But they can be entertaining to read.

Topics of this nature simply are not easy black and white, yes or no, issues - far too wide an audience in terms of personal goals, wealth and viewpoints - anyone who has spent much time here has seen it time and time again - and TOO MUCH control tends - in my view - to excessively water down the wider scope, the flavor, and VALUE of the wider subject material and viewpoints involved...

Gary, I think that is very well put, I am fairly new here but the level of moderation is really quite restrained. Really an indication of the desire for the owners and those who keep things going here to encourage a spirited and healthy exchange of information and viewpoints.

Thanks for the clarification,

Will I stop RV'ing if/when gas reaches $5 a gallon?

I certainly hope not. For cry'in out loud I just got started here!
I may have to stretch my RV'ing dollars, but I will keep rolling, even if I have to get out and push

Now that is real interesting:
I guess they haven't figured how to collect the road tax that the gov. puts on fuel, Give them time (the gov.) they will figure a way.

If gas reaches $5.00 per gallon, which will be criminal in my opinion, I guess we will be planning trips closer to home. That does not mean we won't take a longer trip for vacation if the needs arise.

And, BTW, there were still plenty of Canadians in Florida last March when the wife and I were down there on vacation from Massachusetts.

Huh? Which country?

This started out as a question 'If gas is $5.00 a gallon what will you do?'. Well, if you've been to Orlando lately there are a couple of [moderator edit] dealers already charging OVER $5.00 per gallon. The true value of gas is measured by how badly you need (or want) it.
When gas was $2.50 a gallon and oil was $70.00 a barrel, the oil companies were making BILLIONS of dollars. Now oil is up 40% but gas prices are up 65%, so I guess the oil companies are making even more money. I don't like government regulation of anything, but rather than release our strategic oil reserves to bring prices down ( and I don't think it will), let's put a little 'control' on oil companies and their profits. They were doing just fine making BILLIONS, do they really need more?

I guess this is where we draw the line for democracy.
Free trade and less government on one side of the fence, More government, tighter restrictions and more regulations on the other.
There is no in between.

Price controls really worked out well in the 1970s, didn't they?

Too late for this thread question. Gas is already at $5.00/gallon.

Maybe you should ask: "If Gas reaches $10.00/are you done?"

You guys are beating a dead horse. Congressional hearings yesterday are clarifying what we already know. If the US doesn't do something BIG and something NOW, the future looks bleak. There is no more time, there is no more money. The population is spent out.

There was a mention about a treaty we have with Taiwan. The US promises to protect Taiwan against invaders (i.e. China).

We would have to borrow money from China to defend Taiwan against China. Something seems wrong with that picture.

The US has no plans to do anything with the oil and energy crisis even though it's a matter of the highest national security.
