    Soon It Will Destroy Us All

    So us hard working middle class, or shall I say lower class now (the economy kinda made it that way), aren't getting anymore money or cost of living raises. How can we even afford gas anymore? I'm going to be back to driving to work where I'm gonna be paying $60 a month for tolls...

    My Plan

    The freakin' gas prices are so damn ridiculous, I've decided I should just get a horse.  It's cheaper to feed the horse, the horse will give you love in return and hell, horse poop will probably help my lawn.

    Why They're So High And How To Beat Them

    Gasoline prices are so high because most cars can't run on anything else. That means most drivers have no choice and have to buy gasoline if they want to drive. And that lets OPEC (which controls the world oil market) demand sky-high prices; they know most of us can't take our...

    When Will It End?

    I'm fortunate I live in a part of the country where gas is cheaper (NJ).  There are still some stations around here that have regular gas for a little under $4/gallon.  It seems to have leveled off around $3.96/gallon.  Even though I fill up about every 2-3 weeks I...

    The North.

       Up here in Canada, the gas prices are just horrible. I love to drive my little Honda but the gas prices are just killing my fun. Most of these prices are going up due to the gas comapnies making more money and getting more rich as we speak. The rest of us are getting...

    Prices From Outside The Us.

    Here where I am at currently the price is 7.53 for a liter of gas.  So it takes 3.3 liters to make a gallon so that is 24.85 in local currency (ILS).  You convert that to USD and that is 7.20 a gallon of gas...It is going up and up and yet the oil companies have such a hold on...

    It Sucks

    Our gas prices, last I checked, was around $2.92 a gallon. That may not be an awful too lot compared to others, but it sure sucks for my family. We are poor. I know we are, and I can't deny it. But, my mother is also in the ICU in St. Louis (2 hours away from our home) with AML...
