Default Fuel prices aren't dropping

Why aren't fuel prices dropping like expected? There is a web site that
shows a graph of fuel prices since 1995. I thought after the war we would
see a decrease, but regular gas is up 10 cents a gallon from the same time
last year. See it at www.storydata.com

Dropping? Your fuelprices are heaven compared to ours. We pay about ?1.15 a
liter, so that's about 4.35 a gallon. I guess that's about usd4.00 a gallon.
And you are complaining? What should we do? Start whinig??

Count your blessings and be happy they **** you over like here in the
Netherlands(Holland).

Yeah, well, the distance beteen my house and the grocery store is
probably equal to the distance across your whole country. You have to
consider scale when you compare gas prices...

well, the US and Canada ( I'm Canadian) are somewhat caught between a rock
and a hard place. We all know burning oil is not a good thing for the world
at large but it is necessary. Our economies are so dependent on cheap oil
that it would cause immense difficulties to move to one that consumed less.
The less well off would be penalized because they would not be able to buy
new cars that use less gas. At the same time, because there is cheap gas
everyone wants an SUV whether they need it or not. Trouble is that when
these SUVs get old only the less well off will buy them as they will be
cheap. Like it or not we are caught in a bad spiral and we watch as the
environment goes down the tubes. Cheap oil also promotes disposable products
that are terrible for the environment too.

-Dropping??? why should they drop? you really believe that once the oil
companies raise the price that they will drop it? that is like that 'the
check is in mail' joke that Bush just told...

Here in Tucson AZ, the price of diesel is about 1.50 to 1.65 per gal at the
chain pumps. I go to a truck stop, TTT, where it is 1.32 a gal, so somebody
is making big profits....

Hey Tom,

Prostitution may be legal over there, but that don't make it FREE, and drugs
instead of "Green Stamps"?

If it's so I'm there!
