I have grandparents who live near Herkimer in Little Falls.

I'm not sure what that has to do with gas though...

One thing that you probably should remember to factor in is that while, yes, the gasoline prices are higher than they have been, there is a nifty little thing called inflation.

Inflation is what happens when the Government prints more money but the GDP does not rise with it.

There are many reasons why the Government would do this. Sometimes its to fund expensive things like healthcare and wars. Within minutes of the 9/11 attacks, all of the money printing places had $100 and $1000 bills rolling off them and being distributed to the banks as fast as possible. This was to prevent a run on the banks and a possible economic collapse.

Because there was suddenly a lot more money, but no more things being sold, bought, or made, we have had a small recession for the past 2 1/2 years. Of course it didn't start with 9/11 and it certainly didn't stop.

One of largest continuing causes of the recession has been the percieved higher costs of oil. When you figure in the inflation you will see that we still have cheap oil compared to the 70's and 80's.

Unfortunately our economy is built almost entirely upon the confidence of its users, which means that a percieved hike in gas prices will have essentially the same impact as a real one, and that is not very good.

Default Ok here's a fact sort of

In canada it is like 95 cent's a litre i think. And just to tell ya the candian dollor to americans is 75 cent's. It are car is pardon my language but crapy, but it saves on gas it's a chevy cavalier 2003 /2004 and a tank lasts a week. We spend alot of time going back and forth to my house and the town, and it's like 15 20 minutes to town so. But it costs us about 35.00/45.00 candian dollors per a tank and also AMERICANS DON'T COPMLAIN YOUR GAS IS LIKE BUYING DIRT IT IS SO CHEAP.

You calling me a gay pyshcopathic freak. Gay no, pyshcopathic yes, freak of course, anything else you want to say, *waits* ok then, that\'s settled. oh no hear come the voices gotta go *runs like a (no offence) gay 3 yr old that has seen a ghost in his closet*.

i think a gas price hike everyone once in a while is a good thing...it pushes us to get less and less dependant on fuel...my family recently purchased a prius hybrid and get 50 miles the gallon. but i think by now its gotton a little out of control.
