    HippsieGypsie, my son just skimmed over this and BLAMES us!! Told me if we didn't buy those muscle cars back in the 1970s/early 1980s there would still be cheaper than now gas prices. He went on to say if GM, Ford, etc. built ONLY 4 cylinder cars ONLY back then there would be plenty of gas at reasonable rates. LIKE it is our faults that when we started driving gas prices were below $0.50 a gallon! Sheesh. I don't remember or not, but didn't we boycott when prices went from $0.47 a gallon to $1.00 a gallon?

    Thanks, Bill. Yea, you pay a higher state tax. I heard that when all is said and done we pay roughly $1.50 per gal for taxes. I know the owner of the BP in town pretty well. I'll pick his brain on this when in next.

    Wow, z3r101! You're a brave man for posting that! If she sees that, chances are there won't be any activity between you two!

    Ask your son if he can say OPEC?!! What year was it? 71 or 72? OPEC flooded the market for awhile where the price dropped down to around 15 cents a gallon, then held back supply until we were sitting in lines to get rationed gas! Yes, I said rationed gas! The price doubled within a year. It has been escalating ever since. I have special words for that special organization!

    There's no oil shortage. It's propaganda. They can't pump it out of the earth fast enough, so they claim. I think that's bunk too. They keep profit margins up to answer to themselves and investors. Gee! I wonder who has one of the best earnings report out of all the industries? I'll use your word here...Sheesh!

    HippsieGypsie, and WE both KNOW they have cars that can run like a normal gas engine if the Oil SYNDICATE allowed them too by using batteries. HEY!! Where's my George Jetson Air Car at?? They promised us them WAY back in the 1960s for crying out loud! LoL

    Today, in a few minutes, I will be traveling back to Ill-in-noise to visit my family. I can't wait to show them 8 and get their reactions.

    Like my signature says, going to and fro. 2-a-roo for now............
