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"

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

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25263811

On this, the sad part is that America is being left behind, not that it is any consolation for us as we pay more for our fuel..

My fear, (Most of my family are Americans) is that you'll end up having to play a game of catch up that'll cost America far more, most nations are doing the same in other arenas..

Screwed and Screwed... which I am sure is a global feeling right now.. for me it a sense of failing infrastructure and the feeling we falling backwards rather than moving forwards.

Something does have to give, and to be honest, given the number of social, political, economic and militaristic fires burning throughout the world I have no idea what the might be, or entail for us all, but while I try to be hopeful my gut says it won't be good.
