Gas expected to peak at $3.60 a gallon

The price of regular gas is already about $.10 more than that here in Sacramento, CA. And premium is right up around $4.00 a gallon.

I don't care if gas is $5 a gallon i barely use my car..

As much as I hate paying more, this could make a few people reconsider their vehicle choices or the way they drive. On the down side I'm expecting emails telling me not to buy gas on Tuesday and forward this to everyone I know.

Still, certainly, others do. And they have businesses. Their costs and needs for their personal expenses get passed down the chain.

it's breeders and their children that are causing this strain on all resources

Prices can't always just be raised,unless the market supports it.If a business uses fuel they can also find a way to save fuel.Consumers can always choose to buy less,buy elsewhere or not buy at all.

True, but business needs profit. If one sells at a loss, you're not going to make up for every loss with volume.

As producers of a product begin to cut back production, and demand remains, prices will go up.

Milk, gasoline. If you don't have to have it, if your family doesn't need it, if your customers and clients don't need it...great, they will continue to have incomes to pay taxes, that increase, and other items that hopefully you supply directly or indirectly through work.
