    Ladydocm is right. If you simply buy some ExxonMobil or ConocoPhillips stock, it will act as a good hedge against rising gas prices. If gas prices rise, you will spend more money at the gas pump, but make money in the stock. If gas prices fall, you will save money at the gas pump but lose money in the stock. In the end, things will balance out.

    Of course, if you replace your SUV with a fuel-efficient car or replace your motorboat with a sailboat, gas prices will bother you much less. Personally, I'm tired of SUV drivers whining about gas prices. They're the ones causing the problem to begin with. It's supply and demand; SUV drivers demanding more gas cause prices to rise for everyone.

    As far as the environment is concerned, higher gas prices are a good thing because they encourage people to conserve energy.

    And yes, bottled water, soda, milk, orange juice, beer, and wine, etc. are all more expensive than gasoline.

    We are now looking at $3.50 for gas and I think it will stay around that price. With the holidays coming they are going to keep the prices right where they want them and guess what we just have to pay....

    Think America has got to come to terms that cheap fuel no longer exists, time to change to hi power efficient engines as Europe and Japan have done.


    How do the Europe and Japan engines compare to the Northstar? I am real happy with the Northstar power and economy, but I may just not know any better.

    Its nothing to do with profits, its to do with global demand, China is eating up fuels at huge rate, 10 years ago everyone had a bike, now they are clamouring to get 4 wheels under them. Taxation is a huge cause of overall cost the British gov. bless their dirty cotton socks takes around 88% of a gal. of gas in tax. In the USA the cars you drive are similar to those we drive in Europe except we drive those cars with high out put HP from engines a third or a half the cubic capacity. Europeans expect high speed low fuel consumption and we buy the cars that deliver, you got to learn that in the USA

    Well Sharp1,

    Expect oil to head toward $150 U.S. a barrel within 12 to 24 months..this is insiders information from the Calgary oil conference from a Billionaire in Texas who has 20 research staff minoriting the energy situation..George Soro Canadian Billionaire thinks it is headed higher and another Billionaire hedge fund manager said $225 a barrel...I think $150 a barrel is the most realistic considering the situation we are in..inventories are just keeping up..also oil is adjusting for inflation etc..so is gold..as they follow one another.

    There will be correction in between but high oil prices will be the norm until new production from new sources comes on line..if the Canadian $ comes to par U.S. $ as is expected then it will shield us a lot from oil prices..

    Bill Gross has written to his subscribers and said to sell U.S. assets and buy foreign one and he manages the largest bond fund in the world so he must know the U.S. $ is about to take a big hit and the U.S. housing Bubble is coming down which will effect everything there is to because Amercians have been living on credit too long and most of them have never learned from historical records that too much credit = bust...so they are about to learn a painful experience.

    Buffet is $37 Billion in cash and investing in companies outside the U.S. so it should be a warning bell that something is coming soon.

    If anybody read my post on the stock market thread and saw Dr. Martin Weiss recommendation then they will be wise to follow his advice..that is all and God bless everyone.

    BQ

    P.S. Sharp1 I would say you are right $1.50 gas in the future, when ? don't know, anything can turn things upside down in a snap as things are shaky a bit.


    Thanks BQ...I will check your post out re: Dr. Martin Weiss's advice. You haven't steered me wrong so far! :-)

    According to CNBC, Buffets stock portfolio is $36 billion so if the cash position of $37 billion quoted here is correct, it would make WB about 50% invested. I think having cash right now is a very smart play. Evidently WB does also. According to CNBC, BRK's 3 biggest purchases during the 1st qtr. of '06 (the most recent available published info. re: BRK) were in GE, UPS and COP. All 3 are American companies.
    I agree with BQ. regarding precious metals. I think he is wrong regarding oil and gas prices. That's what makes a market place.

    It's not a matter of history Sharp One. It's a matter of supply and demand. As far as being an optimist. It works well for me. Don't you think? lol. Happy Mothers Day to all.



    Bill, in that case, supply and demand would require that prices INCREASE in the summer since people are going on vacations. Maybe we should all walk to our vacation destinations??? Swim, perhaps??? How does one lug luggage when one swims? Nude beaches? What about toiletries?

    Hmmmmmmmm .........


    True Diane. Demand may increase going into the summer but I think that the supply will increase even faster than the demand increases and by mid July the price of gasoline will fall to the $2.50 USD per gal. range as a result. I do like your idea on how to combat these high energy prices, however. More nude beaches. A very novel and erotic approach. I am going to write to my congressman about it.

    In my home Province it is $4.84 a gallon and they expect it to go over $5. sooner or later...so you think you pay a lot for gas...sheeshhh !!! enjoy your summer and quit complaining..it could be worse..over here we are feeling the pinch.

    BQ

    Feeling the pinch? lol...the life was sucked out of me today filling up my jeep.

    I'm sure that I will see what it cost in Canada because will be traveling through it this summer, I know it is always more than the United States...

    In the Maritme Provinces gas is $1.21 a litre and it has gone down to $1,16 a couple of days ago..if the Canadian Dollar continue climbing it should stabilize prices, my Van cost $100 to fill up..

    Wee that was a good one about your Jeep lol..

    unsnaggedeagle, if you stick in the Western Provinces you will pay less than if you come to Quebec and the Maritmes,,,you will see your wallet deflate lol..good luck with your trip.

    BQ


    Gas in Calgary is presently 105.9/litre. ($1.05) I was driving in interior B.C. earlier this week and the price was $1.12/litre. That price is higher than the start of July last year, so you can be sure that by mid-July the price will be around $1.20 to $1.25/litre. I'm actually anticipating as high as $1.50/litre by August. This will be in B.C.'s interior...cheaper in Alberta by about .10 cents. Now I could be wrong, but I'm going by past history, what the price has always done around mid-July to end of August.

    If you are in my area look me up. I could be in interior B.C. or Calgary depending on your timing.

    Had to drop in on this thread...when I lived in Canada, petrol was 0,50/litre...and now that I work from home most of the time, I rarely need to go anywhere...the last time I saw a gas station was over a month ago. Even then, I put in $20, which was just above 1/4 tank. Thankfully, everything I need is fairly close by (well, not everything! That's what I'm here for...)...and my SUV hardly warms up along the way. Here's photo sent to me when gas was around $1.80/gal., and it's even more appropriate today! All the Best, Pentora

    I guess I am a contrarian. I expect to see oil below $60 bbl. and gas around $2.50 a gallon USD by mid July.
