Do you think the American economy would be boosted if gas and oil prices were lowered?
I know I would have extra spending money every week if I wasn't putting it into my gas tank. Would you contribute to the economy too?
Yes, but the price has to be dropped significantly for an extended period of time. For example, down to $3 or even $2.80 per gallon for at least 2 to3 months.
Which country in the two continents of America are you referring to. I expect that if gas and oil prices were lowered anywhere the central heating would be cheaper giving most people more spending money.
I agree it needs to be lowered significantly. I think a fair price would be no more than 2.79 a gallon.
Im referring to the USA
It's not the cost of fuel that's killing our economy, it's over spending. You can't continue to spend more than you take in, that goes for schools, post office, local governments, businesses and people in general.
