Its been right around $3.85-3.90 at my local stations.

We can only take so much.

At least Nobama doesn't have the time to attack gun control.

First that is worth more then my car.
Second I am a fatass so there for the carbon fiber will not hold me. I would get on that it would snap in half the frame would then proceed to shove it's self up my ass causing me to have to go to the ER costing me another $5k to get said frame post removed from ass. Then I would be off work for too long get fired and then end up with countless medical bills and have to sell all my guns to FTF supporting members.

Think I will take a BIG PASS on that.

........ And then you would qualify as a member of Obamas needful people and would get government handouts that would total twice what you were making because you deserved it and those nasty people that work and expect to keep what they make would be forced to give you the half that you deserve. Sounds like a win win to me.

I think you guys should count yourselves lucky. Here in the U.K. Diesel for my Landrover is a staggering £6. 35 pence per gallon. As you will be aware however, our Government Taxes fuel and the motorist up to the hilt.
WE have had parades in London, HUGE petitions from motoring organisations delivered to 10 Downing Street with no effect whatsoever.
What never ceases to amaze me, is when the price of fuel here goes up, it's up by 18.00 hrs,the very same day!, but when the price of a barrel of oil comes down, the motorist never gets any benefit from the reduction.

It seems that even so called civilised Governments such as our (Is?), is no better than any other when it comes to the fleecing the motorist.

I saw it at $4.29/9 for regular yesterday. I think we should start demonstrating about the Vast Left Wing Eco-Conspiracy and the Socialist in Chief's energy policy or lack thereof.

The left wanted to hang Bush when it went to $3.00 and now not one of the bastards has a word to say and the freakin' media cosigns Maobama's bull$hit. The press is fellating Maobama like a two dollar whore.

I'm very near the end of my rope with all the sh*t. In fact, I'm long past it, but common sense and the need to care for my wife have kept me from going ballistic. I'm sure I'm not the only one that feels this way.

If we don't roust these socialist bastards in 2012 and get rid of the RINO's as well, things are bound to get very ugly.

We officially have $5 gas in DC. I have heard rumors of $6 if the dollar keeps weakening.

Gas prices touch $5 a gallon in D.C. - UPI.com
