According to the Department of Transportation, the average miles per gallon for passenger cars is 22.4 mpg and the SUVs 18 mpg, and with gasoline prices approaching a $4 / gal. price average why no outrage?
According to the Department of Energy, the US dependance on foreign oil has cost us about $1.9 trillion from 2004 to 2008. From 2008 to date, the cost is the about the same, insane.
But since there is no inflation ( X fuel and food ) there's not attention from the nation to this summation.
1980 to 2013
Cost of a gallon of regular gas: $1.25 : 2013 avg. $3.50 - $ 4.00 & climbing.
Cost of a dozen eggs: $0.91 / 2013 avg. $ 1.80+
Cost of a gallon of Milk: $2.16 / 2013 avg. $3+
The reasons they x fuel and food out is because the price increases are assumed to be temporary.
It is #$%$umed so they can make a #$%$-u-me ;)) don't you just want to DIA ?
