I never had to wait in line. Most stations had a "commercial" pump with a 25 gallon minimum. I had a pickup with two 20 gallon gas tanks. I siphoned gas from the truck to keep the car gassed up (I was lucky and could run the hose from one tank to the other since the truck tanks were higher than the car tanks) and gassed up the truck when the second tank was down halfway. There was never a line at the commercial pumps as long as I hit them after 6-7 PM.

Yup, Spain found out about green energy the hard way. History has a habit of being repeated.

I have been in and around the financial business all my life. I never knew, until the 2008 election, just how powerful "Wall Street" is. I don't know how to say this without incurring the wrath (white*out actually) of the Moderators; it is impossible to have this discussion without "getting political" about it? [moderator edit] At some point any commodity in any Nation can become a "National Security Issue" requiring Federal intervention? Imagine if food prices went up at this rate or if fresh water supplies started being restricted; trust me, it would become political. The notion of some new energy source coming along any day soon to replace fossil fuels is ludicrous. For the time being this is what you've got and, if there's any group outside of truckers who can appreciate it, that would be us? This kind of "shock" to an already fragile economy (again, a bouyant one according to MSNBC) can set it back on its heels and it is only the Politicians, elected by you folks, who can step in and mitigate the situation. The oil companies are in it for profit as are the speculators, the refiners, the delivery guys (think Warren Buffet on that one), and the retailers. How can this not be political I ask?
