    NO ONE IS LISTENING; We should spend more money researching to make cars run offen kerosene. .. it is much cheaper than gas and probably safer too. We should demand that they do more research. I know it could work, like i said it worked for our lawn mower back in the 1930's.

    I would like to ask all " ? ". Do you all Americans like President Obama's new gas prices for you and your family? Goggle the US gas charts , when Ex President G.W Bush left office his last month gas prices to we all Americans was ? Yes only $.1.61 a gallon of gas at the retail pump. Americans why do you welcome to Obamas inflation of your dollar. Gas was cheap under Ex President Bush. Now you have Obamas price at the gas pump. Their goes your own $$$$$ money people. To pay for Obamas gas price we all have now ! We need change. Please vote.

    GBHB, I figured you would agree with bob....I also know you know nothing about how an economy works and blame it on capitolism. Well, its easy when you have no clue, just blame it on someone else. You know, Obama spent the US into a debt we cannot pay back, devalued the US dollar to the Saudis devalue the US dollar...even Bubba, has no clue and blames that is funny...He just described Obamas lobby and blames Bush, now you have to admit, thats funny. Opps, so did you! Well, isn't that special! Is that what they teach you on I mean, I know they do the important thinking for you since you cannot make a decision for yourself...its OK. Nanny is making you a nice big glass of koolaid before you go to bed. You will feel much better about that capitolism stuff. Koolaid is made at a capitolistic company. By the way, I have a green car...really! Yall, have a nice night!

    Thanks G. Bush for screwing up the economy, a winless war, the banking system, etc. B. Bush and Co. gets an A for protecting the banks, big oil, big pharma, etc.

    Oh, for the good old days when gas was 29 cents a gallon and I could fill up my 65 Buick Special for $5.00, plus they pumped the gas, checked your oil and water, cleaned your windshield, checked the tires, and that service with a smile all for free. Now we have to pump our own gas at almost $3.00 a gallon, and they do nothing but sit at a till and take your money. That's why they're called the good old days!

    I would not pin rising gas prices on Obama, Bush, or Carter. It is capitalism at its' finest. I think I agree with Bob. In fact, I believe Obama Snake Oil Co is the reason we have higher gas prices.

    Lavon, here is "your" doom and gloom I told you about. Now, if Obama takes Jimmy Carters lead, and goes after the oil will need that hotdog cart for the gas lines. Opps, Obama did say he was going after them, didn't he? Gosh, he hasn't even been in office for two years and we will see bread prices going up.....gas prices, food costs and may have gas lines....Lavon, you really know how to pick your paycut...

    Remember when gas prices were up before? People stopped driving (many out of necessity...) stopped shopping, eating out... Is anyone at the wheel?

    David, hang in there bud. Unbelievable. Where is the competition? We need some innovation, & it will probably come from another country. We all NEED to park our cars. Some will not have a choice.
