it is inevitible that the fuel prices int his country come on par with the rest of the world sooner or later. the industrialization of foregeign economies makes them a competitive consumer of petroleum. US isnt the only buyer at the table any more. the buying power of the US coupled with the government using the military as its battle axe has allwoed us to see the lowest gas prices int he worl for a long time.
i have no issue with paying higher gas prices.....IF the wages can be increased proportionately. at some point the government will have to subsidize fuel costs mainly because of the lack of public transportaiton: high speed rail, train, etc.......
Joe the difference is we have the resources to sustain ourselves and prevent gas prices from being driven over $4.00 a gallon. We also have PUNK leadership that wants to exhaust other nations resources before tapping ours. As a result the middle class and lower class, but primarily the middle class get hurt by this.
