    I'm a Kerry supporter, and Bush has nothing to do with it. Maybe Dick Cheney (and that's reason enough to get rid of Bush) and halliburton, but that's it. It's not like gas would be so much cheaper if someone other than hallibuton had won all of the contracts.

    it cost $25 more than a year ago to perform the same flight at my aero club now. These rising fuel prices are another reason to get rid of Bush, thats for sure, and then after that trying to convince mainly americans to buy more "friendly fuel consumption cars"

    $1.97/gal here. It costs me roughly $25 every other week to fill up my 3.8L V6 Bonneville.

    Which is why I want to pick up a Hyundai Sonata.

    Went and filled up today @ $1.91 a gallon; it cost me $23.50 to fill up (I have a 14 gallon tank in my car). Strange thing was that the gas station I filled up at was cheaper today than yesterday; regular unleaded was $1.95 yesterday when I passed by there around 6 am.

    My father in-law traded his H2 for a Suburban. I don't know if that's an improvement in fuel economy or not...
    It is. Even though they are basically the same, I would guess that the hummer gets worse gas milage because it looks bulkier and is less streamlined.
    The H2 also uses a 6.0L V8, only found on Suburban 2500s. The 1500 Suburban uses the 4.8 and 5.3.


    My Elantra is rated 24/32.

    I traded in my Mazda B4000 (Same as a Ford Ranger) V6 4.0L for a 2.3L V4 Mazda 3, about double the gas mileage, but I sure miss my truck.
    I traded my 98 Dodge Stratus with a 2.4 I4 for a 98 Jeep Wrangler with a 4.0 I6. Whoops

    airlines usually hedge there fuel costs, qantas hedged there barrell of oil cost at $32USD a barrell, so makes no difference to them.

    our govt has a 55% tax on fuel, thats why we pay so much.
    55% perecent ?!?! thats way too much!
    55%, lol. Obviously, none of you has been to Germany in recent years. Our government gets fuel taxes of between 70-75&. THAT'S INSANE .

    One thing that would help is if people would quit speculating on oil. Analysts believe that $15-$20 of the current price is driven by the speculators. Some analysts are now thinking that the price is being driven up by someone :cough, cough: George Soros :cough, cough: that is trying to influence the Presidential election.

    Mark my words, if Bush wins the price will sky rocket thanks to manipulation of the market. If Kerry wins, expect it to drop like a rock to $40 per barrel or less.

    H2=suburban with different body panels. I thought I remember hearing somewhere that the chassis is the same
