    This has to stop, or the country is going into big time recession! The fuel of commerce must come down or everyone suffers!

    Sorry to get on this fuel thread...as I am one of those that says "It is what it is", but I got to thinking today:

    Why are we over fighting a war and spending trillions of dollars (which we will be paying for with out taxes) on the "oil people" then turning around and paying 3x what we should be for fuel?

    What is up with that?

    Let's not make this political....but just think about it!

    That really sucks!

    My take is simple: Lets (USA) take over the oil wells over there and call it even. I would love to just see $2.00 gas again!

    Funny, NONE of those places I would live in!

    The USA is the greatest nation on earth, $3.50 a gallon or not!:usflag:

    That being said, the environmentalist & those in Washington that are afraid of them are who you should spew your venom at.

    It's amazing how we allow our hands to be tied on energy production, because everone is afraid to be called a "polluter"

    If the truckers would stop hauling for 1 week all this would stop. No bread, milk, nothing gets shiped for 1 week and you would see a down slide in prices. I don't move my trucks in less we are working. I don't just ride to be riding. We don't go here and there for the fun of it no more.Untill we the people do something like not buy the product, the prices will continue to rise. Deisel here in GA yesterday was as high as 389. Per gallon. Do your part and stay away from the pump. I don't fill up on Friday Night like I used to now I wait till the last second.Just my opinon. I don't like it either but I do have Cheveron stock in my portfolio now and it helps put a smile on my face every week.
