Holy christ! That's alot of beer.

Well I just got raped. I went a little further out of town a bit and instead of $3.65 a gallon (usual town prices as of today), I got it for $3.56 a gallon instead. $65.00 dollars is what was spent. $51.00 to fill up my old Ranger, the rest went into my gasoline cans for my lawn equipment. Where I went today is about 15 minutes north of me and they're usually about $.10 to $.12 cents cheaper than what you'd pay in town.

$3.81 here in central Florida. Good thing I payed with cash, or else it would have been 5 cents higher per gallon. I remember when I used to bitch about 3.11 back in January. I sure regret that now.

My little brother told the same price a few days ago for Ocala, FLA. I use to bitch a little bit about it but not now. Mostly what I bitched about though was how my Ranger drank so much gasoline mainly, and yet the V8 F150 does better on gasoline than mine does. Now that sucks. My little 3.0 has to push a truck around that's damn near the size of an F150. My ranger is a 2004 Edge 2WD.

There was a gas station that was like 3.70 something while every one else was 3.99. There were cars lined up MILES back. F*cking dumb in my opinion, your going to be sitting there, wasting fuel, wasting YOUR TIME for a whopping .29...? Your going to save $5 on 20 gallons, how is it justified to sit and wait for gas that you will save $5.....

I dont like high gas prices as much as you do, especially since im only sixteen and work like 15 hours a week but you guys are all wrong, if youre gonna hate em at least hate em for the right reasons. Its not because of obama its mainly because of all the problems in the middle east. And everyone imports there oil, all the oil in the world goes in to a reserve and each country bids on it, so the oil that is found in the us probably isnt even used in the us, if china would switch to cleaner fuels and didnt have to buy half the the daily supply there would be more making the price for everyone else go down. You also realize that the republicans dont regulate the oil companies and democrats like obama want to pass laws to punish the oil companies for high prices.

You need to go back to the begining of this thread and read a bit. It's EVERYONE causing this problem. Mainly the United States in general, not just the polichikens either. They have done nothing to help the economy and our U.S. DOLLAR DECLINING, IS WHAT'S CAUSING IT. It's everyone as a whole, not just certain groups here and there. Oil companies in general will raise the price due to cold weather (AND THEY HAVE USED THIS AS AN EXCUSE) just to make their own stock go higher to get more of our money. Do some research, FOLLOW THE MONEY and see what you find.

I did read the whole thing and the us dollar has been declining since 1971 oh and FDR took the us off the gold standard in 1933, a few months ago gas prices were at like just over three dollars where i live and then egypt happened and they rose to about 3.50 and climbing ever since. So the dollar has been declining for years and then in a matter of a few months gas prices shot up.

FDR actually didn't close the gold standard, he thought about it but WWII changed that. It was Nixon that closed the Gold standard in 1971, and since the U.S. Dollar is set as the standard of what runs the oil markets including overseas, that didn't help one bit. Egypt and Libya didn't help at all either. But when I saw that oil was only $112.00 bucks a barrel and yet the prices at the pump didn't change tells the story. I found alot of stuff on the web when I started this thread. When an oil company's public earnings statements is viewed it tells another story other than what they say. I have enough WWII Documentaries here that confirms FDR didn't close the gold standard.

You can thank "Ben Bernanke" and the president and his staff. Espescily ole ben. He is inflating the dollar by pumping currency into the econeomy with nothing to back it up with. like earlier in the thread nothing to be backed with. Its the entire polical system on both sides. if you really wana find out what is going on read the book "economics in one lesson" by Henery Hazlet. its the blandest book you will ever touch. only reasen i read it was for class. but its the government screwing us.

I'm about to get raped a little later today when I go and get gasoline for my truck and lawn equipment. I'll let you guys know what we're paying today later on. That's basicly the same goddamn law we have here in the states, which is bullshit imo. God forbid they see how it affects the economy in the form of traveling, groceries, and shipping supplies to companies that make a living by producing products that help us live our lives.
Got my pricing from oil price.net and confirmed with bloomberg.

But i called bullshit on anyone calling greed by any other name, really.

lol

Today it's currently at 107.06$

I don't know where you got your numbers, but even at 112, we'd get raped at the pump.

I got mine from reading the NYSE and Bloomberg. Yep, we do get raped at the pump even though the current price $107 bucks a barrel the pump sure as hell aint reflecting it. That was what I was really talking about. It all boils down to one word: GREED. What else can you call it. MY numbers were acurate when I created this thread, but they aint now. It's up and down worse than a toilet seat in a public restroom.

No the opposite. I don't agree with that website at all kid. I have alot here on FDR, and there's hardly no mentioning of him actually closing the gold standard. He may have orchestrated the plan but Nixon implemented it. It's like the NAFTA agreement. Carter erected it, and Clinton enacted it. There is a difference. It's basicly that, and alot of other things that got Reagan elected in 1980. I was 5 at the time when this occured. Looking back, Carter was a full blown idiot. FDR had died while he was in office before WWII ended and really started long before FDR even was elected. It goes back to Woodrow Wilson creating the Federal Reserve Bank. He cried when he done this and said "I've taken the people's money away".

I read that book, boring and bland aint the word for it. But it did make a few points though.

He's the damn idiot that needs to go and I won't forget the currnt polical parties at hand either. Wish somebody with a set steel balls wud step up to the plate and fix shit.
