    I went to Garden City on Friday, filled the tank at 3.54 on the way. Got off the Southern and the first Exxon was 3.96. Next station was 3.99. Got back and refilled for 3.54

    Pshaw. We've been paying that for weeks here, in city limits, anyway. It's finally reached the suburbs (where I work), but it's 4.49 around the corner from my apt.

    While the steady rise in gas prices are hurting many perhaps it will be the catalysis to wean the US off of its oil dependence and embrace greener renewable technologies. Cheap oil has stifled research and development while at the same time encouraging wastefulness. There are many new and exciting developments in alternate fuels for transportation along with heating and cooling technologies. The higher oil prices are pushing these to the forefront with new products in production and many more on the way. What we need is a fresh approach from the government, big business in the energy and transportation fields , and most importantly consumers, to facilitate the changes that are needed.
    As dark as it may seem today I have faith in our ability to do what needs to be done. For anyone interested here is a link to some of the near term possibilities on the transportation front. Some very cool innovative ideas.

    I definitely agree with you hardcore, we need to find other ways to produce energy. Doesn't matter if oil runs out 5 or 50 or 500 years from now, eventually we'll need other methods.

    I do wish they could charge $2 a gallon for those filling up regular cars and $5 a gallon for those driving Hummers
    You do the math..... I'll do the alfredo!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

    I'm ready for the H20 to hydrogen converters and send the middle east into a tizzy. It would send the price of oil through the floor in no time.
