    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

    They did drop.....for to $1.49/gal after a high of $2.10. It
    has risen back to $1.76/gal now. I had heard the same expect
    prices to drop as well. Oh well! :(

    Or everyone could quit buying these big ass vehicles and go easy on the
    environment. There isn't unlimited resources on this planet. Crank up the
    gas prices. I like to hear these people bitch about spending $40 $50 to fill
    there suv's.

    am going to go to work everyday just to feed the goverment more tax money! I
    may even buy H2............yeah 7 mpg.

    But the old station wagons are no longer made, so that leaves SUVs for
    loading the kids and doing the bulk shopping.

    you mean like, our president and vice president?.......nah, they don't have
    a bit of interest in big oil.
    btw. now that the oil is flowing again in Iraq why aren't prices dropping?

    BJ's warehouse has regular for $1.44/gal. $1.57 normally

    NY metro area (not NJ, lol)

    I'm glad that the prices haven't gone up since your country stopped the
    shooting. When the first shots were fired, our price for gas started
    dropping. Was at 89.9 cents a litre ($3.60 a US gallon), went down to 69.9
    cents a litre ($2.80 a US gallon) and has since only moved a couple of cents
    at a time. First going up, then down the same amount the next day.

  13. How long has it been since your country has bought Iraq oil?

  14. Maybe if Canadas' socialist govenment stopped all the free handouts,
    maybe your gas prices would be lower?
    social welfare programs = high taxes = very high fuel taxes
    just a thought

    And maybe, the politicians would have a bigger paycheque (this being much
    more likely than, us getting taxed less).
    Brian Smith, Jun 30, 2003
  17. politicians will always have a bigger paycheck, that's one thing here
    in the states all politicians always agree on, but if you cut some
    unneeded pork from government spending your taxes will go down, and if
    not then you need to elect politicians that will cut your taxes,
    remember its your money and they work for you,, not the other way
    around im pretty sure the Canadian government can start cutting pork
    spending by cutting funding for every immigrant that comes into your
    great country with their hand out asking for free housing and free
    medical care,, even though they just got there and didnt pay a dime in
    Canadian taxes, maybe then your gas prices would start to come down

    Well, I was born here, but, my great grandparents came from Europe. So, I
    have to say that I don't have a problem with us allowing people to immigrate
    to our country. And, it's only right that they have their health taken care
    of, to prevent them spreading any diseases to the rest of the population.
    Gas prices will come down when we manage to put a curb on the greed of the
    owners and shareholders. That is the only thing that continues to keep the
    price of gas as high as it remains.
