For me it's the price of dinner..."Do I eat today, or fill my car with gas?"

:D

It's around $3 here as well (:

They have said it will rise about 50 cents in the next few days, I feel sorry for anybody who is already paying more than 3.

Will congress approve US govt to use method that used by Indonesian govt to make gas price low like that ?.

Indonesian govt bought gas in higher price and sell it to the people in lower price. In 2010 they spent more than US$ 6 billions for it. Without this subsidy gas price in Indonesia will going higher around (or more than) US$ 3 per gallon.

I doubt it. People would be in an uproar and calling our President a "socialist" again.
