    I heard on NPR that prices are up $2 and they are expecting it to jump even more once we find out how long the fields will be down. Gas is already the most expensive I've seen it here at $3.05.

    "Corrosion-related wall thinning appeared to exceed BP criteria for continued operation."

    Notice how said criteria was never elaborated upon. Meaning it could've been the equivalent of an eggshell's thickness. Just another excuse to game the system further.

    BP's Alaska operation is just a drop in the bucket compared to its exploratory operations in Russia. Squeeze the supply just so, create more speculation, and BP keeps pumping away along with everyone else and making piles of money all the while.

    Think Enron, people, Enron.

    History DOES indeed repeat itself.

    Alberta oil is looking better and better all the time. :D

    Be careful what you wish for. Alberta is already the 50 1/3rd state.

    Will you take B.C. and Quebec too?

    BC is a no-brainer, due to Whistler and Vancouver's strip clubs.

    Quebec is a negotiating point. What else are you willing to throw into the deal?

    We'll take Quebec. If we goosestep in, maybe they'll voluntarily stop speaking French and embrace German. From there it's a short leap to English.

    Kind of like in 1940 ... POW! ZING!

    Didn't they used to say the same about Louisiana?

    In the last six months, our company organized its production process, and transferred me from an office 1.2 miles from my house, to an office 25.3 miles away.

    My gas consumption went from 2 gallons a week to 3 gallons a day. In other words, about nine dollars a goddamn day right out of my pocket (That's $180.00 a month, as of today. $200 as of next week). Thanks a fucking lot, boys.

    I don't know what you're complaining about, Starman.

    Why, two-bit says there's no reason at all anyone should be feeling the pinch from rising gas prices. And he's never wrong about anything.

    Gone up from $2.98 to $3.04 around here from last night to today. Higher in the northern suburbs.

    I put $15 in last night when it was $2.99. That got me to nearly 3/4 of a tank. That should last me until the end of the month.

    The joy of living less than a mile from the office!
