Just received this in an email, interesting fodder for the mill however, it is really interesting that there is so a difference in diesel prices, (which have a direct impact on food prices)
$1,000 per year.
That’s how much EXTRA you are coughing up as gas prices exceed $4 a gallon.
Do you believe President Obama is to blame for these prices?
Can he do more to lower them?
Newsmax.com, one of America’s leading online news services, is conducting an urgent national poll about rising gasoline prices and President Obama’s policies.
It’s crucial to make your voice heard, and Newsmax will ensure poll results are promptly sent to all major media outlets.
Newsmax reports gain national attention with results cited by the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, CNN, ABC News, Fox News, CBS, MSNBC, Meet the Press, and other major networks.
While news max may be a good publisher the real problem in our dependence on oil as a fuel, allegedly is the auto makers, for years big oil and the auto industry, (now the unions too don’t forget that) are in charge of just about every large corporation and many levels of government from trash pickup to many other things.
This creates many issues for the modern politician.
So what do you do, this is one of the problem we have an we had better find a solution, because right now, we still have people out there driving V8 Gas Guzzlers, and they do not care, that they are both polluting and reducing the available supply of fuels.
It is a problem, but the very real facts remain, how can we depend less on fuels when we have a bureaucratic red tape machine that is fighting against itself every step of the way from permits, to inspections, and everything in between.
The truth is that what they are doing is not working.
The truth is that Diesel should be 20 percent less than gas not 30 percent more.
When you imbalance the system, in favor of the gas distribution system, you end up with trouble.
