who knows.

right now getting work is walk out of the house to the corral for me.

slow, you've got to figure out how to burn cow pies in a steam boiler, with the amount of "free" fuel around you could drive for free. The only downside being the frequent stops to refuel, AND I'm sure the tax man would want to hit you for all the gas you weren't buying...

The cost of gasoline has DROPPED here in Humboldt County by nearly $1 per gallon over the past few months. Now down to about $3.85. Isn't the price dropping elsewhere in the country? :?

I paid 2.93 in casper last wed when I wen to see angie. paid last monday like 3.39 in riverton.

but it won't stay there. wait till jan first. this year it will probaly hit 5 bucks. we all know its not staying at what it was last year at this time!


I have had to acutally give up some pretty darn good jobs in the past and wonderful bosses do to high gas to work.

I gave up my life time dream of cowboying for a living due to high gas and 82 miles one way to work.

and I gave up driving a hot oiler in the oilfeilds due to 3 buck gas and 60 miles one way.

I could use both jobs right now.

one thing about the motor bikes when wyoming wind blows in the winter time they don't quite work.

and right now all part time jobs and stuff like walmart and store jobs in town are out due to high gas cost.

evne ups doesn't pay enough in riverton to make working in town 20 hours a week even worth while.

so yea. its bettor to be out of work and starving than them part time gigs due to the gas.

its one major reason I belive in them cows i got even though hay is 200 a ton or bettor.

them cows are paying my way.

for me though getting to work with high gas prices in wyoming all my life has been a headache since clinton took office.

I used to pay like 99 cents or 70 cents in highschool and I could make a tank of gas on a old toyota pickup last a week or bettor.

it was a challenge to get to drive my own car than riding the school bus.

i would fire up the scooter
its a tough choice to take the
yamaha zuma or the genuine stella
the zuma has been converted to liquid cooling and has a larger bore and stroke and regeared so even thought its plated as a moped it should hit 70 mph
the stella is based off of the old 2 stroke 4 speed shifty vespas and has been upgraded to 180cc and it will go 70+

but how much of that is taxes for all the "free" stuff your govt. "gives" people
the US govt. takes 18 cents/gal the oil co makes about 8 cents/gal, the rest goes to Canada and Mexico oil co's mostly. In the rest of the world the big profit goes to middle east, african, and Russian oil co's most owned by the govt. one way or an other.

Fed takes 18 cents, NJ takes around 30 cents, NJ also takes an EPA something or or other fee so we can drink our water without waiting for it to settle :R

but unlike all the "free" stuff, state fuel taxes are used to fix roads and bridges, at least in more honest states, the US govt. thinks it is just fine to take fuel taxes and build light rail and rail trails with it....not highways/bridges :x

hope that isn't there stimulus idea on fixing the ecomey or building light rails and trails to invest in infstruture to put us all back to work.

if this is how they really fix roads and bridges than than we are really in trouble.
