That Gaseous Bubble Surfaces, Again….

A few quotes from me with regards to similar numbers, but for opposite reasons…

A few months ago I saw this sign

At that time I remember saying, “Hey, look, now we’re almost up to $4.00 a gallon for regular.”, and I was furious that I was being raped in the rear (That’s where I carry my wallet), again.

It seems that those gas prices which were once on their way up, are now slowly on their way back down…..

Did Al Capone need to post a notice when he grabbed the money?

Today I said: “Hey, look, now we’re almost down to $4.00 a gallon for regular.”, Somehow I’m expected to be happy to see this change?

It seems that I’ve been reprogrammed, I’ve made it successfully through yet another “re-education” cycle, one in which I’ve been taught to be grateful for paying “Only” $4.00 (USD) a gallon for gas, much the same way as I was taught to be comfortable with $3.00 a gallon gas a few years ago, and $2.00 a gallon gas a few years before that, and etc, etc, etc………..

    Hey! Are you reading my brain? While out shopping this morning I saw Chevron posting $4.41 for wtf octane. Wow. Such a deal! And just when I’d gotten used to $4.49. . . . .

      Well Lulu, I suppose that if you’re driving one of those rice burners with a 10 gallon tank, you could take that .08 a gallon savings and buy yourself a half of a 20oz bottle of Pepsi, or 4/5ths of a copy of today’s L.A. Times, but I think you’ll need to stop spending so much time thinking about that chateau you’ve been looking at in the South of France, it might be a while…….
      Regardez Vous, On Garde, and all that merde…..
