Just curious what everyone else thinks. With oil prices nearing the $100/barrel mark, what should we be doing about it? Is it time to open the Alaskan Wildlife Refuge to drilling? Should we be opening up our own domestic reserves? Maybe we should stop selling the oil we drill here in the U.S. to other countries? What are your thoughts fellow Hypesters?
 
Now what???

What happened to Ethanol?

Wasn't that supposed to take off like hot-cakes?

I remember them praising it in late 2005. I figured there would be stations with E-85 pumps all over the place.

Costs probably did something to its success.
 
You know what's worse than paying ****loads for gas?

Selling it. :down
 
We get ****ed out of more money thats what!! "gas" petrol prices in the Uk are ****ing crazy now
 
I can walk to work and I am withing walking distance of a grocery store....I really don't care right now
 
You seriously, we Americans should just shut the f**k up about gas prices. We've brought it upon ourselves by our constant gas guzzling (yes it is gas guzzling) and demanding crap like the Hummer. Also, places like Europe and Japan pay twice as much as we do.
 
Although, inflation has a lot to do with it. I don't think a lot of people understand this.

So, your typical old man comes in, wants to buy gas. He says, "I remember when gas used to be, oh 15 cents a gallon!"

Yeah, man, and minimum wage was, like, 35 cents. :cmad:
 
God forbid Americans stop driving their Soccer-mobiles......
 
I'm just going to throw this out there...when are we going to start taking Iraq's oil. I mean, lets not be coy about it, its the reason Bush invaded their country. At this point, I say, whats the harm? We've invested billions of dollars into their country. They will never be able to repay it. Why not skim a little off the top?
 
looks like we need to start walking :( I work 25 mintues from my job by car though . . . :( :(

Oil supply is finite.
It is ******ed to be so dependent on something that will run out.
It is ******ed to be dependent on the whims of foreigners.
One of the top priorities should be to find a renewable, eco-friendly source of fuel.
The government is ******ed, like a roommate who blows his rent on beer, or a girl who gets pregnant in junior high.
 
That was good beer though right? :(
 
Tell some suburban housefrau she cant drive her overpriced soccer mobile to pick up her Starbucks and you will hear a screeching that will explode your ears.....

People say they want to help, but dont want to sacrifice....
