We need to come up with a plan as a nation to make these huge gas company's not be able to bend us over whenever they want.

Maybe we should all not buy from the the biggest gas company chains and force them to lower there prices and all gas stations would have to follow to be competitive Think about it this may really work.

I use 87 from either Chevron (my preferred) or Unocal 76.

Ben... , definitely experiment with different brands. I used to gas up at Getty which was right down the street from me and was the cheapest place to get gas but then I moved onto Exxon gas and I stayed with 87. I didn't think much and I went on like this for a few months and then one day I gased up at Getty again and holy crap!!! I can actually feel the difference between brands. Exxon gas is sooo much better and my suby runs like a charm on it and maybe this is in my head by i could feel slight power loss with the Getty gas which I now know is crap. Ofcourse, things like different days and all that may account for some of this but I tell ya, it definitely is worth getting better brand for a couple of cents more.

now i know that i was complaining earlier....it's just fun. but let's put these "outrageous" gas prices into perspective.

ONE GALLON of gasoline = approx. $2
------------------------------------------------------------------

ONE BOTTLE of water = approx. $1
--------------------------


ancient, refined, depleting fossil fuel for cheaper than what 2/3 of our world is made of???? WTF?
and we do have pretty much the cheapest gas in the world, even in US dollars.

still, pissing in the tank would be the most ideal solution.

thing is, most people don't buy bottles of water 15 gallons at a time.

But, to make it worse, there's a bottle of perfume, (forgot which one, my wife knows) that's $1600 a gallon. $12.50 an ounce. People buy this stuff without complaining, and then scream about gas prices.

Well... Im not sure on the conversion of Gallons to litres...
but the 98 octane Shell fuel I use is generally
95-96 cents per Litre... (although atm is more like $1) in Australian Dollars of course...
Which although people say thats expensive...
In the world scheme I'd bet it wouldn't be far off the cheapest.

That's better than what I pay out here in Southern California.

According to this site (http://www.books-maps.com/AU/converter.html),
$1 (US) = $1.92 (AU)

1 gallon (US) = about 3.79 liters.
So you pay $3.79 (AU) for 1 gallon (US) of gas.
$3.79 (AU) = about $1.98 (US)
I pay about $2.10 - $2.20 for 87 octane while people in Australia get away with $1.98 for 98 octane! Damn...

I guess Australia has better gas prices than California!

(Unless my numbers are wrong, which the very well could be, in which case, please disregard everything I just wrote and pretend I never posted any of this).
