As you can see, it wasn't all that long ago when we were filling up our tanks for a mere $14.00. Today, you're lucky to get a full tank of gas for under $60.00. One things for sure, it seems that the price of gas is more likely to go up in 2009 than to reverse course and spare our bank accounts. When will the pain at the pump ease?

$9 a gallon? That's funny. How much of that is taxes?

Or invade some more countries to get the oil for cheaper prices ...
I thought that was why we invaded Iraq (if you listen to the loony left)? Would invading another country actually help? Then I might be cool with that.

Here is the same data, presented differently.
