Come to Mississippi State. I don't know how good the psych department is, but you would be at the same school as me

I would love to come there. I just need an Accredited University that will help me get the position I am looking for after graduation.

I'm pretty sure that you'll find accredited universities pretty easily. I don't know of any schools that have university status, without having accreditation.

The one closest to me is accredited....but it has an awful rating. So it would be like going to Harvard to be a janitor. Not exactly the right path to get where you are going, but at least with Harvard you can throw out that name. With this University (Clemson University) I can't even use the name to my advantage. I am hoping for a satellite school is close by for eiter UGA or GT. Maybe I will move to Utah and go to BYU

You mormon? lol

If anything, check the U of U out, or possibly ASU or U of A. If you decide that moving is your best option, scour the western US for what seems to be the best that you can afford.

No I am not Mormon. However, I was out in Utah this past summer for about 4 days. I would have looked you up while I was out there but it was a family emergency (on my wife's side). She has family out there. I will say the approach to get into Utah is interesting. It's like the plane takes a nose dive. My favorite thing was the downtown mall that is an outside mall. That was pretty sweet. Plus the weather was like 80 degrees with no humidity the entire time. I really enjoyed myself while I was there.

Well, that would have been moot, as I moved to AZ almost a year ago... in late April.

Yeah the gateway is pretty dope. The weather is excellent when it IS nice, but I hate the snow and the cold.

Taxes, bro.

Who decides tax rates?

The government.
I decided to do some research on that.

It pretty much boils down to this "Gasoline costs roughly the same to make no matter where in the world it's produced, according to John Felmy, chief economist for the American Petroleum Institute. The difference in retail costs, he said, is that some governments subsidize gas while others tax it heavily."

So what you are saying is mostly true except you left out that the us government subsidizes the oil industry.

"TAX SUBSIDIES

The federal government provides the oil industry with numerous tax breaks designed to ensure that domestic companies can compete with international producers and that gasoline remains cheap for American consumers. Federal tax breaks that directly benefit oil companies include: the Percentage Depletion Allowance (a subsidy of $784 million to $1 billion per year), the Nonconventional Fuel Production Credit ($769 to $900 million), immediate expensing of exploration and development costs ($200 to $255 million), the Enhanced Oil Recovery Credit ($26.3 to $100 million), foreign tax credits ($1.11 to $3.4 billion), foreign income deferrals ($183 to $318 million), and accelerated depreciation allowances ($1.0 to $4.5 billion).

Tax subsidies do not end at the federal level. The fact that most state income taxes are based on oil firms' deflated federal tax bill results in undertaxation of $125 to $323 million per year. Many states also impose fuel taxes that are lower than regular sales taxes, amounting to a subsidy of $4.8 billion per year to gasoline retailers and users. New rules under the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 are likely to provide the petroleum industry with additional tax subsidies of $2.07 billion per year. In total, annual tax breaks that support gasoline production and use amount to $9.1 to $17.8 billion."

so basically, he DID get it right. Saying the government subsidizes something and saying the government taxes something are pretty much equivalent.

Yeah, I don't understand how he did the research, read tax multiple times in the paragraph, and then tried to say it wasn't government taxes which determine gas price variations by country.

Anyways, if you want lower gas prices, bust your government's ass about it. The oil business is one of the lowest profit margin businesses out there.
