If you own a car, you need gas to run it. In purchasing a vehicle in today's economic climate, the price of gas has to weigh heavily on ones thought process. I mean your whole investment for a car makes no sense unless gas is affordable. Which begs the question and an answer of the title of this post
HAVE CAR...WILL NOT TRAVEL
For those of us who own cars, I use mine sparingly. I also car pool with others to go to Costco or run errands. In addition, I organize my business so that I get a lot done on that day and in certain areas. The price of gas has changed the way I think
BLOOD FROM A TURNIP SYNDROME
I feel like we are all being tested to see how much we can afford. People have only so much money for necessities, responsibilities and pleasure. The price of gas is fast becoming a luxury item and we all know we can do without luxuries when things get tight.
OWNING IS EXPENSIVE
When you add insurance, gas, registration and maintenance costs up, the price to own a car is questionable. People in Europe know this and use taxis, bicycles, and motorcycles to get around. Owning a car is risky and expensive over there. Is that where we are heading?
THANK YOU GODZILLA
I wonder we would be if it wasn't for the dinosaurs. You see they roamed the earth for about 120 million years and then upon their death was absorbed by the earth. Add a few hundred million years and we get oil called fossil fuels all over this planet just waiting to be used. But, we are running low and I don't see any more dinosaurs making more
THE STUFF IS HARD TO GET TO
Supply and demand is at work. We are certain that vast amounts of oil exist under the glaciers found in Alaska. Drilling for it is impossible because of all the earthly movements daily making it impossible to sink a shaft. Other countries only have so much to sell too. When you stop and think on how all of our industry is oil based, it then becomes alarming.
WE HAVE SOME SAVED UP...BUT?
I know America keeps an oil reserve, but it is not for the public as much as it is for the government and all its needs to be kept running. They will not release those figures, but at the rate we consume the stuff, even that wont last long. All governments suffer from this.
Alternative sources like solar and wind while attractive will only serve the areas in which they are built or that are the closest to them. Everyone else may or may not have access....At what point do you stop paying exorbitant prices for this stuff?
Presented for your consideration and thank you
