I can't wait for Obama to win because of all the hope and change. We'll have a new set of corporate interests to slowly kill the nation and further our enslavement to public trading!!!

Olderguy: You only put in 9.6 gallons. You had a long way to go to hit empty. I have put 11 something in mine. I was a full needle width below E. I was stuck on the tollway in IL and there wasn't an oasis for a while.

I never can fill my truck because all of the gas pumps shut off at $75.00 here. I have found a few that go past that when I was travelling for work and have put more than a benjamin in the tank then.

1.6 cars have 10gallon tanks I think. I've never put more than 10 in my 91, unlike my 95.

they are, 11.9 I think. idiots just think they're actually out once the needle points to 'E'. I go a full needle's width below E, and still only put 11 gallons in. that leaves me 20-30 miles still

Americans are driving something like 10 million miles less already in 2008 than 2007.. I still see 130+ barrel for oil... Doesnt seem to make one shittin bit of difference.

**** THAT more like a bike than a Prius. I guess you don't drive as much as we do but still, $100 a tank...never, well at least not in the Miata..i could deal with 100 bucks to fill up my explorer but it's a MUCH larger tank.

Actually I was really pissed that the shut-off didn't work. I was in the store at the time and a friend of mine saw it overfilling and stopped it.

Only lost a few gallons(that I needed to pay for), but it was while gas prices were still relatively reasonable.

I hope I can still roll my miata when I have gray hair. Hopefully I can still stuff 24-year old women in the miata too at that age.

Alot of you are still overlooking why gas prices in the US are so high... it's because the value of the dollar is in the *******. Until we get the economy back on track, nothing will change.

Just the basics:

We pay more on the world market for oil because our money is worth less.

I am not an Economics Professor or anything by any means, but the value of the dollar hasn't halved. The price of oil has doubled. Hence why gas is more expensive. If the dollar was worth more, it would help us out a tiny bit, but that margin at most is 5-10%. A gallon of gas has doubled in price since 2004, and then some. the average gallon of gas was 1.74 then, its 2.00 more and some change now. I highly doubt the dollar has half the worth that it did in 2004 when the economy was already heading into the *******.

The price of gas goes up with the price of oil. Its the obvious factor. Kinda hard to argue. Go here, and look at this chart
