    It was at at $4.02 in WDM this morning. That means, if it was at $3.67 before Saturday, and if it's true that it'll jump another $.20 tomorrow morning, that's a freaking $.60 jump in three days. Unreal.

    Even the price of oats to feed the horse team is going up. Schwinn might go back in business.

    Gas is free if you have an "East-side credit card."

    And the price of plastics and fertilizer should be going up as more airlines shut down their old planes...

    If you, me, and everyone else continue to pay for it, then they might as well keep going up 20 cents a day.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    According to one site, it's already 4.14 in Iowa City, although it hasn't been confirmed by any secondary reports....

    It may still be cheap. But new technology will take time to develop and the price of gas is going to keep going up.

    The in-laws bought a huge motor home a few years ago and have been complaining about the cost of gas. Just the other day they complained it would cost $1000 to drive from point A to B. When they bought it, it would have cost them $500. The cost has doubled. The cost of lots of things have doubled. The cost of the gas is probably the cheapest thing about buying a motor home.

    Still new technology would be better.
