$0.69 in 1999 Atlanta?!? No way..Ive lived in and worked all around GA, all my life and it hasnt been under$0.80 since 1991. Unless your getting some of that Walmart gas at member discount...that seems way way way too low for that time.

perhaps with the petrol (take note of all the oil pumps america and the pacific including Australia & New Zealand have) but notice that you have shit everything else. Shit history. Shit people. Shit morals. Don't be proud of the petrol-guzzling. Perhaps you could stop using so much and give some to pathelic lil England?

proud? what the hell gave you that idea?

Wow, considering how angry and rude your response was, you tell me who's "shit". I'm from a country with only 25 million people spread out over the 2nd largest area of any nation on the planet (logistically, this is not easy and efficiency is nearly impossible). We're just trying to survive here, have you ever even been to Canada?

Like everyone (canada included), you think you understand other countries but until you actually live there for a while, you might consider keeping an open mind. Making an ass out of yourself by judging things you only know from tv, if that much, doesn't help you.

How did the discussion get to this anyway? Sorry for ranting, all I was trying to say was how lucky we are here to have affordable fuel, I didn't expect an ideological attack.

though, the prices you show are nowhere near what I've seen (in my life time anyway) where I live, your point is basically what I said in the last sentence of my previous post.

Probably be good if it continues this way, or even increases. Not that it would happen too terribly soon, but I'd love fot the government to start looking at alternative fuel resources like hydrogen and more hybrid vehicles. Less dependanct on foreign oil would be a nice result, of course. We would continue to purchase foreign oil or use our domestic stock for the products that require a petroleum base, but use alternative fuels for our vehicles. More widespread public transportation like electric trains and propane-fueled shuttle buses and the like would hlp tremendously.

I thnk with many Americans, laziness is definitely a factor. (Duh....what, 65% of us are overweight?) I post on a forum for Subaru drivers and a guy was on there one day asking advice about oil change intervals needing to be increased because he only drives 2 miles to and from school each day and he knows that's rough on the car so he should probably change the oil more frequently. I was thinking, "Dude! Would walking 2 miles to and from school each morning KILL you? If time is an issue, perhaps a bike? In a congested area with lots of cars, a bike might even be faster. Plus you don't have to worry about finding a parking place." Lazy bastard ...

i think the highest price in the UK at the moment is £1.60 a litre.
Thats $2.83 a litre or$10.69 a gallon

I Pay £0.90 ($1.59) a litre or$6 a Gallon.

Fortunatly i ride a SV650S Motorbike and riding conservativly (3k Rev's) get about 150 miles out of my 1 gallon fuel tank before the fuel warning light on my bike comes up, i probably get another 20 miles out of that before i'm on my reserve tank then 20 miles on reserve so about 190 miles to the gallon.

HERES THE REAL SOLUTION:

instead of "NOT BUYING GAS" this or that day, which never works, i propose this solution:

Everyone BOYCOTT EXXON AND MOBIL GAS STATIONS.
BUY YOUR GAS FROM ANOTHER PLACE, such as CIRCLE K or Chevron
(I reccomend Chevron, they've got Techron which helps the environment a little)

this would make the changes you all want.
the 'dont buy gas today' plan NEVER works, it has been done a million times in the past year.

im telling you, this Proposal will work, more likely than anything else!
firstly, you will not have to STOP buying gas or anything. everyone will still be able to commute, and lastly, the Oil Theives ( Big Dogs, the Oil Giants ) will choke on their own spit. its what they deserve.
and i think using Techron will also help the environment, even if its just a little, every little bit counts.

so, if u want to show them they can't juke us around and inflate gas prices, then give THIS NEW PLAN a try, you really dont have anything to lose.

Boycott Exxon and Mobil Gas Stations, and go Elsewhere for gas.

have a nice day !
