Saw on the news this morning that within the next 24-48 hours gas prices will spike between 10 & 25 cents per gallon due to "unrest in Iraq."

Way, way south.
The whole pricing of gas/oil is such carp, I cannot stand it.

Events around the world that occur that *may* affect production on some far off way affect prices immediately. Please. What other commodity remotely acts like that?

I call B.S. on that whole pricing structure and the fluctuations. B@$+@7#$.

2 days ago, our gas suddenly jumped from $3.98 to $4.19. This morning, it was down 2 cents to $4.17. If it jumps up another 10 to 25 cents, I'm going to have to start riding my bicycle to work and arriving sweaty and gross. This is getting ridiculous.

I have an almost-empty tank and I was waiting and hoping it would drop another few cents today or tomorrow. Guess I should fill up at lunchtime. Sigh.

I hate to pump gas. I always wait until my vehicle starts yelling at me with blinking lights that I only have "1 mile left to empty". Well, sometimes she says "0 miles left to empty". I'm dangerous and like to live on the edge.

In a few years we will be energy independent from any mideast oil. Frack that oil and crack that natural gas!

This is awesome! We leave for the beach tomorrow morning - taking two cars on a 650 mile round trip. With each car averaging 30 MPG that's about 43 gallons of gas x 25 cents = about $11 more in fuel costs.

Oh, well, I think I'll recover quickly once my feet hit the sand.

Really glad we both drive less than 2 miles to work though....
