Re: $20 a gallon gas proposed.....
Somebody might propose it, but your average Congresscritter knows voting for it would be a vote for going back to the farm and retirement.
I was all ready to buy into the "Peak Oil" argument last summer when it went through $4, but then it went back to $2 or less and the word came out that gas went up in price because the Day Traders wanted to see if they could get away with gouging us.
The primary reason I built this thing was to use it for my 40-mile daily commute when the prices got back to $4 and up, but so far, prices are going DOWN. $3 around Memorial day, now under $2.50 most places.
Fortunately, I discovered just how much FUN these little corn-poppers are to fiddle with and ride.
