They talk about dwindling supply but I can guarantee you that they are lying to you. Last weekend I traveled across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel in Virginia, there are always a few oil tankers anchored just off the coast there waiting for a price increase before they come into port, this time there was at least 20 oil tankers anchored. They are intentionally restricting the supply. Here are some stock photos of the bridge and the tankers, unfortunately I did not have my camera with me on last weekend.


This is a container ship and not a tanker but it shows an interesting view of what it is like to have ship pass through while you are on the bridge.
If it looks like a duck, acts like a duck, and quacks like a duck it is probably just a tool of the conspiracy.

oh we actually have different gallons :S
* The imperial (UK) gallon was legally defined as 4.54609 L. This definition is used in some Commonwealth countries and Ireland, and is based on the volume of 10 pounds of water at 62 °F. (A US liquid gallon of water weighs about 8.33 pounds at the same temperature.) The imperial fluid ounce is defined as 1⁄160 of an imperial gallon. On 1 January 2000, it ceased to be a legal unit of measure within the United Kingdom for economic, health, safety or administrative purposes.[2]
* The US liquid gallon is legally defined as 231 cubic inches,[3] and is equal to exactly 3.785411784 litres or about 0.133680555 cubic feet. This is the most common definition of a gallon in the United States. The US fluid ounce is defined as 1⁄128 of a US gallon.
* The US dry gallon is one-eighth of a US Winchester bushel of 2150.42 cubic inches, thus it is equal to exactly 268.8025 cubic inches or 4.40488377086 L. The US dry gallon is less commonly used, and is not listed in the relevant statute, which jumps from the dry quart to the peck.[3]

Here in the U.S.A. most of us have to drive like 60 miles every day to get to work. In your little countries, you dont have to go as far. Therefore, we use more gas everyday, and it gets expensive.

As the price of fuel goes higher, more and more will start to think: what on earth is everyone doing buying toxic inefficient fuel when non-toxic efficient solutions exist...
