He has the worst ideas on the planet and the shittiest view on how to fix things IMO. He needs to go, and now wouldn't be soon enough.

I just topped off the rental here in MS at 2.99. If I knew I'd be sitting in an airport reading this thread, I would have snapped a pic!

Oh yes...refinery shortage, and if its not that it's something else bizarre like gas prices raising because Santa fell off his sleigh. Seriously I've had enough of all this bullshit. How is it that uncivilized countries that are much more difficult to get to have gas prices under a dollar and places like America that are easier to get to and have their OWN refineries are charging over $4 a gallon. The only reason is because its "summer" now, fustrates the crap outta me

Because camels don't run on gas and most American families have 12 vehicles.

Supply and Demand.

Time to put the XJ up and drive my truck again. It gets twice the mileage. Problem is, they both need gas.

I honestly give little to no fucks at this point.

It sucks don't get me wrong.

But I choose to drive vehicles that barely make it into the teens on the mpg scale.

If it were a real concern I'd have a fleet of econo boxes.
