I just paid $4.119 a few days ago. At Costco. The nearby Arco was about the same. Further away Arcos are higher per gallon, Go figure. :| And did grocery shopping this week, too. All prices were higher than last week due to the cost of gasoline having gone up. Nobody is driving less. They don't have much choice. We used to have in this area an excellent public transit system. Buses. Trains. They have all eliminated routes and changed schedules and raised cost to the point it just as cheap to drive. If you have a car. For those who don't have cars, they are paying higher prices as well. Not only for transportation but for food as well as just about everything else. It's all an integrated web. You raise gasoline, it raises the cost of living for just about every other commodity you buy. Not luxury items. But basics like food.

The lowest gas I've seen this week was for $4.02 per gallon at the lowest octane level. If you are paying less, good. Prices seem to be going up almost daily.

Just think.... if gas got up to $10/gallon, we wouldn't have to deal with those pesky poor people at restaurants, parks, movies, on the roads, etc. They'll be too poor from the correlating food and consumer goods price increases to be worrying much about taking their kids out anywhere that requires a vehicle. I'll be so much safer, as will my family. Not to mention those poor people, since they wouldn't afford to be able drive, anyway.

They can be pesky with their older, slower, smoking cars blocking my way when I want to get somewhere faster.

And if you think additional taxes will then be redistributed, then I wonder if you live in the US, cause that ain't gonna happen.

The poor have to drive where I live, as in most rural areas. And I'm sure they'll appreciate everyone's concern over their safety by putting them off the roads.

Like we both agree, if we get the poor off the roads, me and mine will be safer, as will yours. And of course, the poor will be safer, and happier for it, sitting at the house.
