During the construction phase......

Dubai, United Arab Emirates



All finished. Notice the size of the palm trees outside.......... Can you guess what it is ???

Remember, this is in the middle of the desert....

The very HOT desert where temperatures get up to 120 degrees.....




But true.....

It is a self contained Ski Resort.......................The INSIDE view:


Now you know why gas is $3.50/gallon!!!!

LOL. Got to love it. Refinement has more to do with the price of gas right now than crude does.

My opinion is With a liberal congress it will be a while before more refineries are built.

No actually I'm not a racist. I'm just a redneck tired of paying extremely high gas prices and all the politically correct crap.
I know Arabs dont have dots, I just thought it sounded cool.
