    Hey Larry! If we didn't have to worry about a bunch of crazy people trying to abduct our children they could probably ride their bikes to school or to the corner market. By they way, how do you get to work and back home or are you one of the weirdo's we all have to worry about???!!!

    What's the use. No matter what we say the oil Barons will get richer on the working and loafing man's back. I say that everyone stay home for two of three days a week (call in and say that you cannot afford to come to work) and not go to Walmart and spend money and something will be done.

    It boils down to our being spoiled/lazy. Most cars at Fayette mall wasting gas fighting for parking spaces closest to the door, when you can usually park at Sears' back door and walk through the mall in less time than is wasted waiting for a "good" space. The flat, level rear of the parking lot is perfect for a rail passenger platform! Electric cars were around in the early 1900s but recharging takes time. Perhaps battery exchange stations would add to their appeal. No one likes to wait for a bus or train, even though the wait time can be recouped by the faster travel time their proper use can give us. Plastic is everywhere and it comes from oil. Anyone for bio-degradable soy-based packaging to save our landfills? Alternative energy is everywhere. Let's harness it for convenient use. The industrial revolution got under way without oil, it can be expanded without it.

    Electric cars won't help. The electric companies will just raise the price of electricity accordingly to bring it on-line with gas prices... :)

    Hey SAM, electric cars have been available for almost ten years now. Keep complaining, negative people like yourself only hurt yourselves. Smile when you pump that gas, it feels so good.

    Its not the Texas oil man's fault as some of you have said. He could make just as much money by selling more quantity at a lower price. Plus,if its all Bush's fault,why hasn't any of the other canidates said they would lower the price. If you want to blame someone blame the previous administration's for giving in to the environmentalist wackos that stoped us from drilling for our own oil.

    i think gas prices should come down.these people that works and don't make money like 6'00 or 7'00 dollars ,that has to pay bills,and they are working it's make it hard on them,i know i was 1 0f them people working, i never did make over 8.00dollars and hour,alsoi never had kids but if i had kids that would been harder to buy gas ,pay bills, food,and a babysitter.i seen a lot of people try to make it on low income,it is really hard and these high gas prices is un call for.i drive a camey,it does get gas mileage,i can not see how people drives the big suv's,Do you think a lot of people are driving rental cars and truck's. but there is still payments on them.i never a rental car. i always owned my. but pred.BUSH needs to work for low dollars and buy GAS everyday,and drive everyday to work,maybe 20 miles each way,and then he could see what the people had to live,even the older people on fixed income ,it is rough on them, my prayers goes out to these people. DROP THE GAS PRICES,
