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.

For various reasons, yes we do raise hell. Real Americans don't like someone telling us what type of car to drive or being taxed more simply because we drive a car that Washington classifies as a "gas guzzler" (hint: we already pay more at the pump for driving the bigger cars). America has billions of barrels of oil that we could use if not for the libtard tree huggers. But one day when the supply trucks stop and people start starving and society crumbles, the tree huggers will be the first ones to get their mouths mashed cause we will be coming after the oil whether they like it or not.
