Oil hits $102 for the first time

$4 a gallon...

coming to you this summer...and when it does, remember that the rest of the industrialised world already pays way more.

2 oil shocks and still the united states didn't learn. europe taxes the fuck out of petrol, and cars with large engines. that's why driving enthusiasts already have a choice of small, fast, interesting cars...

if you really want to complain about gas prices, take a drive across europe.

I'm sorry to say it, but Americans are too self-absorbed a lot to ever figure out and appeciate how many luxuries we have. I've been waiting for years for some national realization and subsequent responsible behavior about the environment. No, we think Europeans have it all wrong with their taxes and public transport. We'd much rather have people homeless and without health care than give up our right to consume as much oil as possible. After all, we own it all. We are the center of the universe and are entitled to use all the resources we want.

Sorry for the vent.
