Default Here comes the gas!

There goes the money! Once again gas prices are getting higher! $2.65 a gallon exactly one week ago and $2.95 a gallon today? 30 cents more a gallon in one week WTF? Glad I filled my 40 gallon tank last week for my trip Sunday...I saved $12! But if it keeps going up 30 cents a week I dont see any trips in our future!

Was inching up around .07 a day 3rd and last week of May. Sitting steady around $2.79 in Sylvan Lake, closer to $2.85 and up along M-59 between downtown Pontiac and Telegraph.

Easily costing me $10 more to fill up the past month or so.

The rising gas prices are definitely another byproduct of Obama being in office. OPEC and the oil companies are aware that the US under Obama still has no practical energy policy, with no change in sight, so they can have their way with us once again. BHO's vision of windmills and solar panels work to the oil people's advantage.
Add to it the fact that low gas prices kill the sales of the Smart cars and hybrids that BHO, the Libs and their environmentalist pals love so much. When gas was $4.00+ last year, hydrids and Smart cars were selling. But when gas came down to the $2.00 range, people fell in love with their SUV's again, and the Feds/Environmentalists went nuts.

Think about it- nothing in the news about increased demand lately, no supply issues, no refinery/extraction problems, no natural disasters or emergencies. None of the things that they usually blame for the sharp increases in prices are happening. It's been pretty quiet in the news media about the rise in prices and the reasons why.

Obama... the gift that keeps on giving.

High gas prices are the least of our worries.

The value of the dollar is in decline, everything is going to go up.

Fuel prices are a contributing factor for everything going up as it will cost more to transport merchandise and food.

Hopefully scrap prices goes through the roof again also because I will probably have to scrap my Suburban to buy a 1994 GEO Metro!

Transportation, fuel and food prices go up because the dollar is worthless.

SMART cars were selling like hotcakes and still are. I believe there is still a bit of a waiting list to get them.
