    Why odd? Seems like a perfectly reasonable expectation to rising prices and a bad economy combined with more fuel efficient vehicles hitting the road, less fuel efficient vehicles leaving the road.

    No doubt numerology has the answer.
    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged.
    One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world.
    The other, of course, involves orcs.

    LOL. I bike when it is warm enough and I do not use AC. Never owned a bike before 2007 and used AC all the time. Don't have cable TV, don't need it. Rather spend my money on me, on lifting, on competing, training, good food than oil companies. Rather live reality than watch reality TV. It's kind of amazing what you can do and what you do not want to do when you get into this fitness stuff bb.com is supposed to be about.

    Oh well - we now return you to your latest installment of Streetbull's world.

    But the average age of the vehicles on the road is about 10.6 years, an all-time record, last time I read.

    Well, in a way he could be blamed for this chart. Less our dollars worth, the more people have to budget, the less excess funds they have for gas.

    Take that, OBAMA!

    He has an effect on the price, but i got sick of people blaming Bush for the rising gas prices as well. Gas will continue to rise no matter what the president does. He could do something to bring the price down temprorarily maybe, but a comined emerging Indian-Chinese market of roughly 3 billion people and a non-renewable resources will always end bad.

    See you would think that but the actual price of gasoline hasn't rose at all. If the President stopped debt-spending and creating fake wealth to pay their debts, gas would plummet. Check out this chart:



    If we stuck with gold as money, as 2,000 years of economic law tells us to, we would paying the same amount for gas. Actually the price slightly dipped. So the President could actually enact fiscally responsible legislation that could bring down gas. Fukking Nixon.

    More fuel efficient vehicles. Back in the 80's 15 MPG was amazing. Now that's half of what many cars get.

    Um, what? You know we stopped using gold as money only 40 years ago, right? Are you denying that inflation damages your currency's spending power? Are you denying that we inflate our currency? Please expand because I'm quite sure you have no clue what you're talking about.

    This, gas prices would and should continue to rise due to increased demand.

    Of course gas prices would have been lower if we stuck with the gold standard. But the average salary would also be way lower. Inflation affects salaries just as much as gas.

    Not equivalently. Notice the gold price remaining flat as the USD per barrel skyrockets. Has your minimum wage skyrocketed to offset this? Or has it just been the prices of the commodities?

    1) Slower economy - People aren't driving to jobs they don't have. People aren't driving around to do things when they don't have disposable income.

    2) Efficient driving habits - Gas has been $3 or so a gallon for the most part for almost five years. So they plan things out more efficiently.

    3) More people ordering online - Why go shop when amazon.com is a click away? In fact, why go to see a movie when you can just watch Netflix? The internet has probably done a lot to keep people at home, which means no driving obviously.

    4) More efficient vehicles - Nobody thinks H2s are cool anymore. It's all about fuel efficient vehicles and the trend isn't going to stop, not when gas prices are as volatile as they are. Even trucks these days have flex fueling options. Even if it is E85, that means less gas is being used.

    5) Car pooling, bicycling, etc. - A minor reason but city governments have been adding bicycle paths, incentives for car pooling, etc.

    If we stuck with gold as money, as 2,000 years of economic law tells us to, we would paying the same amount for gas. Actually the price slightly dipped. So the President could actually enact fiscally responsible legislation that could bring down gas. Fukking Nixon.
