You can all suck it. I just paid 2.98 for 87 (that's at a Shell, not some mom-and-pop cheapo station). Cost me 24 bucks to fill up on my gay little Saturn.

Dont get used to it. Oil is back up to $90 after dropping just under $88 yesterday. Of course gas stations will change their prices right away.

Yep. Price goes up for the barrels, price jumps at the pump, price goes down for the barrels, it takes forever to reflect at the pump. Bullshit.

And OPEC says they'll cut production if the price of the barrels drops too far for their comfort.

OPEC can suck my left nut. If gas ever becomes a big enough problem, I'm converting to something else. Hell, I'll run E85 even if I do dislike it. I refuse to make myself a victim to some ************* that need to maintain their dusty *** mansions (and exotic cars) in the desert.

We're looking for cures on Cancer and deseases that tickle your happy spot, but what about the important stuff? Why not a synthetic gasoline? Or even maybe modify corn oil, so it behaves more like petrol. I'll stick with Genital warts if it means I pay a dollar per gallon*. If we can clone a sheep or yours truly, we can find a way to modify and duplicate a molecule that will burn to high hell. And I'm not saying its going to be cheap initially. I'd back it, if they could make a variety of octanes, and change the amount of energy released when burned. And if they could make it perform like 87 octane petroleum, or even E85 if running a vehicle that requires it.

Get some scientists high, let them brainstorm for a while and see what they come up with. We made nuclear power and we made the fleshlight. I think fully synthetic fuel is next on our list.

*Disclaimer: 944o does not in fact have an itchy happy spot.

When I bought my Jeep in 99, I could fill it up for $20. Those days will never come back but prices will go down a bit. I hope they at least go down to $3 for my Moab trip next week.

$4/gal for 93 octane today, though I paid $4.29/gal when I filled up last. But at least we have it back.
