    I do remember a few years ago when Ted Kennedy was all fired up about wind power. loved the idea was all for it, until he learned that a wind mill farm was planned to be in HIS area, then all of the sudden, it was boo hiss, down with wind power. typical!

    qwerty, I heard they cut back funding for the ferry system. Environmental activists & leaders claim too much these days. I don't mind seeing progress made to save energy but what I do mind is seeing a corrupt government spending our money on themselves & BS wasteful liberal programs. The $1.2 Trillion Obonga borrowed was intended to help our economy (businesses/banks/individuals etc.). I believe funding for wind power & other ways to conserve energy was included in the last two bills passed but I doubt we see any of that money used as it was intended. Makes you wonder what our corrupt government does with our money. Heck, just look at what they're doing with our social security monies. For Real Results & Real Change, Vote Conservative Republican next go around. I nthe meantime, keep me posted regarding the wind mills.

    At one time I heard that "they" were going to try wind power out in the pamilco sound, along with hydropower a few miles in the atlantic, anyone heard anything else?

    Darren, Jimbo, you're right. The environmentalists in congress including certain democratic governors are all sticking together in their eco dilemma which is preventing us to tap in our own natural resources. Certain democratic congress members are just going with the flow trying not to make waves and jeopardize their seats so they can run for office again. So they sell out our country. April 2008 the US Geological Service found the largest discovery of oil located in 2/3rds of North Dakota. Largest since Alaska's Prodhoe Bay 56 yrs ago! 500 Billion barrels of sweet light oil that would eliminate our dependence on foreign oil for 41 years. Why can't we drill there? They figured the cost for us would be $16 PER BARREL!!! What in da!!! No matter what many critics think about Sarah Palin, I know she has balanced Alaska's budget and kept them out of the red and would allow us, with a republican majority in congress, to drill in ND asap. We need more refineries as well. Vote to DRILL NOW!!!

    Qwerty is right... idk where the heck you got that pricing from Crummycat! I'm old enough to remember gas prices in 1980 and boy are you way off. In fact, it was that time frame when we were all horrified because gas prices went over $1.00 a gallon - FOR THE FIRST TIME. Good lord, if it had been $3.46 I think my mother would have sold the car and walked. lol Not even Shell and Union 76 were charging that rate.

    It's because of the crime in Greenville. The gas stations are loosing business because everyone is afraid to use them at night. People will drive out of their way to go someplace safe. Of course you can blame it on Bush like Obama does.

    Why is the gas prices in Greenville so much higher than other towns. Goldsboro, Stokes, New Bern, and even Raleigh is less. Just filled up in Raleigh at 2.68 over the weekend. What's not up? My paycheck.

    This is all Bush's fault. All his fault. Ask obama.
