fuel has now become the biggest scam .. what should be around $40 has now been pumped up by speculators and racketeers in what can only be construed as a crime against humanity.

Please read this article very carefully to know what is going on in the oil and petroleum sector and real reasons of oil price rise. The author has been studying the oil sector for past 30 yrs.

Saudi prices don't tally with what Steeroid says ?

I think the prices should never come down. This a kick in the butt for everyone to work on alternative fuel technologies.

some people blame the current food crisis on the diversion of agricultural lands for bio fuel plants.

I think what the world needs is to rethink the way we use energy.
The answer is not in trying to find alternate fuels for cars but to find alternate means of transport.

I am just waiting for the next 10 years of so when the oil supply dries out and forget oil we will be discussing the per liter cost of water.

If you are planning on that big house and that big car, certainly do so. But dont take a loan longer than 2 or 3 years. Keep your liquidity with you. The only investment that will hold is going to be Gold. Keep that and dont trust any bank.

Meanwhile spend some time in the gym. Make yourself stronger. You are going to need that muscle when you start cycling to work at the farm.
Be nice to your family and friends. You are going to depend on them and not that fancy medical insurance when you need help.

The rising cost of fuel is just a pointer to what lies ahead.
be prepared.

You might have alternate transportation, like in Singapore, but people are going to buy more and more cars.
I feel good solutions are to create hybrids, electric or solar powered cars. Along with that improve mass transport, so that people have a choice
