$4.09 gas

So we had to stop and get gas on the way home yesterday, because our car politely told us with a flashing pump icon that we were about to be stranded if we didn’t do so immediately.

$4.09/gallon for premium (not that $3.89 for the lower grade is any better) = $65 for the whole tank.

Wow!  – and it’s not going to get better any time soon.

And evidently, Bush went to the Saudis and politely asked them to produce more oil so the prices would come down.  Yes, that’s right, the leader of the “free capitalist world” went to what is effectively a giant corporation (which we LOVE here in the good old US of A!) and asked them to make less money.  Because that totally works.  I guess this was his second visit, and he made the same stupid trip in January too.  Wow.  What makes you think they (or any company) would care about anything other than the bottom line?  Words fail to describe the stupidity involved.
