    $1.59 will barely have any impact at the pump. The $30+ change since last summer had a big impact.

    On the plus side...Egyptian men and women are likely to soon enjoy the freedoms and 'democracy' known by Iranians...

    Every dollar increase in the price of crude oil equates to about 2 1/2 cents per gallon on the street ex taxes.

    Why do you think the increasing transfer of wealth from America to foreign powers will barely have an impact? Each price increase incrementally decreases the average American standard of living.

    Which is barely an impact. Assuming that a person fills up with 20 gallons a week every week that translates to about $26 per year.

    Each incremental increase in the price of fuel has a real impact on Americans who live on fixed incomes.

    Why do you think that it is transfered to foreign powers?

    Plus, why do you always move the goal posts when your arguments are shown to have no merit?

    By completely undiscernable margins.

    Thats what I'm sayin!!!

    I dont know why this is so hard...sheesh...

    the OFFICIAL Us position SHOULD have been: We agree with your cause of democracy and support the PEACEFUL transition of power. We UNITE with the calls to engage PEACEFULLY with Mubarek and will SUPPORT you in the dialogue to bring about democracy and free elections in Egypt. We FULLY support the egyptian government in maintaining law and order. We will insist that the Egyptian ambassador arrange for a sit down with representative sof the UN, ME, and oppositions parties in Egypt within the week or we will withdraw all support from Pres Mubarek. We MUST insist on supporting Egypt in the PEACEFUL transition to democracy. Rioting and violence should be queled accordingly. Good night and Allah Akbar.
