Whey isn't the Government doing something about these high gas prices? What happens if the Truckers stop trucking because of gas prices. What can we do? Whom can we call?

I wouldn't hold your breath on gas prices going down any time soon , To me gas prices are still cheap.I have freinds in canada whom i vist ocassionaly and there gas is $3.60 a gallon . Think thats bad try Europe were gas has been over $5.00 a gallon for over a decade now. Yet every body still works and the trucks keep rolling . Yupe Get used to seeing higher prices.
You could hope on the band wagon and invest in oil stocks to make some money off this.
Plus you could do what i did years ago and by a Mtn bike for transportaion and use Public transit . PS: the govt is going to do anything about higher gas prices when its making lots of money from these prices .

I suggest an immediate coupon program, based on last year's tax return, plus bonuses if you have a breadwinner in a DSSR danger OR hardship zone...

Lets shut the world down for one week.
That should help. World wide boycott. Last
wk in oct sound good to me. I can do without
gas for one wk or maybe two. Nanny just get
the word out. I know you can do it. Wonder
if any other side effects besides lower gas
prices. Good luck.

"Powell told Bush this was gonna happen..."

Yes, but he wasn't the first to tell him. And he wasn't the second or the third or anywhere close to those. Telling him or any of the shrubbery anything is sort of like p---ing in the ocean.

Nanny. I wish I could see cheap gas in the future, but I can't. There is no way we can control the 800 pound gorilla. China wants the oil so we are going to end up without it. It's time we stopped coddling the oil companies and transfer all the goodies we have been awarding them into research and development to make non-fossil fuel energy a reality instead of just a hope. Do it thoughtfully and we can achieve polution free energy too.

It has been 30 years since the oil embargo. During this time, we have done nothing. I do not think we will now, until some ships go down. China in return pays much more for oil that is in transit, and our ecomny takes a nose dive due to no oil........................ The anti christ could just be crude oil.......................

If I told you soon I would be lying. The damage is done as demonstrated by many fine points in another Off- Topic message strand- Energy prices...

This much anticipated energy bill comes out and what does it do? Read the fine print and see that it cuts off United States oil development interests at the knees...Quest Oil just poked a hole in a major find and well, any uptick? Barely, because the Bush administration oil interests remain overseas, ignorant of the suffering that the middle class working family is going through. I have never seen such obvious back turning ever. This makes Nixon look like a boy scout!

GAS PRICES WILL NEVER BE CHEAP AGAIN.....WHY????

GO TO www.lifeaftertheoilcrash.net

Dear Reader,

Civilization as we know it is coming to an end soon. This is not the wacky proclamation of a doomsday cult, apocalypse bible prophecy sect, or conspiracy theory society. Rather, it is the scientific conclusion of the best paid, most widely-respected geologists, physicists, and investment bankers in the world. These are rational, professional, conservative individuals who are absolutely terrified by a phenomenon known as global "Peak Oil."

I heard that there were HUGE oil reserves in Siberia. Dunno if it's true, but wouldn't that be an option. Of course after reading lifeaftertheoilcrash, maybe not. Now I'm freaked out. Gonna go look at horses this weekend.

If it wasn't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all.

Good stuff in that link, weatherbill, but not new to me. I've been playing with those numbers for years and years. It's all been known in scientific circles for decades. The Catholic church knew the earth revolved about the sune long before they imprisioned Galileo for publishing it in Italian so commoners could read it. Along with the idiocy of "intellegent Design" and overpopulation, the religions of the world also wants to push onto you the assinine notion that God provides and man can do with what he provides as he wishes. Bulls--t! We are already running out of space and oil and food.

i suspect that "overseas interests" is the rule now... i suspect that most of the "financial leaders" of this country have moved their wealth offshore and have every intention of keeping it there......

H Ross Perot tried to tell US what was going on in '92.....
remeber that "sucking sound"???

it's more like a toilet flushing now....

Search the constitution and show me where it is the government's role to interfere in the free market.
Supply and demand cannot be governed without catastrophic results.

Fools take the easy way out.
Years ago it was the pump and dump.
Now group plays.
Do yourself a favor... learn to read charts.
Learn to read message boards.
Learn to read PR's.
If you get into the easy way it will be the only way you know.

Then too, show us where in the Constitution there is any granting of authority to the free market or any such imagined entity? There is NO assumption of any particular monitary format there. "Congress shall pass no law abridging the...." (or some such wording), it says, and thereafter it list several things, but not any "free Market I can find.

The US is the highest user of gas in the World. At $5 a gallon we the economy will collapse with major unemployment. Russia fell vey quickly! Europe gas has been high for a while because they have such high taxes. Plus over there they drive very small cars.

The Soviet Union fell due to the waste of fighting al quida. Europe is, compared to the US, a quite small place.

Soviet Union fell because they were communists and could not compete with The US when it came to an arms race.
Communism is flawed in that there is no money in it.

hmmmm...
closet liberal...

interesting concept...

i checked my closet and it's full of rifles and shotguns...
looked under the bed [Wink] , found more....

maybe i'm a "linen closet liberal" there's really some linens in there with the 7.62x39 and the .223 cans... [Big Grin]

Soviet Union fell because they squandered what little money they did have fighting useless wars...sound familiar?...
they cut too many corners, didn't offer enough rewards for work accomplished, and they have poor/non-existant business ETHICS... investing there is more risky than betting on horses....
we are headed that way now too...
no we aren't that bad yet, but the markets have been lame because people have lost TRUST...and i thought dubya was putting that back together....


the pentagon is supposedly gonna try to close a bunch of bases to save 50 billion over the next 20 years...we coulda saved 150 billon in the last two years by not going into Iraq..... [Roll Eyes]

i guess my demand that we continue to push ahead in stem cell research does put me on the liberal side (on that issue), but ya know what? if we don't? it'll just be another place we will lose economic ground to asia....
the carbon revoltion will be much bigger than the silicon revolution was..... if we ever get there....
i hope we can find a way to use non-fetal cells, but we have no choice but to STUDY them 'till we comprehayand a way to do the job WITHOUT them....
