Is $5 Gas Making a Comeback?
Prices are edging toward $5 per gallon in parts of California, and the national average has been on the rise since July 1.
The US walks a fine line as do the politicians. I can understand the drilling increase with trying to get rid of coal all in the same breath. Unfortunately we are slaves to our cars and trucks and not in our life time will this change. I say regulate the spot market and get rid of the speculators there causing all this there is actually plenty of oil in the world. Especially now with China and Europe on a down swing.
I need my pick up for what we do its unfortunate its not more fuel efficient. There getting better and more aluminum will be used in the future. I do agree with getting off the oil gravy train...
"The goal should be ELIMINATING our dependency on foreign oil, not expanding it."
Good luck with that one, both parties Republican and Democratic have been pushing to expand oil not just one party. Remember, Bush went to war to secure the oil wells in the middle east and Obama would do the same. I would like to see the US NOT become dependent on oil but that's not going to happen as long as the oil companies and auto companies run the show.
