Sadly, I think the answer is yes, yes it can.

The answer is obvious, get a motorbike! I do 62 miles to the gallon on mine filling up every 2 weeks and it only costs me £10. And all thats with me revving the crap out of it because I like the noise! :D

LOL. I also love revving too. :D I don't have bike cos my wife wont let me us as the roads in South Afrca is not safe. I just use my friend's whenever I can. :D

Yes the gas price will go up. :P That is life and we'll have to accept it. Sooner the oil well will dry up and we'll have to look for other kind of fuel. Maybe someone wll invent a engine that runs on sea-water (we'l never run out f it). LOL

I hedge the rising cost of Gas by owning Oil linked Stocks. Every time I pay more at the gas station my porfolio rises more than enough to compensate :D So it's only the gas hikes that mysteriously occur despite no rise in cost of oil or shortage that perturb me.

Fuel around SouthWest UK works out at about $8.30 per US gallon. I did the conversions so you can see the comparison to what you are paying.

Almost the same price here for a gallon in Germany as in UK. Prices will surely go up. Investors sell dollars and invest them in oil and gold (not only). So dollar will go more down compared to other currencies (For 1 Euro u get already 1,55 $) and oil price up

UK has hit £5 a gallon - this must be about $8 based on US rates!

I find it funny the way our american freinds complain about their "gas" (actually petrol - which is a liquid) prices and continue to make those noisy V8´s. We europeans are faithfull to our inline 4 cylinders running on diesel, yet seem to pay an absolute fortune on petrol and/or diesel prices. What it all comes down 2 is: TAX.
