Are you ready for $7 a gallon gas?

To meet the Obama administration’s targets for cutting greenhouse gas emissions, some researchers say, Americans may have to experience a sobering reality: gas at $7 a gallon. Isn't this just what we need to help the economic recovery.

  • Its becuase the major car companies own the gas companies. If they are going to be forced to make cost efficient cars, something theyve had the ability to do for quite some time they are going to make us pay through the nose for gas.

  • $ 7.00 a gallon, it is going to get to the point that you are not only working for daycare but working to put gas in your car to go to work. I am not ready. Thank goodness a gallon can last me as long as 2 - 2 1/2 weeks.

  • Just part of Obama's master plan to destroy capitalism for socialism. The press and others laughed when he told Joe the plumber that he wanted to spread the wealth.. They laughed when he said he was going to change America.


    You people that voted for him and did not pay attention to what he was saying should be hanging your heads in shame.
