Your subsides and taxes were differently related. Taxes are not the reason for the price of milk right now, the fact that it is high in demand is. The money from the carrot can come from many different place, but taxes are a very good source. Presently there are not very large subsides for milk farmers, although it appears that things might change very soon.

It's still in the 1.90's in Rhode Island.

It's still in the 1.90's in Rhode Island, where I live. But I'm at college in new york, and it's about 1 vital organ per gallon here. No wonder you never get the same taxi cab driver...anyway, the price of gas is getting less and less important, or less crucial, as far as money goes--because the miles per gallon of all the cars keeps going up. Even the new cars geared towards younger people are kind of conservative, which is a good sign, I think. the new scion uses 32-38, and that's much higher than all the trucks and big honkin hunks of metal our parents drove. Here's the site for the scion, it's got a bunch of other money-savers on it, a toolbar that you can't beat with a stick...and the cartoon is funny. Don't pick up hitchikers if you don't want to lose your car...

have a day.

Simon.

SJ edit: okay this toobar thing is getting annoying - once is enough Simon.

A bike will do about 50-60mpg if you dont thrash it, the problem is that you know you will. The biggest reason to get a bike is your exapt from the congestion charge. But then again so is a LPG Hummer H2!

Yeah im thinking of getting some gerry cans tomorrow and go and invest in a few hundred worth of fuel.

The real scandal is that there is the posiblity of killing 2 birds with one stone.

If tax breaks wer given on Bio Diesel and Bio Ethonol then we could help the enviroment, help sort out the comman agracultural policy. We might even get some cheaper fuel in the process.

How much?!?.... you wouldn't want to break the law now lol, I must admit, I'm tempted to do just that, I was watching the news yesterday and a Filling Station in North London is charging 1.12 a litre on Super Unleaded...Ok, it's higher octane, but still ludicrous!

You wouldn't be saying that if it cost you $100 to put 60litres of fuel in your car!

it isnt breaking the law as long as you store it properly.

I assumed you'd be storing it at your house, or in your garage (lock up), in which case, it would be against the law

You can store it at your house if you do it properly, i can put it in the cage with the astettlene tanks. There both fuels so its fine.
