Drawing on gas prices
The concept of “Drawing on” is simple: three I-Report cartoonists, one politically charged topic. This week, our artists tackled an issue near and dear to the American driver – rising gas prices. (Check out the earlier rounds here: Walter Reed, Academy Awards, Iran and Iraq, Anna Nicole Smith.)

Scroll down to see them all, then let us know which one you like best -- and why -- by posting a comment. Better yet, send your own cartoon response.


Take 1: Demands' - Cartoonist Brixton Doyle


Take 2: 'Gas up!' - Cartoonist Jim Brenneman


Take 3: 'Big-Bucks' - Cartoonist Dean Turnbloom

The first cartoon appears to be saying that the consumer is his own worst enemy...while the second one has the consumer as the victim...while the third has the consumer being a whiner...all legitimate points of view...
Really like the triple take feature. The second toon "Gas Up", reminds me of a David Reddick toon.
As a soon to be former owner of a Suburban, I can relate to these. Now, I don't drive everyday, living in a city with great Mass Transit, and when I do drive I usually use most of the space. Nevertheless, it's disturbing to fill up. I for one am going to rent from here on, hybrids when possible. And when we do finally come out with a reasonable fuel vehicle that holds 2 adults, 2 kids, a dog and all the crap we have, I'll think about owning again.
I think it is funny that people will pay 4 or 5 dollars for a cup of coffee yet whine about the how much gas is?
It's a lot easier to blame others than looking into the mirror. Pointing fingers at the big oil companies (and McDonalds for making us fat, the tobacco companies for forcing us to smoke and get cancer, and so on) just feels better than changing your lifestyle. That gigantic SUV or your $5 cup-o-java is a perfect illustration of how American think. We want all the good stuff but then we whine when it gets too expansive. Stop whining already. I don't see people whine when their mutual funds go up 10% in a year, which most likely invested in big oil companies, McDonalds, and the tobacco companies...
Terrific cartoon. I have been saying this all along...it is not expensive relative to what you pay for other things. Gasoline prices are the perfect example of a free market driving products & pricing. Capitalism at its best.
hey, those of you who are saying that it's ridiculous to pay 4 bucks for a cup of coffee, I don't think you're considering this: (excuse if you don't agree) Many business men and women grab a cup of coffee for $4 in the sense that they don't have time to make any. Gas is mandatory, we need it to get around. and it's not like the prices on the signs are all we pay for gas, we have to multiply by gallons of gas. So the average car alone would need about 40 dollars to fill up. Which seems to me a LOT more exensive than a cup of coffee for 5 bucks. Now those who but big fancy cars with a lot of gas to put IN shouldn't be complaining, but those who are business men and women who have average cars have a reason to complain about gas prices, and I am sure that THEY are the ones thinking about all of their expenses. thanks for reading.. :)
