    Why does one station 2 blocks from another one. the same company mind you, raise theirs and the other one doesn't. Bethal & Sawmill, $1.72 gallon, Reed & Henderson $1.89. go figure!

    I believe we are about to see the stick that breaks the camels back. Gas is approaching $4.00 a gallon and will probably go higher. This is affecting the bloodline of America---the working middle class, who carries most of this nations burdens(taxes, s.s. taxes, schools.. the argument that Europe has been paying high fuel prices doesn't hold water with the USA. Europe is made up of alot of smaller nations whose centers are a few large cities, and bikes, scooters, transit systems, have been in effect for years. America is a vast nation and you cannot run it like England, France, the Swiss, or any of the others. It won't work.What we have now is a product of narrow minded people who should have been thinking 3 decades ago how to start the USA on it's way of independence of foreign fuels. Instead , our car makers come out with Hummers, Suvs, and other fuel guzzlers.....;) ....:confused: .. yea, we are one smart people....THE CATKING !!!

    How about Canada?

    Their average price curretly is around 130 Canadia cents per liter.

    http://www.gasbuddy.com/GB_Price_List.aspx

    There are 3.785 liters to US gallons.

    http://www.onlineconversion.com/volume.htm

    So, 130 x 3.785 = 492.05 Canadian cents per gallon.

    492.05 Canadian cents = $4.89553 per gallon.

    I certainly do not know how much mass transit available in remte Canadia, but I would assume not much. I would also guess with the colder climatethey don't ride motor cycles half the year either. Speaking of which....have you ever been to London, or anywhere in England? The weather is awful for motorcycle rides. Sure there is the equivilant to our Cota bus, bt we allready have those.

    Once again, I'm Thankful to be living in the USA.

    People are just going to have to give up gas hogs, it's simple. Things change...then you adjust.

    I got it at GetGo for $2.09 yesterday and still spent $56.00. I think that it is time to start a revolution.

    Nah, I don't even see the reason to give up "gas hogs". If you can afford it, do it.

    I bet alot of people would find it funny here, that I drive about 40,000 miles a year, to make a slightly better then average wage. I feel the pain like any other "Joe", but things could be much, much worse.
