Alberta is a large oil exporrter - burns my butt you can buy Alberta gas cheaper in the U.S. than you can buy it here. In Canada there are huge gas taxes to the consumer. One newspaper article here pointed out that if you remove the taxes and only pay what the oil company gets, gas is cheaper than bottled water - pretty incredible when you figure the expense in producing gas and getting it to market.

Bottled water isn't that cheap. At a dollar a bottle it would cost $150 to fill your car.

Americans complain about gas prices but trust me, it's much more expensive up north.

New York it's about $2.10 per gallon....in Canada we were paying about $3.80 per gallon for a while. Recently it's down to about $3 a gallon in Toronto. That's the lowest it's been for a while............so stop complaining!

You should bomb a few countries. That is paying WAY to much for gas. :-b

In any case, you probably said it more clearly, concisely, and politely than I would have.


Yeah. This is what I do for a living. ;-)

For just one decidedly strange moment, I thought Trans was saying he makes dirty bombs for a living... 8-o

Yeah... perhaps I should state for the record that I don't do this.

Although, the saying in the field is: "Building a nuclear bomb is like making dinosaur soup--once you have the dinosaur, the rest is easy."

(The dinosaur being HEU or plutonium for those slow on the uptake. ;-) )
I'm back. Sorta.

Speaking of oil, I'm still paying near record high prices for gas, where's my damn oil?


I agree with that. There are a lot of countries that have similar problems but we really seem to be concerned with the ones sitting on a gold mine of oil. :-?


Most terrorists are looking for a way to support their terrorist activities. What better than a country full of oil?
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I'm talking about it from our perspective. There are other countries that need our help just as bad yet we put them on the back burner because they don't have oil.

I would suggest that the greatest threat is North Korea, and they don't have much oil for us.
