whatever we're so fuckin awesome we get to complain about shit no matter how good it is

america, fuck yeah!
9 years ago
ya, because we should be paying 4+dollars a gallon when we have our own oil reserves!!!
9 years ago
Assholes like the Magic Negro think we "cant drill our way out of our fuel problems" is like saying you cant eat your way out of starving or sleep yourself out of tiredness.
9 years ago
...we cant drill our way out of our fuel problems

youre ignorant and gullible

Our coal reserves could power the world for 200 years... We have oil and natural gas too... Why should something like "price" even be an issue? Fucking politics man!
9 years ago
Its just a big game...in the end the government wants to bleed everyone else dry so that they become dependent upon our reserves and we have them by the balls...

Fucking Venezuela.

hitler did the same thing with food and his people.....made sure it was cheap for them so they would love him
9 years ago
Venezuela produces lots of oil, and their companies are nationalized, this is the reason.

Chavez isn't like Hitler.
9 years ago
fuck that, I dont think I would want to use any Venezuelan gas....I have already seen what watered down Mexican gas does to an engine
9 years ago
wow. mexico is the 6th largest oil producer in the world? how the fuck?
9 years ago
fuckin bastard dictator chavez fuck,fuck,fuck
9 years ago
If your country is part of OPEC you have cheap gas. Sort of like .99 taco's.

Ha, Chavez was elected far more legitimately than Bushitler was.

In NZ we pay $2.20 per LITRE but of course on the bright side our water is free but water won't get me to work !!
9 years ago
That comes out to about $8.80

Per gallon, I mean

China and Mexico should be lower than the U.S. - they are both drilling our fields off Florida.

Thank you EPA fags...

i cross over to mexico to buy gas sometimes....just got to fight off the bandits

Yeah, but at least were "being green"!


*vomits profusely and repeatedly*

ahhh yes youve been convinced by the oil companies who are the soul reason you arent driving a fully electric car right now that offshore drilling will lower your prices

/pst the prices are being raised for no reason whatsoever
9 years ago
i am on the waiting list for that new truck made by Phoenix car division....and i am a conservitive...go figure
9 years ago
sorry...the truck is electric...that might help
9 years ago
Kojach, I'm just bitching about the green thing and havent been convinced about anything. Since you brought it up though, yeah, we probably all could be driving electric cars by now, most electricity comes from coal fired power plants, then you and the granolas could bitch about the coal companies and the hippies could pass new laws keeping them from digging new coal mines... same with ethanol and corn.
9 years ago
Where's fucking hydrogen cars at?
9 years ago
being bought up by the oil companies so they can tell us how dangerous and expensive they are.
9 years ago
Third world countries are getting ass raped by the ethanol craze. They are starving because corn prices have skyrocketed.

Shit. We need to get off oil, and pronto. But first, we need to drill, and build new refineries. The current gas crunch is having a MAJOR impact on the economy.
I want a hydrogen car NOW please!
9 years ago
i was talking to brem, roland

hippies will complain about everything they would rather us not use electricity and fuck animals, but if the human species is going to survive indefinitely we have to stop using coal, natural gas and oil all together eventually

thats what we should be working for, to create sustainable energy sources with no effect on the environment, not lowing your gas prices 5 cents a gallon
9 years ago
Kojach... Have you always been an idiot, or were you brainwashed by some pot-smoking chic who sucked your brains out the end of your penis one night while you two listened to Nirvana songs? Cause really, you sound like one of those fruit-loopy morons who complain about "big oil" but lack a clue. I've worked for "big oil". I know how the pricing is done because I worked for the execs and was privy to things you are not allowed to know. Next time you want to blame someone, first ask why the government taxes fuel, raises the tax and then says its "big oil" fault while they drive vehicles provided to them, powered by fuel provided to them, by american taxes. "Big oil" as you call it makes less money a barrel then the government taxes off that gallon of gas! The only way "big oil" can make money is to farm a field and bank on the millions that is might yield, and while they do that the EPA is taxing them for "any" infraction of environmental damage done - even if nothings done. There's just a flat charge 'just in case'. And I can't even begin to tell you how much money "big oil" spends on "green" issues. Damn the dollars. Plus grants to local communities to "green up" the area.

Yes, our EPA stops us from drilling so the fields are tapped by China and Mexico. US companies get shafted thanks to pussies, like yourself.

Yes fuel alternatives would be great, but OPEC blocks what they can. OPEC aint big oil, it's ragheads that want the monopoly. They have tried for many years to manipulate the american politics to get their way. "Big oil" as you call it, fucking idiot, has to cater to OPEC because when they try to use other sources, say Britain, the EPA some how steps in and finds some reason to block the trade and there's always a politician backing them up. Why?

So Kojach, who's side you on? Arabs who fund terrorism and hate America and privately bribe our EPA and politicians to stop the USA from standing on its on - or the USA citizens who'd like to be more independent from enemies and find more solutions to fuel problems but know they will have to use oil in the mean time?

Take your bottom lip, yank it over your head, and swallow. Best thing you could ever do you.

blah blah blah i feel like i just watched an exxon commercial, please take a tissue youre crying oil all over my shirt

you said lots of stuff...but it was all discredited by making an argument comparable to the anti-drug commercials a few years ago claiming buying weed funds terrorism, not to mention the fact you allegedly worked for oil executives

you missed the point which was that the people you claimed to have worked for are the reason you arent driving a car that doesnt run on gas, which is true everyone knows it

and you didnt even address the prices, which are being raised for no fuckin reason while your former bosses sit around with the arabs and congress and all point fingers at each other, you think its the arabs, i dont. either way id like you to go into more detail about how my not agreeing with you makes me a terrorist, this should be good
9 years ago
i just dont understand why gas costs so much in the usa.maybe its my 12 mpg suv that i put oversized tires on it so i can run over anything.why do we have to pay so much.for gas why?is it ever going back down ?i dont think so we had better figure this out before no one can afford to drive to work then what?
9 years ago
lol @ thread.

I agree with Kojach all the way through this. And we can't fucking stand each other! But, you know, he's right...

So judging by this we should invade Mexico, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and just about any other Middle East shit hole, beat them sensless and take their oil.

Or get used to walking to work.

You forgot Iran lol.
9 years ago
no they might finally get rid of the jews for us

bitches, we helped them and what do they do? sell jets we gave them to china
9 years ago
Mako, last time I checked, Iran counted as part of the Middle East
9 years ago
Is that true, kojach? I'm not calling you out on it - just never heard of that before. Cheeky fuckers.
9 years ago
yeah we gave them some jets and they sold designs to china that were identical to the jets we gave them
9 years ago
I believe gas prices are the way they are because of global competition? no? its not gas running out. im not that educated on this but i doubt, politically wise, that they are being raised simply for profit.. atleast not at this magnitude. This is basically fueling our recession. if greed alone was the reason for these prices im sure shit would be going down. but i dont know.
9 years ago
it is greed, its simply to make more money

whether its just the arabs, just the oil refineries or both i dont know but i do know there is no legitimate reason for the prices rising like they have for the past 6 years
9 years ago
Gas prices won't go down no matter where we drill, and how much we get. Oil companies inflate prices and control the supply. I've NEVER seen prices go down since I started driving in 1996. No reasion to believe they'll go down in the future, either. They might go down a bit to appease people, but they'll gio right back up again.
9 years ago
Big fucking corporations are shovelling their gaint dicks up peoples assholes big time
9 years ago
I would disagree. Opening up ANWAR, the Florida Gulf Coast, the outer continental shelf, the oil shale lands out west and other areas to oil exploration and recovery, OPEC countries would immediately put downward pressure on prices in hopes that they could derail or forestall the new American effort.
9 years ago
Plus. It would be great if we could build a shit ton of new refineries as well. It's like a fucking bottleneck with all those different grades of fuel we currently have. All we need are, what, three? And then diesel? THat's it. We dont need 30 different grades of fuel out there. You can thank the environmental wackos out there for helping to throw in a wrench.
9 years ago
The upshot of it all is that the middle East will run out of oil and the US will have delayed drilling for so long that it, suddenly. becomes the number one producer...

Arabs can't think beyond their turbans. No foresight. America, however, will have shit loads of oil when we've spunked OPEC's supply. And then she'll say, "Of course there's a need for 30 grades of oil...and we will price it accordingly."

Or whatever.
