    I put in $5.75 in my ZX12. That was about a 1/4 tank.

    Of course, we need the high shit. It's still hovering around $3.07 in my area for the cheap shit.

    I hate this. We're all getting fucked by a bunch of guys in suits sitting around guessing about the future and what the oil supplies will be then. I could do that, here's my guesse on the futures, we're gonna run out, so quit fucking me untill then. They could at least wear a turban with a ruby in it when trying to prognosticate. Hell for all we know $4.00/ gal could be determined by a magic 8ball.

    I've been paying 3.20-3.30 range for 93 all year as with the end of last year.

    I do not expect it to ever go down, people are use to paying it so its here to stay.

    Oil is pretty much decided by a cartel. And corn is too. And coal. And nuclear power.

    Everybit of energy production in the world is mired in corruption. And I used to work near the top of the natural gas industry - and it's the least corrupt out there. And they were pretty goddam corrupt.

    To quote my Geography teacher today... "the biggest reserve of oil in the world is in Canada. The only problem is with the situation up there they can't make a profit unless the cost of a barrel is $60." They have only started drilling it fairly recently. Of course just like the Middle East it pays a lot more to be less productive.
