Default Quitcher Bitchin'? Fuel prices...

You think our gas is expensive? My fellow hog dogger in New Zealand told me they are paying $2.00 per liter for Diesel which is $7.58 per gallon... Gas is more.

But wait there is more!!! They also have to pay a road use tax over and above that... Try $210 for permission to pay that for diesel for about 3,000 miles so if you drive 15,000 miles per year, $1,550 tagged on your fuel expenses.

The problem is not the price of fuel, but our money is the world currency that is used to purchase oil. Now our inflation is astronomical and our rediculous spending by our worthless Government is the reason our gas is so high. It actually has nothing to do with oil companies proffits, and user consumption, that is what the irresponsible politicians tell you so they can continue to spend like mad men and women.

Huh? Either you really don't understand the idea of a commodity or you just like venting randomly about the government.

Oh I understand completely. Our Politicians have sold us down the river. I also know about commidities but that is just bunk. The bottom line is we are too deep in debt and our money is worthless, and they are trying to push us over the edge for a one world Government and money.

OK, I'll say you're not crazy with the theory but what does that have to do with gas prices?

It is no theory, it is fact. The oiul is traded with US dollars as currency, our dollar value is way down because our debt and inflation is way up. So that is what it has to do with fuel prices. Keep believing the spoon fed horse manuer they are feeding you, but in the mean time try economics 101.

For those that don't think that the value of the dollar doesn't effect the price of oil, please read this:

Lobsterman is right on. I'm not bashing our government, just saying our monetary policies are total Bullshiiiiiiit.
