Don’t get hung up on the octane rating. Look at the price. Gas at the same octane rating was that price in 1990. Not too long ago gas was getting close to $5.00 a gallon for the same 85 octane.

It was not too long ago there was a thread on real estate ownership and how it was a terrible investment. All investments can be terrible. Real estate right now is red hot.

With inflation factored in gas is extremely cheap. I remember paying that 30 years ago. With additional taxes and inflation factored in its unbelievable cheap.

Interested to see how that is going to hold up with the cancellation of the Keystone Pipeline and this administration's green initiatives to reducing domestic production of fossil fuels?

I recall reading that the US really doesn't need the added capacity from the Keystone XL pipeline. The oil would be sold to overseas markets. The project would create about 2,000 jobs for the estimated 2 year construction period and only add about 35 full time jobs thereafter. And the Athabasca oil sands in Alberta has been labeled as the worlds most destructive oil operation an environmental nightmare. The tailing ponds, full of toxic heavy metals are so large they can be seen from outer space.

Chris - I've seen that list posted on Facebook and the pics picked are extremely cherry-picked or meaningless. For example, when accounting for inflation that $2.95/gallon gasoline actually is close to the same price it was 50 years ago.
Sorry Bob, but the gas price was not cherry picked. It was the actual average cost per gallon on the 19th of January in CA. I would also note that no new wars or conflicts is a lot more than meaningless.

there are plenty of charts showing that the Dems have a better statistical history for market returns,
They also have a history of raising taxes on hard working men and women to help pay for the lazy Americans and illegals.

The gas price was what I referred to as meaningless, because while it looks like a big number for shock value, adjusting for inflation shows the price has hardly changed for 50 years.
Getting out of conflicts sounds great too, till realizing we gave up on what we were trying to accomplish. Twenty years and trillions of dollars just were handed to the Taliban, Russia, and Iran.

As for taxes, yes California has some of the worst which is one reason I no longer live there. However at the Federal level, they haven't changed massively. A quick look didn't find a chart continuing this through now to show the Trump cuts. The problem is what I mentioned before, in that there is SO little revenue that taxes need to go back up just for basic services because the cuts were so deep and just shifted the burden into the next President's years, no matter who it'd be.


What I've seen in my own numbers since Bush Jr is that my Fed bill has stayed pretty constant but they keep shifting "unfunded mandates" onto the States and my State tax keeps creeping up. It may be time to live out of my van and camp in all your guys' yards off the grid.
:p

According to a think tank. Yeah right. Maybe you should spend more time worrying about the ______________ and less about stirring up shit in another country. Troll
We're all here because we like one certain bike. Being from different countries, and liking a certain bike is not surprising. Different cultures, races, religions, etc don't matter when deciding on what bike to purchase. BUT, if you're from country "A", you can't tell somebody from country "B", "C", "D", etc. . . . how there country should be governed. I mean you can, but, it's not your place. We're too different. We haven't walked in each other's shoes. I wouldn't think to tell someone from another country how their leaders suck ass.

Unless y'alls leaders can walk on water. . . . they're not perfect. And, unless they're perfect. . . . people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. I've been biting my tongue reading what my fellow countrymen have been writing. But, it's our country. . . . if we want to bitch about it. . . . we've earned the right. But, I've about had it with everybody else in the world telling us how we're wrong, and how bad our leaders are.

I don't think any of y'all would appreciate us telling you how crappy your country is.
