Something that I don't understand is why doesn't the government intervene here. I mean, they intervene on just about everything else, why not gas prices? For the longest time, when we were feeling it at the pumps, the price per barrell had not increased, just the price at the pump. The oil guys were getting rich. SO now that the price has increased, they increase it even more. What is going on?! The government says how much people can charge for selling bonds, why can't they say how much oilmen can make for selling gas?
I can still remember when I was 15 (7 years ago), riding around with my friends and gas was 85 cents a gallon. If it ever gets to $3.00 a gal
, I am seriously going to start looking for alternative transportation. People laugh at solar cars, but I can guarentee that the solar car owners are laughing their butts off at people who are paying $2.35 a gal
