Gas Prices Give Me Gas

Gas prices continue to rise, making our complaints last year look like childish whining. In fact, prices are the highest (by far) they’ve been in the last decade. While they’re also higher than during the 1981 crisis, when inflation is accounted for, the price in 1981 is equivalent to about $2.76. But, from the looks of it, we may well surpass that this summer, possibly hitting up to $3/gallon. Fortunately my car’s fuel efficiency has been incredible recently (I’ve been getting 30-35 mpg even with stop-and-go driving), but these increases are still pretty painful.

The bright side: at least we can laugh harder at soccer moms that own gas-guzzling SUVs. -ram
