    i think "Project OneFaastC1500" has turned into "Project Bling", bling machines can be fuel efficient.

    I get giddy when it dips down close to $3 here in Cali, which is rare. :rolleyes:

    They are trying to raise cigarette taxes so high here it'll be about $8 a pack. :rolleyes:

    What's next, sex tax?

    Exactly... If I don't take the exhange rate into account, we are paying 3.79 CND per US gallon for 87 octane :(

    And don't worry trustyK5, we're right behind ya :( We are at 1.00 a litre now, expected to jump to about a 1.30 by June :(

    Thats 4.23 US per US gallon :(

    just under $2.50 'round here. I buy my gas at Costco... saves me about a nickle a gallon. Over the course of a whole year, it adds up. I also get 1% cash back by using my AmEx. :) I agree on the price of gas though... annoying. We need to start drilling in the US again. There is huge amounts of oil off of CA, FL, LA, TX... and lots of land-based oil in Alaska. Shale oil refining tech needs some government research/funding too. If we could make shale oil into gas, cheap, we could tell the arabs to drink their damn oil. I get tired of their cartel games. Personally I think the US, Canada, Ukraine, France etc should build our own grain cartel... jack the prices up to the moon on grains sold to arabs and then we'll see who's boss. Oil is cool, but it ain't gonna do shiate for ya if you're starving to death. :thumb:
