They want to crucify us for the prisoner treatment but you don't here any more about the contractors (who weren't fighting the war) that were KILLED and drug though the streets. tap tap tap ya know.

yep regular unleaded in Tulsa today is 1.88/gal. Premium is 1.99

BUT diesel is 1.51. With the walmart card that's 1.48. Glad I bought the 'stoke.

Its sick, I won't be able to do much runnin' at these prices.

biodiesel has a long way to go. first it has to be approved as fuel. there is no way i'd do it in a 40k truck.

The price of fuel in general has changed a lot of boaters enjoyment activity's tremendously.It has sent a lot of companies out of business a well. Is the steam engine coming back?

mopower, I hope your statement is ironic,
I don't want to start a riot here, but you can not blame us here in europe for the increased gasprices.
That $5 per gallon is because of our f***ng democrat government steeling 75% in taxes.
I'm a hard working man who is dedicated to powerboating, not that back slick gold chain guy.

Uhh..... the oil companies back pocket?........ I can remember gas being about 1.25 at the highest in 1990... now it's 2.27 per gallon here.... and yet crude is the same... I know where some of the price hike went here.... added taxes from the riots and earthquake... but they were supposed to be rolled back after the repairs.... sorry... we need the money in the general budget to educate all the illegal children that ran across the border with their illegal parents... and more money to give the county hospitals because the illegal immigrants demand their "rights" to health care even if they don't have the ability to pay.... I'm getting fed up with the "rights" of every a$$hole that happens to land here in California with his hat in his hand......
