First off, I didn't know if this should be put in "Peak Oil," "War On Terrorism" or this forum (and so, as you can see, I decided on this one).
Anyway, today, I just found out that, as gas, for me at least, is about $4.29 a gallon, I am now somehow able to spend $50 (I think it even went over
a bit) on gas, even though my tank was a quarter of a way full. Please note that I don't even drive an SUV or anything crazy like that. I was fine
with gas prices up until today
. But, this is not a mere price of gas rant thread, as I have a point: I really might believe that the US should
not have started a war if the current war has really raised the gas prices. Do any agree? OK so maybe this sounds horrible, but I love this way of
thinking. Why should we suffer for some war that doesn't concern us (or the average American)? I don't worry of terrorists attacking, do you?
Alright, fine, maybe Afghanistan was a justified invasion (if the events surrounding 9/11 was not a conspiracy at all), but what about Iraq? If the
invasion of Iraq has caused the raise in gas prices, then I am all against this part of the war
. I hope everything in the future is better, as
I plan on getting a car
. Let's talk about this topic!
