The Nucleus For Man Made Global Warming

Many observers argue that the first true automobile was gasoline-powered. They point to not one but two inventors: Karl Friedrich Benz and Gottlieb Daimler. The two men, who had never met previously, filed their patents on the same day—January 29, 1886—in two different German cities.  Benz’s three-wheeled vehicle, which he first drove in 1885, was the first to combine an internal combustion engine with an integrated chassis.  There were no gas stations then so drivers purchased fuel, Ligroin, from pharmacies.  Ligroin was intended as a stain remover but served as the first gasoline. In August, 1888, without her husband’s knowledge, Bertha Benz took her sons, Eugen and Richard, on the first cross country car ride from Mannheim to Pforzheim – taking 12 hours over a distance of 106 kilometers (64 miles). LINK   Bertha Benz and her sons Eugen and Richard during their long-distance journey in August 1888 with the Benz Patent Motor Car. Mercedes Benz has released a short commercial commemorating that history making ride:  see link below, recommend using full screen, sound on.  

Analyzing the facts stated above the first cross country trip by auto was at 5.6 miles per hour. Most people can ride a bike at 8-10 mph without breaking a sweat. You’ve come a long way baby. Of course we can’t say what kind of trail this ride was made on. Most likely it was a horse cart two track with varying surfaces like gravel, sand, mud, etc. Very likely it was a very bumpy ride.

Another Reason to Vote the Bums Out

A gasoline tax map that explains a lot

In last week’s post about ExxonMobil’s 2013 earnings, I noted that we earned about 5.5 cents for every gallon of gasoline and other petroleum products we refined, shipped, and sold in the United States. Consider this: The federal and state and local governments collected 40 to 60 cents per gallon in taxes.
The American Petroleum Institute just updated their map showing the combined local, state and federal tax rate in each state as of Jan. 1, when new taxes took effect.

API-US-Map
API US MapThe federal gasoline tax is the same from coast-to-coast –18.4 cents a gallon – which means any variations have been implemented by state and local governments.
The highest gasoline tax in the country is in California, where it now exceeds 70 cents a gallon. Combined with California-specific fuel-blending regulations that drive up refining costs, these taxes help make Golden State gasoline prices the most expensive in the country.
Several other states, such as New York, Connecticut, and Hawaii, are close to California in terms of the fuel-tax burden their residents bear, though none has yet joined in crossing the 70-cent-per-gallon threshold.
I encourage you to study API’s map (click the graphic above to enlarge), or dig into its interactive version for state-and-local-level specifics.

Grumpa Joe’s Opinion

Cigarettes are taxed worse than gas, but I don’t buy them. Politicians know we need fuel to get to a job if we are still lucky enough to have one. Still, they continue to pick our pockets from every angle they know how. Gas is one of those necessary items we need to stay alive. Here is what I propose, that we use our vote to kick every incumbent State politician out of office and replace them with fresh new crooks who will take a year or two to figure out how to bilk us.
