I think its a great idea, but not sure its gonna help, what we need it truckers to completly shut down DC, get so many trucks in there that, normal city operations come to a halt, not just there but every state capital in the country, but who knows what good it would do, there was just a strike here a couple weeks ago, anything come of it....no, because there are always the independents who will keep driving, because if they stop for a day it will be the end of them, so they just eekk by one day at a time.

You cant tell me politicians in the country dont get a kick back from big oil anyway, prices dont hurt them, they dont have to pay for their own fuel or anything else for that matter, they just collect the taxes off every gallon sold.

Sorry for the rant, this subject just pisses me off

What does this have to do with bio and vegi?
Who is gonna ban it? They can't ban it in the first place...its used to cook 50% of what you eat.

Economist are predicting $250.00 per barrel by 2012...the same economist that predicted 50.00 per barrel in 2004 and the same ones that predicted 100.00 per barrel by the end of 2007...they were right both times.
250.00 per barrel equates to 10.00 per gallon at the pump.

Self fulfilling prophecy maybe?
