    Had they not been greedy and charged a few bucks more than they paid rather than 10x what they paid, they would have made a decent profit and not got shut down.

    Gas has dropped slowly since the barrel price went down to $35. We're down about .35 a gallon from last week.

    I had Influenza A and Bacterial Pneumonia last April, I went to the Doctors office I felt so bad, passed out in exam room. I woke up with 3 doctors 4 nurses and an ambulance crew putting me on a gurney. I was in the hospital 4 days, off work an extra week. EKG & electrolytes messed up, they thought I had a heart attack. Blood sugar messed up they thought I was diabetic. When I looked at the bill the medication alone was over $30K (at least that's what they charged my insurance). It was all caused by the regular flu and pneumonia. It took 4 months to start feeling normal again. It was 6 month before the doctor said all signs were gone. Since then my blood pressure has been different, goes high then low, never stays the same (normal) like before. If this crap is worse than that, then I'm all for staying away and some of the other recommended actions (even if it's the regular flu).

    Hope you all stay healthy

    keep in mind, Saudi Arabia is flooding the market with oil right now. They are trying to put the hurt on Russia and America because: (1) America is now the largest producer of oil (2) Russia is a close second and Saudi Arabia is tied for #2 and the Saudi's are pissed that Russia is not going to kiss their ass (in a trade deal), so there is a price war going on. Brent crude ( last I checked) was at $31/bbl, sweet crude was at $30, thats the lowest its been in 20 years or so

    gas prices around western NY are about $2.25/gal, I don't know what diesel prices are.

    But I went to BJ's yesterday to get my precious Peanut M&M'sŪ, using there "octane program" and coupons we paid $1.60/gal. If you buy products on the Octane program you get .10Ē off a gallon for every item on the program.

    Our state fuel tax in IL is .38 per gallon. Add county and city taxes and I would imagine .70-.80 of every gallon sold goes to taxes.

    Well yeah, that's what happens when you ban ethanol, then cook up some methanol. D'oh!
