Do you think the oil companies are just greedy? Why?

Yeah, but who isn't? Drug companies are too

I don't think that they are necessarily greedy....I think Bush has a lot to do with the gas hike. And, I am sure gas prices will lower before election time. It's all a ploy to win votes.

I think oil companies have to charge more for fuel because we are depleting our resources. If they sold it too cheap...we would buy and use it all up in no time.

People should start to use Desil, and this country should be more open to it. It goes 30% further, but the government puts so many additives in it that they mess it up. Clean Desil is teh best we have.

hehe- we could all be in those tri-wheel lightweight solar cars with enough cargo room to store an extra bag of groceries, speeding down the highway at 15mph, and getting out to push when a cloud covers the sun

But it's Europe that has taken advantage of clean desil the most. That's a smart move on the european part.

$2.09 here in Wisconsin. Its because of the tax they put on it. I guess its better they tax our gas than us having to pay really large road utility taxes.

Whereabouts in New York? Metro, Long Island, Upstate?

New Jersey's gas is supposed to be cheaper...

Ah. I have a friend up in Sarinac lake (if that is remotely spelled right). Another in Utica, one in Herkimer, one in Saugertes, and one in Albany. All over upstate

So I guess you'd be closer to the Erie canal. My dad used to lug hot tar up there. Anyhow... I wonder why the gas is so cheap...

They aren't hauling any up the Erie canal, so your town can buy it right off the ships, are they? (assumining you live somewheres along either the Erie/Champlain/Cayuga-Seneca/Oswego canal systems)

NJ has an excuse, since we refine it right here... You have no excuse to have cheap gas! You're making me jealous

Could you get a few gallons, box it up, and send it to me?
