    If gas goes to 5.00 per gallon

    Will you give up Internet to save money?
    I posted this in another thread but am curious.
    I just cant help but wonder if it is part of a plan to break up the national and global wide connection of occupy.

    May the FORCE be with you!

    No, I opted for an electrically fueled computer. The old gas fired one was much too smelly and messy for home use.

    Did you have a newer one? They are much more efficient and clean burning.

    13. I didnt word it right

    not to stop it but would occupy have taken off across the country the way it did without the internet and places like DU spreading the word and events.
    That was my thought although maybe a bad one.

    21. The oil companies ability to manipulate gas prices with impunity

    is the secret weapon of the Repubs.
    Jack up the price, cripple the economy and make Obama look weak when there is little he can do.
    So how do you explain the high gas prices under Bush? And if oil companies can jack up the price when a Dem is in office, then it really shouldn't matter to them who the President is.

When reason sets in, I realize that I use so little gasoline (about 34 gallons a month) that a hike of a dollar or two isn't going to wreck the budget. But even so, the way the speculation market is portrayed, like there are some fidgety Henny Pennys in Atlanta pretending to be in London reacting like someone with shell shock being tortured by a practical joker just doesn't inspire confidence in the system.

    The price of gasoline today is the same (about $3.57 for Shell regular) as it was in October of 2007. I remember this because that is when I bought my new pick-up and the salesman at Clearwater Toyota complained that it cost him $56 to fill up the gas tank at Walmart.
