Cyber Attack --> Gas Price Increase?

https://www.theguardian.com/technolo...ack-gas-prices

Y'all heard anything about this? I remember noticing gas was above $2.50 here yesterday. Good thing I'm getting over 80 miles a gallon on my current tank...

It's about $6 Canadian ($5 US) here at the moment.

Even so, it's only costing me about $10 a week to drive to work and back.

WaPo Gaslighting much?

Motor fuel is experiencing similar rise to other commodities. Lumber is plus 250%.

Am I bad for wanting fuel prices to increase to the point people would stop buying CUV's?

Our fuel prices are like 110% taxes, as elections coming up they all agree to raise them even quicker as planned.
Because higher transportation costs for everything will save the planet.

People would switch to electric 3Ton-CUVs... I dont think that would be better...

A smaller CUV with a proper engine/transmission can be (almost) just as efficient as a full size sedan or compact station wagon. As they often use the same platforms higher ground clearance ist the biggest difference.

Depends. If your delight is efficient use of resources, then no. If your delight is for humanity to struggle and diminish, with the poorest suffering the most, than yes.
