    It really is hard to sympathize with car companies, no matter how much they are hurting. If they cant produce cars people want to buy, then they should be going out of business. I am tired of having them make sh*tty cars and then marketing them so that they will sell. If Government Motors cant hack it, then why are we handing them tax payer money?

    Thank you

    I've always said to people I know that the best way to get this country back into financial shape is to lower gas prices to under $2 a gallon. Of course that won't happen while we're still dependent on everyone else for our oil. We've got plenty but we're not allowed to use it. Go figure.

    Not sure where you live but gas has been over $4 / gal in the California Bay Area for a couple month's now. I recently paid $4.34 a gal for super by the offices where I work ... though the average is $4.20.
    Just goes to show big business doesn't give a $(^*@ about the average American ... most of these oil companies have generated record profits and any time there is even the remotest pretense to raise prices, they do. We don't get any significant amount of our oil from Libya, but man have they milked it.

    Our British hearts bleed for you. Try paying over $8 a gallon and then come back and tell us how you feel about feeling ripped off and that it's not "sustainable"

    Good ol' Stagflation. This is a bad economic situation.

    you think gas is expensive in the states try living anywhere else in the world where it's at least twice as much if not more. how about we grow up and recognize it's a limited commodity that is bad for the economy and bad for our ecosystem. instead of complaining about it's cost we should be looking for alternatives. try riding a bike, guess what, it's free.

    I love how you USA people cry about your gas prices.
    Gas has been $7-$8/gallon for years here in Eastern Europe, and our salaries are nowhere near yours.
    Quit whining.
