    Gas Prices Headed Higher?

    Interesting news article.

    http://www.reuters.com/article/us-gl...KBN1D603A?il=0

    Mitsubishi’s strategy of focusing on efficiency might pay off.

    I just love it when Gov'ts get together and and collectively rape us..
    Gas is $1.35/L ($5.40/US gal) here already. Prices jumped $0.16/L in two days.
    Probably looking at $1.50/L by Christmas.
    Will weld for beer.

    Completely agree. The government makes many times what the oil companies make on every gallon of gas sold...then politicians have the temerity to complain about how much the oil companies are making and how horribly unfair it is!

    I'd say something about people driving those 6-wheeled gas (or diesel) hogs get what they deserve for being so short sighted, but > 100 per barrel will not only drive up pump prices, but kill the entire boom we've been seeing for so many years, tax cuts or no. All that money earned in the stock market - goodbye for now.

    @Fummins, sorry if I offended you. I've gotten the 'rolling coal' treatment while riding my bike and didn't appreciate it, but that's no reason to condemn all duelly drivers.

    I was kidding, I don't have feelings! I hate kids/slow adults who do stupid stuff like rolling coal. I've had it done to me as well. I'll admit I've done it once or 100 times or so if I get bumper humpers that won't back off, but I'm sure there's a few others who might have done the same thing if given the chance? But it's too expensive to be a dink like that nowadays and I've outgrown most of my road rage a while ago.
