    Our gas prices went down last week from 4.09 to 3.97.... but that is still ridiculously expensive. I went to my Mom's after work today and picked up my bike (its a pain in my ass to try and get it to fit in the useless tiny storage space my apartment building provides us with, so I had been keeping it in my mothers shed). I plan on riding it to work several days a week, if the weather will cooperate with me. Save $$$ on gas, and good exercise!

    We hit a record here today: $1.41 a litre. And that's for the cheapest grade stuff - I have to use the silver grade. I'm scared to even look at what that costs. I keep putting off filling up the car. hoping the prices will drop but I'm starting to think that ain't going to happen.

    Btw, $1.41 a litre is about $5.35 a gallon

    We're still about 10 cents below that, but I'm really not looking forward to the gas bill when we go to Regina this weekend.

    Sad really. I used to love going for long drives to clear my head. Guess I'm going to have to learn to love long walks.

If they are nothing more than a delivery systems than there should be no subsidies. Maybe suspend the subsidies until they use them for their intended purpose.

    The issue is a little more complicated than the GOP allowing the big oil companies to hose the american tax payer but I will tell you that researching the subject only brings up storys that say just that.

    If it isn't true, how come I can't find any stories supporting the subsidies on conservative sites?

    Its funny how the GOP calls the government helping the poor entitlements but when the someone want to take away corporate entitlement's, they scream "you are raising taxes" They really think Amercians are stupid. I love how they harp on and on about "We need to drill more to bring the cost of gas down." Bullshit. Oil is a global commodity. It is sold overseas for more profit. Our government has no say on the price. The companies just want to drill more so they can sell that gas in Japan for 10 bucks a gallon and their GOP puppets in congress are only too happy to help them. Its just pure greed. If the United States let all the companies drill as much as they wanted, the price would stay the same. They sell their oil to who pays the most. We cant force the oil companies to sell their oil to America. That would be socialism.

    At this moment the Oil company heads are defending their taxpayer handouts to congress. The GOP is defending them of course.


    Hypocrite Orin Hatch.

    "This hearing is a dog and pony show, it should not be used to score cheap political points, but I am afraid ... that's what we are going to see here today," Hatch said. Then he pulls out his prop.

    Charles Shumer responds, "One of my colleagues suggested that this hearing is nothing more than a dog and pony show, "Well you would have an easier time convincing the American people that a unicorn just flew into this hearing room than that these big oil companies need taxpayer subsidies. That's the real fairy tale."

    It was 3.60 one day, I heard prices were going to go down some on the news, so I waited to buy gas. Next day it was 3.73! I panicked and bought gas, thinking it was on the rise again. Last night on my way home it had dropped to 3.58.
    Bad timing on my part.

    It's supposed to go down by a nickel or so today here...And it's also looking like Ottawa's asking the petroleum industry for an "explanation." I'm not holding my breath...

    $4.02-4.05

    I thought gas was going to start to go DOWN before June 1. YEAH, RIGHT! I don't know which is/was worse; this or the two-hour gas lines of 1979.

    I think I saw a $3.80 earlier today. A little over $0.20 less than it was a few weeks ago.

    Exclamation

    USD 7.83 a gallon for normal (EUR 1.40 a liter)

    Germany - where gas prices miraculously increase before every major holiday and summer vacation.

    My car is worth less than the gas it takes to fill the tank.

    Houston, TX......$3.59 a gallon for premium unleaded (depending on how much credit we have on our Kroger shopping coupon card, I can get anywhere from a .03 to .10 additional discount per gallon.)

    I like that Kroger gives discounts on gas by shopping there, but the nearest Kroger to me is thirty minutes away. We shop there if we have a few stops in the same town, but won't make the trip just to go to Kroger. The gas we use getting there and back would eat up whatever we saved by shopping there. I would love to see a Kroger built locally, but it will never happen. Walmart Supercenter has a strangle hold around here and they have managed to run the majority of their competition out of town.

    Shit, it skyrocketed about 20 cents in a week. Or maybe I should be paying more attention. Anyway, I saw it at $4.09 today.

    Ummmm...an arm and your first born just to fill the tank once.

    Actually, in Tupelo, MS, we're staring at $3.48 a gallon.

    Yesterday, when I was out, I saw regular unleaded for $3.42. Luckily I got rid of my FJ cruiser, and got the Fiat, so it's a lot cheaper to fill up!
