you are so right, I guess gas will have to get so high that people can't afford it anymore and we ALL STOP buying it!

could you imagine if that ACTUALLY happened what kind of effect it would have on the economy? lol, that would be like armageddon! we wouldn't be able to go to work cuz we couldn't drive without gas or get to the stores or STOCK the stores cuz diesel is higher than reg gas, that would be something...wishful thinking...just to show them a lesson.

WADV--- sure wish I had the goat and little wagon I had as a kid. Course now the goat couldn't pull me--- LOL!! People who remember how to do things the old way are the survivors, aren't they? Horses are wonderful and I hated the day the doc said horseback riding was one thing I couldn't do anymore (spinal disease).

I feel bad for all the people that are losing their jobs, but you can't just blame gas prices, dare I bring it up... UNIONS. Think about it, yes people are buying more "cars" then SUV's, but that would only mean that the demand has SHIFTED to a different vehicle, hence these jobs could be SHIFTED as well. But they aren't, the jobs are just going away, so there is obviously NOT just a shift in what is being bought, but a complete change in how much is being bought. They aren't selling as many vehicles as they used to, no matter what "style" it is, their sales are down. And when you deal with a Union, you have to pay these employees for MONTHS and MONTHS after laying them off. So these 10,000 that are losing their job will make the same amount of money for months only they won't be working. Fucking unions.

I remember someone telling me about 3 years ago "Unions will cause the death of the auto industry" and this is step one. If it was JUST gas prices, then these employees would be needed to make CARS.
