    i wish there was a law that mandated multiple new thorium nuclear power stations in every state.

    gasoline is always going to fluctuate violently while trending up overall. it's a finite resource, the easy to get oil is getting harder to get, and we are going to have to import tons of it from hostile regions as long as it remains the premier transportation fuel.

    Really? Oil companies set the price of a barrel of oil? Care to show us a link to back up that crap?

    They must be pretty stupid, then. Why end the "yearly ass reaming" right before the summer driving season begins?

    Thankfully, so many people can't afford to drive their cars and don't have a job to go to, demand is down and my gas is cheaper.

    This is awesome!

    How does a law mandated multiple thorium reactors affect gas prices?

    You mean the sort of economic regulation that will hinder small business?

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.
