I don't want to even post the price of gas and diesel here in San Diego, trust me its off the charts. As consumers we have to start facing the facts. Just like insurance companies, the Oil companies and our own (polititical only) leadership are not our "friends" and they do not want cheap fuel in America. First, if you were a stock company and your shareholders (mutual funds) were screamong for more earnings and you had almost no competition would you give back your exorbidant profits, hell no! If you were an elected politico who makes his money and future by supporting your biggest tax generator and political contributor would you control their profits. Hell no! People , wake up and smell the roses, the only way we are ever going to control oil companies and the "graveytrain, line my pocket, both party political bullsh**ters" is to realize that the best form of control is to not give them the money in the first place! If we as consumers put enough pressure on the automobile industry and engine designers for vehicles that really get the obtainable milage and efficiency that we need to keep the price of gas within reason by the old "supply versus demand rule" of economics that will keep gas affordable, we will keep the giant profit and tax monsters in our control. We also need to make sure the americn farmer keeps control of biodiesel and its refining so the big oil boys don't get control of that industry. Remember, they are going to take todays rip-off profits and buy tommorrows technology so they can still keep us on our backs! Just make sure everytime you go to the polls and vote, that you try and vote for a "public servant" and not a party line political bullsh**ter whose never had a real job! Also remember that enviromentalists are a loud and powerful group of individuals who also suffer and whine when the price of fuel cripples our economy. Someones going to pay for an out of control, tax overfunded government and its wasteful spending and understand that SOMEONE IS YOU! Just remember that there are a lot of great individuals who love and cherish this country and where there's a will there is a way!
