    Having been to Mexico a lot, the people there rely on auto or public transport a lot and when gas prices go up, they suffer way more than us. What I'd do to have early 90s gas prices again.

    People are sending WhatsApp chains coordinating major riots and loots all over the country, I can't imagine what's going to happen next month when the gas price goes up another 8%. People want Peña's head on a spike right now.

    I read a snippet last night. What's the reasoning for the gas to jump 20%?

    Simple. Next time before invading a country with oil for no real reason, just say: "you can do whatever you want as long as oil flows, at a 10% discount."

    to be honest, they are NOT that low to begin with, FIL crosses the border to gas up, he rarely gasses up in Mexico as the pumps are rigged to dispense less than paid :eek:

    I did some quick googling and math in my head, gas is in the 3.30ish USD range there?

    Took Spanish in middle school and high school, 6 quarters in college.
    All I can say is what our 7th grade teacher told us when we went on a "field trip" to the corner store by the school.

    Can we just annex Mexico and kick Florida loose? Our manufacturing infrastructure is already there and that southern border wall will be substantially shorter.
