    Gas jumped the other day from 69.3 cents (and we were happy duh!!!) to 78.2cents. we pulled up to put in our $5.00 (my protest) and the gas guy said the truck that just pulled out filled his dual tanks $176 dollars OUCH!!!! Spring is in the air (weatherwise and season now) I'm tuning up our bikes intend to burn off the winter excess instead of loosing weight in my wallet.
    What North America should do is open up the reserves and watch the price per barrel drop (which is a load of crap)

    Ironically I watch The Lonely Planet alot and in Iran gas is completely subsidized. Freefill, cheap bus tickets and very cheap in country plane tickets. It must be the same in Iraq.

    When I went to the gas station this afternoon they told me to wait a minute before I pump so that they could raise the price...

    Just kidding. hehe But it's really getting ridiculous. I will participate in the gas thing from April 7-9 but I don't exactly see what it does.. We're buying more gas the day before so nobody is really losing.. Maybe it's just to show how many concerned citizens are out there.. But I'm sure they know everyone is concerned anyway...

    Well Sal,
    If we sit in apathy and do absolutely nothing - nothing will change. This date falls on a weekend when the gas companies usually hike up their prices anyways and if 15 million expected customers don't fill up it does put a dent in the over all flow chart. It shows that people may eventually get fed up and look for alternative transportation that will cost the cartel down the road. Last year there was a one day protest in North America and prices did remain fairly decent over the spring and summer. Something has to give because it will also affect the truck and suv market. A few of my friends are already putting their trucks up for sale because they can't afford to fill their tanks. That means jobs lost and more Flint Michigans. We have a little 4 cylander that we used to be able fill for $19.00 and get about 1000 highway km's to the tank. Now we put $10.00 in and it only fills the tank 1/4 of the way.
