Another point on why current gas prices are BS.
2008 Honda Civic Si - Turbo K21 [700-800hp depending on my mood) - 11.49 @ 134.18mph while spinning 24.5" slicks, granny shifting and not double clutching.
1997 Acura Integra GS-R - Turbo stock block B18c [450hp] - Fast enough
Actually the response of oil prices to the dollars value vs. other currencies supports high crude oil and therefore higher fuel prices.
The argument that oils imports should be cheap regardless of the valuation of the dollar vs. other currencies is BS. Ifv the value of the dollar is half what it used to be and other currencies remain strong the price of imported oil should double. Clear and simple.
On another note, some innovative students at UCF are making their own biodiesel. (There is a local group in CT doing the same...)
I'm thinking of setting up a rig to brew fuel in my garage and pick up a used diesel vehicle...
Whats next ?? European Ford Duratorq turbo-diesel in a ZX2 ??
Some places topped over 4/gal in san diego. My dad paid 4.03/gal for regular to fill up his 2004 Dodge ram 1500 with a hemi... YIKES
People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.
Yikes for over 4 dollars a gallon. i paid 3.50 today for a gallon of gas.
Crude oils prices are the product of supply and demand, and we can't ever get our fill, so they just jack the prices... I would imagine that eventually, when people start slowing down on fuel consumption in the US, prices will plateau.
I supsect this will occur around the time when alternative fuels start to gain popularity and become less expensive, and oil producers will be forced to lower prices to stay competitive. Who knows, maybe we'll even see what happened in the 80's. They saw we were getting interested else-where, and the prices dropped through the floor.
I'm not too up to date on what happened in the 80's.
I'm not either, but I'll summarize my possibly flawwed information:
1) OPEC cut supply (or just didnt have it), jacking prices and making big lines.
2) Researchers start looking into synthetic crude oil from coal. Costs are high, but demand would be met.
3) Crude oil supplies return, dropping prices again.
4) Synthetic oil gets nixxed.
I remember gasoline at $0.75/gallon.
My car is a collectable according to PennDOT
My car has had two owners: Ford Motor Company and Me
2000 S/R FSP build: APC shift knob, LED tails, zx2 sticker on the rear bumper, Silverstar headlights, blue spark plug wires, optima red top battery, Magnaflow muffler, and some lowering springs.
Read this article, puts it into perspective of why U.S. gas is so cheap.
08 Civic Si...VTEC - all the lag, none of the turbo!
My mom just paid $3.52 and when she pulled out from the station they had changed the price while she was pumping. They dropped it to $3.42.
She's pissed LOL.
