      Ralph, may I suggest a Harley Davison Sportster. Under 10 Grand and typically gets 50MPG. Not to mention owning a piece of "Americana".

      I have been to Europe several times. I know I am spoiled driving a gas guzzling BMW. If i complain then i will go buy a mini Cooper. End speculation on oil and gas drops a dollar.

      That's it, I'm moving to Venezuela today!

      Wait, isn't that where that maniac Hugo Chavez rules?

      I'm not stepping foot there.

      OK, Iran it is.

      Wait, isn't that where that nut bag Mahmoud Ahmadinejad rules?

      Never mind.

      And they drive much more fuel efficient vehicles. Higer gasoline taxes are the main reason for the price differences at the pump.

      Prices are higher in other countries because people there drive much less. America is one of the worst providers of public transportation in the world. Just like health care. In other lands people also don't jump in the car to go half a mile to the corner convenience store for a six pack. They walk, ride bycycles and use public transportation FAR more than spoiled, lazy, self-agrandizing Americans.

      Don't try to give the impression that we have no cause to protest. Please tell me you're being sarcastic.

      It's around $4.10 in Michigan. It's 30 miles each way to get to Lake St. Clair and my sailboat. I'm still spending a lot on gas. Guess I need to get a motorcycle!
