    In case any of you missed them, Jay Leno has came up with some good ones, four of my favotites are, I thought we won the war in Iraq, I purchased a five gallon can yesterday, I think it will be a good investment, gas is so high that Exon hasn't spilt a drop all week, and last, the oil companies will be putting Vasoline dispensors to help you stick it in. Anybody else hear any good ones? FRED

    Sorry no jokes just a question, I have my own business and drive a van fully loaded everyday and am wondering what does an electrician/plumber get for a service call out where gas costs $4 a gallon? Hopefully insurance is cheaper.

    Well guys you have to keep your sence of humor about it. The man has been warning us since what, 1973, that oil was getting tight and was going to get expensive. The price will drop back some in November. FRED

    Yes Phillip, I seen it. and it's still relevent, but I'm not so sure it's humorous because it's the truth, and only seems funny because we laugh trying to fool ourselves that it's a joke and can't possibly be true. Like them ghouls who lived in our closet when we were kids. We laugh now as if it were a joke, but... Well enough of this psyc BS. FRED

    Well for me I gave up my gas guzzling V8 Expedition and now drive a 4cyl Focus. What a difference. Now I have some more to spend on this great hobby of model railroading and of course to pay for the soaring price of electricity to run it.

    Right now in Muskoka (center of Ontario). Gas is $0.78 a litre or about $3.25 per gallon.

    Local contractors are charging $60.00 per hour average. Some charge $50.00 plus $0.25 per KM (0.6 mile).

    What is really bad is that on the 29th I heard a business stock
    report on CNN...
    In the report they said Oil barrel prices were at a five year low.
    Guess it costs a whole lot more to make gas these days.
    Or maybe they're doing like the gas crunch days. Hiking the price
    because they want to.
    I had a friend who's father worked a tankership in during that time.
    He said it was a month before he could see his dad. The Tanker
    couldn't unload because all the storage areas were filled. Even
    had one blowup because it was to full. He said his dad had to
    sign some stuff about talking about it.

    It's just another cog to get the split of the Haves and the Have
    Not's. No middle class.

    At the New York World's Fair in 1964-65, Chrysler showed a car which was very easy on gas consumption. Here is the engine.

    I heard that the lowest gas prices were in NJ with $1.52/gallon. The highest gas I heard of was somwhere in the Sierras at about $2.80/gallon.

    Belg- Is it really illegal to fill your own gas tank in NJ?
