I guess I’m going to have to finally do my project to run the truck on propane.
Mumblix, I watched quite a few circus people switch over in the late 70’s (the Carter I years). They found out propane gives your engine less power, you get less miles per gallon and a lot less places to fill-up. The first two are pretty well documented and the third only affects crazy lifestyles choices.
High gas prices are not high gas prices when a democrat is in charge because “big oil” is Obama’s friend!
Yeah I know it’s far from ideal. I just like having the option. I did a conversion on my old Bronco where I could switch between the two. The old truck was just too old and rough to be a daily driver. I’d like to try it on the Explorer.
If I was smart I’d buy an old diesel Mercedes Benz and run it off waste vegetable oil.
They can’t even feel it when their sh*t comes back to bite them. You can add the middle east that—and every WTF thing that happens every day---
Fuck propane, I’m buying pigs and switching to methane.
APO RUNS BARTERTOWN!
I think all of the wheat we sell middle eastern country should be priced according to the price of oil. Oil goes up 50%, wheat goes up 50%.
Not the difference between prices in an expensive urban area such as Washington DC vs. the price for the average price of gas nation wide.
Gas prices in Chicago are still about $.50-$.60 lower than what they were at the height of the Iraq War and Bush’s war of terror.
Sorry Toad, it is Obama’s Iraq war now, but at least back then people had jobs and could afford gas.
And I was getting pissed that it’s 3.25 here in Cajun country and I’m less than an hour from some huge refineries.
Yea, TOAD, but Nancy’s in DC.
Mumblix, there’s many, many folks here in Mississippi running diesel made from used cooking oil, mostly in 1 ton Fords. We’re the fried chicken capital of the world. And yes. the exhaust does have that Chicken Shack smell. Makes people do a double take on their first whiff.
I wish we could make a car that runs on liberals. Or toads. Or Korans.
Several lifetimes’ worth of fuel, any way.
a car that runs on liberals
Bob1 - Wookie is going to ruin that when she makes them all skinny. Won’t get nothing useful when we render them.
Uhbamas are all alike - don’t believe in energy and take the fun out of life.
A vehicle that runs on toads would barely be good for short hops.
Bemember last time gas prices rocketed and teh precedent said it happened too quickly? He wants it to happen more gradually, like a frog toad in a kettle who doesn’t know he’s cooked till it’s too late. That way they can force America further into economic decline and into the fiction of alternative energy.
We have plenty of domestic resources available until an economical Mr. Fusion kit is available to the average person. Let’s use them.
Right, until the Republicans destroyed the economy and ran it into the ground and exploded the debt and deficit...Partly because of the war in Iraq.
What does that have to do with anything? Her price chart is the national average for gas...which is cheaper in Mississippi than DC for instance.
Toad, gas will always be cheaper in Mississippi than in DC or any large metropolis for that matter. That’s just simple ‘supply and demand’ economics.
What I find odd about that chart is my brother in Massachusetts is paying just about the same as I am paying here in east central Mississippi. So where are those #’s coming from? Do they have a fecal odor?
