Is America going to wake up ever-about gas price controls? The solution is so simple but carrying it out is impossible because someone sleeps at the gas pumps.
Lower the stupid prices, give us confidence to spread the money around, and cut this G-R-E-E-D. Get rid of speculators. Lower prices, but then you cannot fix stupid as they say.

When CEO's of oil companies are get million dollar bonuses, to me that is just greed.

I did pay $3.66 a gallon for diesel Monday. But then I remember when it was less than $2 a gallon and wish it were back to that pricing structure. Oh well!

I wonder how the Bank of America share holders felt when they (the shareholders) were loosing their pants while the BofA CEO was getting a hefty bonus. I for one felt very good with my dividend from ExxonMobil and thanked the CEO and board for making prudent business decisions even with the government trying to foil them at every turn. And they didn't need a handout to do it either. I love capitalizism. BTW...we bought 2, .5 liter bottles of water for $6.00 and we complain about $4.00 fuel, hmmmm.

If gas dropped back to 1.90 gal you would see everything turn around...housing, jobs and the market....just my .02.
I've been saying this since the 2008 recession, but nobody believes me! High fuel costs impact everything. If a business owner has to choose between putting gas in his trucks or hiring additional help, guess who loses? And I don't think this has anything at all to do with supply and demand. Its sheer greed, plain and simple.

Elkhartjim, all I can say is if you gave six bucks for two 1/2 liter bottles of water, they must have had something good mixed in with the water, ( JD maybe?) or......you were mighty thirsty. I buy a case of thirty at Costco for under 5 dollars.
