I will not be driving to Atlanta to see a game this year with these gas prices and if some how Obama becomes president they are going to jump sky high. He says he is going to tax the oil companies. This man has no clue at all. Big companies don't pay taxes they pass it off to the consumer. Some of the things he is saying and only people who can walk to the games will be able to go. He promised change, better hope you have some under the cushions of your couch:hehe:

yea he will, what will stop the oil companies from increasing the prices and making us pay the tax?

LOL @ jgentry162

The taxes on US corporations are higher when compared to any other country except Japan according to McCain. Gasoline was $1.50 when Bush was elected and it has more than doubled since then.  So much for your Obama=higher gas prices theory.  Inflation has also doubled but is still outperformed by oil and gasoline prices.  Oil is going higher REGARDLESS of who is the next President.  It's ridiculous to think that cutting corporate income taxes for American oil companies will affect global demand in Russia, India, and China!  LOL!!!

If the domestic gasoline refineries actually had the power to raise gas prices to $6/gallon here in America without effectively KILLING OFF the domestic demand for their own product, trust me they would.  The input cost of oil has put a major hit on their refining profits in reality and they are calling on their Federal government representatives to ACT now! Refining gasoline is not as profitable as it used to be because costs are up and gasoline demand here in America is posting a decline for the first time in years.  People are selling their SUVs for goodness sake.  The companies who are making out like bandits are the ones with the ability to pull oil out of the ground and sell it to the highest bidders like the Bush Administration.

Show me where Obama has pledged to keep buying oil for the 98% full Strategic Petroleum Reserve at all time high record prices (like the Bush Admin has already done) or STFU.  Pick up a newspaper.  American car companies are selling more cars in India and China than they are in their home country.  China is almost in an energy crisis.  India has more children than the entire population of the US.  America's largest corporations are "teaching" people all over the world how to drive cars and eat more than 1 meal a day.

The fact is the oil companies already receive some of the largest appropriated tax benefits known to US tax code.  They have killed a President in the past when these loopholes were threatened. They don't stand to see their taxes increased with Obama so much as having their subsidies aka corporate welfare, reduced considerably.  Reason being they are companies that do a majority of their business overseas, yet they enjoy the protection of US laws and benefits.

I bought season tickets, but I'm kinda regretting it for this reason. Even with Marta I have to drive 35 miles to and from every game.

That's why I moved into town.  It's about 5-10 minutes to the closest Marta station for me.

I also don't have to fight the traffic anymore... which is very nice....

But season tickets can be hard to justify with ever increasing gas prices and a team in rebuilding mode.

I'm spending about $2,000 on tickets and will probably spend another $1,000 for gameday expenses if I make it to every game this year...

I couldn't help myself.  I usually stay out of this but... In 2005 the young Sen Obama's answer to the oil crisis was to drive less.  Wow that's it.  He's a genius.  That is the typical stick the head in the sand and do nothing approach.  OK so he did say have more stations with Ethanol which in the end creates more pollution and the cost would quickly shift to being the same.  No mention of building more refineries, stronger incentives for alternative fuel vehicles, go after the top guys in the oil industry which they at least are starting to question now.

I certainly don't have the answer but drive less is simply a do nothing answer because not everyone has that luxury especially in commercial transportation which in the end effects the cost of virtually everything.

Please let us all know this wonderful plan of his. :hehe:

Obama is just fake smiles and broken promises. Oh wait, nobody knows what the **** he is going to do in office because he hasn't told anyone his plan because he doesn't have one.
