1/11: Will gas prices go to $4?

Moderated by Rick Badie

Metro Atlantans are wedded to their cars. When gas prices inch up, even a few cents, we take notice. Today, a senior petroleum analyst predicts pain at the pump with regular gas to reach $4 per gallon. Or more, depending on where you live. Also, a AAA spokeswoman advises us to educate ourselves and prepare.

$4.00 Gas, that is good for the economy. Taxes are part of that $4.00 and thAT helps government. Now listen, do I have your attention? I do? good. The new deep water port at Savannah will bring oil right to Georgia, no transporting from out of state. Gas will go lower , with the new port.

Savannah is a freight port–mostly containers. The dredging of the river will not impact gas prices here at all, because no oil/gas/other energy is loaded or unloaded there.

With Obozo in office, bank on it. He refuses to ween our dependence on foreign oil by tapping into the vast resources our country has. Did you know that the state of N. Dakota has the 8th largest oil reserve in the world? Yet we can’t touch it,

Do you know why we can’t touch it? It’s oil shale, there’s not a commercially viable way to extract it yet.

The column suggest that we are the victims of Iran’s wild actions. They have done nothing. We have done this all to ourselves. What do you expect will happen when you orchestrate an oil trading sanction on one of the worlds largest producers? The price goes up! That is why Japan is trying to get Saudi to increase output before committing. This is nuts. Iran has every right to build a nuclear power plant, and a nuclear defense if that is what they choose to do. If we don’t want to pay more for gas then we should send an ambassador to Tehran and restore trade. They present no threat to anyone.

Laskoski’s column puts all the blame on Iran. Nothing happens in a vacuum. Iran has insulted Israel by calling them out on apartheid. A government whose rights is based on race can not endure – it will fall on its own; and that statement is what the Zionist have claimed was a threat to “push them out to sea”. Get over it. Defending apartheid is not worth $4 a gallon.
