GAS WAR Hey guys this will work!!

Quote:
GAS WAR - an idea that WILL work

This was originally sent by a retired Coca Cola
executive It came from one of his engineer buddies
who retired from Halliburton. It's worth your
consideration.

Join the resistance!!!! I hear we are going to hit
close to $ 4.00 a gallon by next summer and it might
go higher!! Want gasoline prices to come down? We
need to take some intelligent, united action.

Well, I wouldnt be very surprised to see $4.00/gallon gas this summer either...

I thought I'd share this with you... On a recent trip to Ireland I read a local news paper that said the national average for gas was 1.50 Euros per liter, that equates to nearly $7.50 per gallon. The article went on to say they are expecting to see gas as high as 5 Euros per liter, or about $24 per gallon by 2010.

London was running right around $2.00 per liter.

Something else to think about...The average American uses nearly double the amount of oil the average Japanese person uses each year...

Well...Here in Canada, we are already paying $1.10/LITRE which equates to over $4/gallon. Consisdering the fact that Canada is the US's largest supplier of oil, no, it's not Saudi Arabia.......you would think that we would be getting it at least a little cheaper than you guys.......But, Noooooooooooooooooooo such luck there. I blame our government.....Bunch of spinless (*^^%&**............................

Part of the reason we use so much oil in America is because public transportation isn't available in most areas, and if it is, its really not practical. ONly very big cities have good mass transit (NYC, Chicago, DC... atlanta's "Marta" sucks despite how large the city is). Also, due to zoning laws, many of us have a lengthy commute to get to our workplace.

Japan has 1/3 of our population on 1/25th of our land mass... and due to the topography of the landscape, only about 1/3 of that is useful for living. Therefore japanese population densities are higher (probably the highest in the world) so mass transit is useful and effective.

America is simply too large to install mass transit in most areas. Our challenge will be lowering our energy usage with more creative methods. Driving a more efficient car, living closer to work or carpooling are all options. I've already done two out of three of these since gas prices have gone up. Everybody has a financial threshold where they will be comfortable paying a certain gas price at a certain fuel economy. Mine has long since passed and I drive probably the most fuel efficient non-hybrid car on the road (5-spd civic). Laugh now, but I'm saving over 120 dollars a month by not drivng my old jeep cherokee!

Killer's got the right idea, just use less to bring the prices down. I moved 5 miles from work so I don't have to buy gas all the time. There is a big box store only a mile out of the way on the way to work, so I can just stop on the way and save trips that way.

I did this last summer when the prices spiked and only filled up every 4-5 weeks until the prices subsided.

Call me a weirdo, but my girlfriend & I actually looking at getting nice bicycles to bike everywhere in town here when we go to get ice cream or eat at a nice restaurant. Most of those trips are within a couple of miles and to not have to waste gas on those little trips would be nice.

Killer, the mass transit down here in Columbus sucks too. We only have COTA, which is the bus line. Because of car problems a friend of mine had to take the bus to/from work everyday. What is normally a 20 min drive for him turned into a 1.5hr trek. So he had to waste 3 hours of his day instead of 40 mins.....and our government wonders why no one takes mass transit anywhere.

Gas War

I think that gas prices suck but there isn't a damn thing I can do about it so I take public transportation the schedule works for me and it is within walking distance from my home.
I think we are stuck with high prices getting every one to do something at the same time to the big oil companies might work if we had mass advertisement maybe a radio and tv campaign but until then I guess we just have to but the bullet and pass the vaseline...

The price for the high cost of gasoline is a supply and demand issue, but the bean-heads at Wall street are just as much to blame. The world is actually running out of cheap accessible oil, supply and demand. I love my fossil fuel burners, but things need to change, alternative fuel sources need to be developed. Conservation and attitudes need to change, if not the US, Canada, Europe will all be slaves to oil.

If I'm elected president everyone who owns a hotrod or any form there of will be granted fossil fuels !

Gas prices will be granted for the time period of that vehicle!

Everyone else will be forced to take mass transit or drive electric cars to pay for the hot rodders addiction.


LONG LIVE THE HOT RODDER!

Just need to vent.

While everyone likes to chastise SUV's and trucks as being gas wasters and lack of public transportation as culprits, I made an observation this morning as I'm driving my 3.1 L V6 truck. I was doing 5-10 over the posted limit and was blown in the weeds by everyone doing 20-30+ over the posted speed limit, they were drag racing style starts at every light, zig-zagging back and forth in front of me until slamming on their brakes at the next light as I rolled up beside them, we never got seperated, they just got there long before I did. No one was going anywhere. Some were doing close to 80 in a 45 trying to get in front of the next guy, it was insane. IT'S RUSH HOUR! NOT the NASCAR HOUR!

So until drivers get more fuel conscious with their driving habits, they have no reason to complain about gas prices as they would conserve much by driving better.
Oh, and 95% of these were cars, Honda's, BMW's, Toyota's, so don't say it's all SUV's and trucks fault for wasting fuel. Most of us that drive them do so easier because of the milage. I bet I got more MPG than any of those cars this morning. And this happens every single day all over the country.

Ahhh, feeling better now. Just needed to vent.
