Wait, Hustler, did you just say you have gonorrhea... and it's in your ****? Doesn't it take a hot man-injection for that to get there? I suppose it could also be from such an advanced case that it's progressed into the blood stream. It eventually gets to your brain and starts eating it away and insanity sets in. That would explain the vividly verbose e-thug rants on those poor deserving noobs (may they rest in peace, or pieces as the case may be). I've wondered where you pull all that powerful imagery from.

Reminds me of Happy Gilmore..."You eat pieces of **** for breakfast?"

Anyway, back to the issue at hand: I just put $30 of gas in my tank last night and it only filled the tank to 2/3 to 3/4. Prices here have fallen $.15 to $.20 in the last couple of weeks. I believe OPEC recently admitted that gas prices are over inflated and they are ramping up production to help lower prices...we are buying less gas, so the supply and demand has past the point of more-money-for-less-stuff netting more money overall. They are starting to slide backwards on the bell curve. That's still coming from OPEC, which is made up of some of the world's pretty despicable countries in the Middle East, South America, and Africa, people I REALLY love giving money to.

We pay more on the world market for oil because our money is worth less.
why do you hate freedom?










I wonder if the durks realized that America is changing its transportation infrastructure, which although miniscule, is a step toward making them obsolete? Fuel of peace.

I really hope we can find a renewable fuel for the internal combustion engine...because electric cars suck to drive.

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

dude BS take alook at the euro dollar relationship in the begining the euro was .86 to the dollar and now it is 1.6 or so. Or hell the canadian currencyt ot he dollar or the pesso for that matter our currency has been systematically devalued becouse
1. We are wageing an expensive war with no end in site
2. We are trying to bail out a bunch of 20-40k $ a year people who bought 200k $ houses
3. We love to overreach our means and a good amjority of americans live there lives on credit.

So hell heres a solution dont let people borrow so much ******* $$ when they make none to begin with and have 0 $ to put down on stuff. Get our stupid asses out of iraq pronto. And raise the god damn interest rates about 15% or so to start. This will bite the dumbasses who are living on credit and air but the responsible people who actualy build capital and stake real assets into things will be able to weather it and hopefully the ones who are ousted will learn more responsibility if not in there lifetime then in there childrens lifetime.


Yes gas prices have been ridiculous in Europe for a long time but i say they are bordering on the sameness here. Given the public transit choices and average miles most europeans need to drive for work shopping etc americans have to use alot more oil. We are simply very spreadout when compared hell most of us drive 15 miles or better one way to work. Alot of people are like me and have to drive about 30 or more. This is hardly doable on a bicycle, and there is no buss or train i can take anywhere in my frigin area at all to help cut my costs on this. So pull the troops and if they try to raise the price anymore nuke the ******* dessert into a glass bowl and go take the oil ourselves plain and simple. So long as we are just throwing boddys outt o match theirs we will continue to be innefective and lose our youg men and women.

Ya know I understand the economy is in the *******, BUT THE PRICE OF GAS HAS DOUBLED IN EUROPE SINCE 2004 too!

http://www.eia.doe.gov/emeu/international/gas1.html

The rise has gone right with other countries price rise.
Not everyone is out to get America, they would rather screw the world as a whole.

You sir are an idiot if you don't see the relationship with crude oil prices and the spiking of gas prices.
