Gas prices suck

The gas prices are getting out of hand.  It is funny that Bush comes out and says there is really nothing that the government can do about it right now.  I am not a big fan of government intervention anyway, but i find it super funny at how easy Bush got the stimulus plan to happen. 

At any rate, I saw Chrysler is now offering if you buy some of their cars that they will guarantee you $2.99 per gallon of gas for three years.  I noticed that all the cars that fall under the deal are SUV’s.  If people are going to buy a car because of that then whatever.  I want cheaper gas prices.  Maybe when a car company guarantees me Gas for $1.50-$1.99 a gallon then I might get a car from them. $1.00 a gallon would be most preferred.  

Is there any good reasons for gas prices to be this high?

    So what would you have the government do about gas prices? Give us the Moneywinks fix!

    I would have the government stay out of it. They already get plenty of money in taxing the industry. If they come up with a plan, it ends up costing us more money, kind of like the stimulus bill. They give us the money back and we end up spending it on high gas prices and not using our own oil in the United States.

    I think “we the people” need to come up with a plan for alternative fuel. Like use some natural resources such as the Sun. Doesn’t get more natural than that.

    Personally I think that the government should ease the bans on drilling of certain areas of the United States. I am not saying that they should try to anger all of the tree huggers in this country, but we are sitting on some of the largest oil fields in the world, and using those natural resources would do a lot more than drive the price of gas down – growth in our economy could be a big reason to open up the regulations. I guess the spotted owl is more important than making sure some people’s kids have enough food to eat! That may be a little drastic, but come on!

    I Think oil should not be a traded commodity. We should pay for what this country uses and not worry about what is happening in other countries or what the price is there.
