    In the burbs of Atlanta... Gas 6.00 per gallon. Stations turning away people with no/gasoline.

    Sad so sad. Greed absolute greed.

    No the end is not near. But this is price gouging and creating panic. Wonder how many people will die just like in the 70's?

    We are retired. I told my kids to stay put and don't drive anymore than they have too. +

    I don't remember the 70's. Did something happen then? What happened? Where was I? Who am I?

    $6.00 a gallon, Damn it hasn't hit here yet. Gas is still at $2.71 and expected to go up to $2.91 by Friday. I don't drive to much but went and filled my van up today. $50.00 later, I am going to ahve to make this last a while.

    Supply=Demand =Price

    We have oil, we just don't have the means to refine it. Mostly because of *******s like this

    LMAO, I was born in 70 so I don't remember most of them. I do have a friend who is running his pick up on cooking oil instead of gas. It is the damnest thing, it really works. I was over at his house the other day and seen the set up of how he filter and re filters the used oil. He had about 75 gallons completed when I was there. He used it to drive from here to Minnesota. Not to bad for a hippy.

    The hurricane may be to blame for the recnet refining problems, but the price of crude has been climbing for some time, as is the price of gas, higher than it has ever been, oil companies meanwhile reap record profits. Our administration is happy to let things go along as they are, free market price gouging and all. And oh yeah, hold hands with the wonderful arabs as well...........

    Do you know how long it takes to build a refinery? When you can't get it out, the price will climb. All we need is a few more Robert Kennedy's and we are all fu<ked

    Heard on the news tonight that it costs $4.00/barrel to produce crude. Someone's price gouging. I'm thinking OPEC.
