Time to seriously think about CNG if you drive a lot.

Re: Crude Oil at 91 a barrel

Second thought: buy energy stocks when oilis up! CVX, COP, OXY, XOM...the list goes on. If nothing else, you can profit-take enough to pay for the higher fuel cost...even after capital gains theft (oops, I mean taxes)

THAT'S WHY YOU CAN'T MAKE MONEY...YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BUY LOW.

Buy as soon as you see oil rise! Oil stocks usually follow

Re: Crude Oil at 91 a barrel

The Arabs have stated they would like to keep the price of oil in the $70 - $80 range, so I'm sure this will be corrected soon.

Thanks OPEC. I really need that ol' 6-cylinder wagon now...15mpg won't cut it at that price. 20mpg will.

I'm beating 20 in this:



...though I'm actually disappointed because I thought I'd do a lot better than I am. Continued improvement will have to wait until summer when I can either fix up the carburetor or convert to fuel injection.

The trunk is large enough to park an economy car in.
