Dear Ram -
I thought that everyone that owned a motorhome was in that bracket :-)
Americans have been raised on cheap fuel. They live in giant fuel
wasting homes built far away from their jobs to avoid living near "the
wrong kind" of people. The most precious thing we all have is time - and
Americans squander that time by spending two of their sixteen waking
hours a day going back and forth to work.
The great equalizer is time. We all only get 24 hours a day and if we
are lucky we get 70 years of it.
When gasoline goes to $5.00 a gallon - and it will - it will be tragic
seeing all of these Americans altering their life styles to live within
their means - smaller houses - closer to work - public transportation -
Unless Bush wins these "oil wars" and then we get our gasoline for free
- gasoline will rise to $5.00 a gallon. Plan for it now. Even if we win
the "oil wars" Halliburten will still be charging you $5.00 a gallon.
