Default Gas prices

Is it just me, or have the number of MPG threads tripled in the last few days???

"Do CAIs increase MPGs?"

"Will this $10 chip really give me 30mpgs?"

"What kind of oil should I get to save gas?"

NO. NO. THERES NOT ONE.

I dont want to sound rude by posting this, as gas prices effect all of us and I understand that completely. But here is some advice, go easy on the pedal, lose the 31" tires, and if you have a 4.0 like me, just give up.

I think fuel prices will stabalize soon. Folks up top running everything and pulling the strings know they can only go so far. If fuel starts to cost people so much they can't eat or even afford to drive to work, it will have to stop. Its like they want to devastate the US but know the limit, sadly, we have not reached that limit in there eyes. I hope this makes sense, hard to put in it words what I am thinking

i agree completely, and I do believe they aim to create a debilitating situation that they can use for power, its mighty shady. but lets try not to get into a conspiracy theory/political debate. (i dont want to get the crazy guys in here)

Gas/oil prices are climbing because the the devaluing of the US dollar due to the Fed printing money without gold to back it. I think it is called Quantitative Easing.
