Gas is too much. We should all make a day to ride bikes, buses, or walk to work. Lets see how we can affect there pockets, instead of theirss, ours.

Yeah, you are right and most of the time also take a bus and leave my car at home so I can save much money in a month end.

If Gasbuddy doesn't want replys to old posts, maybe they should remove the post but apparently people like myself see a topic and old or not, it's relevant so why not chime in.
Gas prices are way too high and are driven only by greed.
I'm on to the post about boycotting cause these stations need to get a message from their customer that affects their income the same way their high prices affect us.

Why are people responding to a two year old thread started by someone who hasn't returned to Gas Buddy since starting this thread? Do you really think the member is paying attention to your replies to hi?

And, this thread has been inactive for nearly a year. Just a reminder that Gas Buddy doesn't want old topics "bumped".

well I wonder who you voted for. Leftist tend to force the price up. We are seeing what he promised in 2008. He wanted to see European prices for gas.

It's good to cut it yourself, but it won't affect gas prices. They will rather increase prices more because demand decreases. Gas industry is not controlled by natural market economics anymore because of monopoly.

Everything comes with a price. Even if we did put on concentration on public transportation or do it by ourselves, there is would still be a need for gas and other energy resources. Besides, this nation is so big there is no way to get around with the demand we have today.

The real problem is we can't control the growth of other places in the world.

China has 1.3+ billion people - that's a little over 4 times the population of the United States. With all the newfound wealth (we've given them since they make 90% of what we consume in this country), what else are they going to do but buy cars and other things that run on gas?

We need to invest in the "next big thing" and move on at some point.

Buy only what you need and no more, if we all would do this it will make their life a little tough too. There is no reason for Gas prices to be this high, its time to do it back to the big guys in the oil industry and let them know that we wont take this crap anymore!

we have almost no control over the price of fuel....

best you can do is get fuel efficient vehicle that burns less fuel...

I did that when I purchased my diesel Jetta (average 42 mpg combined!!! )

Since the president has NOTHING to do with gas prices, this is ludicrous! What planet are you all from?

Now, certain policies and business practices may have lead to the increase in prices, but so has the world's usage of oil (up 50% in the last 10 years at least), the availability of oil, and EPA mandates.

If we didn't want gas/oil, the price would drop. But, since we're addicted to it, it won't.

Billions in profits are not considerered losses to the average person, but within the oil industry it just may be another story.

jnate22:

"I hope the oil companies lose a lot of money"

Forgetting that a lot of investments, including retirement funds and stocks, much of the economy, etc., are in the energy field, this is a great thought, hoping the oil companies lose a lot of money. If they lose a lot of money, one of two things could happen: Either, because they lose money they have to raise prices in order to cover operating expenses, or they go out of business. And if they go out of business, there will be fewer facilities to provide the product, and the fewer "companies" left will have less competition, which means that they raise prices easier without having to worry about competition providing lower prices to the same customers, and their having to match the lower prices the competition would have offered the driving public.

Great thought, jnate22, great thought. I'm sure a lot of research went into that comment before you posted it.

At $3.36 a gallon here - yes that is still way too high. I used to bike to work but now I live 8 miles out of the city so that's a bit too much for me. I really do plan my trips around town though as to not make extra ones.
