Remember that if all the power plants and vehicles start changing to natural gas that is also going to raise the price it, and anything made of PVC in the US. PVC in the US is made from natural gas, not oil like many think.

Oil went from $17 a barrel in 1999 to $137 in July of 2008,, can anyone tell me who was the president during that time? Dah????

And $1.89 gas was Bush's fault, as stated by Obama when he was running the first time. Now who took it from $1.89 with $137 a barrel to $3.69 with $102 a barrel oil?

I guess Obama could bring gasoline back down to the price Bush had it when he left if he drove the economy into oblivion like Bush did with no regulation on the banks,,, yeah there is a plan, stock market went to 5000, $800 billion bailout to banks "too big to fail" ,, thats why gasoline went so low when Bush left office,,,, still can't see why you guys think thats a brag point? I am much happier now then I was then and do much better economically, especially the farm. Oh and stock market 15000.

The higher the apex, Jay, the farther the fall. The fall will not hurt you, but the sudden stop will.

Schwing and a God awful miss there Jay. Pull a muscle on that one? And exactly where is that "farm"?
