All one has to do to refute the arguments that promote government run public transportation is to point to the "High Speed Rail" boondoggle project.

The funny thing is public transpo in the US works, it's just not as convenient as other countries.

There isn't one city I've visited in my Kids Tour Across America where I haven't been able to figure out how to get where I need to without a car. I guess having a phone makes it easier than before.

So we just need to get everyone iPhones. :)

Certainly policy and tenure of this administration has contributed mightily in a real and perceived way. Whether you believe that or not, the electorate will. Other administrations would at least try to address the pricing ( release oil from the SPR or open investigations into evil oil companies) but this douche likes high energy costs…he thinks it will save the planet.  However, producers do take cues from policy and they will be slow to increase domestic production to ease supply so prices will continue this ascent for now.


Told Ya...the cost will be political and it will hurt...(whether the blame is true or not)...

62% of American voters blame Biden and his policies for increasing inflation, another dire poll for the president shows
Americans are pointing a finger at President Joe Biden's policies when asked what's responsible for the rising inflation

A Politico/Morning Consult poll released Wednesday found that 62 per cent of registered voters assigned a lot or some blame to Biden administration policies
In the same poll, just 38 per cent of voters, including seven in 10 Democrats, said the U.S. was moving in the right track
That survey had Biden's approval rating at 45 per cent, with 52 per cent disapproving
That being said, 45 per cent of respondents said they'd vote for a Democratic candidate in the 2022 elections, over the 40 per cent who chose Repubican

My point...the everyman is seeing this and politicians on both sides sense it.  The smell of blood in the water will doom this administrations lofty, aspirational legislation and the mid terms will be a wipe out.  Ideologues will always vote their side, they are really not the deciders.  Its the guy in the middle who will decide the fates..Again, whether true or not...perception (like inflation)..becomes reality.

A year ago I was paying $2.90 for a gallon of gas = $6.00 a gallon gas...fact or just my opinion.  Numbers...just numbers.

Except gas now is about $4.00. Stop lying.

Also, what does that have to do with anything? A year ago, demand was less because fewer people were driving. I mean, seriously. Stop using misinformation.

You were saying?.... ;D ;D >:D
Gas prices hit $5 in Manhattan

NEW YORK - Gas prices are on the rise and they have hit nearly $5 for regular and are now about $5.40 a gallon for supreme in Manhattan.

A Mobil station on 11th Ave. on the West Side had the eye-popping prices on Monday evening.

What does Manhattan have to do with OC? It's $4.xx in OC.

We are a California based forum after all….

Gas hits $7.59 a gallon in CA town

Or when oil rises 71% in 9 months and the bonehead in charge wants to restrict exploration, development and distribution...

"The town has long been known for having some of the highest prices in the country. A sign at the gas station notes the next nearest station is 40 miles away to the north and 12 miles to the south."

Oil price today is the same as Oct 2018. Were you complaining back then? The ONLY reason it rose 71% in 9 months is it artificially dropped to Jan 1999 level due to the pandemic.

We know that a certain person on this forum likes to post misleading information.

As usual you miss the point.  Wouldn't be at the shocking level of $7 if it weren't $4-$5 right here at home.  Just a symptom but an eye catching trend alarm.  The only reason I like it that high is 1) I'm making lots of $$ in the energy sector right now and 2) those prices spell doom for the current administration and a return to sane and stable energy policy of the past 5 years.  All the virtue signaling is pure BS.  Money talks and we will return to lower prices in the future no matter what governments tell the SJW's.



Fossil fuel production 'dangerously out of sync' with global climate targets, UN warns

The United Nations Environment Programme's annual production gap report found governments were on track to produce more than twice the levels of fossil fuels in 2030 than would be needed to keep rising global temperatures to below 1.5 degrees Celsius.
Ahead of the COP26 climate summit in just over a week, politicians and business leaders are under immense pressure to meet the demands of the climate emergency by delivering on promises made as part of the landmark 2015 Paris Agreement.
The findings reaffirm the yawning gap between meaningful climate action and the rhetoric of policymakers and business leaders publicly touting their commitment to the so-called "energy transition."

The UNEP's report finds most major oil and gas producers are planning on increasing production out to 2030 and beyond, while several major coal producers are also planning on continuing or increasing production.

By the end of the decade, government's production plans and projections were forecast to lead to around 240% more coal, 57% more oil and 71% more gas than would be consistent with limiting global heating to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

The findings reaffirm the yawning gap between meaningful climate action and the rhetoric of policymakers and business leaders publicly touting their commitment to the so-called "energy transition."

The UNEP underscored this point once again, noting global fossil fuel production remains "dangerously out of sync" with Paris Agreement limits. It said worldwide fossil fuel use must start declining immediately and steeply to be consistent with limiting long-term warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

The report analyzed 15 major fossil fuel producers: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Norway, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, the United Arab Emirates, the U.K. and the U.S.

The climate plans of the countries analyzed show oil, gas and coal production was on track to increase until at least 2040.

Of the three fossil fuels, gas production was expected to increase the most between 2020 and 2040, the report said, based on the governments' plans.
