$3.80 was last week. I was seeing $4.15 this morning.

I was reading a short story written in 2005. It had a faux news story for 2012 "that oil producers believe current prices near $80 a barrel are not too high." Somebody's crystal ball is on the fritz, and I think it's the author's.
I'm generalizing from one example here, but everyone generalizes from one example. At least, I do.

I've heard tell of this gasoline you speak of.

Seriously, I feel so out of the loop not owning a car anymore. They haven't jacked the rates on public transit...yet.

But my reasons for keeping the tax is for pure revenue purposes. At least keep it high for usage.

Anyone got a good chart as to where these taxes generally go?

Just Google for Halliburton and any of Cheney's friends.

I'd be all for $10/gallon gasoline taxes if the money went into a viable alternative to gasoline (and corn based ethanol isn't viable)

The only way there would be riots is if they were announced on American Idol and then reinforced on Deal or No Deal and then someone sent an SMS 10 minutes before-hand to say "Go!"

It's the same with the start of the revolution.

The revolution will not be televised, it will be texted.
