Gas hit 1.20 tonight...

HAH....

Save me the "It's cause oil's running out" excuse, until the oil corp's are no longer making record profits!

America blows ass!



P.S. Does anyone seriously know a good source for BMW Diesel swaps? I'm really considering putting in an M51/57 in my car now, but i wanna know if my tranny would bolt up?

It's not 1.20 a GALLON, it's 1.20 a Litre. You guys pay less than we do!

I fogot the canadians get raped like the germans, price of 93 in munich today is a 1.42 (euros), but yeah i was talking germany. in the US the whine, but in reality they still leave their ****ing SUV's running for 20 minutes outside the bank or whatever, so they cant be feeling too bad.

Crude oil reached an all time high of $117 and change yesterday. The price is set on the world markets, based on supply and demand, buyers and sellers. It has nothing to do with our oil companies or America.

Its last at $112.89, down $1.97 on the day.
