Price of gas going up 50 cents

I heard that the price of gasoline is suppose to go up 50 cents or better by Easter. I don't know about you fellas, but I am going to fill up my cans and drums. Let's see....$400.00 fill up. WO.

If your RC51 doesn't bring you to your knees, you are not a righteous man...lol.

Compared to what people pay for a bottle of Beer($1-2.50), can of Soda($.75-1.00), cup of Starbucks Coffee ($5-7), or energy drinks ($2-4 a can) etc. cutting back on any of those would more than cover any hike in gas prices. Gas is the least of my worries. LOL Gas: I need it, I gotta pay for it and there is really not much I can do about it. but the other stuff I can def do without! Ok i'm addicted to coffee but not starbucks. Just dirty, Oily Navy Coffee. Hmm good!!

Gas prices aren't down to production costs... it's about what the market will bear.
Our prices in Japan are about 2/3 of what they are in UK, but still less than the US.

The dollar is weaker than it used to be due to the printing press DC turns on every time they run out.

The best Congress money can buy.
Just like the age old joke, "How can you tell if Congressman is lying? When his mouth is open."

I don't know about today's Navy, but my boat ran on coffee.
Without coffee, the whole ship would probably slip into narcolepsy.

I'd fire the whole lot and make them work in soup kitchens the rest of their miserable lives. That way they could say they gave back in a real way.
