This story does not give me gas
Originally published August 22, 2003
I cruised home on Wednesday evening and needed to buy gas, but I decided to wait and do it on the way to work the next morning. The station with the fast pumps was on the wrong side of the road. Gas was $1.49 per gallon at the time.
The next morning, when I stopped at the fast gas-pump store, I paid $1.56 for gas. The price of gas went up seven cents per gallon overnight.
It might get worse.
Dwindling supplies in the face of increased demand threaten to push pump prices over the national record set last mid-March, when markets were shaken by the prospects of a war with Iraq.
When you pay the highest prices ever known for gas, just think about the caribou you are saving in the ANWR. YOU may be getting drilled in the wallet, but we're NOT drilling oil there. That's a wonderful thing, isn't it? Saving Gaia and all that horseshit? Aren't you a happy little environmentalist?
If you are, you can bite ME.
