Take a loan out to fill the car with gas.

Recommended Posts

Just got back from doing stuff and had to fill the tank with gas.  Now I know that I don't have it as bad as others but DAM !!!!!!  There goes my retirement !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If I hear the empty headed Pres blame this on Putin, I will scream.  I think the big thing is how they think we are all stupid out here.  I think that bothers me the most.

All all know the solution, grow a pair and fix this.

Yeah,.. it is sad.
We(Netherlands) pay 2,50 Euro's for ... ONE freaking liter(E10). (Gallon is 3,7 Liters I believe). But, maybe I am planning to fill up my gastank just over the border in Germany. Doing groceries and tabaco. 

And E10 fuel, is so bad for engines and you have to buy 'Fuel Cleaner' (€14,99) too.

Definitely hitting my pocket at nearly £2 a litre (2.33 euro / $2.44 usd) and their forecasting a recession for the next 18 months which will push up prices even further and make it unfordable.

oil price is ruled by markets not presidents , putin has an indirect effect on this cause the war in Ukraine and all these gas boycott from russia pushed the oil pirces up thats it

Now is the time to switch from your huge suburban truck to a normal size car or SUv.

Or start riding horses, oh wait a minute , food prices are soring too!     scratch that.

May have to eat that horse !!!  Time to stock up on can goods people !!!  Start that garden !!!  And do not forget your ammo !!!  I mentioned before during the 70's, everyone was buying "locking gas caps".  Back then the gas caps on 99% of all cars were not behind a locking door.  Siphoning others gas was a big deal !!!  Especially in my area where farmers have huge gas tanks to fill equipment.  Kids would take 5 gallon cans and go around town at night siphoning tanks.  Or better yet find a farmer with no lock on his filling station tank.  Crazy ass kids !!!!  Oh wait, I was a teenager then.  😇

Yes, Putin has alot to do with the current situation.  Who's dear friend is Putin?  HMMMMMM  (you know, the asshole who tried a coup when he did not win the election)   Let's not blame the current President for the mess that the previous seditious one (who, I might add should be in jail for treason, bribery, scam-ism, on and on and on) caused.

Why some folks think letting a con man, a b.s. master running things was a good thing for the country is beyond me... so we have a crappy situation, as happened after George W. Bush had 8 years to wreak havoc and then a mess was to be cleaned up.  See a pattern?  I sure do.

For today, I am going to say Fuck Putin.  May he rot in hell.  :popo:   As for American politics, lord help us, cause we are going to need it, half the country is crazy foolish.  Dangerous times, and for what?   😪

As for the oil companies, if we had a moral, wise Congress that would actually work for the good of the people instead of their own pockets, laws would be passed to prevent such situations like we have today.  https://www.businessinsider.com/gas-prices-oil-company-profits-skyrocketing-energy-sector-earnings-charts-2022-5
