going over the border to buy gas in Tijuana for two bucks less per gallon. Stupid because the wait in traffic to come back into the U.S. is two hours or more at the border crossing, so you waste half a tank sitting in traffic, plus the gas you burn going back home. The latest news today was that the Mexican border towns (Tijuana, Tecate) were out of diesel fuel.

    I took the trolley today.

    OK, maybe, just maybe, I will quit complaining about our prices. WOW! $4.50 a gallon. YIKES! Luckily, I am a stay at home mom, so I can coordinate when I have to go into town with other errands. It is a 20 mile round trip. It is not unusual for my car to stay parked for 3 or 4 days at a time.
