    I got gas today and it was down to $2.79 a gallon for regular. How much is gas in your area? I am enjoying these lower prices and hope they will stay low for a little while.

    actually - I was being generous - it is closer to $10.11 in The Netherlands

    but turkey pays $10.30
    and Sierra Leone pays $18.40

    in fact, all of the following pay (and always have) more than $5.00 a gallon: Holland, Denmark, Portugal, Finland, Italy, Switzerland, Iceland, Monaco, Spain, Finland, Norway, Poland, Ireland, Germany, Hungary, Guatemala, Greece, UK, Switzerland, Cyprus, Israel, Serbia, Estonia, Luxembourg, Japan, Brazil, South Africa, Singapore, India.. man I could go on... hehehe I was just mentioning your white counterparts, and even those are paying the price - imagine what the African folks are paying - even though they're one of the providers?

    I grow weary of the blatant double standards of folk - want to complain about such a simple thing as gas prices - yet have not even a thought on where it is coming from, what rape of what country it takes to get it for free (nearly).

    instead of thinking "whew! glad I'm not you over there" - think about what it took to get you where you are - ultimately it is on the backs of non-white people.

    Gas prices will continue to rise as Black nations continue to rise and take some control - a simple Nigerian strike would put the USA out of action for a moment - sooo.. where are the loyalties? While the folks in charge will milk every penny and you'll be mad they cant make it cheaper - yet every penny is a whip on the back of your heritage.

    be proud. and complain. all in the same breath.
