he was hoping for 10 dollars a gallon since his family and him are in the oil industry.
9 years ago
It's almost $5 a gallon here.
9 years ago
4.59 here. I work real close to home so I dont drive allot lucky me. Well I baught gas and paid about 20 cents more than I did the previous fill up. FUCKEN RIDICULOUS. THE DOLLAR IS WORTH SHIT NOW and Bush is too busy with his new world order plan and the shifting of powers. Oil companies get record sales and the dubai project are just proof that the oil companies are fucking over the world.

In spain it got up to 1.20€ a liter

Why should Europe and America bow for thoose fuckin arabs, we go there and kill them all like we have done for hundrends of years. It always work.

I just paid $2.15 a gallon at GetGo.

I say we invade Canada. That's where all the oil is.

1.51€ (2.32$) for 1 litre.

I thought I'd save some gas and use my mountain bike to get to work, got there this morning and had to push a car out (no fuel). I pushed a bit too hard and tore my calf muscles, now I'm off the bike for 2 weeks and have to drive everywhere cuz I can't walk. :((

urk we gave you all our oil already...we have none,also take all the bud too
9 years ago
sir you are canadian aren't you?
canada has the second largest oil reserves in the world (first being saudi arabia)
almost 9x more oil then the united states has actually....

9 years ago
Yeah but the problem is its unconventional reserves we have here. It takes a huge amount of energy to extract, but nevertheless yes we do have the second largest oil reserves. But all this to say that we still pay on average 30 cents more per liter here in montreal than in the fucking states!!! And we export most of our shit to the states!!! wtf is wrong with that system!?!

just being sarcastic yak, over the consumption the US has on canadian resources
9 years ago
I remember reading Canada has 2nd best tap water quality in the world too. Might explain why I love Niagara Falls so much...the Canadian side, of course.
9 years ago
and to make matters worse to compete with the US on consumption of oil out of canada china is putting money into extracting oil in northern alberta...now there goes the fuckin neibourhood that should suck us fuckin dry

show some proof.

well cheney is certainly getting paid for it and bush wouldnt go along unless he was getting paid, thats how washington works these days

the last bit should say "President_Dick_Cheney"
9 years ago
Ah yes, the evil dreaded Halliburton. There is nothing new here, and it's all been debunked a thousand times over. Next.
9 years ago
how are you going to debunk the fact that he was vp of a big oil company before becoming bushs running mate???

and what the fuck do you think hes going to do next year? retire? ha
9 years ago
Who gives a shit? So are you saying, that if you've been a VP of an oil company, then you cant become VP to the President of the United States? Interesting.
9 years ago
wow youre so fucking twisted

im saying if the voters looked at who they were actually voting for theres no way in hell someone in charge of a multi-billion dollar corporation would get elected

its just retards like you that base their vote on a letter in parenthesis next to a persons name
9 years ago
and so what cheneys about to get thrown in jail for leaking the cia agents name, which is the 1 reason to beat all for electing obama because he wouldnt give cheney a pardon and mccain would
9 years ago
Wow interesting twist. However, you are wrong. By the time Cheney was in office, his involvement at Halliburton was over. So, let's say the CEO of a company like Bill Gates for example, stepped down and then ran for VP. Are you saying this man should not be elected by the people on the sole reason he was a CEO at one point in his life? Seems silly to me.
9 years ago
And I always thought it was Richard Armitage who was the "leaker." Well because, Richard Armitage admitted as much to Robert Novak. LOL! It's funny people are still going on about that whole non-issue, but it's understandable. People are tools, and you fit quite nicely up the Donkeys ass Kojach.
9 years ago
no people shouldnt vote for bill gates because he doesnt know shit about politics, people shouldnt vote for cheney because oil companies have rules the world for over 100 years and they will do whatever it takes to keep it that way

just because he stepped down before becoming bushs running mate doesnt mean it wasnt planned that way and it doesnt mean he isnt going to go right back there next year

i know what youre doing youre just saying stupid shit that you dont really believe hoping others will so you control them its just what the governments been doing, sorry im not as stupid as youd like
9 years ago
what the fuck are you talking about??? have been under a rock for the past month or have you heard about the former white house press secretary writing a book about shit the bush administration has done?
9 years ago
"Oil companies have rules the world for over 100 years..."


Ok. Stop. Really? Really? I mean really? Are you being serious? Wow. I honestly think you are. I'm done wasting my time with you.
9 years ago
youre a fool no ifs and or buts about it

if you cant even recognize that oil companies rule the world youre just a fool
9 years ago
Wow, it's like Meet The Press has come to Mucho! Interesting. Apologies for the interpost.
9 years ago
I love how when people write idiotic shit like: "Stop. Really? Really? I mean really? Are you being serious? Wow. I honestly think you are. I'm done wasting my time with you." they automatically think they win the argument.

K-Billy, just because they aren't directly involved with big oil doesn't mean they don't benefit from it. It's America and corrupt politicians are the standard.
9 years ago
these fuckers still goin at it

I love it when people write idiotic shit like, "...they automatically think they win the argument."


Sorry you feel that way admin. But that's how I feel. If you think I said that to show victory in the argument, that's your prerogative.
9 years ago
I bet that's his answer now. Gas is already $4 a gallon on average, and Bush'd be like, "I didn't know that!"

My president is an uninformed nitwit

Mine too :( I really hope that the next brainless puppet doesn't get in there or were going the way of the Dodo. Not that Obama will be much better, I think he is just making alot of promises that he can't deliver on.

obama is refreshing even to half racist whites because at least he doesn't embarrass the whole country by speaking...

obama already has more gaffes than George did at this stage in the race. If there is no teleprompter, obama sounds like a retard.

thats just stupid
9 years ago
You would be surprised dik. There's way more dirt on Obama than on Bush when he started into the office. That's all i'm saying.

And Kojach, you havent mentioned man made global warming yet in this thread like the perfect little moonbat loony you are. Any other talking points you care to just blurt out?

9 years ago
oh god you follow along with the republicans completely denying global warming and the effects of greenhouse gasses and youre calling me loony?

you can go ahead and destroy a planet but no fuckin way its gonna be mine so build a roket and get the fuck out
9 years ago
ahhh amercan politics...hate it
9 years ago
It's not just Republicans who deny it either. There are over 30,000 scientists who disagree with the issues put down by Owl Gore and his minions. "Man made global warming" is an invention by the anti-capitalist environmentalist's from around the world who would love nothing better than to watch capitalism fail or be taxed to make countries like ours a third world one. It's a scam of the highest order. CO2 is not a pollutant. If you think so, then you should kill yourself and every animal as well, because you are polluting the atmosphere with every breath you take. The climate of earth is changing, it has always been in change. You should not be worried about "Global warming" you should be worried about the not so random ice ages that stop by every 15 to 20 thousand years or so to completely ass rape the human species. Grow a pair of balls and do some of your own research before you by into the holy church of owl gore.

youre fucking stupid it isnt man made, the process is just sped up by man

Oh, i'm sorry, did you have anything of substance to say jamiee?
9 years ago
I won't waste my time trying to convince you you're wrong when you clearly feel very strongly. You know, K-Billy, I'd agree with you if you were right. Also, I see you have to stoop to insults about my physical appearance which shows your hyper-desperation. Post a pic K-Billy; show us what a perverted Republican, right-wing freak looks like. Probably a lot like Rush Limbaugh
9 years ago
That's funny Jamiee. I'm pretty sure I would not have "stooped to insults" if you had not said anything insulting in the first place. And dont drop the "Hyper-desperation" line. I mean, common! I'm not the retard posting my tits on the internet for every greasy freak to jerk off to. You obviously have some issues to take care of. And i dont care if you agree with me or not, or if i'm even remotely right or not. It's the internet, no one fucking cares. I will tell you one honest thing though Jamiee from this old perverted Republican right wing freak, and it's totally true. I have great girth and a beautiful dick. I know this because all the girls i have sex with tell me so. I try to tell them I am just average, but then they like it all the more. But your tits? They are still ugly. Love!
;)
9 years ago
not only was jamie funnier but her insults were better too

you lost your minuscule chance to be better when you cut off the part about insults about physical appearance making it just insults. everyone insults each other on this site thats what keeps dipshits like you coming back

either way cutting off quotes to suit you is just a dick move, you fail
9 years ago
If it's just the internet and no one fucking cares, then how does posting my tits matter or mean anything at all? Also, why should I feel the need to cover my tits just because society here doesn't deem it proper? I have no issues at all with my looks and I'm very comfortable with my body. I don't give a rat's ass if you don't like my tits; nor do I have any desire to hear about your privates.
9 years ago
Yeah, fuck society! I too have massive genitalia!

"If it's just the internet and no one fucking cares, then how does posting my tits matter or mean anything at all?"


Because, if you havent noticed, we all make fun of you. Opps!
9 years ago
Actually, nobody really makes fun of Jaime. We all kind of like her. It's hit and miss with you though.
9 years ago
To be quite honest. I didnt think to make fun of her until she spouted off. You know, kind of like how people take to you Hank. As for hit and miss.....

I guess all i have to say is.


Welcome back from your ban.

kbilly2k2, that's my username. i dont have the internet connected to my xbox, just the 360. Plus, i play Call of Duty 4 more now than Halo. But i'm not going to be on today anyway. Me and starrsky used to play online a whole lot, but she's mostly doing Guitar Hero 3 these days. That would be fun if we all could have a mucho party online or something!

well some guy introduced impeachment papers last week or some shit, but everyone says they just dont have enough time to do it so theres no use

im sure theres evidence out there that could put every single member of the bush administration in jail, if not potentially executed for treason

im really looking forward to mcclellan testifying about the cia agent leak, that should get cheney thrown in jail...if he isnt whacked before he testifies

Newsflash: We vote for president in November, and he/ she will be sworn in, in January. Theres not enouhg time to impeach his dumb ass.

maybe u should stfu, being a president isnt that easy as u might think. The usually work all day and its kind of easy to say something wrong which may sounds stupid when you have worked an hole day and tons on information.

plantshit youre fucking stupid

obama saying hes been to 57 states when he meant 47 is saying something wrong because of lack of sleep (most likely), not knowing how much your people are paying for gas is just fucking ignorance

all the republican soundbytes of obama saying something stupid is because he mis-spoke not because hes a dumbass, the same case however cant be made for bush
9 years ago
Actually it can. He just has more of a speech impediment when he's tired. Or whatever other excuse you can come up for retard D'ohBama.
9 years ago
no, no hes a dumbass. the difference is obama saying hes been to 57 states when he knows there are only 50 states, as opposed to bush not knowing how much people are paying for gas
9 years ago
In other words, STFU Planshit.
9 years ago
Wow. How viewing things in hindsight works. I think this was from the spring. Right? That's when the question was asked? Did ol Jonny S. come up with this clip recently? Or was this an old clip? I dont know. The reporter seems to be asking this question back before gas was going to be $4.

"Springtime" is the optimal word here. Hindsight is how we are seeing it? Decide as you may.
9 years ago
actually youre a fucking retard, the reporter was talking about the national average but at the time while it was $3.xx many people were paying over $4

just as now the average is $4.05 or something many people are paying over $5m, either way he had no idea how much gas costed
9 years ago
$5, where the fuck did that m come from
9 years ago
Gas "costed" under $4 for me when this vid came out in February. Wow, this is the stupidest conversation I've ever had with anyone on this site.
9 years ago
whats your fucking point? did i say everyone was paying over $4? no i said MANY PEOPLE WERE

costed is a word btw its in the dictionary
9 years ago
i think the US should have another civil war
9 years ago
maybe, but hopefully we dont have another civil war about issues like the first one, we arent fucking africans, if our candidate doesnt get elected we know thats democracy they won theyre the winners

but a civil war for preserving the democracy and preventing its corruption is more likely, id be absolutely delighted if not a single incumbent won an election for the next 4 years, the reason there are term limits is to prevent a permanent campaign but its happening anyway
9 years ago
Agreed, Kojach. Unleaded here is $4.25 a gallon...projected to reach $6 by Labor Day. The problem for us in NY is the fact that the cost of literally EVERYTHING has gone up here, in such a short amount of time. And yes, a permanent campaign is happening.
9 years ago
easy there kojoch i was only joking
9 years ago
if you dont like the oil price dont buy the fuckin oil , no one force you fuckin ants so stfu up bitches. Go have another civil war, then you can put on an extra star(mexico) on your map an sing your national antsong in spanish.
9 years ago
yeah everything nation-wide has gone up we're in the shit, people like billy dont realize it isnt about what youre paying, throughout the country prices are skyrocketing on everything, the dollars values going down, minimum wage and the poverty line are static, we are in a recession i dare say headed for a depression
9 years ago
I'm optimistic things won't get that bad, but $6 for a pack of cigs, $4 for a gallon of milk and $4.25 a gallon for gas isn't easy to afford for the majority of people in NY, most of whom make less than 10-11 dollars an hour, and have a family to support. I understand that the cost of living will forever continue to rise, but I really don't understand why it has to so rapidly.
9 years ago
i wasnt kidding, the democracy isnt a whole lot of democracy anymore, its become more like vote for whoever you want to be able to do whatever the fuck he feels like
9 years ago
thats what obama meant with the bitter remarks, he shouldnt have said they cling to guns and relgion, and i dont think they do, but the people are bitter which is why politicians are one of the most hated professions in the world just behind dentists and lawyers

everything depends on some numbers on a digital board called Nasdaq, the old where better when you traded with goods like fur ,food and weapons.
9 years ago
Aww fuck it, I only read 1/2 this shit. All I have to say is this... we are in a recession. Who's fault is it? Beats the hell out of me. Is Bush going to do anything about it? Of course not... The House and the Senate actually have to AGREE on something first for anything to get done around here. Gas prices have gone up, which means shipping has gone up, which means we're getting shafted for groceries and other necessities. The biggest problem is that the cost of living has risen by a percentage much greater than the percentage that wages have gone up. The only thing that really matters as far as voting in a president these days is what country are we going to piss off next, because our government can't pull their heads out of their asses long enough to agree so we can "fix" anything HERE. But even with all that being said... I love my country. I'd just love it more if these politicians were more worried about our economy than padding their own wallets, pissing off our "neighbors", and playing golf.

You can also thank the environmentalists for the price of gas being so high. No drilling in ANWAR no drilling off the coast of Florida. No more refineries. Huge gas taxes. Gee thanks!
9 years ago
drilling has nothing to do with it asshat we have tons of barrels sitting around and the wells we have now are plenty for the time being

but the problem is environmentalists preventing new refineries being built
