Better fill up today. Shit is crazy and will continue to be until Bush gets outta office.


To everyone in Europe or anywhere not in North America, have you seen the drastic rise in prices as well or has it been relatively the same for a while?

A question for all y'all Americans: How much do u pay for a litre of Super 95 or 98, I dunno how it goes over there, on gas stations?


Here we pay around 1.5$ a litre for 98.

You pay $0.78 per litre. In other words, gasoline in US is now half of European gasoline price.

So guess why it's so important for America to keep control over all world's reserves of oil.

^Some cities are decent from what I understand. But I've never been to a city myself that had quality public transportation here in America. In Austin, you either get on your bike or you drive. You could always take the bus but its gonna take 2hours to get to a spot that shouldve taken you 20 mins.

oh my....I don't have no liscence, registration, or insurance on my lil hooptie.

If I even tried to get legal I wouldn't have a penny left for gas....

WE all should do that....yo, we should say we ain't paying for shit till the gas prices come down!

Sounds like a good excuse to me....I'll let ya'll know how it works out if I don't get arrested first.

^^^ word...it's insane, with the high cost of living and the gas prices....

Do ya'll realize how much a gallon of milk costs? I have a 4 year old and she loves milk....

Are dairy prices connected to the gas prices? I'm asking cause this shit is just crazy...lol

oh, don't even try to buy the good stuff like organic...cause it's practically 5 dollars for a gallon. Gas is the same as milk, for some reason...

I do a lot of driving being co-owner of a bussiness and such. So it's really hitting hard all this oil shit.

Good thing they care about the environment though...

If anybody reads this and tries to do the conscience shit. Try to buy Citgo gas. It's owned by the Venezuelan goverment, and hence Hugo Chavez. As you might know Bush and this guy don't get along at all. In my mind an enemy of my enemy is my friend. Maybe if we all bought only their gas and then asked them with massive amounts of letter to sell their gas for much less to try and break the madness, maybe he'd do it just to piss Bush off.

That's not going to happen. These assholes know they can ask a lot more for gas and they'll keep stretching the prices and we'll keep whining but still filling up our tanks.

Jasper, don't fuckin run out of gas. That's pretty simple. Look for Citgo stations. It's not like buying beer, you don't get a choice of different gases, only grades when you stop at a station. Maybe it's different overseas but in the US that's just how it is. Besides its just information, what you do w/ it is completely up to you. I just seriously doubt that Citgo was giving any campaign contributions to Bush when he was elected to office. Dollars equal votes, and I personally say fuck anybody with ties to the fuckers in office.
