SERIOUSLY. there needs to be a cap on this, or getting rid of the tax on gas, some kind of relief. it's ridiculous that the oil companies post record profits every quarter yet they supposedly can't lower prices.
I have some experience with that town myself. My mom has to go out there for business meetings sometimes, and I went out there for a doctor's appointment once. It's not a bad place at all. Though it's a city, it doesn't feel overbearing.

I simply refuse to believe that gas will one day reach $10 or whatever like some believe. Something will, nay, MUST happen, and soon.

That place is huge though, so even though I didn't really go anywhere, it was quite the experience.

Now you see, if I had known back then that you were in Tennessee, it wouldn't have been expendable, now would it?

Well, I must bail for the night. Gotta be at work in less than 8 hours.

ha, awesome. i know the mall out there and the restaurants and such. i've not been there in a few years since my grandma lives with us now, but from what she's told me even from when she moved away (she moved from wv to frederick, then here) a lot had changed from what we remembered. but she is a bit crazy

and i agree. that's just pessimistic thinking, and being irrational. maybe i'm being naive, but i don't think even a republican president will let gas prices will get that ridiculous.

I have been to Hagerstown/Frederick so many times I can't even count. Basically, anytime something important needed to be shopped for, that's where we went. Plus, my mom worked in Frederick for a good while.

What gasoline reaching $10 entails is that nothing will change at all in the industry for the next 20-30 years, which is not something I believe will happen. There will be a change, eventually, but we need to be patient, even if things look bleak at the moment.

ooh, cool. i've only been to frederick a couple times, but i don't know how many times i've been to hagerstown when looking it up on wiki though, i found a nearby city of paw paw

yeah, exactly. i don't think anyone will let them continue to produce huge gas guzzlers and such year after year, and continue to provide incentives. if anything, there's already signs the suv bubble is about to burst. which it's no surprise, really. with gas prices the way they are, and prices only getting higher, not lower, of course people are going to trade in suvs for smaller cars, even if it means losing money on the sale.

I wouldn't say either city is particularly great, just a step up.

I'm a bit surprised there hasn't been a substitute for gas marketed on a large scale just yet. It's those damn monopolies.
