Yeah, oil topped $100 a barrel the other day, and here at least petrol prices are a week or so behind oil prices.

I wish I had a bigger diesel tank....

If gas hits $4 a gallon, and stays there, this nation will grind to a halt.

I'am just worried about hyper inflation.
When it hit $4 a couple years back, it put diesel at $5. And we damn near did grind to a halt. The country doesn't run on gas, it runs on diesel. Trucking companies went out of business all over the country nearly overnight.

Prices jumped, and that's the trigger that caused the economy to start the downward tumble that we're experiencing now. Our only saving grace at the time is that it didn't last long. Not that the economy improved any afterwards, but at least shipping wasn't too disrupted.

If the price stays high, we're in for a world of hurt. Everything is delivered by diesel.

Oil companies refused to raise prices during the BP spill....they would have been beheaded!

So now it seems ok ..... BE HEARD!!!

And yes, it's speculators too...they are the catalyst.

MAKE NOISE!!! People being vocal should be the headlines of every news agency, not what hollywood stars are doing.

Gas went from 3.23 to 3.45 for regular at the local convenience store today. The manager
says the main office told her it will go to $4 tomorrow. In Live Oak, Fl.
