    Re: The Effects of $5 a Gallon Gas?

    Personally it won't have much affect on me. I'm not a traveler by nature and so when I retire I'll stay pretty close to home. Today I have a generous gas allowance so I don't really notice the price much.

    But for the majority of Americans the coming increases will have a very serious affect on their lifestyles and futures.

    What we're going to see is a return to city life (actually that's already happening). The thing now is to get as close to work and shopping (and mass transit) as possible, whereas a decade or two ago the rural life was all the rage.

    As mentioned above, many businesses are going down in the near future. Doing business today is extremely competitive due to online buying. In fact, we buy very little locally. And when we do buy locally it's mostly from the large corporate entities.

    Back a couple years ago we needed a Halogen bulb replaced in our building. The bulb was purchased at our local Ace Hardware store for $9.98 plus tax. It was decided to order a supply of bulbs for all light fixtures so we'd be able to quickly service any light. Bulbs of higher quality than the Ace Hardware bulbs (last much longer) were located online for about $1.30 each in small quantity (postage included). We now do this with 80% of our maintenance needs. The savings all together are great. What we're doing is what everybody in any type of business is doing in order to stay in business. This trend eliminates local businesses and middlemen (jobs).

    What needs to happen.
    1. Laws must be enacted to limit imports. We need to return to productiveness.
    2. We need to be less dependent on foreign oil by using our own. This will be the most difficult to achieve due to powerful people in this country who have grown fat via crooked oil deals. They will sabotage off shore rigs or whatever it takes to turn public opinion away from this extremely important move.

    Boycott as much as possible. Gas is a market, like anything else, and I think it's being manipulated.

    Manipulate back.

My father was a voyageur; he died while on a voyage. I will also die while en route, and another Chicot will take my place. Such is our course of life."

    Boycott what exactly? I HAVE to have gas to drive for work. I HAVE to buy grogeries to cook meals. Everything is shipped by ground at some point, so higher fuel costs go into everything. So are we to boycott living? Yeah, that'll teach those fat-cats! LOL

    Forget all the politics, speculated reasons and causes, not what this thread is about.....the question is, "How will $5 a gallon gas effect you pesonally?"

    I will survive but it will suck having to give up a few things.

    most people are feeling it NOW....gas is $3.69 here. Another $1.31 won't mean that much more truly. but when you add it all together, crappola it hurts.

    Re: The Effects of $5 a Gallon Gas?

    I work 80 miles from my house. It already costs me $30 a day in gas. It's already KILLING me.

    If it hits $5 it's REALLY going to effect me.

    And I'm sure it will effect a lot of people. This in turn it will effect the economy because people won't have money to spend.

    While the oil companies make huge profits the public will sit at home not spending the money they would spend because it goes to the gas pump.
