I can't believe it.

Gas prices out here are already $2.73 a gallon. I suppose I knew it was going to happen, but son-of-a-bitch it's not even summer yet! I'm sure this year we'll hit well over the $3 mark for the low octane fuels. This is really starting to chap my a$$.

Well, I don't think so with two big-oil men in the white house. But something does need to be done.

Easy there, killer. It's still winter. During winter we bitch about cold, snowfall, or freakishly warm weather. Our winter blues become forum . You may begin ranting about gas prices after Easter or April 1st- which ever is sooner. The pre-winter blues usually begins just before Halloween.

Butt... I don't have snow... or cold... and it's always freakishly warm here. I've got not much else to bitch about. Okay... how about those lowrider shorts and pants on fat chicks?

What exactly would you like a politician to do?

Seriously, its a mentality thing. Sure, kinda got fucked when someone mentioned the large gov't purchases of oil that would be made, but prices are set by traders & demand not politicians.


ORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR we can do what our other favorite says.

Take one companies profits from them.

We don't want to beat the gas prices horse to death too early. Save some discussion for later, especially during peak vacation season.

I guess I should have noted that this is the price of gas on the base. We don't pay taxes on our fuel, the Community Services Directorate pays them. So yea, we're a little cheaper than out in town. I think I'm headed to Palm Springs this morning, I'll be sure to fill up on base before I leave.
