I have a feeling the guesses were clouded by what was already on the screen - next time perhaps private messages are in order.

Bookshelf picture approaching, slowly.

Yes, there could have been some anchoring effects, but I'm trusting you all not to research online so you should be able to keep your eyes on your own textboxes.

What's with your wildly high estimate of tax, well more than half the retail price? I suppose there are arguments that it should be that high.

I was trying to account for the taxes at all the points on the supply chain, not just those on the consumer at the pump. Wasn't sure how to do that or if I was supposed to.

Hm, I see. Plus factor in the "blood for oil" Pentagon budget, it gets complicated.
