Gas Prices

I believe that they are absolutely ridiculous. Why are our gas prices going up what seems every couple of weeks? Do the big oil companies get some kick out of getting the money that we are throwing away on high gas prices? What they don't realize is that if they keep raising the prices, people are going to have to find other ways of transportation. Some people just don't have the money to pay $4.oo a gallon every day. And imagine what it would be like when teenagers my age are old enough to drive? We'll probably end up driving hybrids, which are actually very good cars. Speaking of hybrid cars, the big gas companies are going to be losing more money if cars that don't run on gasoline are being mass-produced. The big gas compainies only have two choices, lower the gas prices or keep them where they are and become bankrupt within a couple of years. Either way you look at it, the gas companies are eventually going to be bankrupt if we are running out fossil fuel.

Until recently, it had gone past $4 a gallon here. I bet closer to chicago it might have been closer to 5, if not over. :[
