    ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

    Go to your local library.

    Get the Modern Marvels episode that deals with gas.

    Then come back and tell me that the price is too high.

      Grote, I just do not get it. Gas is so relatively inexpensive. For what accomplishes in our daily life.

      I realize I am painting with a broad brush here; it seems to me that it is those that scream loudest about our "evil" dependence on oil are those screaming loudest about its rising cost.

        I'm screaming about the cost because I can't afford it. I'm pretty convinced gas in the LA area will soon be at $3. It jumped from $1.95 to $2.15 to $2.35 in a matter of about five days.

        Now, if I ever get a job, I probably won't worry about it as much.

          lazy,

          I stated in another post that we need to get serious about finding and utilizing other sources of fuel. Until then, I'm for opening the Alaskan north slope and the Pacific coast to drilling.

            Dev ... watch the episode. It did a good job explaining why it costs more around the country.

            1) Taxes.
            2) Additives.
            3) Surcharges for environmental issues.

              Oh, I understand all that stuff. I'm just complaining because I'm growing frustrated at the difficult time I'm having finding a job.

                I filled up yesterday at $1.75/gallon. I wish I would have filled up the day before when it was about 8¢ - 10¢ cheaper....

                      I don't see why there is a big conspiracy theory here... it's simple economics. Supply and Demand.

                      I won't draw out the charts, but if OPEC is cutting production (supply) and the demand remains the same, the price leader (in the STL area it's QT) can do whatever the heck they want and people will still buy.

                        Thank you John "F." Kerry and fellow Dems like Teddy K.
                        When you say to your neighbor, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night if that's alright with you," what you really mean is, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night."

                          They could gouge us for any amount, and most people would still pay.

                            Just watch it. It really shows the whole process. It's quite amazing.

                              Gas in the Bay Area is $2.12-$2.25/gallon now. Funny, there was a lot more complaining last time it got near this price.
