Well, we in the UK pay ALOT more for our gas/petrol prices than you folks in the US. We pay £1 a litre here, thats like $9 a US gallon.
But I think that high gas prices are a very good thing (and I wish people in America paid more for their gas)- it means that more people will realise that we need to seriously think about investing in alternative energies/technologies, or just cycling where we would have taken the car, etc. Or maybe having even just having smaller cars.
Don't forget, oil WILL run out in our lifetimes,
something Bush seems to be oblivious not to mention anthrodgenic climate change!!
Now I realise that I dropped history at the age of 14, but I don't think the US single handledly beat Stalin/Hitler/Saddam to the best of my knowledge. Mr Tony Blair took the UK to Iraq as well I believe. And perhaps Churchill might have done something too to stop Hitler? Not to mention the other European countries, Like France, etc. Anyway I would like to point out that Hitler and Russia were AGAINST each other in WWII.
