Yeah but you are forgetting that the american dollar was worth a lot more when it was 150$ per barrell. Now the american dollar is almost worthless,
so 100$ per barell is really the same as 150$, which is why the price of gas is about the same. So we're not getting screwed, the dollar has just
de-valued that much, it's a sign that the economy is in rough shape, even if they tell you the recovery is going great.
On a side note, I really don't see that much trouble with these rising gas prices. People still can afford to eat out, and line up outside of stores
to buy the latest I-pad, or video games. Movies are still making 75 million on opening weekends. People have money, gas is just something to complain
about, even though we can all afford it. Just on the news tonight, they are saying gas will climb as high as $2 per liter this summer. I am ready
for it, and we will all have to be, because they know that everyone needs it. They always rise prices just before summer, just wait, come fall, it
will all drop back down to 1.20 per liter.
