    My car is a relatively small car, but its fuel economy isn't quite as good as one might expect. It has a 2.5-liter 5-cylinder engine, and it generates decent power (which I like), but usually it averages about 19mpg in the city (I've seen it get about about 32mpg on the highway). It seems after my model year, they went to turbocharged 4-cylinder engines. I feel like a turbocharger is one more thing that can go wrong, but I suppose a 4-cylinder could get better fuel economy.

    It was like 2.89 in California just before Biden was installed after the coup.

    And what is it now? It is just over $3 here. I suspect you all have some extra taxes applied to your per gallon cost (although KY has quite a few).

    I did that once in a friend's car. He had a small, barely more than a go-cart, grey something. We called it the "BB". Four bald tires, but it was paid off. Took a right at an intersection on a wet road and full 360...actually, it was more of a 540 because when we stopped we were facing in the direction we came from.

    We have to drive a lot more though. Commutes in Australia are long.

    Didn't GM make a solar powered car that went across Austrailia?

    Too many people would take that success as "See, you all can do that too.


    yeah but the drivable area in australia isnt that big.
    i cant get my solar panel to charge my freaking front door camera adequately

    You can still drive from top to bottom and left to right. But a lot is just, nothing. A LOT is nothing.

    Ouch, in Australia we are paying $1.80 AUD per litre, that is what, 1 Euro? Approx?

    We have to drive a lot more though. Commutes in Australia are long.

    I imagine hybrids & diesels are popular in Australia?

    Nightfox


    Diesels somewhat, hybrids probably less than elsewhere.

    i have been driving my truck because of the weather. it's costing me a fucking arm and leg to gas up.

    I feel your pain. I'm really envying my wife's 4 cylinder.

    Is it wrong to say that I simply don't care how much gas costs? Unless we choose to take public transportation we will remain a captive audience to the fuel pump. I've traveled throughout Europe and experienced a per-gallon cost upwards of $6 but their public transportation is far superior to the US. Then again, I was in Boston earlier this month and found their public transportation to be both reasonable priced, comprehensive, and got me where I needed to go.

    In other words... meh!

    I'm not the person you were replying to, but where I am (Oregon), gas is around $3.70 to $4.15 per gallon.

    jesus christ. fuck that. why did people vote for biden.

    Presidents have no control over the cost of gasoline. It is the oil cartels that drive prices up through the reduction of supply.

    Not true.... This president canceled pipelines and shut down drilling on his first day. The US went from exporting energy to depending on it in one day.

    I was watching the news today and the US is 500,000 barrels a day less because of Joe Biden's choices and now he's asking OPEC to crank out more production.

    Today's gas prices lay squarely on Joe's feet. If you ask Kamala what the Root causes are she'll tell you the same...

    Not true.... This president canceled pipelines and shut down drilling on his first day. The US went from exporting energy to depending on it in one day.

    True, except for your second statement. Keystone XL was to bring in approximately 830,000 bpd of heavy crude (Reuters, January 22, 2021). At the same time, we were importing 3.8m bpd from Canada, therefore, Keystone XL would have continued the trend of oil imports from Canada that were already being handled through the expansion of other pipelines from Canada to the US. "We will be over-piped assuming the other pipelines go ahead on schedule...you can make the argument KXL was not needed." (Mark Oberstoetter, same article).

    Further, clarification of facts. The US imports 5.88 million bpd while exporting 8.5 million bpd to approximately 174 countries and 4 US territories (EIA, September 20, 2021). Therefore, your "facts" are entirely wrong, sorry.

    We all don't live in a city where there is public transit, or need to go
    places where public transit will not take us. I live 7 miles out of town in the township, and once upon a time there was a train line that ran 3 miles away, but that disappeared nearly 100 years ago. The other issue is major cities are too far apart. If travel time was less than 2 hours between major cities, commuter trains may be more popular.

    Is it wrong to say that I simply don't care how much gas costs? Unless we choose to take public transportation we will remain a captive audience to the fuel pump. I've traveled throughout Europe and experienced a per-gallon cost upwards of $6 but their public transportation is far superior to the US. Then again, I was in Boston earlier this month and found their public transportation to be both reasonable priced, comprehensive, and got me where I needed to go.

    Do you realize how much time you waste taking public transportation? do you realize it's inconvenient and costly?
    Do you realize how many filthy people use it? it's disgusting to ride pubic Trains and Buses, they're usually filthy as hell.
    Yes it is toatally wrong for you not to care about the price of gas.
    Our ecconomy is largely based on fossil fuels, so why don't you move to Europe if you dont care about fuel prices?

    I'm not the person you were replying to, but where I am (Oregon),
    gas is around $3.70 to $4.15 per gallon.

    jesus christ. fuck that. why did people vote for biden.

    Presidents have no control over the cost of gasoline. It is the oil cartels that drive prices up through the reduction of supply.

    Totally false, Biden and the Democrat's have through their policies directy caused Gas prices to rise dramatically and inflation.

    Do you realize how much time you waste taking public transportation? do you realize it's inconvenient and costly?

    That all depends. Let's just say you have an "Express Bus" that takes you from your home to downtown, it is high quality, comfortable, with minimal stops, and costs $200 per month, would you take it? If your answer is no, you are part of the problem. If you calculate the costs of fuel and parking, anything over $200/mo is wasting your money if you choose to not take public transportation.

    Do you realize how many filthy people use it? it's disgusting to ride pubic Trains and Buses, they're usually filthy as hell.

    Cooties. I get it.

    Yes it is toatally wrong for you not to care about the price of gas.

    We are all a captive audience when it comes to the cost of fuel. We can sit around, complain about it, blame those who have zero control over how much a gallon costs at the pump, or we can just go on with our day.

    Our ecconomy is largely based on fossil fuels, so why don't you move to Europe if you dont care about fuel prices?

    100% agree, we are all dependant upon fossil fuels. If it wasn't for those, we wouldn't get deliveries to the stores.

    Move to Europe? Where the public transportation system is superior to the US? Wow, great argument. I've considered it in the past. I'll have to avoid the cooties, but that shouldn't be too difficult. In all reality, my choice of where to live is largely based upon a plethora of factors, one of them is not how much a gallon of gasoline costs.

    Do you realize how much time you waste taking public transportation? do you realize it's inconvenient and costly?

    For some people (those who can't drive for various reasons), public transportation is their only option. I think it's nice to at least have the option available. I don't take public transportation much, but we have a light rail system where I am, and if I'm going to a concert or to an event at our convention center, those are a couple of its stops - I'll often take the light rail to those places so that I don't have to worry about finding a parking space there (which can sometimes be difficult). Those rides are also a particular case where it doesn't take much more time than driving to those places.

    As far as the time taken, sometimes I feel like I waste a lot of time in my car stuck in traffic. There are times on the highways here where traffic slows down for no particular reason, or sometimes there's an accident somewhere that backs up traffic for quite a ways. In those cases, I feel like going 10 miles per hour in stop & go traffic on the highway isn't a good use of my time.

    Also, costly for whom? If you don't own a car at all, taking public transportation can be less expensive than owning a car and paying for gas, maintenance, car insurance, etc..

    public transportation is inconvenient, costly to the user and the city and it can be dangerous due to the types of people that use it.

    i took public transportation for a while when i had to share a car and it cost me more money and took more time. i was often late to work and i got home an hour later when i lived 15 mins away by car. i took my bike in the summer months and beat the bus every time.

    the only good thing is i was the only guy on the bus in the morning. so that was a waste of city money to drive one dude to 1 place with 2 buses.

Those rides are also a particular case where it doesn't take much more time than driving to those places.

    It's wonderful to see a logical response to this argument. Public transportation is a necessary evil for some while a pleasant alternative for others. When I worked in downtown Los Angeles and Denver, I would take public transportation in as I loathed sitting in traffic for upwards of an hour each direction. When going to concerts, sporting events, or simply doing something in the "city", I'd also take public transportation. Finding parking in downtown can be hell, paying for it ridiculous, and not having to worry about being too tired to drive, all wins.

    As far as the time taken, sometimes I feel like I waste a lot of time in my car stuck in traffic. There are times on the highways here where traffic slows down for no particular reason, or sometimes there's an accident somewhere that backs up traffic for quite a ways. In those cases, I feel like going 10 miles per hour in stop & go traffic on the highway isn't a good use of my time.

    I'm up between 5:30 and 6:30am daily. When working in downtown, and if I'd drive, I'd need to be on the road by 6am to be in the office by 7-7:15am. That's an hour of work down the drain, and for what? Again, the drive home being equally long, another hour. From an efficiency perspective, those two additional hours I'm sitting in traffic each day aren't spent working. I prefer working from home, but if I have to take public transportation into downtown, I'm on my computer working.

    Also, costly for whom? If you don't own a car at all, taking public transportation can be less expensive than owning a car and paying for gas, maintenance, car insurance, etc..

    Exactly. People don't seem to understand the savings by taking public transportation. You're not paying for auto insurance, fuel, upkeep, potentially parking, and if you lease or are making car payments, car payments. A $200 public transportation pass is a hell of a lot cheaper than all those other expenses. Plus, you can write-off the pass.

    It really depends on the area.

    In my city, public transport funded by the administration (ie. taxes) is usually cheap
    but also close to useless. It is the sort of public transport which does scheduled
    trips which are programmed to arrive to factory X half an hour after the corresponding turn begins :-S

    Collective transport funded by private enterprises is a bit better. It is much cheaper
    than using a car but coverage is very limited. If you are likely enough to have a
    private bus doing a regular line you want to travel, at hours which are fine for you,
    it is great. If such coincidence does not happen, you either don't get to use it or
    you get to use it at very inconvenient hours.

    You're still in traffic when taking public transportation though.

    Yes, as long as I'm not going shopping or anything like that (where I'd be taking things back with me), it's nice to be able to go somewhere and not worry about parking my car - especially in a place where my car might be in danger of getting broken into, etc..

    drive, I'd need to be on the road by 6am to be in the office by 7-7:15am. That's an hour of work down the drain, and for what? Again, the drive home being equally long, another hour.

Fact Most Americans like to come and go as they please, Public transportation is inconvinent costly and the buses and trains I've been on are filthy.
    We can get in our cars, go where we want at the time we want. If you like public Transport so much go to California and see what a mess that is.

    Would you be kind enough to cite your sources?

    You first. <<

    Pull your head out and look around, Gas in my area is up over $1.50 more per gallon from 1 year ago, things I buy at the store are higher, we used to catch T-bone steaks on sale two nice steaks for about 12-13 dollars, now over $30 on sale.
    My source is everywhere you look prices are skyrocketing.

    Do you realize how much time you waste taking public transportation?
    do you realize it's inconvenient and costly?

    For some people (those who can't drive for various reasons), public transportation is their only option. I think it's nice to at least have the option available. I don't take public transportation much, but we have a light rail system where I am, and if I'm going to a concert or to an event at our convention center, those are a couple of its stops - I'll often take the light rail to those places so that I don't have to worry about finding a parking space there (which can sometimes be difficult). Those rides are also a particular case where it doesn't take much more time than driving to those places.

    And that's fine, but Dream Master apparently want's everyone to ride public transport.
    For most people we like to come and go as we please.
    We don't care much for people that try to shame us into riding public transportation.
    I own two cars and I'm proud of it :)

    I'd say a good source would be: Awake and living in today's world, with eyes open. One needs look no further than pipeline(s) being closed down (causing the loss of jobs), and the "climate change" agenda being forced down everyone's throats, whether it makes actual sense or not.

    I'm up between 5:30 and 6:30am daily. When working in downtown,
    and if I'd drive, I'd need to be on the road by 6am to be in the
    office by 7-7:15am. That's an hour of work down the drain, and

    Here's some news - not everybody lives in a metropolitan sewer, where sitting in traffic is a thing. Also, not everybody works on a computer.

    Also, costly for whom? If you don't own a car at all, taking public
    transportation can be less expensive than owning a car and paying
    for gas, maintenance, car insurance, etc..

    Exactly. People don't seem to understand the savings by taking
    public transportation. You're not paying for auto insurance,
    fuel, upkeep, potentially parking, and if you lease or are making
    car payments, car payments. A $200 public transportation pass is
    a hell of a lot cheaper than all those other expenses. Plus, you
    can write-off the pass.

    You also don't have the freedom to move around that a car provides you. That freedom is worth a LOT more than $200/month.

    I would rather pay the price to own a car and have the freedom a car gives me.
    You can't really go grocery shopping using public transportation.

    public transportation is inconvenient, costly to the user and the city and it can be dangerous due to the types of people that use it.

    My favourite guy was on the X43 to Manchester.

    "Hey man, I've had my bags stolen. See my wife and kids over there!" Points to empty space outside the bus. "I've got to get some money cause crackheads stole our suitcases."

    "Dude, you're the crackhead, aren't you?"

    "Oh yeah man... got any crack..."

    And so on. I just don't go to Manchester if I can avoid it.

    My boss used to give me a bus pass worth 100 euros which lasted 3 months or until you used up 15 trips. It was for intercity trips only. THey had a nice movie catalog in that bus line and internet was included, so you could do a lot of work or moviewatching during the trip.

    Also, costly for whom? If you don't own a car at all, taking public t can be less expensive than owning a car and paying for gas, maintenanc insurance, etc..

    public transportation is inconvenient, costly to the user and the city an dangerous due to the types of people that use it.

    i took public transportation for a while when i had to share a car and it money and took more time. i was often late to work and i got home an hour lived 15 mins away by car. i took my bike in the summer months and beat time.

    the only good thing is i was the only guy on the bus in the morning. so t waste of city money to drive one dude to 1 place with 2 buses.

    It really depends on the area.

    In my city, public transport funded by the administration (ie. taxes) is usu but also close to useless. It is the sort of public transport which does sch trips which are programmed to arrive to factory X half an hour after the corresponding turn begins :-S

    Collective transport funded by private enterprises is a bit better. It is mu than using a car but coverage is very limited. If you are likely enough to h private bus doing a regular line you want to travel, at hours which are fine it is great. If such coincidence does not happen, you either don't get to us you get to use it at very inconvenient hours.

    A friend of mine emigrated to Japan. He came back recently to pay a visit to family. The first thing he did upon purchasing a subway card was to say "You robbed like this anywhere but home."

    Closest thing to public transportation is Dial a Ride. It is funded by passengers and state grants and millages. there is a fixed route and demand response service. Demand response is more expensive. Either way, you're at the mercy of when the bus shows up or how much they have to deviate off the fixed route to fulfill demand response. DART covers two townships, so you better be prepared to take the scenic route and lots of time to spare for travel. For example, if i wanted to go to the store, I would have to call
    the central hub, and let them know where I live. They will give me an
    estimate of what time a bus may be diverted to my area. Once finished
    shopping, I will have to wait outside the store for the bus heading back
    close to my home to come back through. Buses only run 7am to 5 pm M-F. Saturdays are 10am to 3pm. That's demand response. Fixed route is only M-F 10am -5pm.

    No Sundays, no major holidays. If you're sick or
    appear to be sick with something contageous, forget that ride to the walk-in clinic.

    Asuming I worked within the bus route's boundaries. there would be no way for me to fit most companies work shifts within their running hours including
    a deviated route schedule. Overtime is out of the question.

    If you can do without a car, then depending on your situation, $200 per month for a public transit pass may be less expensive than car insurance, gas, perhaps a car loan if you have a loan, etc.. And without a car, you don't have to worry about the cost of maintenance and repairs.

    I feel like some sort of Armchair Macho saying this, but if you live in a middle sized town you don't need any transport but a good pair of boots. As long as you are young and have time to spare :-)

    They used to run the numbers every now and then in journals and documentaries around here, and collective transport (buses, metros and such) are more cost effective than your regular car, but more modest means of private transport (such as motorbikes or budget cars) were even cheaper.

    My main gripe with collective transport is that the administration is trying to push it very hard, but they don't have an actual plan. The proper way of having people use collective transport would be to make collective transport so damn good that you would not need private transport at all - this is, you would not bother getting a car because you know you can use a bus instead and get all the transport you need for little buck. However, the administrations here are doing it the other way around: they attempt to make it harder for you to use your own transportation, in the hope that you will give up and send your car to the scrap yard, but they don't offer you an alternative. Which means, they may force Francisco to give his car up because he can no longer pay the asociated taxes, but then Francisco is given no means for travelling between his village and the cattle market office for work. What the government does is to give you a bus that passes-by every 4 days at the 20:00 and tells you to be a good citizen and use that instead of your car.

    I am undescribably bummed by this because there is talk here about increasing the costs of private intercity transport by billing tolls each time you go in or out of a small to middle-sized town. If you don't want to pay the toll you are supposed to get an inoperative collective transport instead, which obviously wonĘ't cut it. Lots of small parcel delivery tasks would be overburdened: if you have a small company delivering packages to nearby villages from a city, they will bleed you dry each time your van goes in and out. As you may guess, the end result is that Grannie Antonieta, the end consumer, is going to be the one paying the price in the end, because distribution companies are just going to add the tax costs to the prices of final products.

    And this is yet another reason why Spanish Administration is not worth the napalm needed to make it burn in Hell.

    Prior to COVID, my company provided $80 towards the pass, costing me $120/mo. The savings and overall reduction in frustration was well worth. At the time, I had car payments, but not paying for parking, etc., was well worth it.

    Since I work from home, we can't count me. My wife babysits our grandchildren at our daughter's house, one of our vehicles needs to be filled up about once a week ($65/week). My other daughter steals my car when she goes to work, requiring a fill-up about once every week and a half ($55/10 days). Between these two, $400ish a month.

    I've been going back and forth on replacing my car with a new Ford Expedition Platinum Max (love the room and comfort, the tech is okay, good power). After renting one in Southern California and Boston, I discovered it gets worse gas mileage than most V8s (RAM 1500, for example). I'm torn. Plus, do I really want my daughter driving my newest vehicle? ;)

    That is about the same as upkeep on my vehicle, at least until Biden got elected and gas went back up to Obama-era prices.

    Since I work from home, we can't count me. My wife babysits our grandchildren
    t our daughter's house, one of our vehicles needs to be filled up about once a
    eek ($65/week). My other daughter steals my car when she goes to work, requir
    g a fill-up about once every week and a half ($55/10 days). Between these two
    $400ish a month.

    I've been going back and forth on replacing my car with a new Ford Expedition atinum Max (love the room and comfort, the tech is okay, good power). After r
    ting one in Southern California and Boston, I discovered it gets worse gas mil
    ge than most V8s (RAM 1500, for example). I'm torn. Plus, do I really want m
    daughter driving my newest vehicle? ;)

    I also work from home 4 days a week currently. Work is roughly a 10-mile roundtrip. The difference may be that I don't buy SUVs or big trucks. :)
    I know some people, for whatever reason, do need them but I don't have a
    big family or reason to haul a lot of people/stuff around so I usually
    don't.

    There are some places I go when I am on vacation where it would be nice to
    at least have a car with AWD and/or better ground clearance, though!

    If you can do without a car, then depending on your situation, $200 per month for a public transit pass may be less expensive than car
    insurance, gas, perhaps a car loan if you have a loan, etc.. And
    without a car, you don't have to worry about the cost of maintenance
    and repairs.

    If you're in a big city, add in the cost of parking tickets. When I was in college in San Francisco without a parking space, tickets may have been my biggest expense.

    This was before smart phones and calendars that could tell you if it was the first or third Friday of the month when looking at the street cleaning
    signs.

    They debate everything, and they always take the worst decision possible.

    I wish I was looking the trainwreck from outside. Then I could have popcorn watching a moronic country self-destruct.

    Besides, it is not a reality yet, but a clearly estated intention. MOst likely they will start soft-removing (aka taxing to death) vehicles they dislike and then proceed down on the rest of vehicles until regular people cannot use a vehicle for personal use anymore. The transition is a decade long plan.

    They started a year ago or so by impossing impossible speed limits and removing parking areas in the cities who are on board with the idea, as to make it impractical to use a car in them. Some cities have gone bonkers, turning some vital roads into single lane avenues so traffic is deadly slow and a car is no use.

    The fun part is most people I know are not on board with the idea. So much for democracy and rules doing what the people tells them to do.

    Yep, parking tickets are another factor.

    Are you people just trying to run conservatives out of any and all forms of media?

    I drive a 2017 nissan versa sedan good old 100% reliable gas engine, I get 39 to 43 MPG and don't ever need to plug it in.
    about $35 to fill it up every other week.

    I think anyone will say anything pushed enough and often enough. I think it's just human nature. Along the way people put labels on things. It had to be better just to see things as it were then defining anything.
