HOT OFF THE SHOW! Oil & Gas Prices

"Oil Shortage Cause" by Jay D. Dyson at
(Caption: Why the United States has an oil shortage: The oil is loaded in these states...but the Dipsticks are located in Washington, D.C.)

My husband, Duane and Retired Navy Rear Admiral Benjamin Montoya, former CEO of the Public Service Company of New Mexico, the state's major utility company, joined me on today's show to discuss alternative fuel sources such as bioenergy, biofuels, biomass, including the use of nuclear energy, in order to become less dependent on Arab oil. Immediately after the show listeners sent emails thanking us for the show. If you missed it you can hear it online, see below.

In the meantime, this was sent to me...a little humor to help ease the pain of your next trip to the pump...

Gas is expensive, but what if our cars ran on...

Diet Snapple 16 oz $1.29...$10.32 per gallon
Lipton Ice Tea 16 oz $1.19...$9.52
Gatorade 20 oz $1.59...$10.17 per gallon
Ocean Spray 16 oz $1.25...$10.00 per gallon
Brake Fluid 12 oz. $3.15...$33.60 per gallon
Vick's Nyquil 6 oz $8.35...$178.13 per gallon
Pepto Bismol 4 oz $3.85...$123.20 per gallon
Whiteout 7 oz $1.39...$25.42 per gallon
Scope 1.5 oz $0.99...$84.48 per gallon

Here's the real kicker...Evian water 9 oz for $1.40...$21.19 per gallon...for water!

So, the next time we're at the pumps at least we can be glad they're not filled with Pepto Bixmol or Nyquil!


Hear the show (See 5/8/06)
