#5 Betting the Dead Horse.
And with the newest printing of money without backing, QE3, it's never going to go back down. Your dollar is worth less and less in the commodity markets with these actions by the Fed-Treasury cabal.

#7 we pay nearly dollar for US gallon (3.8 ltr).
Once we vote out our current crop of idiots in Washington, dump our dependence on Mideast oil, use our own resources, oil prices will come down here too. The good thing about it AlHaan, you will probably be able to enjoy gasoline for less than a dollar/gal due to reduced demand in the UAE. However, the rest of your economy may have some problems.

#9 This was always his plan. Make fuel too expemsive and achieve two thimgs. First keep us hobbled by fuel costs and insure we become more dependant on govt aid, and second to drive us to his green energy cars, Volt. Both plans are failures. His admin fails to realize how America loves their cars. He would have been a hero if he would have opened two new refineries and then mandated 50 mpg on new cars within four years.
Detroit and the Japanese have had the technology for years. My honda CRX HF got 45 MPG in 1983. We need to get them on it and off these environmental nightmare battery cars...

#11 Simple solution - redefine the US gallon to include just 2 quarts, and halve the price of gas INSTANTLY. Obama's true believers will be gratified & won't know the difference.

#12 Methodology in play with the US Dollar for many years Anguper Hupomosing. It should work splendidly for gasoline.

#16 Remember when we got high gas prices are horrible news reports on a daily basis? When was that, back pre-2008? Yeah, that's right. Not sure what changed in 2008 but suddenly high gas prices are not news.

#17 I noticed that too, rjschwarz.
I'm sure I know the reason, but can't think of the word right now. It's on the tip of my tongue - starts with "d" . . . huh, just can't get it. It will come to me, I'm sure.
