Fuel at $5.00 a gallon is already here in New York, it's because our national energy policy is a sophomoric joke that drives up fuel costs.
Is that really the current price? That's about 0.89 Euros per litre - very cheap from where I'm sitting!
Because you sit in Socialist European Union, where oil and financial oligarchs (kleptocracy) run the show.
Here in US oil and financial oligarchs has only been running the show for 50 some odd years (CFR leaders are Rockfellers whos flagmanship is Standard Oil, now Exxon/Mobil), so it isn't socialist-ized enough yet. But the way it is going it will be there very soon.
And you have yet to see the startling profits of the Wall street bankers - people who produce nothing, whos business is nothing but a bunch of computers and desks, yet who enjoy BY FAR the largest profits. Microsoft is a baby earner compared to some Banks (and NO, Bill gates is not the richest man in the world, what a joke that Forbes list is)
