Hey, they are only $5.82 in my area. It'll be a week or so before
they go over the $6.00 mark. Enough time to do some more of
the jack-rabbit starts at the lights, leave some rubber behind at
the driveway, that sorta thing. Maybe buy a new truck with 15MPG
rating. Shucks, no need to be trying to conserve. 'Cause we are
'Mericans, we DESERVE to be able to do that.
Be glad you're in the USA. Swimbo and I just returned from a ten day
group tour of Ireland and gas there costs about $8 US a gallon.
A recent "Pluggers" cartoon brought back memories. It said:
A plugger is a guy who remembers when gas cost $1 for FOUR gallons, now
it costs $4 for ONE gallon.
I think the lowest I remember gas was 32 or 35 cents but that was just
the last sign I remember. I must have been about 17 y/o. 1971
I remember back then we were much more concerned with the price of milk,
bread and eggs.
I quit smoking just before cigarettes went over $1/pack.
The cost to Saudi Arabia for a barrel of oil is $2.
I think, even is Saudi Arabia, the days of oil just flowing out of the
ground are over. I remember a show where they said it cost them
$40/barrel to drill and cart/pipe across the dessert. Something a lot
of people don't understand is that there is plenty of oil but access
makes it cost more. Shale oil must be extracted with heat or chemicals
and I don't think there is any profit if commodity is going for $50/barrel.
When I was a kid, 18 cents would get you a loaf of bread, a pack of
cigarettes, a quart of milk or a gallon of gas ;)
First house I rented in 1965 cost 15 cents/gallon for heating oil.
I just spent $800 two weeks ago for 200 gallons to fill my oil tank.
I may be older than some of you. When gas went from $.11 to $.13 per gallon
dad said we cannot drive unless needed. Milk was $.35 per gallon and came in
a glass gallon container that had a wire loop handle for carrying. WW

think the onboard computer would know what to do with a half-alcohol
half-water mix. Maybe moonshine that had been run through 3 times....
