no more nukes

Nukes? This is Obama's guy. He said he wants to figure out how to get gas prices up to $5 a gallon.

It's about time you paid the proper price for it.
davincipoppalag (Mar 27, 2012)
He was a big proponent of Nukes and natural renewable sources up until lately
Axil62 (Mar 27, 2012)
Quite the flip flopper, eh? He recently took back his $5 a gallon statement too.
davincipoppalag (Mar 28, 2012)
Well he fits right into that team

Axel, everybody else in the world is paying a lot more money for gasoline. America has been postponing raising the price for a long time. In other words, we're spoiled. We've had the luxury of cheap gasoline for so long, we think it's an entitlement. Like, we're Americans we get to drive all the time anywhere all the time for cheap! Other places in the world, it's at least seven dollars a gallon or more. Everybody takes the streetcar or the bus.

we need to drill for oil in America a lot more. Yes, Alaska. We need to get oil from America, and not be so dependent on the Middle East. and,we need to transfer over to electric cars, hydrogen, anything else that works. Someone told me, there is a car that is not in America, that runs on air- vacuum power, and the engine somehow uses the pressure of the air and the vacuum, to run the car. Do you think American car companies would ever let that in the country? No way.they're trying to make you think that the only cars that can be used, are the ones with gasoline. UNTRUE. it's the oil companies that own America, and that's why the prices of it are going up. They don't want you to use electric cars, or hydrogen power or anything else, it will put the oil people on the down!however, that's exactly what we need, other types of engines to power the car.(very nice picture, incidentally.)

I'm paying 1.43/ liter.
davincipoppalag (Mar 29, 2012)
$6.50 a gallon US as of today...

I'm paying € 1.85 / liter.
$ 9,46 / gallon.

Some in my country even pay a lot more than that. I'm lucky that I live near the border of Belgium and Germany, so gas stations lower their prices to be competitive (somewhat) with those countries.

Eric Bolling test drove the Chevy Volt at the invitation of General Motors.

For four days in a row, the fully charged battery lasted only 25 miles before
the Volt switched to the reserve gasoline engine.
Eric calculated (liberally) the car got 30 mpg including the 25 miles it ran on
the battery.
So, the range including the 9 gallon gas tank and the 16 kwh battery is
approximately 270 miles. It will take you 4 1/2 hours to drive 270 miles at 60
mph. Then add 10 hours to charge the battery and you have a total trip time of
14.5 hours. In a typical road trip your average speed (including charging time)
would be 20 mph.
According to General Motors, the Volt battery holds 16 kwh of electricity. It
takes a full 10 hours to charge a drained battery.
The cost for the electricity to charge the Volt is never mentioned so I looked
up what I pay for electricity.
I pay approximately (it varies with amount used and the seasons) $1.16 per kwh.
16 kwh x $1.16 per kwh = $18.56 to charge the battery.
$18.56 per charge divided by 25 miles = $0.74 per mile to operate the
Volt using the battery.

Compare this to a similar size car with a gasoline engine only that gets 32 mpg.
$4.00 per gallon divided by 32 mpg = $0.13 per mile.
The gasoline powered car costs about $15,000 while the Volt costs $46,000.
So Obama wants us to pay 3 times as much for a car that costs more than 7 times
as much to run and takes 3 times as long to drive across country.
How brilliant

And this is coming from the person in charge of the most powerful and influential country, what chance have we all got.
