    The Army Corp of Engineers just turned dowm Conoco Phillips application to drill oil in NPR-A on the North Slope of Alaska. The NPR is the National Petroleum Reserve, so thank the corp for your high gas prices on the west coast.

    You may also thank your West Coast politicians for those high prices.

    The US can't afford to sell low priced gas to its citizens. Our national debt is being paid in part by most foreign countries from the sale of oil to the US. Kennedy had that agreement signed in the 60's. The only two countries that did not agree were Iran and Iraq.

    And...what American product can you think of that costs less to buy than a foreign country's product? I don't think oil would be any different!

    Compared to most of the rest of the planet, fuel is a bargain here.

    Stop complaining; it's not going to go back to the good old days. This is how it is from now on!

    High oil prices should reduce CO2 emissions and help solve the Global Warming problem. Many of us in the South and East are now suffering form Global Warming and we seek relief.

    Guy's/Gals,

    Unfortunatly, the environmentalist have all the ammo they need for the world's stage. The Olympic's are getting ready to start in Vancouver and they had to truck in snow because of the unusually warm temps. I'm sure the campain will be restarted in earnest once the Olympic's start.

    Hate to burst any bubbles here but global warming AND cooling is a natural phenomenon. We may cause it to happen a little earlier than normal but it's just a split second in the scheme of this planet.

    The reason for high gas prices is to get all of us to drive mopeds. If you start out in April you will make it to the Grand by the time it starts.

    Hey Pat Ireland, Come on up to Northwest Ohio. We have several inches of snow on the ground and ALLOT more on the way. Come on warming so I don't have to shovel.

    Mike- I do strongly support global warming. For the last many weeks, the term Sunny South poorly describes my home in Virginia.

    Gas (natural gas) prices are heading down. They expect them to be much lower for the long-term.

    Natural gas is also used to produce some manufacturing products such as PVC pipe, etc. With less manufacturing going on, demand is down. There also are more wells coming on line. Ron
