its your friendly OT Moderator here with a few hints as to how this thread might stay open.
1- Get it back on topic. The thread is not about urban planning, neither is it about the political consequences of the petrochemical industry.
2- Do not dismiss out of hand other posters viewpoints or sensitivities, it can cause deep offence to be told that you, or your beliefs, or indeed your country is hilarious.
3- Do not take offence at a post when none is intended by the poster. Language, especially common phrases, can be a barrier to communication where there is no common idiomatic understanding.

In contributing to forums, I notice quibs have their place are should be liberaly used as long as they add to the context though, and I am borrowing from Lord Chesterfield "Humor is like the sun, where there is none it is very cold but where it is too close it burns", - funny that he should say that two hundred years before these forums appear then.

I understand and support the purpose of this thread, and i would like to leave it open.However, G2G is not a political forum, and while users have contributions they would like to make, other members personal beliefs must be treated with respect. The subject isnt painfull itself at all, but we needed to set some guidelines so as to ensure that the contributors didnt unintentionally cause offence to anyone.

It's not a matter of "poor planning". It's more a matter of "we have the space, so use it!" Why build cities so close to each other if you still have thousands of miles left to build it?
And btw, normally when leaving the city one takes the airplane because the USA is so big. Whenever I leave New York to visit my family in another State, I usually take the jet.

I did alot of geography when i was at school(was good at, its very interesting stuff when you get into it) so i am always looking at palces i visit with a geographers eye so to speak and breaking it down into how many ways planners break the excepted rules. American citiese are very interesting case studies they are the rules gone to far its quite an interesting thing to observe only place in the world where the cities where made to fit the urban expansion models rather than the models being made of them.
Ahh well completely off topic now, i could probably ask my dad and he could give me the answer according to the petrochemical industry as to when it is going to hit $100 but it is late and he probably wouldnt tell me knowing him. It would just be conjecture and i am not a fan of conjecture and if it raises to $100 a barrel it matters what you pay at the pump. So in britian if i was to go buy a barrel of petrol it would cost me 265 dollars.
