Back in the 70's when I was stationed in Germany, gas there cost $3.oo a gallon. We bought it by the litre and the price seemed ridulous. I think the price per gallon here was still under a buck. Americans have always been spoiled ( myself included) by cheap and available fuel, without realizing the real cost. One of the few things Bush got right was his statement " America is addicted to oil." As a country we use it like there's no end to the supply. Just look at what people drive; Big ass pick up's with nothing ever in the bed, suburbans and excursions to haul the dog to the groomer, 4wd suv's ( stupid uneccessary vehiciles) that never leave the pavement. When we waste any resource, it's likley to become more expensive , especially when were addicted to it. Even a junkie knows that. OK, I'm done preachin. Sorry for the rant.
