I haven't had much to say for a week, but I didn't want this blog to go dormant. So tonight I did what I usually do in this case: I dug through old posts in search of repeatables.
And I found this brief post from September 8, 2006:
Gas is only $2.75/gallon today! Woohoo!
I can't believe I'm doing mental hi-fives at the Exxon because gas is ONLY 2.75!! I'm happy the price is going down. I paid $3.09 per gallon at this same station just 2 months ago. I've paid as much as $3.59, shortly after Katrina.
But even $2.75 seems high. Only 20 years ago we were horrified that the price had crossed the dollar-a-gallon line.
So just two years ago, I noted that the highest I had paid for gas had been $3.59. Tonight I paid $3.96 at the same Exxon station that inspired the old post and thought: woohoo! - it's below $4 again.
It's the End of the World As We Know It...
