Re: "$1.82"
In the UK our fuel is hovering around 1.50 (GBP) per litre. 3.785 litres to the US Gallon = 5.68 GBP per Gallon.

5.68 GBP = $9.09 per Gallon.
 Quoting: GeordieLegend


Doesn't that extra money you pay cover your healthcare and other taxes?
 Quoting: closing eyes


Nope, it goes towards MP's salaries, expenses, extra homes, cars and "trade missions" abroad.

...and probably cocaine, paedo-rings and satanic cults/rituals.

Money has to come from somewhere, right? That shit aint free...
Propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach...

Re: "$1.82"
Bush went on tv during his presidency to try to explain the high cost of fuel prices....the networks harpooned him. Now under their beloved there are no interviews, no blaming except for blaming Bush. Crude prices in 08 where $150/barrell. They flux between $90-100 now. Why? Why the high gas prices?

Background of my avatar: [link to en.wikipedia.org]

The religion of submission cannot survive an open and honest discussion of its convoluted and foolish scriptures, its sexually perverted terrorist prophet, or its deceitful and demented god. When Western leaders become unified and resolute in their hostility to Islam's violent and ungodly beginnings, Muslims will flee the religion because they will be horrified by its endorsement of terrorism, mass murder, slave trading, plunder, kidnapping, and rape.

If Muslims & their apologists really want to cure "Islamophobia," here is an easy way. Focus their indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting on those acts.

Ecclesiastes 10:2 “The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.”

We are all born ignorant, but it takes a lot of work to keep looking the other way to remain stupid.

Islam is not a race - the racism rant is lame, used by the intellectually lazy to derail the debate.

If Obama is re elected, We'll be looking at 6-7 Dollars a gallon. He wants to bring it on par with what the Europeans are paying per gallon.
 Quoting: Tanarus


That probably wouldn't be as bad as it sounds *IF* and I can't emphasise this enough, *if* you guys where allowed access to more efficient engines.. my Ford gets 65 US MPG in the real world, I drive 90 miles to work.

I was comparing the small Ford Commercials vans (trucks) and the same vehicle (bodyshape wise) gets 22 US MPG in America compared to 37 US MPG here, quite a disparity, plus the same vehicle is $2000 cheaper here.

So I can not help but come to the conclusion that raising your fuel prices to the level of European ones without at least giving you access to more efficient engines has 2 purposes, screw you guys over at home, and screw you guys over at work.

And even *if* they do offer you access to more efficient engines it still screws over every existing vehicle owner in the country both at home and at work..

In the real world the only word I can attach to this madness of Obama does plan to go that route is it'll make America "Unworkable"
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16026864


The repukes scream bloody murder everytime the Democrats propose raising fuel efficiency standards.

1dunno1
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25263811


Probably because CAFE standards have virtually ZERO to do with actually increasing MPG by using any sort of rational or efficient engineering methods. All they do is decrease the emission limits which destroys engine effiency and then say, "You gotta make your fleet get better MPG" and now we've made you build a shittier engine by law, the only way left to do that is increase the horse power to weight ratio. That results in lightweight POS plastic bubble mobiles that Most Americans hate anyway...They are building 60 mpg engines in Europe...just like we used to...because they don't subscribe to the same retarded standards we do here...in fact, WE build many of those engines for them.

It also has resulted in more highway fatalities...but that never seems to bother the Libs as long as they think they saved a tree....

CAFE Standards have killed more people, little cute babies included, over the last 50 years than SMALL POX...and that is a FACT...so suck it Libtards...

Refining output has dropped a lot under this president due to him regulating several refineries out of business, we also cannot seem to build any new ones, because the ecotards go berserk and block every permit...we also have about 100+ different "blends" which is freakin retarded and also raises the cost...

Hey Quatar....don't you guys have oil?...maybe we will invade you and take it..."Price per barrel oil stoled from Quatar...$20 per barrel cause it only costs for shipping"...THAT might bring gas prices down to maybe $3.00 gallon...besides you'll like us invading anyway, we are really pretty cool and we'll bring some hot chicks over for USO shows and junk like that...free Ipods maybe even...it'll be great, you'll love us!

My ex-husband manages a fleet of work trucks. The 8 cylinder models get MUCH better gas mileage than the rest of the fleet.

When you make trucks smaller you have to have more of them to do the same work....which creates more money for government through licenses and insurance, etc. etc.

You cannot compare Britain to the US...one of our states is the size of your entire country.....we are 10,000 times bigger than you in land mass....little lorries don't cut it here.

2 United States citizens have won the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize in Chemistry.....

So fuck off you German idiot! BTW, I am German/Austrian but a citizen of the United States. My family came here over 100 years ago legally!!!!!!!! It is the illegal immigration that has brought this country down. We tried to help all of the third world denizens and it has backfired miserably.

Analogy: It is like allowing a person who is homeless to stay at your home for a while as they get their shit together, only to come home one day and find that they robbed your house.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18851138


I can get 55mpg on the highway in my diesel Passat.

Instead of bitching about gasoline prices, why not be proactive and do something YOU can control, such as what we did: bought a Prius and a Passat. Combined avg. mpg of 46. Every day.
