fuel economy

all this talk about trying to get better fuel economy is (unfortunately) going to turn into how much some of you got for your trucks when you sold it do to when it hits $7.00 a gallon & cant afford to keep fueling it.

somethings got to happen here to stop the rising cost of fuel!

And to think that in our OWN country right under our feet we have more oil than all of the middle east combined. It's all just a big conspiracy for everybody else to make more money. Check out these links it'll blow your mind. It just shows how smart our government really is. Sorry to be blunt but I just hate paying $100 bucks to fill up my truck now.

What really drives me nuts about the rising fuel prices it the way it is (or is not) being reported. I remember a few years ago when fuel prices started going up, it seemed that ever other news story was about the "administration" being in bed with "Big Oil" -

Now the administration is setting policy, openly, that is causing fuel prices go up and there isn't a peep out of any of the National News outlets.

My work depends on my trucks getting to the job... fuel prices get passed on to the customoer, but it's still not fair... and beyond fuel, metal prices as well are out of sight as well.

As they say, keep going to work, millions of others depend on your generostity...
