It amazes me how fast and how often a gallon of gas can change in price...but for the life of me I can't remember when a gallon of milk went up at the farm gate... OOPS sorry ..just another farmer pondering out loud.!

Your right... there seems to be the idea that both commodities have a bottomless pit...Lord help us should the two somehow mix when we finally get down to a certain level in the world supply...undoubtedly two very essential items in the life of humans, but useless to us if they are mixed...

it amazes me that we don't seem to have any concern over energy sources or supplies.

i think the next major nation wide problems will boil down to fuel and water.

Thats the truth, the people who scream and
hollar because gas prices go up and make it
more expensive for their 8mpg Dorf
Expedusion mommymobiles.
I think the current statistic is that if we could
get the average up to 35mpg we could cut our
oil imports by half.
I'm doin my part, Dakoter gets 20+ day in, day
out. When my wife's car (25+) finally quits
we're gonna look long and hard at a Toyota
Prius hybrid car(50+) I like the Toyota for
reasons other than just being a hybrid car. If
one of the big three American car companies
could learn to make a small car with as much
interior room, fuel economy, and reliability as
the Japaneese(sp) can they'd sell as many as
they could make. I've driven a dorf Focus,
Chevy Cavalier and the Prius and the Toyota
is more comfortable, quieter, more powerfull
and better on gas. Yes its $4000 more
expensive, but if you figure a 10 100,000mile
year life with gas at $1.25/gal it all works out.

We've got alot to learn about fuel efficiency in
this country, and I don't just mean cars.
