The US public aren't happy about the high prices.  :(  especially with Exxon making $80,000 profit a minute.  :shock:

fcuk-it, im selling my car, i cant fork out half a grand just to fill it up everytime, and the worst is, people complain when i push up my fees. how can petrol go up by 30c every month?
somewhere on the darker side of the spectrum of our rainbow government, someone is coining it.

on that note, has anyone noticed how taxis are subsidised for fuel by the gov.?
it occurred to me that i never see taxis filling up at 99% of the garages i pass, then you'd see 40 taxis parked at only one or two "special" filling stations at any given time. not even the caltex next to the squatter camp i pass everyday has a single taxi filling up there...ever....and its the only garage in miles - and there are LOTS of taxis around.
yep, thats right!
WE are paying for these motherfcukers' fuel.

why else would they keep so quiet despite the monthly fuel hike? - think for yourself.....

Flog the car while it still worth something!!!   At this rate pretty soon everyone will be selling their cars,  and buying bikes - thus the market will be flooded,  the value will plummet,  and you'll be cursing ...:wink:  

On another note,  I was going down the William Nicol (northbound) early friday morning.   Spotted a grey KTM 950 adventure - nice bike.   On top was a petite young lady in a pink mx top and matching pink helmet with a short dark pony tail sticking out the back.   Being that I ride a KLR,  I never qualified for a glance.....   Anyone else know her???   I hope it's a her and not a gay man :oops:
