    Obama's never said that.

    I said it though. I blame Americans for their gas price problems. Whiny, lazy Americans who drive big fat land yachts and live in McMansions 100 miles from their offices. They drive up prices for the rest of us too.

    It's called personal responsibility, and it's supposed to be a conservative thing.

    Not as bad as 2008, but higher than any other year in recent memory. I'd call that out of the ordinary. Doubt we'll hit $4.00 (US avg) like some are speculating, but $3.50+ seems likely.

    Are they though?

    I've got news for everyone - in the long run, gas prices are going to keep going up no matter what we do, who is president, how much of our own tiny supply of oil we drill, etc. As long as our thirst for oil is so high and keeps growing, that will happen. Oil is not renewable.

    Do you have anything except for tidbits and scare tactics to post? We know relevant content is beyond your capacity, but do try to pick it up a notch. For the sake of the rest of us (due to your post volume).
    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.

    That was a story from their Chicago affiliate... I wasn't clear on whether they were speculating a $4 average nationwide, or $4 in Chicago. Illinois seems to have some pretty high prices in comparison with the rest of the country:

    Several quick things:

    First, some of the links provide old data. The most recent Employment Report data showed net job creation of 162,000 jobs in March. The Conference Board's most recent survey of consumer confidence saw a rebound to 52.5. The overall trends in the data have shown improvement. The economy has resumed growth. The Labor Market stabilized and may be in the early stages of job growth.

    Second, headwinds, particularly in the commercial real estate sector, persist. Oil prices have not risen to levels that would likely choke off economic growth.

    Third, the CBO's discussion of the nation's fiscal situation concerns the longer-term. It does not point to a situation where there is an imminent threat of a debt crisis.

    Finally, the IMF's forthcoming World Economic Outlook (to be released April 21) will add to the growing number of public and private reports showing a U.S. recovery. Furthermore, it could project 2010 real GDP growth of +2.5% to +3.0% for the U.S., with perhaps ~2.5% +/- 0.25% growth for 2011 (under the assumption that fiscal stimulus would be winding down, interest rates would remain low, and the financial system would continue its slow recovery).

    Needless to say, there could be some wildcards e.g., an external shock that could adversely impact the U.S. economy. But right now, there is mounting evidence that a cyclical recovery is underway even as some weaknesses and headwinds persist.
