    Yesterday here in North Carolina I saw the price of regular unleaded gas at $2.91 What will happen next because of the rise in gas prices? Thats right food prices will rise the economy will sink.

    It's $3.03 here. A gallon of 2% (store brand) milk is up from $3.14 in early summer to $3.57 today.

    It's amazing that the prices stayed so low the last couple of years. It makes one wonder what is really controlling the price in this country.:eusa_whistle:

    Gas is around $10 a gal in Germany......wonder why?

    Well I don't really wonder....but I'm wondering if anyone has figured it out.

    Heating oil's gone up 50 cents ($2.91) since I filled the tank on October.

    When you're buying 275 gallons at a time, that half buck per gallon adds up pretty fast.

    Do recall that this current depression directly preceded the last outragous gouging we went through.

    If we have another run-up like that one, whatever progress we've made in shoring up the economy will go down the crapper.

    I have noticed that fuel prices would go up and then fall back down, in the past. Now Fuel prices do not do that anymore. They stay where they are for a short time and climb higher.

    And the government keeps trying to tell us that there is not an inflation problem.

    We are headed towards Carteresque Stagflation, which is the economically logical result of Obamanomics.
