prices going up. "Well when you adjust for inflation over the past thirty years we are lucky to be paying such a relatively low price for gas."

It may be true but you could say that about milk, hydrogen peroxide and Pepsi Cola too.

I wonder if the same people that say this will get pissed off when Taxi Cabs, exterminators, plumbers and the city transit systems need to raise prices on account of higher fuel costs.

That's all I have to say.

2. Have to agree with you....
But those people who pay $50K+ for any car, SUV, or truck... REALLY shouldn't complain about $2/gal for their personal vehicles either!

Of course, as you point out, higher fuel costs get passed on. So rich or poor, we all have a stake in not being gouged.
