    Default Gas Prices, wicked or no?

    Ok this applies to like people who can drive but seriously what is up with gas prices? I paid 3.95 a gallon and that is one of the three cheapest around here (other two are 3.89 and 3.86 which I saw after I got gas much to my dismay) So I was wondering for those who drive. What do you all pay for gas?
    Did I tell you to look at me? No? Good then get the hell away from me.

    ~$9.00/gallon - ouch man, they really need to lower the gas tax over there. That's pretty brutal.

    It's about $3.95/gallon here in Massachusetts (Northeast US).

    Yes, the price of petrol is getting ridiculous. But we were all expecting it were we not? I was.

    In MA, it's about $3.95 a gallon, but in my town(not gonna mention it), I think it's about $3.90, which I'm okay with, considering I don't drive, it's my parents that do I heard from a source on another forum, that China is getting all the oil

    Oh, Hi-deeki, imagine... your kind not eating raw fish! ^_^

    This problem has been coming for years. We're running out of oil. Oil is a finite resource, and as it drains, petrol prices rise as a consequence (supply and demand, basically).

    This is not going to change. No matter how much people cry and pout, there is not going to pop large quantities of gas into existence. It's time to look for a renewable alternative. It's been time to do that since the 1970s, when we had our first brush with this undeniable fact: Fossil fuels are finite.

    There are quick fixes that postpone this a year, or a decade, but that's all it will do.

    Why not make solar powered cars?
    But do not put your cars into the garage people, otherwise your auto-mobile will run out of light energy on the A1 motorway.

    Current solar cells aren't effective enough. But they'll get there. You'll probably want to use hydrogen fuelcell cars instead. They can potentially run of electricity. Like a battery car, only much less inefficient.

    But cars are pretty much dying. It's not going to be possible to drive like we do today in the future. Much more mass transit. Cars are going to be luxury, like private planes are today.

    Anyway, in Sweden we pay just under 9 $ / gallon for gas. So quit whining.

    Apparently you can run a car on vegetable oil. Thats a cheap way to go. Some people here in the UK have actually done it but they were caught and complained at by the Police. Probably due to the fact that buying vegetable oil from a supermarket is not giving the greedy government their money no doubt.

    The price of diesel in America is quite absurd. It's the easiest to get from crude oil and yet it's the most expensive of all.

    Oh. Over by the corner, everything is priced above 4.50USD.

    Start complaining when you've got the same prices we've got here in Sweden: 9 USD / gallon.

    It's hard revolving between school, work, and home. And the high gas prices aren't helping much. It's about $4.50 - $4.80 the gallon around here, and it's sucking up all my money! I know that's nothing compared to some high prices in other parts of the world, but it still really sucks! I have to refill my car every other day in order to get where I need to go, and it's a vicious cycle that I fear will never end.

    Like Eris said, we should've realized that oil was eventually going to run out, and we should've discovered a renewable alternative a long time ago. But oh well, that's procrastination for ya. =/

    I'll probably end up riding my bike everywhere for now on... or just walk. -.-'

    You can run a car off of vegetable oil and/or grease, yes. But it's not a replacement for gasoline. There's no way you'd be able to get enough grease to replace a significant amount of the oil used for everything.

    Current solar cells aren't effective enough. But they'll get there. You'll probably want to use hydrogen fuelcell cars instead. They can potentially run of electricity. Like a battery car, only much less inefficient.

    But cars are pretty much dying. It's not going to be possible to drive like we do today in the future. Much more mass transit. Cars are going to be luxury, like private planes are today.
    The problem I have with hydrogen is that like everything it requires more energy to produce then you can get out of it, but unlike everything else you have to use electricity to crack the water in the first place. It's better to just leave it as electricity and and run an electric car with it, you know? Most people don't have a commute larger then it's range.

    Also, because I feel like gloating:
    HEY GUYS I SPEND 6 DOLLARS A WEEK ON GAS

    I feel really smart, having bought a Vespa two years ago.
    Ehhh, I dunno if I'll stick around. We'll see.

    That's a really good idea, just downsize your vehicle.

    I'm talking to you SUV owners.

    True! That's actually a really great idea! But I'm thinking more like Suzuki or Kawasaki. Vrooooooooooom! >.<

    You clearly don't live in New York City. Mass transit here is largely reliable but crowded like a delivery truck crossing the border from Mexico. You can lose virginities you didn't even know you had during rush hour it's so packed.

    STILL BETTER THAN PAYING FOR GAS, THOUGH! *cackle*

    The problem with that isn't mass transit itself, but NYCs obviously poor management of it's mass transit system.
