I think the cost of gas will go right back up as soon as the elections are over. I think that more and more employers are going to feel the fuel cost pinch. Our country revolves around the transportation of goods. If truck drivers can not make a living because they are paying $5+ for diesel, then more and more are going to have to stop driving. Higher fuel means, higher food, higher utilities, higher everything. I can't see Obama or McCain being able to solve the problems that the Bush administration has created. We keep pumping billions and billions of money into Iraq while Iraq sits on an 80 billion dollar budger surplus. They should be paying us to be there, not us paying them! Until this country can stabilize the economy, we need to keep ALL of our money here. So we should not just stop giving money to Iraq, we should stop giving it to African countries that refuse to care for their own poor. Maybe it is a greedy, selfish way to look at it, but there are millions in this country that are only a couple of paychecks from being homeless. We have starving children here, we have AIDS patients here, the only difference is our country does at least try to take care of it's people.
Ok, down off my soap box. If I offended you, sorry, but this is my opinion and as an American citizen I am entitled to have my own opinion even if it offends others.
