Often shortened to gas. The oil-based substance on which most vehicles run and have run since 1900. Unfortunately, gasoline is polluting and expels harmful chemicals when burned such as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and ozone. While many consider gas prices to be high, note that bottled water costs way more than gasoline ever did, and nobody complains about its price. Although harmful in the short run, high gas prices will lead to a reduction in environmentally unfriendly SUVs and a shift to fuel-efficient or alternatively fueled cars (note, however, that high gas prices can be difficult or impossible to cope with during the current recession).
Many people fill their tanks with gasoline during their commute.

Gasoline N.

A highly flammable petrude toxic hydrocarbon, scientifically known as Octane. This hydrocarbon is commonly derived from crude oil which is retrieved from deep within the earth. It is most comonly used in internal combustion engines such as those found in cars, tractors, airplanes and other large and small scale machines. the substance itself has been in use since about the 1900's gaining widespread populairty after Henry Ford's inventionof th Automobile. It has since been a major source of fuel all over the world even driving some countries to attack others for it such as in the battle of stalingrad in World War 2. Gasoline itself is, as stated before, a hydrocarbon with 8 (eight) carbons and and 18 (eighteen) Hydrogens. This source of fuel has caused widespread debate over the harmful gases it produces such as Carbon Dioxide and Carbon Monoxide that pollute the air. it has also been featured in many films and shows as the most precious liquid in the world for example in Mad Max: Road Warrior or The Walking Dead.
(from Mad Max: The Roadwarrior)
Wez: after someone is killed *No!* *No more talk!* We go in! We kill! Kill! We kill 'em! They kill us, we kill them! Kill 'em! Kill 'em! Kill! Kill!
The Humungus: Be still my dog of war. I understand your pain. We've all lost someone we love. But we do it my way!
Wez: Losers... losers wait!
The Humungus: We do it my way. Fear is our ally. The gasoline will be ours. Then you shall have your revenge.
Wez passes out
The Humungus: Take him away.
soldiers drag Wez away; Humungus grabs intercom
The Humungus: There has been too much violence. Too much pain. But I have an honorable compromise. Just walk away. Give me your pump, the oil, the gasoline, and the whole compound, and I'll spare your lives. Just walk away and we'll give you a safe passageway in the wastelands. Just walk away and there will be an end to the horror.
Soldiers start up their vehicles
The Humungus: I await your answer. You have a full day to decide.

Are you insane, like me?
Been in pain like, me?
Bought a $100 bottle of champagne, like me?
Just to pour that motherf*cker down the drain, like me?
Would you use your water bill to dry the stain, like me?
Are you high enough without the Marry Jane, like me?
Do you tear yourself apart to entertain, like me?
Do the people whisper 'bout you on the train, like me?

Sayin' that you shouldn't waste your pretty face, like me?

...
And all the people say:

You can't wake up,
This is not a dream,
Your part of a machine,
You are not a human being,
With your face all made up,
Living on a screen,
Low on self estream,
So you run on gasoline,
*ohs*
I think there's a flaw in my code.
*ohs*
These voices won't leave me alone.
Well my hear is gold, and my hands are cold..
...
Are you deranged, like me?
Are you strange, like me?
Lighting matches just to swallow up the flame, like me?
Do you call yourself a f*cking hurricane, like me?
Pointin' fingers 'cuz you'll never take the blame, like me?
...
And all the people say:
You can't wake up,

This is not a dream,
You are part of a machine,
You are not a human being,
With your face all made up living in a screen,
Low on self esteem,
So you run on gasoline.
*ohs*
I think there's a flaw in my code.
*ohs*
These voices won't leave me alone.
Well my heart is gold,
And my hands are cold...
