If it happens, kiss the so called recovery good buy.  It will be a depression.  Anyone believe this guy?  I have followed him in the past and he has been dead on.  He knows the price of oil ahead of the curve and he is calling 150 to 200 bucks a barrel.

I just dont understand the whole oil thing
they are making ike 34 billion dollars PPROFIT and still the prices raise. Cant the government do anything about it. I mean darn they can fix the national debt. they can give 25000 families a new car and it wont even move thier bank account. Meanwhile we have to pay for these rich scumbags as they continue to raise profits. How much friggin money do they need?

oil has been kept beatifically low for years due to political and monetary subsidization to several oil producers...also, it will drive ALL PRICES UP, either way, I dont care...change is good...maybe something positive will happen becuase all of it.

Unless they squash the commodity vampires I imagine it will keep going up.

The effect of current oil prices on the economy is not factored into the current stock market valuation.

Yes, I think it will hit $200 a barrel without any problem.  The national average for a gallon of gas will probably be around $5 this summer.  It's absurd and makes me wish I had bought Exxon stock in the fall when it was in the $50 range a share.  It's now hovering around $85 and is just going to continue to rise.

Hopefully this will wake everyone up and we will use our own resources to a greater extent but I doubt it. The next few years are going to be tough on almost everyone.

5 bucks a gallon aint garbage Europeans pay more already.

I think Toyota and Honda are scummy for builiding such big cars.  American cars are always giong to be big but the Japs arent building cars with 1.2 liter engines like the ones which sell the most in Europe.  They make them to be barely more feul efficient than American ones.  Go look at a Fiat 500 and ask if you can buy a similar car over here other than those smart cars.  A Ford Focus is a big car over there.

I feel sorry for rural Americans.  And rent in cities near public trans will go up.  But isolated communites will be devastated even more, everyone outside major cities will be relying on the government for handouts if gas goes too high.

5 bucks a gallon would be OK if the Japs built their cars over here like they do in Europe.  IT will take a year or two but they should shrink and get 35-50mpg. 

 

But they arent, they build the cars to get about 30 now and try and keep them normal sized so they are equally nice to the American ones.  When Toyotas and Hondas came on the scene they weighed 1/2 as much as american cars.  Now they weigh the same.  fool, they build them to be equal in size and try and convince people they are more feul efficient.

Also there are less hybrids being made in 2010 and 2011 than the years prior.  Its not worth the extra money for one when you get decent efficiency without it.

Any american who drives one is a friggin lowlife scumbag anyway be a friggin man and buy yourself something nice from the General with leathers and a v8

 

Consumerism drives America if you want things to change start spending money on stuff you like and encourage others to do so too.  1.2 litre engines will emerge and people will be able to handle 5 bucks a gallon.  It wont help the small communities where people need to drive trucks and stuff decent distances though rural areas aren't going to have thier economic status improve.

 

AND darn THE JAPS THEIR CARS SHOULD BE LIKE SMALL EUROPEAN ONES NOT THE SAME SIZE AS MIDSIZE FORDS AND CHEVYS COCKSUCKERS!!!!  If they were rinky dink little peices of garbage (there just midsized peices of garbage) we would be golden for whatever raises were coming up as poor peole could go out and grab a 95-2007 model.  Now only rich people who can afford new cars will be able to drive.  darn THE JAPS.  ITS THEIR FAULT FOR DESIGNING THIER CARS TO darn AMERICAN MANUFACTURERS.

 

Most of this country deserves to be slaves to chairman mao and china anyway fuckin sheep.  People will lap up Charlie Sheen and think we are a liberal society bullshit America is more conservative than ever the way Cops bust balls to raise money is disgusting most people in the legal system did nothing wrong.

The problem with this country is the fact that EVERYONE drives a Honda Accord.  THe stupid old person who stops in the street for no reason these days is not in a Buick, they drive a friggin v6 Honda Accord.

 

You deserve to be paying 100 bucks to fill the tank on that, and that is what you will pay when gas hits 6 or 7.

 

Other countries have a road tax for having a big car.  A 1995 S Class 600 series v12 Benz might only cost you 500 pounds/euros to buy but to register it it would cost 10x as much a year to get your license plate as your 40k 2011 C class.

See if the civic was the normal midsized honda it would be ok.  Say Honda produced the cars they do in Europe or Japan for America and made a car called the honda "Tiny" for instance that had a 1.2 litre engine.  IF this was the case regular non wealthy people woukld have an option to fill thier tanks for 50 bucks when it costs 100 to fill up the accord.  Not an option though, if your accord costs 100 the civic costs 85.

I've had two Accords and I loved them both.  They were great cars and both got well over 30 mpg.  Sorry you're butthurt that not more ppl aren't driving American cars, which contain more foreign parts than you'd believe.  Who the hell do you work for, GM?

Shut up girl.

 

JohnAlz I dont work for GM.  My grandfather did got a job in the factory when he got off the boat.  My Grandma outlived him by 20 years.  Pension checks from GM never stopped coming.  I don't give a darn if you have an Accord, good for you.  Thing is I bet half of the women you have dated have drove one, and chances are ifyou have old people on your street who have purchased a new vehicles over the last couple years chances are its an accord and not a Buick.  Not enough people on the other side of the fence.

 

GM has done what it has to as has Ford.  GM was profitable last year.  But they have had to react to person automakers mimicing their cars for appearance and then having moderatley better gas mileage to put them out of buisiness.

Europeans have been driving cars like this for decades,  Your registration cost depends on ONE THING... the size of your engine.  Putting something like that on the road is under 50 pounds a year.  An S600 would be about 3-4k.  Thats why they make cars like that more so than the gas itself.

 

Have Honda or Toyota produced automobiles like that since the 90s?  A Toyota in the 80s looked like that in relation to an Impala like a 2011 Fiat 500 looks in relation to an Accord.

No, they only design cars similar to the ones US automakers make and then try and put them out of buisiness.  If the Japs had been making these over here for 20 years gas hitting 6 or 7 bucks owuldnt be a big deal, a poor person could get a car that costs 50 bucks to fill instead of the 100 it took in thier accord.

Look at the Fiat and other cars Europeans drive and ask why the Japs havent built similar ones in the states.  They are waiting for the demand to become ridiculous for small cars so they can sell loads of them brand new and make tons once the oil scare hit.  THe Hybrid thing is over they arent making any of those shits it was a load of crap charging your car.

Scummy scummy Japs not making  1.2 litre engine cars for the US audience and specifically keeping them the size of American cars which have always been bigger than what the rest of the world drives b/c of our infrastructure and roads being strait in many places.
