Preminum was at $2.99.9 in Houston on 4-9-2006. Diesel was less than regular.

Gas was at $2.03 about 5 weeks ago. Then someone said that since the hurricans kept the refiners from doing their fall maintenance. So now to get the price to go back up some that didn't do their shutdowns, will do them in the spring. So in the last month and a half it goes up 10-20 cents one day and then goes down 5-10 a few days later for a net gain of 5-10 that week. This week it was at 2.69 -2.79.
Last year when they started to say that gas was going to be 3.00+ by summer we changed our plans from going to Vermont and New Hampshire on our big trip to just PA. Here we go again 2006. I thought good maybe it will go under $2.00 finally. BUT NO .....The Oil and Refinery CEO's needed to buy more vacation homes. They already have 5-10 around the world. I think there is a race to see who can have 20 multi-million homes. So it's back to PA. again this year. I'm glad I don't have a big rig. I just don't know how some people make it that were living paycheck to paycheck with the high engery prices the last 18 months. Its called CEO "GREED"...period.

With gas prices continuing to spiral out of control, $2.79 for regular today, my employer moved the main office about 15 miles to the east adding an additional 30 miles to most peoples daily commute. That translates to around an additional $3000 a year to get to work based on last years 48 cents a mile to operate a passenger vehicle. It will jump to $4000 plus if gas keeps going up like it is. Already many of our part time and lower income employees have had to quit as they can't afford to get to work. Many are carpooling to defray this additional expence but managers and supervisors are complaining because people can't afford to stay late at a moments notice, miss their carpool and then have to take a taxi home. These people instead of getting an offer of assistance in finding an alternative way to get home are being threatened with termination.

To' All re; Fuel price gouging??

Took a short drive yesterday in northwestern Mass. and southern New Hampshire.

Regular gas was $2.51 to $2.79 per gallon. diesel from $2.55 to to $2.89 per gallon. I think these were the highest prices I've seen.

I have a feeling, that unless something drastic and different is done, not war!!, the costs are going to increase.

Politically, and this could be a touchy subject to some, but think about it before re-acting.

The time for the Party system we now have, Doesn't work, we don't need parties, just the best candidate for each office who pledges to do the VOTERS work and work for changes where needed. Along with this WE VOTERS should insist that term limits be set for every office with 8 years being the maximum.

The President and Vice President should be elected for 8 years, thereby eliminating re-election campaigns after first 4 years which should mean more attention to Voters needs. The Vice President, who has served 8 years in training, BECOMES PRESIDENT after the 8th year.

The power to re-call any politician not working in all the voters best interest will be voted out of office, they've done it in California.
If the in- officem politician isn't doing the job he/ she was elected to do . THE VOTERS can elect his/her replacement.

Radical??? Something has to be done..

Hey Guys,, It's time for us, men, to let go and get more WOMEN elected into office.. When you look at our history, we,men, have'nt done such a great job. Besides, women are stronger, emotionally, than we are and will be more effective overall.

Physical strength, which had to be in the past, determined leaders, but we don't have to beat our food sources over the head anymore, That's how MAN , became the LEADER, because he got the food. No longer that way.

We can moan and groan about things, but nothing will change unless EVERYBODY who is eligible to register to vote, does so and activly seeks out and VOTES for the BEST candidate for each office.


IT COULD WORK !! What we have now is'nt.

Thanks === Aime===== AJBJRVERS =====
