    Here in the heart of sunny california #2 diesel is $3.00 a gal.

    If there is one thing that drives the price of just about everything , its the fuel needed to deliver products

    comming to a theater near you soon

    #2 was $2.35 here just 2 or 3 days ago. My truck was on E, but I put it off until last night. Sure enough, $2.47... Man, if the gas companies had better excuses to raising thier prices I wouldn't mind. But I swear if thier office has to buy a new fly swatter, the gas prices go up $.10 a gallon.

    We import all our fuel here and it has been over three dollars for the past year. Was about $1.80 when I moved here 7 years ago, but is now double.

    I was in Sweden in 1980, I remember gas being the equivalent of 78 cents a litre then, that is about $2.95 a US gallon, 25 years ago.

    Europeans have been paying big dollars for fuel for a long time, while we in the west have been spoiled.
    The way we build has a greater impact on our comfort, energy consumption and IAQ than any HVAC system we install.

    so what?


    who cares?


    if you judge it by who is doing something to curb gasoline prices ... you will realise right now that this is simply an acceptable price to be paying for what we are receiving.


    There are no picket lines at the pumps in America!
    There are no letter writting drives on right now to flood the state capitols and the white house with hard copy, personal letter, hand written, to inform the representatives of the great land ... exactely how we feel about this matter!


    we simply whine about the prices and yet we do nothing to prevent it from continuing.



    and where does the money go? To Arab nations.
    And where does terrorism come from? Arab nations.
    Who are the enemy which are killing our young men & women overseas right now? Muslims who hate Americans!


    If you ask me, we arent too smart! in my opinion.

    --------------------

    I cant count the number of times I have heard that statement used to justify the price we pay for fuel. I could care less how much europe has been charging their people for fuel, Now and for the past 25 years

    believe it or not we are in the united states! If the prise of fuel in europe rose like it has here they should be paying about $10.00 a liter by now

    we have a lame duck president that is in the oil busniess. the price at the pump has doubled in the past year and if you believe what the oil companys are telling you, the price of a barrell has risen from 25.00 to 61.00 the other day. If that were true we would be paying $10.00 a gallon also.

    When they raise the cost of diesel fuel(which BTW is the waste byproduct of the cracking process) it affects everything. It costs the refineries no more to produce a gallon of diesel from a barrell than it does gasoline

    so why is diesel so much more expensive?

    and why does it cost more to produce it in europe

    We recently drove my truck/camper on a 2000 mile trip through the Rockies.
    I spent more on bottled water, Baileys, wine and beer than I did on diesel.
