i would have put that i wouldnt but that was not an option.

i will always buy gas to race even if i ride my bicycle to work every day, but thats because all 3 offices are 3, 5 and 7 miles away.

You have to really wonder how the economy would be with $20.00 a gallon gas? One fill up would cost me $840

$20/gallon.... I can remember I never put $20 worth in my Bonneville, even when I bought premium... although premium was $1.05/gal at the time...

Would go back to using only one car for the family and business. Drop off daughter at school, drop off wife to work and then off to work. I work out of my home. I would use the Mazda.

OPEC doesn't want us to have an economic collapse.

Like the Heroin addict, they want you to live to purchase more of their product.

Gas prices here dropped to less than $3.75 per gallon today. The arabs are hoping they can keep us from deciding it's really time to make a significant change in our habits. They are betting we will do the same thing we did before, accept the cost as a fact of life and continue buying gas hogs.

They laugh while we argue about democratic or republican proposals, and quietly buy our banks, insurance companies, and other profitable businesses.
This is so when the oil gravy train finally dies they can just move to their new occupation, and we go from their customers to their employees.

Your best bet is to consider it at $20 per gallon and act appropriately. I am not sure what your business activities are, but there are always options. Log your vehicle use and see when you actually must use so large and hungry an option.

Look at something like a Dodge Sprinter and a trailer, or other combinations that would allow you to reduce fuel costs dramatically.

regards
gary

Exactly they are trying to push our buttons to see what we are willing to pay for gas. If gas is too high and people stop buying, this will hurt there economy and they won't be able to spend $5 Billion (gas money) like they did with Wachovia. This however is unlikely to happen until we figure a solution for more homegrown oil.

I think this time is the last time. We suffered through this twice in the 70's, decided we were going to switch to alternative energy, then OPEC cut the prices to the point we abandoned our alternative energy efforts. I think even if they cut the prices this time the alternative energy technology has progressed to the point that there will be enough people demanding it, no matter how cheap gas may get. The American public has had enough of OPEC playing with us like this. Plus with our economy like this the price of imported fuel is just making our economy worse. I believe (and pray) $4/gal gas has put the final nail in OPEC's coffin and their stranglehold on us.

If we produce more within our borders then we buy less oil from OPEC. We get some hydrogen, ethanol, and electric vehicles on the roads, that's even less that we have to buy from them. Then work on nuclear, coal, wind, solar, and hydroelectric and that's even less we buy from them. Personally I would buy E85 and run it in my truck, but its not available in my area.

Back in the 70's my dad was on a tug boat in the north east. I wasn't around back then, but he told me stories about how the oil companies had the oil barges to stay out in the ocean, while the prices kept getting higher & higher! Isn't that something
