[quote=">>-Toxos-->":xvcwdnxr] It’s about time Americans quit griping about the high gas prices (which are still quite low by international standards) and started doing something serious on a national scaleabout their gas dependency... Tox.[/quote:xvcwdnxr] I agree about stopping the whining, but we are a LONG way off from being independent of petrol. Our focus, IMO, ought to be getting away from as much FOREIGN dependency as possible. I also admit to tiring easily from all of the inferences that we should be content when we compare ourselves to all those OTHER countries. Their prices are higher because of the tax structures, and I personally refuse to be content when the number one profiteer from Oil Production is the government who invests and risks nothing in the endeavor!
Besides, the USA didn't get to it's prominent position in the world economy by constantly comparing itself to others and succumbing to global peer pressure. We did it by pursuing what was right and in our best interest.
