Angry Gas Prices Ii

Well just got the news from my sources and a couple of hours too late...... By now all you guys have probably seen it on the national news on TV.
Gas is going to $4.50 /gal. by this summer !!!
High test will go to $4.65 to $ 4.75 /gal.
Marine gas will probably go to $5.10 .....
Marine high test probably $5.35 /gal

The national news said it will be $5.00 + /gal. by 2012 but Im sure it wont take that long........You know how these greedy stock market guys are!!!!! Time to buy gas stocks !!!

More of the same B.S.







Jim

Or the saudi"s are going to take less for their oil since the dollar is weaker by the day. Oh yeah, the maneuvers by the EPA with respect to Carbon emissions probably aren't going to help either.

"Hope and Change" I sure "hope" when this redistribution thing is over I still have some "Change" left in my Pocket.. LOL

This country cant take gas prices that high. If it goes that high we will be in a depression again. To many people hangin on by a string.

Time to start looking into hybrid or solar boats... sorry, I cant do blow boats!



And we thought the boat market was already soft, imagine what this will/would do to the HP boat market in this economy?!?!?

When gas did this a few years ago, I went out and got a new toyota yaris to add to the stable. All my friends laughed about it til they saw it gets 40-45mpg and only cost $11,800 out the door If gas goes up again, just buy a car that gets good enough mileage that you spend the same amount on gas each week. As for boats, gotta pay to play

It was a X guy from Shell that said all this. He has his own selfish motives for setting off panic like he is trying. He is invested in a company that is exporing alternative fuels..... If in fact it turns out that he is correct that as people above have said we are going to slide even deeper into a reccesion

SS930 has it pretty much on the money: The HP market boat is going to collapse ! ,then the marinas, gas docks, mechanic business. All of the rest of the boat companies will go under and from there on it will be like a bunch of dominos hitting the table...... Could have a total collapse of the economy !!!
Just because some greedy M.F. on Wall street wants to turn a fast buck...
