    I am going to be honest, based on what a couple people have already posted I am seriously considering deleting it anyways.

    Personally I am offended by the racist comments, the sexist comments and the flagrant hate comments posted in here. AFAIC this thread should be gone.

    I counted 12 comments on the first page alone that I view as sexist or racist. Perhaps it is my egalitarian upbringing that makes me view it as such but I am highly offended but what I have read from some of the people here. Not all the people who have posted, mind you, just a few. But that does not change the fact that it is inappropriate.

    While this may be an open forum it still has rules and one of them is to not be blatantly offensive. Some of these posts are just that.

    one thing to think of about the price per gallon of gas............................the cost of gas didnt move a whole lot for 20 years. i know up here anyway the cost of drilling a well between the equipment, the legal fees verytime a new well is drilled in the county they have to run a legal notice in out paper, that costs money, getting the permits cost money, making the equipment met OSHA regs takes money..... that wasnt needed 30 years ago, my brother works in the oil fields and cant believe how physically UNDEMANDING its gotten in the last 10 years due to all the new equipment and such required by OSHA.....not to mention all the descrimination and sexual harrassment lawsuits.............you wouldnt beleive it but the oil fields used to be about the same as the average highschool locker room as far as language jokes and teasing.....cant do thatnow, someone gets offended and sued....gotta love our sue happy culture..........anyways when all is said and done up here it costs about $1 million to punch a new hole before you even start pulling oil out of the ground.....in places like the north slope of Alaska im sure its double that atleast due to all the infrastructure thats needed for the workers........

    also you should know your lovely congress men and women are looking to raise taxes on the oil companies........think about this for a minute........say the feds decide to tax Andrew an extra $.75 per plant he sells what is Andrew going to do? take less profit? no he is going to raise costs on the consumer end to insure profits just like any buisness.......the house has passed it, im hoping like hell the senate kills it or we will definatly have $4 gas by summer.................i dont agree with all the tax cuts and handouts the oil companies get, they should be able to stand on their own two feet just fine but raising taxes on them is only going to raise the cost of gas at the pump

    I agree with this, some posts on the first page i could not even finish reading it got me so angry, some of the posts are racists and very offensive.

    Petroleum costs as much as it does because people will buy a lot of it at a high price and, given the problems petroleum guzzling causes, the price isn't high enough yet. But the current taxes don't even cover the costs of roads, highway patrols, etc., let alone begin to cover the costs of oil defense, environmental degradation, social damage and other less-direct costs. Right now, we've got a socialist system where everyone shares the cost, even if they never buy even a gallon of gas. I don't mind everyone sharing the cost for a public good, such as a park, but gasoline is a product whose price should be equal to its cost. And, to aim back at the original topic, Hillary is **** Cheney in a dress.
