    Hey Dracula:

    No problem, just kinda caught me by surprise. Didn't think our exports were quite that high.

    Although, I guess just about every mega development project has some U.S. involvement, so it would not be a total surprise to see a number like that I guess.

    Hey nothing to do with gas for locating vehicles but found this article interesting. Was in our major newspaper last Saturday.

    "The U.S. ailine industry is headed for a crash as record oil prices threaten to push several carriers into bankruptcy threatening 'our American Way of life' and industry study said Friday.

    The industry 'is in full blown crisis and heading toward a catastrophe' said a study issued by AirlineForecasts and the Business Travel Coalition.

    At current oil prices near $130 a barrel, several large and Small American Airlines will default on their obligationsto creditors late this year or early in 2009, the study says.
    It shows that oil at $130 wil increase yearly airline costs by $30 Billion, while airlines will be able to generate only $4 Billion in fare increases and incremental fees.
    The implication is that several large and small airlines will ultimately end up in bankruptcy, and of those, some will be forced to liquidate the study said.
    The airlines are on pace to spend $30 Billion more on JET fuel in 2008 versus 2007, it said."


    Okay, so if these folks are correct and they are not pulling a Chicken little scenario here, this could just be the tip of the iceberg in terms of large company failures. This of course has implications for each of us 'cause poop flows downhill!

    Subject: American Mileage

    A recent study conducted by Harvard University found that the
    average American walks about 900 miles a year.

    American Medical Association found that

    Americans drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year.

    This means, on average, Americans get about 41 miles to the gallon.

    Hey, as much as I walk I bet I get 50+ miles per gallon of alcohol. And Al Gore doesn't think I'm doing enough to halt Global Warming!

    Quick question! What side of your car is your gas cap? I drive several different vehicles, and at times can't remember one from another. Most recently I've had to fill up the gas on rental and borrowed cars. I've stuck my head out the window to see if the gas cap was on the left side or the right side, usually to no avail . . .

    I have found if you look at your gas gauge, you will see a small icon of a gas pump. The handle of the gas pump will extend out on either the left or right side of the pump. If the gas cap is on the left, the handle will be pointing to the left. If gas cap is on the right, the handle will be pointing to the right (see photo below). It's that simple!

    Very useful on what side the gas cap is on a vehicle. 1 more thing lets not forget about terrorists. I would much rather pay $10 a gallon then have to worry if I was going to get blown up by a car bomb on my way to the grocery store or have me and my family jailed or executed because my hard headed wife refused to go out in public looking like a tent. Your next president could be banning pork and alcohol. Something to think about with the next election. Freedom is not free and the more we give back to the government the more its gonna cost when we finally wake up and say enough is enough. I myself am allready tired of working twice as hard to support someone that is to efing lazy to get up and get there own, but why should they when all they have to do is stand in line with their hands out. Im starting to wonder whos the fool.

    theone - Welcome Aboard! Thanks for the interaction. It's good to learn of at least one locator that is politically awake! This is the first step. There is so much more information you need to know and so little time left to find it.

    You will never get the REAL story (the truth) from ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, Larry King Live, Glen Beck, Diane Saywer, Matt Lauer or Bill O'Lielly. Do not swallow all the politically correct propaganda from these BULLSHIT artists. Lou Dobbs is the only real mainstream news reader that gives balance to the bullshit. Keep searching the net for the truth. It's not that hard to find. And prepare yourself, and most importantly your family, for what's coming in the next few months.

    Also in my area regurlar unleaded in my area went from $4.25 a gallon to $3.85 in the last week.

    Its pretty sad when someone can name every player on a baseball team and give stats for the last 10 years,(who gives a flying fornication) but cant name a few senators and congress men that are taking so much money from us and giving so freely to free loaders. I say bring on the recession and make it hurt. It might just push these lowlifes north or south of the border dont really care as long as im not the one supporting them I have 2 kids to support. Im tired of supporting them and theirs cause they made, make, and continue to make bad decessions.
