Gas consumption in the US is down about 10%. But Chinese consumption is skyrocketing.

I agree completely. It is more complicated than it appears. My point is create options for yourself. There have been those who have stated that people should take responsibility for their actions. I agree. This is one place to take responsibility. If you don't like what you pay for gas don't buy it. Create options. If you pay for it don't complain. You made the choice.

The other day, I squeezed 6 limes rather than use the lime juice in a bottle. The lime juice would have been easier, but I chose to do the squeezein myself.

Personal accountability is almost extinct.

yep, find it absurd when people that really don't need a truck have a huge pickup truck and then complain about gas prices...... makes no sense to me, I drive a fuel efficient but cheap vehicle and gas prices are an annoyance but hardly break the bank and I drive a good number of miles, but getting 36+ mpg helps a lot.

I see that here. I live in a mainly rural area but most of the 4x4 gas hogs, never leave the city limits.

I can see that there is situations where a larger vehicle is a necessity such as an independent contractor that needs a large PU to move heavy equipment. But, what is the purpose of an Escalade? Some claim is protection from accidents. With what? Another Escalade? Or that Toyota Yaris next to you that you can't see? Who's at risk?

I have a large gas hog for work, it's necessary, but drive a car that gets 33 mpg as a daily driver.

Increased drilling for oil in America does not necessarily mean lower prices of fuel at the pumps. An analysis of 36 years of gasoline prices and U.S. domestic oil production shows no statistical correlation between the amount of oil produced and the pump price. U.S. oil production is up 15% since February, 2009 and fuel prices since then rose from $2.07-a-gallon to $3.58. The nation's producing oil at the same level it did nine years ago when fuel prices were just $2.10-a-gallon. The analysis used Federal Energy Department numbers for regular unleaded gas prices adjusted for inflation to 2012 dollars, oil production and oil demand
