    Yesterday I saw regular unleaded for $1.99 a gallon. Drill baby drill! The US is now the largest exporter of oil in the world. OPEC is sweating bullets because they know WE have the strategic advantage in oil not them. That, my fellow Americans is huge, not to mention that low oil prices help poor Americans the most. :113:

    It was $1.75 three weeks ago so two dollars a gallon is ok but cheaper is better.

    /---/ How much of that 15 cent increase was due to taxes?

    /——/$2.27 on Long Island- due to NY gas tax. But it’s worth it because they maintain the roads so well

    Gas went up 33 cents here in the last week. 2.44 and rising. I thought the increase in drilling would lead to more oil here and less oil exported. How about we keep our oil?

    /——/ There are many factors involved. Not all oil is suitable for gasoline. High sulfur content bring one reason.

    /——-/ Libtards who screeched “no blood for oil” for a decade now want to coddle a black hearted dictator so they can save 30 cents a gallon. Typical
