Excited Over High Gas Prices! September 16, 2006 4:48 am

Yesterday I paid $2.199 per gallon of gas! I never thought I’d see the day that I got excited over $2.199. When I first started pumping gas into cars and using my own money to buy it, I think gas was either $0.58 or $0.68 per gallon. The guy sharing my pump last night said he remembered gas being 20 cents a gallon but also that his wage was $1.60 per hour.

I am still confused as to why we never saw $4 or $5 per gallon like “the they” claimed would happen with the pipeline shutdown.

First of all, “Winter Blends” (which are cheaper) are starting to be shipped. Second, the pipeline hasn’t been completely shut down yet. Third, there was no real reason for prices to be where they were other than “Oil Speculators” and sooner or later that euphoria always wears off and prices return to where they should be.

I’d love to place blame on a GOP conspiracy to help with the Novemeber elections, but I just don’t see it.
