    Sweet! As the economy declines and we're past summer driving season gas should continue to fall

    Black marketing again I see.
    (Psst! Wait a few days, me and the boys will have some at half price. Keep it under wraps).

    It's those damn speculators manipulating the price again.

    Wrong.

    Depending on the state in which you live, you actually paid anywhere from $1.40 to $1.60/gallon for that gasoline. Taxes (Federal, State, Local, Sales, Environmental) account for a fair chunk of that price.

    I often ask peeps, why should something that is so crucial to our daily lives be as cheap as dirt?

    Where is the incentive to produce more of it? Where is the incentive to conserve?

    Do you want dirt-cheap gasoline today or do you want gasoline at any price tomorrow?

    I'll contact the government tomorrow and ask them if I can buy gas without paying taxes.

    And if gasoline taxes are abolished, how will we maintain highway and bridge infrastructure? Where do you think these taxes go?

    Is your motive cheaper gasoline or are you just cheap?

    Gasoline tax-collecting bodies make more profit from your purchase than do the people who explore for/drill/produce/refine/transport/market the stuff.
