Why have we fallen into the train of thought that there is nothing we can do about the high gas prices?

Question by Jon B: Why have we fallen into the train of thought that there is nothing we can do about the high gas prices?
The news stations just report that gas prices are increasing with no solution to the problem (perhaps they are not allowed to rile the people up). The politicians apparently don’t have to pay for gas hence, it doesn’t affect them. We just keep pumping, keep complaining, and no one gets together to dispute it. What stops Americans from putting their voices together and making a difference? Organizations like UCAN only report where you can pay less for gas, what about fighting for prices to come down? I’m ready are you? Let’s post some viable solutions to the right now problem, not electric cars of tomorrow or alternative fuel solutions (or bikes….) Right Now solutions.

There will be a WIDE price range on all that gear !! Locomotives alone will range from about $ 90 for a simple diesel to $ 300 for a steam 4-8-2 MT-4. And of course, there are brass locos that would run in excess of $ 1000.

I’ll give you a few links to some of the manufacturers I use:

Question by 350ppm: When gas and jet fuel prices quadruple or more, will you Cons take the cheap electric bullet trains?
Gas prices are going to 4 or 5$ this summer and air travel will double or more. .Gas could even go higher and/ or be unavailable like TWICE in the 70’s! . Will the Republi Cons change their mind about HSR then?
By CHEAP I mean their fares! duh. Everything is costly to build.

Take the railroad lantern to a local railroad museum if possible. See if there are any HO model railroad clubs in your area and talk to them about the trains.
