High gas prices means people aren't buying cars, which means dealerships aren't making money, which means my dad got laid off . Conclusion. OPEC sucks big fat hairy donkey balls.

we pay by gallon and the norm around here (NY, LI area) is around $4.15 per gallon. it sucks pretty bad
#10
Well its up to 4 bucks over here so don't tell me that doesn't suck.

its because China and India are developing, meaning more of them buying more expensive goods and luxuries, such as higher priced food, cars, electrical appliances. This means more demand, so the prices rise as the supplies lower.

i heard the reason why was because the suppliers just want to raise the prices. they know people have to buy gas, so they just raise the price just to get some extra money.

that's what i heard though. i may be wrong?

Stop complaining ...

Here in South-Africa, the fuel price has doubled in a little over a year.

My Dad said something pretty interesting the other day. Its his opinion that there are people trying to unite the world into one government (I guess you'd call them the Illuminati), and they're trying to get every country on the same level to make it possible. So he thinks that America is having the high gas prices AND recession to bring us down a few notches. I guess the same for the UK to as well, just without the recession but with higher gas prices to compensate.

And meanwhile, as others have said, China and low and behold, INDIA, who we've always been taught to view as desperately 3rd world, are growing in leaps and bounds.

So I don't think thats completely true, nor do I think its impossible. Its a theory.

EDIT: What if all the networth we're losing in this recession is somehow being given to India!?
We're only strays.

what i think is that the oil companies see the electric car (such as chevy's volt), trhe hydrogen car, and then also the hybrid (just about everything these days) beconming more popular. They know that in a period of time the majority is going to turn to alternative resources, so they're gettiung they're money while they can. Oh and also the whole "we want to destroy america" thing. People wonder why were in a recession? nobody is doing anything because people can't afford to get there.

Exept for the fact that oil companies make little to no profit from petrol pumps. Oil companies make their money from extraction and the things before it reaches the pump. For example, in the UK, say it's £1.10. Only about 30p of that is going back to the oil company.

So in reality, petrol ischeap, 30p a litre, but then theres tax, tax on tax, and some more tax.

If the governments didn't subsidize the **** out of it so that the end-consumer cost is hidden, it'd be probably closer to $10 a gallon.

Stop subsidizing, let the market fix it.

No it isn't. The US Gallon is only 3.79 litres.

So it's about 7$.

I love it that everyone bitches and moans about the price of fuel, but when it comes down to it, they still sit there and pay for it. That's the British attitude to everything anyway, we enjoy being pushed around by Government and corporations because it gives us something to moan about.

It's mainly due to everyone wanting fuel and there not being enough to go around. Also taxation on it.

Everyone needs to LEARN TO LISTEN when people are saying fossil fuels are running low and not dismiss it as political propaganda.

If anything, that would lower our gas prices. Sure we're spending a lot of cash on fuel to mobilize the troops over there, but they are a country wealthy in oil.
