Our new president is pushing for higher gas taxes.Welcome to the wonderful world of supply and demand... and OPEC, and a myriad assortment of other influencing authorities.
Its funny really, when you think about it, 10 months ago the contract price on WTI was in negative territory because it was literally impossible to purchase storage and here we are today back to normal.
If it makes you feel any better.... gas was 2.23 a gallon (here in British Columbia) at its lowest, sure its sold in liters but I did the conversion for my new American friends, that was in april/may of last year and today as i live and breathe it is 5.44 so believe me it could be a lot worse.
See and thats ok, because everyone, even you highup, is entitled to their opinion..... even if it is wrongJust remember that what we speak is just a viewpoint. Viewpoints don't change friendships. If you're wrong all the time, I will just have to deal with it.
No public transportation, can't ride a bike for health reasons. Drive a car that gets 35 mpg.I watched an interview on OPB (PBS) with the head of Shell oil and he made a very good point. Everybody bitches about the price of gas but the real question is what are YOU doing to reduce your dependence on oil? Do you ride a bike or take public transportation (not really an option for non city folk). Maybe you purchase a fuel efficient vehicle. Or did you go out and buy another gas guzzling V8 truck because you think it looks cool but you never actually haul anything but once a year if that.
