I love how most of the ten cheapest countries are on terrorist watch lists or just plain hate the U.S.
The country we invaded, not on the list.

Maybe something to do with refineries. Everybody hates us anyways, we should just start invading at the top of the list and work our way down. We will forego any invasion for oil at $20 a barrel.

yep. I recall reading somewhere that Saudi has no refineries in country, meaning that they actually must import gasoline. Not sure if its true or not.

That would be awesome to fill up your bike in Venezuela, give the guy a dollar, get 40 cents back and buy like a TV with it or something. I need to move all my stuff there. Do they get cable?

It sure is nice that the U.S of A. has finally guilt tripped its way into being a third world country. Hopefully someday this country will wake up and stop giving away everything that was fought so hard for. And maybe, just maybe it'll prosecute those that profit from giving it to those that would harm us.

Not sure but I heard if the dollar gets any weaker the American Indians are going to buy their land back from us with glass beads and trinkets; or maybe just a coupon for a free meal at the casino.

That would probably be the equalizer on the cheap gas though. A DirecTv bill of $250-300 a month to have it in another country.
