Gasoline prices are ridiculous

June 9, 2013

To the editor: How much longer are we going to put up with getting ripped off? I do a little traveling to see my children in Northern Virginia. I just recently came back from the Washington, D.C....

And gas has been STAYING around $4 a gallon for years under Obama. Not so under Bush (even though the left accused him of keeping gas prices "high" for his "buddies").

But, that was not what I asked, was it?

You DO have a difficult time answering questions. Why is that?

Please try again.

Your posting a chart does not mean you read it. It certainly doesn't mean you actually ansered. In your own words, core, what was the price of gasoline when Obama too office. And, if you would, tell us the difference.

When people quit making un-necessary trips and only use gas when absolutely necessary, that is when gas prices can be considered too high.

core, are you having difficulty finding that gas price? Perhaps it is your sources. Can I suggest some RELIABLE sources?

@DeeKay2 What do you consider a trip that is not necessary ? A doctors apointment ? A trip to purchase groceries ? What about those poor people who have to go back and forth to work every day? There is NOTHING we can do to alevieate the high price of gasoline , so just bend over , grab your ankles and pay through the nose.

We could convince our president that the Keystone pipeline would reduce gasoline prices, AND create jobs.

We could do away with most of the different "designer" blends of gasoline the left insist be made.

Can you tell us about the tar sands debacle?

Do you know the safest way to transport crude oil?

How do you propose transporting the coal liquid?

Promote hybrids? Didn't your president spend hundreds of millions, or billions, of taxpayer dollars to do just that?

How'd that work out?

YOU drive a hybrid, correct?

Why are you always afraid to answer questions? You made certain clajms. I am only giving you an opportunity to support them

I never said liquification is a bad idea. You made that up. I asked how you proposed to transport it. Read mypost again. I was quite clear. We'd still like you to answer the questions. Your answers could help support your claims.

Never said that.

Now, can you answer my questions, or can't you.

They really are not that difficult.

And folks will learn something.

You tried hard not to answer, but you finally admitted that coal liquification would use the same method of transport as the Keystone Pipeline, which you oppose.

Thank you. You made my point.

Now, care to tackle the other questions? Here, let me refresh your memory:

Promote hybrids? Didn't your president spend hundreds of millions, or billions, of taxpayer dollars to do just that?

How'd that work out?

YOU drive a hybrid, correct?

These are really not that difficult questions. Come on, give it a try. I have confidence that you can answer them. Don't be afraid. They really are easy questions.

No problem. Call your attemts a red herring, if you would like.

Now, care to answer the questions? Would you like me to repeat them for you? They really aren't that hard. I'm confident you can answer them, if you try.

All of those questions are relevant. They all pertain to your claims. The fact that you can't, or won't, answer them tells us that doing so would negate your claims. Or you are too dumb, but I honestly feel it is the former.

The ones you claim to have answered, you did not. For example, you never did tell us if you own a hybrid. I would propose that you do not. If you HAD answered, you will provide a post where you either said "yes",or "no". It was not an essay question. It was a simple yes or no question, still unanswered.

More later.....

BTW, if you continue asking that same insipid and irrelevent question, I'll continue ignoring it and consider it trolling.

Oh wow troof has me frightened that he will think I am a troll. Oh Wo is me.

At 40 thousand dollar for a Chevy Volt and it's maintenance costs will take you 29 years to pay off with your gasoline savings, unless gas prices hit the 8 dollar a gal. mark. The other Hybrids don't fair much better. They will never be better unless a big breakthrough in battery tech comes along. Plus the price will never come down in fact it is already going up.

Solar and wind generation are similar high cost of equipment and very high maintenance costs make them impractical for the normal person even if you get the equipment paid for by the state. Unless science takes a very big leap these will not be viable sources of energy or transportation. Frack frack frack, burn that coal, and open the Keystone. Global Warming is a money making fraud perpetrated on stupid sheeple.

"I've answered all of your questions save one - the most recent where you challenged my assertion that Hybrid promotion is successful."

"I never said i answered that."

"""YOU drive a hybrid, correct?"

"Sure""

You seem to say whatever suits you, even if you contradict yourself over and over. How can we believe anything you say?

As for your hybrid, it matters if you claim a strong need for hybrids, but expect OTHERS to do the real work of buying them. It is relevant to the debate.

Moteman, you are right on. You get it.

When renewable energy can stand on its own, when we don't have to throw hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars away, then they are viable. Not before.

In some instances, for some applications, they are the right answer.

All, or almost all of the renewable energy companies Obama threw money at have closed their doors, which means our taxpayer dollars given to them is gone. That should be an eye-opener for some, but it is not. They are still willing to throw YOUR tax dollars away for THEIR ideals, but not willing to spend a penny of their own.

As evident here.

"But not only is that obvious to everyone else"

Obviously, it is you who are confused. Just look at the "Agree" and "Disagree" votes. You THINK you are right, but that darn reality keeps messing you up.

Given that, I figured you were all talk and no action on the hybrid thing. Looks like I was right.

"So NOW when I say that I won't answer it and you try to make me look disingenuous by showing that I did answer, it shows a lack of character on your part - not mine."

You said you didn't answer, then you said you did answer.

What it does is show you to be a liar. Again.

Re-read your posts, then re-read the votes. Then it might become clear.

Wrong. AGAIN. You never answered my question on what the price of gas was when Bush left office. And probably a few more.

By the way, have you heard that Bush is more popular than Obama? And it's going to get better. Reality wins over time.

Since core was unable to tell us what the price of gas was when Bush left office, I'll tell you.

It was $1.61 per gallon. Gas prices have risen about 275% since Obama took office! If you don't know, oil companies were BIG contributors to Obama's campaign. In fact, Obama was the major recipient of BP cash.
