Gas, A Pain in The Wallet

Posted by thetraveldoctor on July 6, 2008

With Gas prices approaching $5 a gallon in The City of Chicago, I wanted to see what gas was going for in Dubai in the Middle East. Currently, one gallon of regular gasoline will set you back $1.42 a gallon in Dubai and in Saudi Arabia they are paying $0.99 a gallon.

I find it amazing that the price of oil on the world market is going through the roof and it’s all speculation. The oil ministers have told the world that they have plenty of oil and there is NO OIL SHORTAGE!

The good news is that people are driving less, as they cannot afford to fill their gas tanks. And the higher oil goes, the less people will use and the faster we in the US will find alternative fuels. Mark my words, if oil keeps rising at this record pace, slowly but surely, we will build vehicles that don’t use oil and then the oil producing nations will have no place to sell their oil.

Americans are very resourceful, and when they get kicked in the head one to many times, they find another way to do the same thing, but cheaper and better. Look for electric cars, more hydroelectric plants and more nuclear power plants by 2015.

Energy independence, that’s what the American People will achieve!
