    Pretty short and sweet blogged article, but did anyone else find this surprising?
    No, not at all. I don't think the figure .07 cents is correct. Big Oil talks "OPEC" costs per barrel, but 1/3 of the barrels comes from your own US oil on leased federal land, virtually free. It only costs .34 cents to refine a gallon of gasoline from 2 gals of crude. The by-products profits from the 2nd gallon pay for all of refining costs, plus more. ie. plastic additives, gas additives, motor oil & lube oils, pesticides, etc.

    Note: Keep that in mind when discussing Nationalizing US oil and selling for $1.00 .

He could save tons of money by getting a compact European car from that era. My 2000 VW Polo goes 18ish km per litre, and a modern European compact car goes far far longer than that. A modern Ford Fiesta goes 47+ miles per gallon according to Ford UK.. yes petrol version.
    Like everything else, you get what you pay for. My ride is 2005 300 Touring, V-6, about 15-16 mpg, and that is in solid comfort and full luxury. Of course, what makes gas expensive is how much you drive, and I only have 16,000 miles on my car.

    Yes and no.. depends on what you mean by "luxury and comfort". My SEAT from 2005 has automatic gear, cup holders (yea!), radio/CD, automatic windows, and is full of electronic crap I never use. It goes 40ish to the gallon. And it is very comfortable, can seat 5 persons comfortably provided they are not all size large.

    Did it make up for what you're paying for gas and food, now and in the near future? Hope you don't have any smokers in your family either. He raised that tax as soon as he got to the WH. BTW, most smokers make less than $250K.

    Gov. (good hair) Perry raised cigarette taxes too by a buck a pack.

    Barb - The executive doesn't control gas and food prices. As for sin taxes, I thought most conservatives were for personal responsibility? Don't wanna blow your wallet, quit and stop destroying your lungs, that's how I see it.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    That's what the left is hoping for Whovian. They want us to regret what we drive so we'll be nudged into a vehicle and life style they prefer.

    Peak oil? What the hec is that? We are finding new oil and technoligies to get to it like we never could before. If we are at peak oil it's only because we aren't tapping into our own resources. We also have over a hundred years of natural gas. Also,
    Why are liberals constantly comparing us to other countries? We aren't other countries, we're different and I like it that way, don't you?
