If Romney gets in the Whitehouse the economy won't rebound much and not a whole lot will change because of both parties putting their party interests above the country's interests.
Clinton inherited a stagnant economy and it got better and it started to decline in his last year. Bush used the typical worthless supply side economics and the economy got steadlly worse. Obama inherited a bad economy and then whoever wins will inherit the same mess.
We can never compete with countries that use low paying slave labor like the asians plus no environmental regulations. Asian countries just dump their sewage directly in the ocean and pollute without limits....most of the people living there will die from cancer and pollution related illnesses.
When you are trying to compete with Vietnam, Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, and China it is a losing battle unless we want to start working for $4 an hour and dying from cancer in your 40s.


Oil prices have dropped a good bit over the last 3 weeks, but we won't see any relief for a month or more.

^ You're just a ray of sunshine aren't you? Why don't we all just end it now if there isn't any relief in sight?

thank you politics for trashing this simple thread lol I swear in a group of people, there is at least one person that cannot stay on a simple topic with out bringing up their political views. Everyone is not going to agree with you and you're not always right depending on how you look at it, politics is just a shit fest of shit. Like you alone have all of the answers to the county's problems.... And that you're actually going to make a difference fighting about it on a Ford Ranger Forum...

Gas went up again today! Every day it goes up. This is faster escalation in price than at any other time in past 40 years!
$3.89 for regular. Pity the people buying premium at $4.39

Thanks, Barry obama, the helpless clueless jerk in chief.

Ranger: But you live in Texas and are lucky. You just pull out your shovel, dig a hole, and premium grade fuel fills up in the hole.

You just siphon it directly into you truck. You guys are 2 fortunate.

"Wow". Do you guys complain about fuel costs as much as American's do? I know that up North fuel is a lot more expensive and has been for years, but here in the U.S. we used to take it for granted, and that is why the last 10 - 12 years has been so frustrating. It is very hard to budget and estimate when prices will lower.

We complain but nothing like from what I hear from you guys down south. It seems to spike and people complain then it will drop a third of the amount that it spiked and people are satisfied.

The worst part is the cost per barrel that we buy it from you guys is the same as it was like 5-6 years ago.

Saw $3.85 a gallon for regular this morning.

The lowest price we saw around these parts this year was earlier in the summer when it dropped to around $3.40 a gallon.

We didn't see the drops in prices that other parts of the country saw. Supposedly because of a refinery issue in the Chicago area.
That was the excuse used anyway.


I'd love to reply to the political commentary, but will bite my tongue.
