What would you charge us for it? You'd need to be comped for it obviously, so about... $3.75/ gallon?

Government subsidized.

personally I think we should have government subsidized gas. A hefty tax on the poor would go a long way.:supergrin:

When your government is that energy independent you can do that.

75 per gallon. That's what, 1973/4 price, here???

Gotta see this. . . .
Bring me back 10,000 gallons.
I have cash. (Or, do you prefer a card?)
Oh, and deliver it to my house, about 13 miles south of Joint Base Andrews.

I remember seeing it for 26 cents in the gulf in 1990.
So even their gas prices have tripled.

Don't forget to levy a heavy usage tax on those folks who drive those itty bitty 'lectric cars.

I bought my first new car in 1976. Regular gasoline was 50 cents a gallon. I remember when I went on a test drive, the idiot salesman actually put 50 cents into the car.

It was still 50 cents a gallon in mid 1978, when I bought another car. By Christmas, 1978, the price of gasoline had doubled to $1/gallon.:faint:
