Lower income families are most affected by high gasoline prices
The problem is not energy; the problem is oil
Replacement fuels available TODAY can solve our oil addiction problem

It’s killing the economy with these high gas prices I’m a father of two and trying to live with in my means paying for rent and bill and trying to put gas in my car. It cost me $50.00 to $60.00 a week just for gas just to get from home to work and work to home and take my kids to school and pick them up from the baby sitters and trying to make share there is food on the table. Is there any way to lower these prices please help.
Gas is a waste product of crude oil made usable. The United States has more oil production now than Countries like Saudi Arabia.
By 2030 the United States will be in a position to be an “oil Producing Nation” or more to the point an OIL SELLING NATION.
We won’t sell, but the point is that greed is the only reason for current pricing. We had fewer problems during our actual gas crisis in ~1973.
The rich spend their money lobbyistssts and paying to re-elect those whom play ball with them.
Until the people can vote out those who give the oil companies everything they want – nothing will change.
politiciansicans are bought and sold daLobbyistsbists write our laws and the rich suffer nothing, I’ll takThatt tha anyone reading this understands that their no longer is a middle class in America and that 1% of our population controls all the rest.
We are gutless, spineless and continue to be led like sheep. Until We get mad – nothing will change.
Write, not email your Congressman & Senator…
I have been preaching a similar argument for nearly thirty years.
I have maintained that once technology catches up and gives us cars that no longer need petroleum, the price of oil will plummet.
I also believe that the oil prices are inflated for just that reason. The oil producing nations are aware of the coming change, and have pushed the prices up for as long as the market will bear it.
The interesting thing here is that by dramatically raising oil prices, they have caused the very thing that they fear.
Their greed has pushed us to demand alternative fuel vehicles earlier than the normal pace of technology would have given them to us, Had oil prices remained low, we would still be waiting. They have let the proverbial genie out of the bottle, so to speak.
I have said it over and over again. The fools have shot themselves in the foot.
With you, and others like you, putting the pressure on Washington, the days of $1.00/gal. and less, for gasoline will be back.
This is also a worry. They have the power to reverse the trend. Lowering oil prices far enough will make the alternative fuels way more expensive then petroleum.
The question is, just what will be the result? Will the movement towards alternative fuels stall? Will the Government step up and tax petroleum to make the alternative fuel prices competitive?
We may find ourselves driving around in vehicles using $2.00/gal. alternative fuel, while the people with the “older” gasoline vehicles are paying $1.00/gal. A bit of a scary thought.
There is enough technology in this world to make any car run on any kind of fuel but that isn’t possible because the government has passed laws that make this illegal!! There is too much greed in this world.
