Default $4.00 fuel?

When do you think we'll break 4 bucks for a gallon of petrol? I'm guessin less than two weeks for diesel, and by thanksgiving for gas. Your guess?

Maybe if I'm think positively... it will never happen. So... never. Realistically? I give it a month and a half at most.

If we see $4 this year someone is bending us over more than usual, because IIRC gas prices (by the barrel) have gone done, or that'* what I heard anyway. But our prices at the pump are going up.

If we saw $4.00 I'd say it wouldn't be until next summer.

Unless after Bush is out of office the next President does something to lower gas prices...

wishful thinking.....

I haven't really looked in the news, but from what all the older people around the town are saying (who has like unlimited gossip access), there'* some kind of thing related to the war in Iraq that'* going to like double or triple cost of oil.

Yeah... I'm ready for it to end for reasons like that lol. I don't know what changed... but something did. I guess when/if I get bored, I'll check out Google news.

Yeah, whatever is happening in Iraq is making certain people rich while we get poorer.

june 23rd, 2008 it will hit $4 average

by 2009 it will be $5 a gallon...enjoy the supercheap gas we get right now

by 2015 few on here will be driving a bonneville anymore since they cannot afford the gas for it.

20 years from now the middle class and lower will not be driving gasoline powered cars at all.
