    Many businesses in town suffer from these extremely high prices, but some of us try not to go to town if needed, order supplies online, so the deliveries are carpooled, carpool to work and to shop with neighbors and friends. Many people are upset by the lack of purchases at local stores. This can cause a problem, but it is also helpful when local companies offer delivery services in which certain supplies can be delivered to certain areas, or when the community insures that this occurs. It doesn't always happen that way, and sometimes, even I have to hail a ride from across town, taxi or friend. When it's not necessary to drive all over tarnation, don't do so. Thanks.

    That chief energy secretary on Obama's administration said their main agenda was to get gas prices as high as European prices so that it would make all that wonderful green energy look more appealing to everyone. What gets me is California the most liberal state with more idiots opposed to drilling oil then anywhere else, decided it to be OK to drill oil in that town that needed money as long as it helped the community and schools. What a bunch of Hippocrates. Its OK when its in their back yard and effecting them directly but not good for everyone else. We need to tap into our own resources and benefit ourselves. These gas prices are going to effect jobs and what people's needs truly are. Unless you are on welfare people are only going to be able to buy gas pay a bill or two and eat hot dogs. And I hate to say it but I think we are going to have 4 more years of this destruction.

    So why are gas prices continuing to increase. At least we used to get some patronizing excuse. The last time prices were this high was hurricane Katrina. No hurricane in years. Not Suprised, I don't remember anyone ever blaming Bush. I think the criticism was oil subsidies along with record profits. Taxpayers seem to be subsidizing oil companies and paying dearly at the pump simultaneously.

    I guess Obama is a secret oilman, after all it was Bush's fault when gas prices were high last time. And to blame him and not blame Obama would be hypocritical, right?????
