Living in NW Michigan, we see some of the highest gas prices in the nation. Our prices can rise 35 cents overnight at times. When they drop, it is by mere pennies. I realize State of Michigan taxes are imposed on gasoline but the variance doesn't make sense. Our prices are currently 3.79 for regular unleaded and yet in Florida gas is 3.22 - that's a huge difference. It used to be that gas stations here raised the price before the weekend to make more money from the tourists that visit all summer and winter, but surely they realize they are punishing the taxpaying residents as well.

Tyically you can't put more than 10% etanol in gas. Once you go over that it is bad for the car. It's alcohol base does damage to the catalytic converter.
You pothead! Just kidding. I agree with you. SO many other sources for energy. I suspect the oil companies have purchased many patents over the years to remain a necessary evil.
The only real alternative that is economically viable is Natural Gas. It's cheap and we have alot of it in the good old USA
Yes, Landmark, a lot of people in this country have natural gas...it's from all the Taco Bell and other fast food we eat.
