High gas prices – bad? Or good?

How high will gas prices go – and how does it affect you in Hoboken?

I snapped this photo for reference over at the Willow Sunoco service station in Uptown Hoboken recently. Remember – just back in August of this year – gas prices were about 20 to 30 cents less per gallon.

How high do you think the gas prices will go?

Does the “political season” and upcoming elections have anything to do with it?

How is it affecting your life? Do you factor in fuel costs into your budget?

Media is biased and controlled when it comes to gas prices

Take a look at this low-budget, yet amazing video that shows how integral the media is in trying to shape the opinion of the sheeple public.

Back in 2006, 2007, 2008 – the previous Bush administration was being “blamed” for the terrible high cost of fuel. And was used as a cornerstone for getting certain individuals elected into office.

Now here in 2012 – the MEDIA has the nerve to say that high gas prices are actually GOOD! Even going as far as stating that it saves 10’s of thousands of lives per year! WTF?

If this simple video doesn’t slap you in the face and make you want to unplug your TV for good – then I don’t know what will.

I used to believe in complete market driven economics in the oil market. But I recently read how the USA manipulated the price of oil to rock-bottom in the mid-1980s to hasten the downfall of the USSR and how the Iraq invasion as a response to the sale of oil reserve rights by Saddam to the Chinese, which would have taken effect at the expiration of sanctions in late 2003. Let the Chinese control the majority of Iraq oil? Can’t let THAT happen!

The media are idiots and their audience more so. With some exception, they’ll say whatever they think will help BHO.

And the people will believe whatever partisan source has an opinion on the matter.


These high gas prices are really hurting the economy and I’m not sure it matters who is elected prez.
