I just paid $417.9 for regular uleaded at the Chevron station in North Portland, Oregon. Gas is a few peenies more, here in Vancouver, Washington.

In Mexico it is about $2.40 a gallon. Maybe we should have nationalized our oil many moons ago like they did in Mexico. Food for thought!

Here is Kansas (eastern part of State) it's 3.99 to 4.30 that's unleaded, and premium and super unleaded. Then diesel is running about 4.75 a gal.

Venice

"remember in Europe they have great mass public transit"

Maybe in some countrys but not in the UK, and will I go to work on a bus with the great unwashed, NO. Both trains and buses in this country leave a very lot to be desired and thats if you even have the choice outwith the "capture areas".

Live rural, and its the car or nothing... as travelling on a bus or a train is not an option, they dont exist, well maybe a bus every 2 hours that takes 3 hours to do a journey I can do in the car in 45 mins to get to work or back.

Where is the incentive from government to give up the car?

We also live in a rural area. We don't have buses and Trains or Metro links, "Cable Cars" are only in the big city "St. Louis", so we don't have a choice but to drive. But thats the punishment for living outside the cities. But I like the nature.

The government isn't going to give anyone any incentives. That much is very clear. The politicians are going to keep being politicians and doing nothing for the voters.
Why ?
Because there is no accountability and the voters vote them right back into office.
Just look. Congress with the democratic control has an 18% in the opinion poll. Then it is speculated that democrats will gain about 10 or so more seats this year.

So what does it take for the American public to wise up ?
