Here we are - $3.00/gallon Diesel!

Page 1 of 2  
I ventured out this morning, drove past our local automotive oasis, and saw it, yes IT - $2.999/gallon Diesel, about a dime ABOVE premium gas.
Bush's energy policy!
They talk, talk, talk and talk and we pay, pay, and pay.
What do you think about it??????

Though unhappy with paying $2.70 per gallon for super unleaded,I'm thankful that I don't live in Norway and pay $7.00 per gallon.
Here in Alaska,we have a permanent fund dividend paid yearly to residents from the oil companies.The highest it ever reached was $1975 back in 2000.That year,the state government sent us a check for $7900,but now the dividend has plummeted down to $900.Now at the prices of gas,seems that we just barely break even figuring the total spent a year.Only a $3600 check this year,SIGH!!!!

It's not only Bush's policy what is behind this.
You americans buy growing amounts of goods from China and other countries and that's why chinese can afford buying your oil paying more than before.
So, you can thank yourselves for this.

When you have less money you can't afford to valuable US made goods any more and you have to buy more cheap chinese crap.

Obviously you have never been shopping in the US.Import goods far out number domestic goods(Shoes,clothes,electronics etc,etc.)
Not only has the cost of oil skyrocketed,the prices of food,rent, non essential services(cell phones,entertainment,etc...)has greatly increased,but the income of the average American has not.
You are familiar with supply and demand right?Well,if Chinese goods are in demand,the prices increase,thus.................See?

You're moaning about a rise in the low North American prices.
So long as you are nowhere near most of the rest of the developed world you will gain little sympathy except from fellow NAs who make up, of course, the majority of the participants of this newsgroup.. :-)
In the last two weeks I was driving around Italy in a rented diesel vehicle and paid EUR 1.12 to 1.15 per litre. About the same as in the UK.
BTW it was, as last year, an Alfa Romeo 147 with a 1.9 l turbodiesel. Maaan, what pulling power in third... Still the prettiest car in its class, I think. http://www.alfaromeo.com/cgi-bin/pbrand.dll/ALFAROMEO_COM/models/models.jsp?BV_SessionID=@@@@0344891624.1123412033@@@@&BV_EngineID ceaddffgmdeflcefecejgdfiidgnm.0&categoryOID=-1073784434

Further to T G Lambach's lament, I just heard on the radio news that standard 95 octane petrol (c. 91 US) has hit 90 pence a litre somewhere in Britain. (Well, it's been well over 80 pence in the London area for a while.)
Get your violins out please.
(The other week I was in Jordan where the price was much closer to US levels; I enjoyed filling up...)

It goes in phases but you noticed... :-)
During the previously-mentioned family holiday in Italy we drove south from Lake Garda to Florence, which meant that the motorway went past Modena which is near that house of dreams in Maranello...
No, did not get into the Ferrari factory -- that's hard even for customers, I gather -- but to the nearby official Galleria/museum: http://www.galleria.ferrari.com/galleria/index.htm?language=ENGLISH
We bought the most expensive baseball cap ever, EUR 20, but at least it is 10 000+ times cheaper than a car despite the prancing horse at the front... and, as it is very bright red, is great for locating our little son in a crowd if he runs off. Nearly lost him in the Leaning Tower of Pisa complex.
Side observation: that cap was available in innumerable souvenir shops in Florence. Same price and quality in every one. Talk about having a grip on the market...

It's not the energy policy it's the war in Iraq. Your paying for it twice, once in taxes and second in high energy cost. We need to gety him and his lackeys out of office.

The semi-free US economy keeps the rest of the Euro/CA socialists afloat. No doubt. Weaken the US significantly and the socialist economies don't survive. All they'll do is grab more control. Because, by definition, that's what socialists do.
