If your pumps haven't yet jumped $.20+ a gallon, you may wanna snatch up some gas. Soon.

Already hit up here - gas went from $1.80 to $2.00 overnight. My aunt said the same thing happened in St. Louis.

Goddamn arabs/oil companies are bleeding us dry, and it's only going to get worse.

1.99 for regular in Topeka. Just wasted 30 bucks to fill up today.

I was "glad" I filled up today before it jumped from $1.93 to $1.99! Pisses me off.

I still find it ironic that some folks will pay $4.59 for a gallon of "organic" milk or $1.29 for a bottle of water, yet bitch about the price of a gallon of gasoline...

My old man is like that. He studies the price of gas like smart people study the NYSE. It's crazy. He's actually called me specifically to discuss the price of gas in the past. Now that I think about it, that's what he's calling about most the time.

Heh. With three little ones, it seems as if I do. I actually buy more gallons of milk a month than I do gasoline, by far.

Hmmm...what kind of people do YOU know that buy organic milk????

We are complaining about "the man" sticking it to us on something we really have little choice on whether we buy it or not. Gas. Gotta have it. Organic milk? Not so much.

You don't have buses? Taxis? Bicycle?

You're forced to the gas station?

Yes, I'm being intentionally silly here, but the emotional reaction to the price of gasoline has always fascinated me.

FYI, over 30% of the price of a gallon of gasoline is due to federal and state taxes. Only 44% is the price of the crude.

Taxi's? nope. Bus? nope. Bike, yeah but the 20 mile trek to work just isnt realistic.

As for the percentages on the price of gas....like I said, THE MAN is sticking it to us...whoever that is.

I'll bet you are in a very small minority if that's true. I have a buddy that had to move to a bigger house as he had more kids. He said he ****ed himself out of his house.

Not that I would pay $4.59 for a gallon of organic milk mind you, but I burn through considerably less milk in a week than I do gas.

Here's when I notice gas prices... when I fill up.

I don't ever pay attention. When my tank gets low, I stop at a gas station. Notice the price, say, "Gawdam!", fill up, and move on with my life.

Really.. don't we ****in' own the oil in Iraq now? Why the hell am I paying MORE for my gas now.

Sheesh...

Donger
03-04-2005, 09:03 PM

No. No we don't. Last time I checked, the Iraqis are getting 100% of the profits from the sale of their crude.

Can I safely assume that you don't have three kids, nor a wife/mother that's on an "organic-only" kick?

Donger

Like I've said, it's mine. I choose to buy that ridiculously priced milk rather than deal with the consequences of not doing so.

Just like people chose to buy gasoline instead of dealing with possible alternatives.

ChiefGator
03-04-2005, 09:31 PM

Not exactly. The profits go into a trust fund controlled by the U.S. and the U.K. Also, we are working to [re]privatize the national oil company, and American oil companies look to gain the most ground.

Strangely, most American companies want Iraq to quit pumping so much oil, so that they can keep the price of Petrol up. Don't forget, that Saddam traded enormous amounts of gas for food, with the U.S., even just weeks before the invasion finally occurred.

Maybe this should have been posted on the D.C. board.. but, I really think this is pretty funny.. Never heard this before.

"CHEVRON TEXACO-California based and the world's fourth largest energy company, Chevron Texaco (along with Shell and Exxon Mobil) was a major exporter oil out of Iraq through the UN's Oil-for-Food program. U.S. National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice is a former director of the Company, and Chevron Texaco operates a tanker named after her."

You're way dumber than I thought you were. You think I should change jobs because we are being raped by the Arabs? Have you ever heard of a Public Utility? Like the Electric companies? They are all regulated because they are essential to the good of all of us. The Oil companies should fall under this umbrella given the recent skyrocketing oil prices. Is anyone forcing you to buy electricity? You are one ignorant son of a bitch.

Wow.

Like I said, people get emotional over the price of gasoline. Thanks for the graphic example.

As I said, no one is forcing you do perform your present job which requires that you purchase gasoline. In other words, it's a choice.

I bitch about neither for that very reason.
