Well, as predicted we are at an all time high in the USA. Nationwide average is at $2.05 per gallon of unleaded.
I am going to take the liberty of saying I told you so last November.
Prices will be over $2.50 by summer (if it ever gets here).

Our racing will be cut back about 50% this year as we just can't afford it.

You would have seen the same thing even if Mr Wishy Washy would have been elected. You'd probably would have had a new bunch of taxes to go with it, too.

Plus I can imagine what he would have done in Iraq, pull out, go back in, pull out...

I'm more concerned with what's going on here in the USA right now, not somewhere we have no business being in the first place.

Let's not make this into a discussion about Iraq please.
I've already lost two friends there that I shouldn't have.

Ok, then, he would have pushed to increase the CAFE average to 35 mpg, driving the prices of cars to the moon.

Welfare folks would have appreciated the raise higher taxes on the middle class would have gotten them.

The point is moot, he didn't get elected she we have a different set of problems.

It's going to be at least ten years before we get the first drop out of the ANWAR fields in Alaska, so don't get too excited.

It's still only around $1.97 here so I can't complain too much, as I know many of you are well over $2 a gallon!

That little beebop car I got last spring has paid for itself tenfold, at 40 mpg. It ain't pretty, but it sure is cheap!

Update:
Between the time that Beth posted and left the Michigan City house gas went up

TWENTY ONE CENTS PER GALLON!
They raised the prices from $1.97 to $2.18 in less than an hour.

In the past week gas prices have jumped here from $1.59 to $1.93 for 87 octane at the cheap gas stores. So much for my commute every day. Might be time to go by a beater/hoopty mobile.
