    Just heard on the radio, gas could go to $2.50 per gallon this summer.

    We just hit 2.09 I said if it went over $2 I was raising my service call price.

    Someone in washington needs to get off thier ass and look at this real serious like.
    So far it's been "oh well"

    Well now it's time to do something.

    I went to the dentist today a little filling $304. I just got that filling about three months ago & it fell out no warranty at all I think we all in the hvac field should get more money.Sorry just had to vent on that.

    Geez imagine what it would have cost if you had more then that one tooth. The filling fell out because your over working that tooth, try eating more soup.

    Get used to it, ever notice that it shoots up during the summer driving season, levels out for the winter and then shoots up again? Another couple of years and we will be at $5 a gallon

    Do you think the politicians in Washington pay for gas out of their own pocket? I doubt it and unless they can feel the pain there will be little done about it.

    Out here in cali the refinerys shut down for Maintenance each year at this time for a month and when they do, they bounce the price to the level they want us to get used to paying. you will hear every excuse why the price is going up
    but for the last 5 years they have done this.
    Up untill the time I went to school I worked as a millwright and we worked on those shutdowns every year. Every tank on their lot is full in advance of the shutdown, so we end up paying for it.
