Is this a sad sign of the times we live in or what? Betting on gas prices! The worst part is that the line is even on gas hitting $4.00 a gallon in short order. Anybody wanna take that bet? I'll stay out of it myself... I only gamble with chips that aren't worth anything. Feel free to comment on the gas prices in your area, but remember that what we are talking about here is the national average gas price. I understand that in some parts of the country, you may be paying over $4.00 a gallon already, which is probably why nobody would be surprised if that figure swept the rest of the nation too. Where I live, finding gas under three-fifty would send the lines into the street. Of course, ethanol is cheaper, but you need a flex-fuel capable car to use it of course, which I do not have. But, there is no sense complaining about the prices, since I do have a choice. Remember to check all of the alternative choices out there when it's time to purchase your next vehicle. Electrics should hit the market sooner or later, and diesel is currently selling well below the price of gasoline.
Or I suppose if you won a bunch of money betting that prices would go up, you might not mind the high prices so much. Or maybe you would, if all of your winnings went into filling your own tank. That sounds like the start of some kind of vicious circle to me! I need to go lie down.
