Only 2 Fuel Stations in my town have any fuel. Which means they've put up their prices, 'cause they're arseholes.

Why do only 2 fuel stations in my town have any fuel? 'Cause of a blockade in attempt to lower fuel prices.

It isn't working. Well, not yet anyway.

Anyone else in the UK having fuel problems?

I love the Americans attitude on fuel prices, like it is never the fault of those f**king huge 4x4's and Ultra Pickups? Hmmm less than 10 miles to the gallon, that's efficient! If it dosn't change soon we will be just like the UK and trust me you don't want to do that.

Yeah, Ice. Wait 'til you get a car and have to start paying for gas. It adds up, trust me. My little S-10 gets about 18 miles to the gallon, and that's what I consider to be a gas hog. But then again, just look at all those dopes out there driving Ford Excursions that get 8 miles to the gallon. Sheesh. No wonder OPEC loves the US.

Yeah, that stuff's mostly alcohol anyway. I bet my truck would run really good if I put that in the tank! I'd have to replace the fuel pump every two days, but what the hell. Oh, and btw Slk, I've got more useless posts than you.

You yanks sure are funny! Hey, Canucks aren't that bad either. Every time gas prices go up 0.01 of a cent (about every 3 minutes), you'll here one big cry of discontent rising up from the land...

Seriously, how many Excursion owners actually carry anything but a sweaty, soccer player or a coupla bags of grocery? It's pretty much worthless off road. Towing capacity's ok, but you can just get a truck. And the SportTrac? I heard it's key demographic is in the 50+ range

That's because only the old Ford devotees still drive Fords. All the rest of us realize just how much they suck. Except my mom. She wouldn't let me help her pick out a car, so she bought a Crown Victoria (POS). We've spent enough money keeping that damn thing on the road to buy another used car.

Ya Ice. Bikes all the way. I quit driving my truck . . . PERIOD. And it got 30 miles to the gallon. I'm just going to let the insurance expire this month.

I hate driving.

I like your logic, Ice. However, I don't like your choice of cars. The German cars I can deal with, but the Lincoln? Hmm..... It's just a rebadged Crown Victoria. Cadillacs have more room in the back anyway.

On the contrary, all Lincoln Towncars are rebadged Crown Vics. As RM is so fond of pointing out, American cars are crossplatformed. This is the case with the Towncar. The other Lincoln models, I'm not sure about. Anyway, you're right. I'll stick with Corvettes too.

Trust me, they're the same. The only difference is the body panels. I know what you're saying, though.

UPDATE
Big Bad Bill Clinton has ordered 30 million barrels of reserve oil be released to eleviate the fuel crisis here in the US.

COOL!

UPDATE
Wannabe prez Bush deplores the action saying he needs it to fuel WWIII when he takes office and the "We the people" of America should pay for the fuel that the oil companies feed us!

BULLSHIT!

I'm not one of Clinton's biggest fans, but I agree with quite a few of the things he does.

Lower gas prices = Kewl

That means I can start puttin' Premium back in my truck without it creating a black hole in my wallet.
