    Actually the high price of gas right now has more to do with the strike in Venezuela. The Iraq issue is what the liberal press whats to brainwash you with. For good info on what's up and what to expect with the oil & gas industry, go here:

    BTW: Russia has LOTS of oil!!

    I have to run 93/super in my car. It's a pontiac grand prix GTP. I can once in a while get away with 89 but the car likes the 93 much better. And it already has Mobil 1 in's my commuter car and on a good tank I can get 27MPG so it's not doing too bad all things considered. The truck gets the 87 octane and doesn't get driven all that much!

    Price of Gas: $1.50 gallon US average reg. unleaded
    You Think A Gallon Of Gas Is Expensive?

    Makes one think, and puts things in perspective.

    Diet Snapple 16 oz $1.29 . $10.32 per gallon
    Lipton Ice Tea 16 oz $1.19. $9.52 per gallon
    Gatorade 20 oz $1.59. $10.17 per gallon
    Ocean Spray 16 oz $1.25. $10 .00 per gallon
    Brake Fluid 12 oz $3.15. $33.60 per gallon
    Vick's Nyquil 6 oz $8.35. $178.13 per gallon
    Pepto Bismol 4 oz $3.85. $123.20 per gallon
    Whiteout 7 oz $1.37. $25.42 per gallon
    Scope 1.5 oz $0.99. $84.48 per gallon

    And this is the REAL KICKER......

    Evian water 9 oz for $1.49. $21.19 per gallon

    $21.19 FOR WATER! ....And the buyers don't even know
    the source. So, the next time you're at the pump, be glad your car doesn't run on water, Scope, or Whiteout, or Heaven
    forbid, PEPTO BISMOL or NYQUIL!!!! Just a little humor to help ease the pain of your next trip to the pump...........!

    VERY funny risktaker..I sometimes try to justify it with that reasoning also.
    Venezuela is supposed to be the reason why we are unduring the currrent prices but in my memory gas has NEVER been under $2.80 gal here Local govt taxes account for approx 63pct of the retail price and our last gas hike about 3 weeks ago has the price today at ..get this........

    $5.98 gal

    I certainly would trade some of those $1.75 gals anytime !..Sure it's all relative ..I feel your suffering but I don't know how I'm going to be able to run the 502 this summer

    Make sure you get the optional rear window defroster, it will keep your hands warm as you push.
