Analysts predict $10.00 a gallon gas


blacklistednews.com

That's the message from a couple of analytical energy industry
trackers, both of whom, based on the surging oil prices, see
considerably more pain at he pump than most drivers realize.

Ouch, huh? I'm already feeling pain at the pump! I ride my
bicycle to close-by places now, and wondering when we'll see
electric golf carts on the roads?

Jay Leno said recently, "I stopped to get gas, and the sign said
they take Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover Card;
So I filled up, and they TOOK my Visa, Mastercard, American
Express, and my Discover Card!"

The prices are already crippling the world wide economy. I don't think they will be able to sustain it too much longer. Demand is already decreasing and gas hasn't hit $4.00 yet. I wouldn't be surprised to see it hit $6.00 this summer, but even at that level our economy will collapse.

An analyst calling for $10.00 just seems like someone trying to get their name in the paper at this point. It could happen, but it won't stay there very long. If it does, high gas prices will be the least of our worries.

Me and my family could not absorb this cost, it just wouldn't fit into the tight budget. We would definately have to cull something to pay for the gas, I suppose this is when we would have to consider dissing the cable or phone, any higher and we might be talking about losing our home gas for heating/hot water, maybe even lights. That is how close it is for those of us who live paycheck to paycheck. I imagine those with little ones in the house are already at that point.

Stars, Karl & Space!

Yeah, Karl, sounds a bit TOO high, probably just attention propaganda!


We couldn't absorb much higher gas costs, either, Space- already scaled
back on insurance, and making 'just-over-the-minimum' payments on
two credit cards!!!

Gas in my area is already at $3.75!! for regular and $4.25 for diesel, i figure it will be over $4 for reg and over $5 for diesel by Memorial Day.

If you need tires for your car, better buy them soon. It takes a lot of oil to manufacture rubber for tires. Its only a matter of time before those prices start to jump.

If you want to stick it to the oil industry, buy a bike and grow your own vegetables. do whatever you can to limit the amount of fuel you use.

Spite is a powerful motivator.

I would expect some "miracle"breakthrough in alternative energy within the next year,two at the most.

Although this won't be a new energy-hence the quotations,it will be exposed at the right moment,I think that is why the Government is letting the ol companies make the profit they are,becasue they told them they are unveiling this alternate energy and they better get some money saved to prevent them from going bankrupt.


Of course this is all IMHO.




PS:The people who said 10/gallon...yea either grossly exaggerating or trying to get attention.

Nice thread......S&F!!!

$3.69 where I live! Great reply, camo, STAR!

Don't forget Solar!
Looking into it more now, technology is evolving
and prices to set it up are coming down a bit.

Ahead of you, wife & I got new bicycles last summer, riding them alot!


Plus, we heat our house entirely with woodburners for 8 yrs now! (free
wood a perk from my tree service).

And funny you mention home-growing, we're starting a small garden!
got a catalog from Burpee and it opened
my eyes!

We are already getting ripped off in the UK. Diesel is about £5.35 ($10+) a gallon and the Govt is putting another 9p on top in Aug/Sep. Plus all fuel has to have a 2.5% biofuel content rising to 10% by 2010.
No wonder the rain forests are being destroyed to grow crops for fuel, also it's creating a food shortage, all the maize, corn etc is being grabbed for fuel.

I think this is all a pre-planned set up for the NWO and the institution of "exotic"technologies.

We always wondered how the "trickle down"of technology would happen to something as big in the market as energy,well this is it,we're seeing it.

i know you said 'IMHO'...but i underscored that 'motivation' scenario you suggest...

Its my view that the present administration (with wall-to-wall Neocons)
is 'allowing the mega-int'l oil to reap these huge profits because the strategy is to make these NGOs (lets call them a fascist NGO) to thrive for the next several decades.... by making the energy service/production corps.
part of the governments ability to enforce its own Policy, on our poplation and internationally. Oil/Energy resources are now an intergal cog of the MIX=military-industrial-complex.
Oil corps status & wealth rose in tandem with the defense industry during the GWBush&Co years, don't you know....

just another shard of the multi-faced NWO.
Govt+defense+Oil/energy resources is the hub,
service industries from health to food are necessary tangets, but only necessary to ramp up when the govt Military & NGOs like defense & energy
needs are increased at another occupation-conquest requirement.

thanks

I'm pitching this thread around now whenever I see anyone posting about oil and gas prices. It's worse than most people think, and it is being done deliberately...

Revelations of Big Oil Chaplain Lindsey Williams...You Pay National Debt at the Pump

You gotta see this video.

The irony is that the expensive fuel is hauled in trucks which need that same expensive fuel to run.

I wonder if they are in the board room saying, how can we cut our fuel costs?

Higher oil prices in a captive market. Im surprised the oil giants havent spiked prices massively already. They are the proverbial drug dealer and we are all addicts.

The breakup of costs for a litre is as follows in the UK:

£1.09 (paid it today, £60 to fill my tank).

39p of that goes to the oil companies that includes their cost of extraction and transport to the forecourts AND their profit, and the profit of the forecourt.

The other 70p per litre goes to the government as fuel tax and VAT.


Who are the biggest looters here... not the oil companies!

If it hits anywhere above $6 a gallon; Daily life as we know it will cease to exist.

Regular gas in the bay area today is about $3.98. Premium is about $4.15.

San Francisco is even higher...

What gives? And when is it going to end?

We currently pay 1.6 euros per liter in the netherlands, which would be like what 7 dollars a gallon?

You have to know that there is no logical reason for this.
The people really controlling the prices are Americans.
If it were those Arabs, this would be a good excuse to bomb them all back to the stone age. Why exactly are we not getting a really good deal getting oil from Iraq? That should have been the reason to go there in the first place. We go in, we conquer and we take the oil.
The conquering should have been easy.
They did it all wrong.
But then they seem to enjoy longer games.
