    Who predicted this? I honestly do not see that happening, if it does however, in brief, our economy is done.

    I just watched it on the News. Same people who predicted it was gonna go to $3.00 this year.

    In short, you keep buying it, they'll keep raising it. Supply and Demand, They still have plenty of supply. They have way too much demand, they're taking advantage of it.

    Normally, when there is ENOUGH Supply, the price is dropped, its when there is a high demand is when the prices inflate.

    they still have PLENTY of supply.

    Demand is just WAY up there, and obviously people are willing to pay $30 + to fill their honda.

    People seem more than happy to pay 3 bucks a gallon.

    I just can't go without driving, so I pay up.

    it's just that - people can't go without driving. and for whatever reason, most people continue to own and drive thirsty SUVs.

    starting to take advantage?? where have you been since the 70's
    lol

    i think 2 things need to happen very soon
    1, get rid of the gas guzzlers...
    less gas guzzlers = more supply for the rest of us, thereby lowering prices in the short term

    2, get the fuck out of fossil fuels...
    the technology is there, but it is held back by big business because oil is more profitable for now...

    if oil became extremely unprofitable i bet we would see an alternative energy source up and running within 2 years providing it can use some of the existing infrastructure...

    and it really is amusing how fuel/petro prices keep rising, but the oil companies are bragging about having the most profitable quarters EVER...

    thats just great...

    and how about taxation without representation...
    taxing something that is a necessity should be illegal, kinda like how food has no sales tax (in NY)
    i heard an average figure of 40 cents per gallon goes to fed and state taxes...
    2 bucks a gallon goes to gouging :ph34r:

    You will never see the end of big, gas guzzling machines.

    It's just like cigarettes, they can keep raising the prices, but smokers will stil buy them. I said that when a pack of cigarettes hits 5 bucks, I'm quitting. It never happened, at times I pay $7 a pack.

    I think it costs all of a US nickle to produce 1 gallon of fuel.

    its not production its the original cost....a barrel is split up into many categories....so not that much oil goes to produce lead free gas

    I haven't researched, but I thought a barrel was around 40-50 USD.

    barrel- Any of various units of volume or capacity. In the U.S. Customary System it varies, as a liquid measure, from 31 to 42 gallons (120 to 159 liters) as established by law or usage.
