I actually found I could convince some people that their American car would not run on metric gas.

It's still only worth about a dollar a gallon.

Over taxation and price manipulation by the speculators triple the price at the pump.

If the assholes in DC wanted to do something...anything, to help the economy and the hard working folks...they could rein in the noted excess "fat" attached to the price to the consumer.

I'm not holding breath

We had an issue around here when it first went over $3.00 a gallon. The pumps wouldn't go over $2.99 for some reason. They started pricing gallons on the signs, but the pumps were set at half-gallons. It got confusing.

There is really no reason for gasoline prices to be what they are, other than Americans have been duped into feeling good about $3.00/gal., when 12 years ago, or even fewer, gasoline was still under $2.00/gal.

Storms, politics, and greed, brought gasoline above $4.00/gal., and now we're complacent. America depends on affordable energy, which is not the direction we're heading

I paid $3.82 for premium this morning in Louisville, Ky. Got a 10 cents per gallon discount with my shopper's card, though.

And do not forget that the U.S. exports hundreds of thousands of barrels of gasoline daily.

Funny to revisit this from a year ago with fuel now less than 1/2 the price it was. And why again? GREED
