Your weak dollar has gotten a whole lot better over the last few years. I remember when it was 70%. Now it's almost par.

You don't need so many refineries because you only have 10% of our population. By the way, is the Prius a big hit up there with the ultra liberal frenchies?

Try living in So. Cal.

Here in Carlsbad an newish 3/2 house on maybe a 6000sf lot will set you back a minimum of $800,000. And that's nowhere near the beach.

Things like this have ****-all to do with the federal reserve, it was the speculative investors who drove it into the stratosphere during the '00-'04 timeframe.

Same house in Lancaster will cost you about $320k, and you're 20 minutes from Willow Springs and 30 minutes from some of the finest driving in Southern California.

my house was 120k (4 bed, 3 bath, 2 car garage, 1/2 acre) but the prices of oil fluctuate so much that everything else never has a stable price

Dude, if you can sell yours for that much you should unload the property, move to tx, buy 8 houses (one for you, and 7 to rent). Single family homes down here rent for about $1500/month with no utilities included. So that's roughly $10,500/mn. And you house is paid for

Yes, but it is 105 Octane... I don't care if it's inefficient as long as it's 105 Octane and 25-50% of the cost of 100 unleaded. I'm in for burning 28% more fuel for the price of 93 premium unleaded after adjusting for the extra fuel consumption.

I lived in Quartz Hill and sold my 4/2 place over 5 years ago for $220. Great driving, but the desert sucked ***. Great street racing scene up there though. I lived 12 miles from Willow and down 60th street I could easily hit 120+, didn't take 20 mins to get there!

Mark

PS - Anyone want to buy my 3/2 house in San Antonio, it's on an acre and only is going for $110k
