Who would have thought I'd be so excited to find gas for only $3.13 a gallon? As opposed to $3.49 9/10 for Regular in my own neighborhood.
I think it's miraculous that we don't have rampant murder at the gas pumps every day. We complained when the price went to $2.00 a gallon, but we kept buying it because our entire culture is built on gas consumption. We watched passively as it climbed up, up, up, speculating as to whether it would actually reach $3.00. Until it did.
I can't imagine how it must be for those who commute to minimum wage jobs every day. There is something terribly obscene about forcing people to choose between milk and toilet paper so they can get to work.
Where is it going to end?
