Skip to comments.Why you should love $5 gas
Posted on 05/26/2011 9:12:38 AM PDT by greatplains
As you pump 13 gallons into your Honda CR-V -- American's best-selling SUV with 28 mpg on the highway and 21 in town -- it's nearly impossible to view the $50 you're spending with a positive attitude.
With the national average for regular at $3.81, it's easy to label oil executives as pond scum, but try to remain open-minded. Think of the big picture: Though that promised road trip to Disney World has gone up in carbon monoxide, high gas prices may actually have an upside. Not for you and your family personally, maybe, but perhaps for the United States as a whole. What if gas hit $5 a gallon? Here are some benefits (and we're serious about most of them):
-Fewer people would die on the road.
-Demand for high-mileage cars could grow.
-Shorter security lines
-High prices lead to lower prices.
-End of wars
-Local Business could profit
-It's all about democracy

And $100 gas would have us all living in Utopia!
When does the “Good things about the bad economy” articles get noticed by the sheeple??
I hope it hits $10 a gallon about two months before the 2012 election and stays there ...
ONLY if I owned the local QUICKYMART!!
I’ll give you some reasons we should hate $5 gas:
-the people most affected can’t afford to buy a new efficient car
-cheap energy = growth
-People have to get to work, well, the ones who still have jobs, many can’t take public transit as none is available, and they don’t have the time or energy to walk 21 miles to work every day
The State Run Media continues to shed whatever credibility that it has left.
Why you should love $5 gas
Oh is Barry paying ???
Most of the comments are trashing this article.
The oil execs aren’t the ones who are pond scum.
Its 0Bama, Salazar, and their envirocommie supporters.
The administration is currently in contempt of federal court over the insane drilling moratorium. Why isn’t anyone in this piss-poor excuse for an administration in jail?
Next week: Why being homeless may be the best thing that ever happened to you!
” Not for you and your family personally, maybe, but perhaps for the United States as a whole. “
IOW - you are just a cog in the Great Machine of State — your welfare and well-being is immaterial to the Greater Good!!!
This is straight out of an Orwell or Huxley novel.
Let me see if I have figured this out. When a R is president and the price of gas goes up, it is him enriching his rich oil buddies. When a D is president and the price of gas goes up, it is a wonderful solution to all of the ills of the world.
You just can’t polish some turds.
“End of wars..?”
What numbskull would think that this would end war. We are heavily into, along with every other country, Resource Wars.
Less oil means more war.
omg... that’s not satire
these people are in full blown, down and gagging, support and cover for the current _resident
we should all just stop paying taxes in protest.
after all, using the ‘logic’ here, there’d be less government waste... less people dying due to illegal wars... less federally funded abortions... less pollution... less global warming... etc
