But mines paid off

Okay back on topic:

I remember when I got my license in 1991 gas price for regular was 95 to 99 cents. 2002 was not bad at all at $1.50 those prices will never come back

Hard to say....Nearly everyone'* income will be affected by higher gas/diesel/oil costs.

High Gas/Diesel = Higher Shipping Costs, Business'* must lose profit or raise prices

High Gas/Diesel = Higher Food Costs, Less income to spend money on other things

High Gas/Diesel = Lower Standard of Living for everyone

High Gas/Diesel/Oil Costs = Modern Industrialized Economic systems go down the drain, people lose their jobs and have no income.

That'* not the end game at all. There'* no reason anyone working a half decent job can't afford gas. If they can't, they need to cut spending in other places or change their driving habits/situation..
