People Still Heading To Lake Cumberland Despite High Gas Prices

Memorial Day weekend is coming up, and people at Lake Cumberland wonder if high gas prices will dampen this year's fun.

Pulaski County tourism officials say most hotels in the area are booked for the three day weekend. And those at storage facilities say people are working overtime to get their customers' boats ready.

Some marinas will charge about five dollars a gallon for gas, so that could mean fewer houseboats out on the lake.

    THERE YOU GO TERRI, BLAMING SOMEONE WITHOUT ALL THE FACTS. ALL THE HIGH OIL PRICES COME BECAUSE OF THE STOCK MARKET AND THE PEOPLE WHO BUY UP THE OIL AND HORD IT UNTIL THEY CAN SELL AND MAKE A PROFIT ON IT. THIS GOES BACK TO THE LAW OF SUPPLY AND DEMAND. GET REAL, THE PEOPLE OF THE WHOLE WORLD AND THIS MEANS YOU , ARE THE ONES TO BLAME FOR THE STATE THE WORLD IS IN. NO ONE PERSON COULD HAVE DONE IT.

    Demand $2 a Gallon Gas Oil was $127 a barrel recently. Germany fought WWII with synthetic fuel from coal. America, with 1/3rd of Earth’s coal, can be energy independent for an estimated $55 a barrel, including the infrastructure and labor force necessary to operate plants. It is proven technology. Synfuels are cleaner burning than gasoline and carbon sequestration can remove CO2. Visit http://governor.mt.gov/hottopics/faqsynthetic.asp Furthermore, reducing our trade imbalance keeps jobs in America. Every billion of trade deficit costs 13,000 jobs. $400 billion for oil last year: do the math. And we stop sending billions to countries that sponsor terrorism. Harness your anger at the pump. Call you're US Senators and demand they break ground on America's energy independence by encouraging an American synthetic fuel industry in this decade. If you don’t raise your voice the oil companies and politicians will assume you are ready to pay even more.
