For those with smartphones, the app GasBuddy can save you a few cents - not just around town but especially when you are on the road!

(Here in Huntsville I have seen a low of 3.12 and a high of 3.43!)

Now why would you want the gas to keep going up?

To justify his decision to buy a diesel and make it more acceptable to him. Like some folks, "I got mine, let's see you get yours"

If gas prices go up, how is he saving on his lawn mower fuel bill? Does he have a diesel lawn mower?

Gas is still comparatively cheap. My Olds goes 24 miles per gallon of gas. You couldn't get me to walk 24 miles for $3.79. Even at $10 a gallon, its cheap if you look at it the right way.

I don't know why they try giving excuses, they would be just as well telling us it's none of our business just pay up.

How's this make you feel:
Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson received $24.7 million total compensation.
Exxon has received $600 million annual tax breaks. In 2011, Exxon paid just 13 percent in taxes. You and I average around 25%The company paid no taxes to the U.S. federal government in 2009, despite 45.2 billion record profits. It paid $15 billion in taxes, but none in federal income tax.
In fourth quarter 2012, Exxon bought back $5.3 billion of its stock, which enriches the largest shareholders and executives of the company. The buyback cost was taken as an expense against profits.
Exxon’s federal campaign contributions totaled $2.77 million for the 2012 cycle, sending 89 percent to Republicans.
The company spent $12.97 million lobbying in 2012 to protect low tax rates and block pollution controls and safeguards for public health.

In October, Chevron made the single-largest corporate donation in history. Chevron dropped $2.5 million with the Congressional Leadership Fund super PAC to elect House Republicans.
The bulk of Chevron’s federal contributions came from the super PAC donation, for a total of $3.87 million for the 2012 cycle. 85 percent went to Republicans.
Chevron spent $9.55 million lobbying Congress in 2012, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
Chevron paid 19 percent U.S. taxes last year (half of the top corporate tax rate of 35 percent), and received an estimated $700 million in annual tax breaks

Now that we know how the greedy ba$t@rd$ get away with it what are we going to do about it??
Every time some arab has a wet fart the Oil Elites use it as an excuse to raise prices.
And we still believe that if we become oil self sufficient we'll somehow save money and keep prices low. Anybody seen that happen yet?? And we're not likely to either since the price is based on the world market price not what it costs to grow your own.
Plus all the political clout an industry earning over $100 BILLION a year in profits (that's right, not gross revenue, but pure profits) has with our illustrious leaders; well you get the point. There is no true free market competition in this industry.

My sincere apologizes for the soap box rant, but this fuel price thing just gets my goat.
