It's really quite sad.

It is very sad........and discusting!!! Gas is $4.09 per gallon here!

I thought I just heard something on the news about a large increase in oil production somewhere this summer. I forget where this was said, but the comment was made by whatever country it was, that they are very displeased about the effect it is having on the economy. Well...........Duh! It took this long to figure that out?

My cheapo gas station is up to $4.65. We hit $5 a gallon some time ago at other stations.

I've heard it said on news programs that people won't be able to afford to drive to their jobs. I don't think that's an exaggeration.

That is great!

Prices are going down a bit. We found a station today at $3.99/gal. We were up to $4.19 at one point.

If only the speculators would stop speculating, ethanol blends would go away, we could drill our own oil(should have done it years ago)and build more refinerys we would have cheap gas right now.

Sigh...I can only dream. (can you tell which side of the aisle I stand on? )

Good news... http://biz.yahoo.com/ap/080615/saudi_oil.html

You guys should try the UK if you think prices there are really that bad.

In my town we pay £1.22 / litre for unleaded. There is 4.5 litres to a gallon. So we pay £5.49 a gallon, which is 10.7163 USD. Where I live isn't the most expensive petrol either, so think yourselves lucky!

Plus we have petrol tankers on strike with more strikes planned nextweek and so many forecourts running dry, so prices are going up as well as petrol running out.
