Gasoline

Last Friday, on the way to work, I filled up for $2.81/gallon. That same day, on the way home, it was $3.07. Then up to $3.17 yesterday.

So imagine my surprise when I saw this on my way home today:

I had kept hearing that by summer gas might be $4.00 per gallon, but I wasn’t quite buying it (literally or figuratively), but after seeing this it’s no longer that difficult to fathom.

At a national average, prices are at $3.23 – so clearly we’re above the mean. Not coincidentally, public transit ridership is at a 50 year high in some cities.

On the rest of my drive, I thought to myself: maybe this is all Hugo Chavez’s doing, by withholding oil to the U.S. But you know – that would be a small price to pay, considering I’m still liking him for calling Bush ‘the devil’ while addressing the U.N..
